Two Blog Nominations

Friday, November 02, 2007

Yesterday evening and again this morning, I was honored to learn that that this blog has been nominated for two awards.

First, there is the "Intellectual Blogger Award" hosted by An Unquiet Mind, for which this blog was nominated by Ergo of Leitmotif, who has himself won this award.

And then, through a comment by Bubblehead of The Stupid Shall Be Punished, I learned that my blog is in the final polling of the 2007 Weblog Awards among the "Slithering Reptiles" (its size category in the TTLB Ecosystem as measured by inbound links at nomination time). I am glad to note that Bubblehead himself is also a finalist in the next size category up from mine.

I would like to thank Ergo for nominating me for the Intellectual Blogger Award and whoever nominated me for the 2007 Weblog Awards (See P.S.). The nominations are themselves honors.

Voting just opened yesterday evening or this morning. From the Poll Index for this year's awards, you can navigate here to vote for Gus Van Horn and here to vote for The Stupid Shall Be Punished.

Vote early and vote often!

PS: It had somehow gotten past me that my mysterious benefactor in the blog nomination process was none other than Bubblehead! My belated thanks go to him, does my support and, I hope, yours as well.

Thanks for the endorsement! It looks like we're both winning at the moment -- me by a little and you by a lot. Good luck!

Gus Van Horn said...

You're welcome, and good luck back at you!

And thanks again for telling me about this.

Congrats Gus! You have earned it. Keep up the good work.

Gus Van Horn said...

Thank you, sir!

Congratulations! Doing good work is its own best reward, but it is sweet to be recognized for it as well. Just don't let it go to your head - partying with Brittney etc. I do look forward to your acceptance speech.

"Vote often"

This is not a joke folks - the polls actually allow and encourage voting more than once, so by all means!

Gus, I've voted for you already and will continue to do so. Also, I've put up a link on my blog, encouraging my readers to do the same.

You definitely have earned a win. Keep fighting the good fight!

Gus Van Horn said...

Thank you both.

And yes. The Inspector is right. Every 24 hours, you can (and should) vote again, or I won't get to party with the woman who shaved her own hair off!

Congratulations! That's terrific and quite well-deserved.

"Every 24 hours, you can (and should) vote again, or I won't get to party with the woman who shaved her own hair off!" Um, okay, whatever floats your boat.

Britney, baby!

I am good for 2 votes so far, Gus. I plan to keep on voting and keep that pesky recipe site from sneaking up on you!

Yes! Thank you! I don't want to get slow cooked -- or should that be SCRewed?
