Nominations Open for Black Weblog Awards


The nomination process for the 2008 Black Weblog Awards are open from August 1-16. I encourage all villagers to learn more about these awards. However, the main thing is for you to take a moment to nominate your favorite Black owned/operated blogs.

Here’s who I nominated:
I took some time to try to identify a nominee for each category. I didn't know who to nominate for Best Fictional Blog, Best Food Blog, Best Music Blog, Best Teen Blog or Best Video Blog. I felt odd nominating my own blog ... but, the rules allow for it ... so I went with it.

Have you submitted your nominations yet?

Think2wice.org is ran by teens. I'm very proud of them.

Thanks for the nomination and i'm definitely gonna get my list together. You have to win atleast 2 because you guys are really doing your thing over here. Keep up the good work!

On the rules page...

"You cannot nominate your own blog. However, feel free to encourage your readers to nominate you. This also applies to finalists; you cannot vote for your own blog. All judges are ineligible to win any of the Awards for any of their blogs; this is accepted by them upon becoming judges."

I was going to nominate myself until I saw that. I could be wrong though!

Much obliged Villager for thinking of Sojourner's Place for this nomination. Really appreciate it! As always, I'm humbled!

Thanks for the nomination EV! I will go and nominate you because you can't nominate yourself. However I am sure someone else has already nominated you.

Villager said...

Necole - Thanx for the tip. I need to check that blog out. They are doing well on the BBR. I need to get in touch with your PR consultant to see if she wants to do some short-term work over next 48 hours for BDPA conference at the Hyatt hotel...

Villager said...

YBP & BWIE - Oops! I hope that it won't disqualify my other selections.

SJP - Just keep doin' what you're doin'! I hope you take time to submit your own nominations as well!

RDawg - It is hard to remember all the possible blogs when you have 1 shot at entering your nominations. Aren't you a defending champion already?

Butta said...

I'd like to submit SoulBounce.com as Best Music Blog for everyone's consideration. :)

Janet Shan said...

Wayne, thanks for the nomination. I must say that I learned a great deal from you and I am grateful for your support. I will definitely nominate some blogs that I visit a lot and love. Thanks again for being a Black Political Thought supporter and reader!

The Urban Scientist said...

Thanks Villager. I am honored..I've listed my nominations, too. Check out my page.

Villager said...

Butta - I'm sorry that I didn't think of your blog as I was making my nominations. I'm not able to go back in to make the nomination now ... so, I'm hopeful that other villagers will consider adding you to their nomination! Did you make your BWA nominations already?

Janet & Urban Scientist - You both earned the honor with your consistent quality posts on your blogs. Keep doin' what you're doin'!

Los Angelista said...

Great that you were able to think of one for almost all those categories. It surely takes some time to find good blogs for all those categories!

Torrance Stephens - All-Mi-T said...

Shelia said...

Yes I have submitted my nominations and you know that you were on my list too. You are always so supportive Villager, I appreciate it.
