It’s that time again! The annual blogger’s ball has gotten a Web 2.0 upgrade to include Tweeters and Facebookers… Plus it’s getting a spooky late start this year: Friday, Oct. 30 at the Pump Gallery in the Phil Mechanic Building, River Arts District.

Here’s my picks for 2009.
Best Food Blog
Oy, a toughie. I need to follow these folks to know who’s really the best of the excellent local food blogs I’ve found.
Damn, Asheville. You are not making this easy.
Best Craft Blog
Loving the crafty blog of local spinner, knitter and art director, Stacey Budge: UrbanGypZ
Sadly, my 20008 pick remains a best-kept secret: Eatbees Blog
The juggernaut: Ashvegas, the hardest-workin’ man in the blog business
Blogger I’d Most Like to Have a Beer With
Bruisin Ales Blog, of course!
Most Likely to Make You Laugh Out Loud
The classic: The Hangover Journals
the wonderful interpretive photography of Zenography
Blogger You’d Most Like to See Naked
I still say What the Hell?, whom I remind everyone that have seen in a red bikini, was robbed in 2007. PixieDyke naked in 2009!
A stumper. Suggestions?
Best Local Happenings
I’d say Ashvegas, but BlogAsheville has amped up the events coverage lately, and I love the new weekend roundup feature. And since I, uh, totally shot my mouth off, won’t you please vote for BlogAsheville? PLEASE.
It was always ScrooHoo, until head hooligan Gordon’s amazingly successful run for city council (go Gordon!). Now it’s anybody’s game.
I’m still fond of last year’s winner, the excellent Moon Meadow Farm.
Most in Need of a Redesign
George the Bastard
