The nominees for the 2011 Weblog Awards were announced this morning and we were delighted to find that we’d been nominated in two, count ’em, two categories!
UPDATE: The nominations period has ended. Thanks to all who showed their support for the site.
Tax Cat here, reminding you that today is the last day to vote in the 2009 bloggies. Consumerist has been nominated for Best Topical Weblog, where we’re up against other cats who know nothing of the tax code, and Best Writing of a Weblog. In fact, we’ve even heard that voting is the single best way to prevent an audit. Go vote now! (or get your files in order…) [2009 Bloggies]
The Consumerist has been nominated for “Best Writing of a Weblog” and “Best Topical Weblog” in the 2009 Bloggies. Let’s get out the vote and win this thing!
Nominations are open for the 2009 Bloggies. Gosh darnit, I think Consumerist deserves consideration for some of these categories. Despite severe staff cutbacks in the 4th quarter, we kicked some serious ass. And now, thanks to Consumers Union buying us, we’re back and better than ever. If you agree, put our name in over here.
Thanks to your helpful votes, we’ve become finalists for three Bloggies: Best Topical Weblog, Best Group Weblog, and Weblog of the Year. Hooray! Now we need more of your votes to seal the deal. Head on over to 2008.bloggies.com and if you think we are deserving, select the little buttons under our names for the various categories. If we win, it will be a sure sign that America is “taking The Consumerist seriously.” Oh, and cats – If we win, on the day that it’s announced, all the post during that day will be illustrated with cat-based photos. Voting closes on January 31st.
It’s time to nominate blogs for the 2008 Bloggies, which awards the best blogs on the planet, and darnit, we think should at least have the honor of being nominated. If you agree, head over to 2008.bloggies.com and submit our name under one of the categories. Something like Best American Weblog, Best Topical Weblog, or Best Group Weblog might be fitting. It’s mainly for bragging rights but there’s a possibility we could win 2,007 cents, which we pledge to only use to buy all the site editors burgers.
