Remember when I was bugging you to help get Bleacher Nation nominated for a relatively big-time award presented by Blogs With Balls? Well, you’re the best readers on the ‘net (or I’m the best bugger), because we did it.
Thanks to your help, Bleacher Nation has been nominated as a finalist for the Best Team-Specific Site, alongside some serious heavyweights. I get to go to New York for the awards and everything.
I think it’s a testament not only to your efforts to send in those nominations, but also to the community we’ve built here. Oh, and also, I’m awesome.
Now comes the voting stage. I’ll say it again: the other finalists are, eh hem, large sites (they include: mgoblog (which is the biggest independent sports blog on the ‘net), the DC Sports Blog,(the Washington Post’s sports blog), the 700 Level (a huge Philadelphia sports blog), the Jets Blog, and the Florida State and Sacramento Kings blogs for blog monolith SB Nation). Some are many times larger than our own humble abode, so I’ll be leaning on you even more heavily to do your part and drop a vote for Bleacher Nation.
So, please go HERE and vote for Bleacher Nation (unless you truly want to vote for one of the other finalists). Much obliged.
