Yes We Can! Cast Your Vote in the 2008 Weblog Awards

Voting for the 2008 Weblog Awards begins January 5th, and continues through January 12th. According to the voting rules, you may vote every 24-hours in each pole. So, please, please, please cast a vote each day for Nuvision for a Nuday. Did I say please?

There's alink in the side bar that leads you to the voting pole for Best Diarist of 2008. But so that you don't have to work too hard, I'll be glad to post it right here. Being nominated was great! However, winning would be fabulous. So, join me in my quest to get Nuvision for a Nuday crowned with the honor of being the home of the Best Diarist of 2008, Angela L. Braden.

While you're voting for my blog, take the time to cast a vote for some other worthy bloggers that truly deserve to win in their particular category. Allow me to endorse a few.

For Best Blog, I recommend a blog that kept me informed and connected the entire 2008 presidential election. In my opinion, the Huffington Post is hands down the greatest mainstream blog on the web.

For Best Individual Blogger, I strongly recommend a blogger that I have followed and supported for the last two years. Wayne Bennett, who blogs at the Field Negro, offers hilarious, knife cutting, insightful political commentary. He leaves no rock unturned. This brotha deserves this award and many, many more.

For Best LGBT Blog, I actually recommend two outstanding blogs. Pam's House Blend and TransGriot

For Best Small Blog, I strongly recommend a blog that is by no means small in content and value. Black Women, Blow Your Trumpet!, is a fantastic blog, filled with brilliant commentary, thought provoking concepts, and critical analysis.

For Best Religious Blog, take the time to vote for Tariq Nelson.

For Best Very Large Blog, take the time to vote for Bitch PH.D.

And finally, for Best Hidden Gem, I recommend Zuky.

Take a look at all the 48 categories that are being voted on. Visit the blogs, and be sure to cast a vote. Perhaps later this week, I'll have some more recommendations. But as for now, I leave you with the task of voting for the above.

BTW: Most of the aforementioned bloggers are AA. So, their representation in this award is truly remarkable. And them being named a winner will be even more outstanding.

Before I go, let me encourage you again to vote for my blog, NuVision for a NuDay. Let's make Nuvision a winner this year!

Yes We Can!!!!

Hey there Angela {waves}

I thought that the voting starts today but I noticed the polls aren't opened yet!

I am excited to get the voting process going!

I am sure you are as well!

Of course, I have your blog linked at my blog, along with all of the bloggers you have mentioned!! (smiles)

I notice that you didn't mention the political blog, The Black Sphere. I just recently learned about this blog about two weeks ago.

Two sistas are nominated for the GLBT category so I am anxious to find out how that competition will turn out. Both of the ladies are absolutely wonderful bloggers and devoted online activists.

I really think Huffington Post will win in the "Best Blog" category but all of the finalists in that category should be honored to be recognized!

We'll see what happens!

Did you post your finalist announcement over on Facebook on the Sisterlicious page? All of the sistas need to know about your blog! (smiles)

Peace, blessings and DUNAMIS!

Although I am afraid I must support my friend Blue Girl in your category, I just wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog which I was unfamiliar with before the competition. I've added you to my blogroll, which isn't as much of an honor as it sounds because there are about 700 blogs on there, including most of the blogs you endorsed, but I hope the link will increase your ranking in Google and bring a few more people here. And I want to check back myself as often as I can. Take care.

Hi John!
Thank you so much for your visit and your kind words. And no need to apologize for voting for your friend, Blue Girl. That's what friends are for. Perhaps my friends don't know that. If they did, I wouldn't have less than 50 votes. LOL! I asked my friends to please go and vote for me so that I can at least lose with some dignity.
Thanks for passing me some link love. To be including amongst the 700 is still an honor for me. Especially since you, Mr. Swift, are one of the major players in this hobby/business/chore we call blogging.
Although I'm very familiar with the name John Swift, I have to admit that I've never toured your spot. So, for sure, I will pay you a visit and check out why so many on the web loves John Swift.
And yes, come back and join me at NuVision. Hopefully, there is something that can inform, enlighten, and encourage you.
Wishing you the best that life has to offer,
Angie Braden
