So the final results are in for the Jewish Israeli Blog Awards and while preliminary results indicated that we had totally roasted almost every category, apparently that is not the case – apparently y’all are a bunch of cheatin’ bastids and big chunks of the votes we received were invalidated. Well I guess we’ll all chalk that up to the inherent weaknesses of the one IP address/one vote/no cookies system. Or that y’all are in fact cheating bastids. But it’s all good. We shouldn’t have gotten ANY votes. Cuz we’re Mormons. And we don’t make use of cute kitty photos 😉
So here’s how we did:
Best Overall Blog: 3rd place
Best New Blog 2004: 1st Place
Best Group Blog: 2nd Place
Best Designed Blog: 2nd Place
Best Israel Advocacy Blog: 2nd Place
Best Jewish Culture Blog: 3rd Place
Cheating or no cheating, for a blog that’s been around a mere 8 months, we are all proud of the impact we’ve had. We placed in every category in which we’ve been nominated and I tip my hat off to my fellow bloggers, our visitors and the blogging community as a whole. Dave at Israellycool did a great job and we all owe him a debt of gratitude for exposing us to the full spectrum of the Jewish blogosphere. Congrats go out to the winners and all the participants as well. Good job.
P.S.: That’s Laya’s dog Oscar. Isn’t he just sooo cute?
