    damn… I was all ready to vote until you said that. :(

  2. Meg Marco says:

    @mercurypdx: Vote anyway. We love you.

    What I want to know is, what are you going to do with the whole $20 that you win, if you win?

  4. Yankees368 says:

    I tried to vote, but they want me to vote for all these other off-beat topics where I’ve never seen any of the sites before. I will not vote for other random sites just so I can vote for the consumerist. Too bad, I really want this site to win, but not at the expense of inflating the votes for other sites.

    I was all Consumerist/Gawker votes all the way, until it asks for a verify email, and then no mention of/link for a privacy policy regarding said email.

    Sorry, but that’s no-no consumer behavior, bloggies site.

  6. Ben Popken says:

    @Yankees368: You only have to vote for a minimum of 3.

  12. MercuryPDX says:

    @Meg Marco: I did. :P

  13. MercuryPDX says:

    @Yankees368: They don’t you can just vote for what you want, they’re not all required.

  14. snazz says:

  15. qwickone says:

  20. Joafu says:

  21. InternMary says:

    Congrats, guys!

  22. teh says:

    @savvy999: Funny, I did the same thing. The Consumerist has taught me well.

    Anyway, congratulations on the nominations!

  23. what the heck.. Treehugger and Consumerist (the two I am familiar with) are up against LolCatz? That’s sort of insulting.

  24. EtherealStrife says:

    March 10th? Long time to wait. Anyway, best of luck

  25. @EtherealStrife: my birthday finally lands on something else!

    on a side note, consumerist and lifehacker have been nominated for similar awards way too many times! makes me feel bad to vote for one instead of another (and vise-versa)

  26. Dustbunny says:

    I can has kitteh pics pleez? OTOH, GoFugYourself is one of my fave snarky sites….I guess I’ll have to vote twice, once for each site…..

  27. Trai_Dep says:

    Gods, you pulled out the tactical nuclear device and it’s not even DEFCON 1 yet. Kitties? Pretty kitties? Pretty fluffy kitties??!!

    I’m a cheap tramp: I’m SO there.

    Uh, guys? Gals? …Kittens? Let’s crush Perez Hilton? Recruit friends-and-family? Multi-vote? Free iPods? Can we all agree that Perez. Must. DIE?

  28. Trai_Dep says:

    @Yankees368: Cough. Well the idea of the Webbies, bless their hearts, is that people will find unusual and deserving sites that they didn’t realize were so swimmingly awesome. Sites that often don’t have mega-buck ad budgets but DO have originality, charm and a unique voice.

    It’s okay: you have some time. Should scope ’em out. Bet you’ll end up bookmarking at least one. At least. :)

  29. Trai_Dep says:


    Substitute “Bloggies” for “Webbies”: same principle.

    PS: Gawds (and ballot-stuffers), please don’t let BoingBoing lose to Perez either.

    I took a 6 hour walk in the desert to find the truth and face the real me. I was being torn by two forces that ripped deep into my soul. There were kittehs and trolls tussling and laughing all around me until I realized that my true fate was finally upon me. I was stripped of all ego and only left with raw instinct and my ability to click. My final vote was for icanhasacheezburger for best topical site. ‘kiddin!

  31. i voted for consumerist; but i truly do love icanhascheezburger. i luv teh kittehs!

  32. LucyInTheSky says:

    it wouldn’t let me vote! i really really really wanted to vote for you guys but i can’t. ='(

    I hope consumerist wins something. but remember, it’s an honor just to be nominated ;-)
