I just received this,
Congratulations! One or more of your sites is a finalist in the 2005 Weblog Awards [Best Asian blog category], also known as the Bloggies. You can check out the list of finalists and submit your own ballot at 2005.bloggies.com.
If you’re attending South by Southwest Interactive this year, e-mail me back and tell me so I can plan out the awards ceremony. You can also arrange for someone to accept your award for you if you win.
I’ll admit, I thought it was a joke. But I just checked the website and actually it isn’t. I didn’t know I’d been nominated 😮 So, whoever shoved my name in the hat – nice one Good luck to all. Special shout to the ‘Best food weblog’ finalists:
All worthy – choose your poison and go vote. If I ‘know’ you and you’re in the Austin, Texas on Sunday March 13th for the Weblog Awards ceremony at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival, lemme know.
UPDATE: Just noticed Is my blog burning? is also a finalist and that Australian oddball at Spiceblog too – thx Reid. Plus, I also stumbled into this message at the Bloggies site while attempting to get in and cast my vote:
