Despite everything, we got nominated for several Jewish Israel Blog Awards. This years undertaking has been fraught with complications and difficulties for the organizers who have had to fight off cheaters employing bots as well as Turkish hackers who hacked their home page, the usual disgruntled comments etc. Theirs is a thankless task and despite my disdain for such awards, I went through the site and discovered a whole new world of cool blogs and perspectives.
So… go ahead. Check out the categories for which we’ve been nominated. Check out other categories. Vote for us, don’t vote for us, do what you like but understand that I support the guys who run the JIBs and that I think it’s a worthwhile exercise.
As Esther mentioned previously, do note that Michael’s blog KosherEucharist, has been nominated in several categories (with massive disclaimers about the perviness of the content!!) as well. You all should really piss him off and vote for him. That would be awesome – I am not going to point you directly to where he’s been nominated because he’ll kill me as is, but find him and vote (MATURE CONTENT, NOT FAMILY ORIENTED!). Esther is also too modest to point out that JDaters Anonymous has been nominated in the Best Humor Blog category. Show her some love.
Don’t forget to also vote for OyBay as Best New Blog because Tomer is THAT cool. Help the new bloggers out… Let’s also not forget MidEast Piece – vote for John and Matt’s blog here – but remember, it’s a homo blog and organizers of the JIBs have seen fit to let you know that it’s not “family oriented,” because we all know that the homos are the enemies of family.
Did I miss anyone? Leave a comment and let me know. Did you come across any cool new blogs? Tell us about it!
