The Bloggies are the web’s longest-running non-profit, reader voted weblog awards. It’s like the Oscars for bloggers, but with no golden statue at the end. And like the Oscars, it’s an honor just to be nominated!
For the second year in a row, 8Asians is one of the five finalists for Best Group Blog in the 10th Annual Weblog Awards (aka the 2010 Bloggies)! It’s pretty cool to be listed alongside The Huffington Post, Lifehacker, Serious Eats and Momversation. We’re also one of the few Asian American blogs that have ever been nominated. Yay, us!
Since we’re up against such stiff competition, I’m going to take a a moment to do a short “It’s great being nominated” speech:
*ahem* Thank you to all our commenters, contributors (both regular and guest), and other online friends for your participation and support of this blog. 8Asians is a total team effort! Even though we strive to show to diverse viewpoints of Asian Americans/Canadians, it’s great that we can all come together despite our differences to do amazing things! It’s such an honor to be recognized by other bloggers for what we do, but we couldn’t have done it without every single one of you. *hug, hug, cry, cry*
You can head over to 2010.bloggies.com to vote for us this week. Voting closes Sunday, January 31st at 10 PM, EST.
