I’m always a bridesmaid in these things, and never a bride, but I’m still beyond thrilled that John Hawkins included me as a nominee in the 11th Annual Blogger Awards for CPAC. I’m right there under “Best Kept Secret Award.” Indeed, right now, I’m so secret that the link is to my old WordPress blog. I sent a note to John about that, though, so I know it will be fixed soon.
I was also delighted to see that a lot of my blog friends got nominated too. I was especially happy to see The Mellow Jihadi as a People’s Choice nominee. Navy One has been a friend of this blog since before he started blogging, and he’s become one of my personal friends as well. I’m so delighted that he’s getting this kind of recognition.
Having acknowledged myself and my friends, let me say that John is spot-on in all of his selections. Each of the blogs named is a high quality blogs that deserves recognition for providing a true form of alternative media. If you blog, please consider broadcasting this list of nominees, since the more readership they get, the less believability the drive-by media gets.
The last thing left for me to do is to figure out how to lobby the CPAC voters for this one. I’ve got their beer and party favors all lined up…. 😉
