2004 Food Blog Awards

Kate at The Accidental Hedonist has come up with a groovy new idea–the Food Blog Awards, inspired by the lack of attention to food blogs in the Bloggies (and who knew there even was such a thing as a “Bloggie”?) There are 14 categories, including everything from Best Post to Best Group Blog. Nominations are being accepted now through Dec 19, and once I’ve had a chance to think over my choices, I’ll be posting my list of nominees here.

In the meantime, though, some exciting news (for me, anyway): Sam at Becks & Posh has nominated Words to Eat By in the category of Best New Blog! An extremely kind and generous gesture, especially considering that her own smart, funny, fascinating blog is in the same category. Thanks, Sam! According to Kate’s rules, she’s hoping to have 3-5 finalists in each category, based on the number of nominees. I think this means that I have to do a little shameless campaigning here: if you’re enjoying my little blog, please click on over and nominate me in the comments section.

That’s all for today. Tomorrow is Sugar High Friday, and you know what that means: Pumpkin Bread Pudding!
