This blog has been nominated in four categories in the upcoming annual Blog Asheville awards held later this month. Wow!
I was actually a big fan of BlogAsheville before I became a contributor, so I am delighted to be nominated for anything involving that community, much less for four things.
The backstory here is that Asheville, my hometown and still my city, has a large and active blogging community mostly centered around BlogAsheville, a group blog with a lot of contributors. Last year was the very first BlogAsheville awards ceremony, at a party that is and remains officially known as Extravablogiversapaloozathon (see above), probably for its general fabulousness.
Here’s the categories I’m nominated in, and the other nominees:
Best New Blog
She Who Eats
Most Deserving of Wider Recognition
The Charm of the Highway Strip
Listless on Lexington
Blogger I’d Most Like to Have a Beer With
Susan from Easy Bake Coven
Asheville Beer Blog
She Who Eats
(Whoever wants to have a beer with me, just send email. I’ll meet you at the UNCA caf after my poli sci class and we’ll smuggle in some brews in my backpack.)
Good luck everybody, and see you on the 29th!
PS: If you want to look for me at the party, I have short curly black hair and look like Delta Burke’s shorter, fatter, younger sibling. I do not look anything like you might think someone would look who writes what I do, but there you go.
