Electronic Village Nominated for 2009 Black Weblog Awards
Electronic Village is on the ballot in four categories for this year’s Black Weblog Awards: Best Culture Blog, Best Political/News Blog, Blog of the Year and Best Microblog. The top five vote-getters in each category become finalists. I hope that you will VOTE for our blog!
In addition, our 'Taser Torture' series has been nominated as 'Best Blog Post Series'.
The Black Weblog Awards was founded in 2005 to give recognition to bloggers of the African diaspora that were largely overlooked by other Internet award events online. What started out as a barely-known event has now grown into an international showcase. With participants from over 90 countries, the Black Weblog Awards stands out as one of the most widespread Internet award events for Black bloggers.
Winners are announced during the first week of September. We will work to ensure that all Black Weblog Award winners are included in the Villager's Black Blog Rankings.
