Vote Dude (Maybe) In the 2010 Wine Blog Awards – But At Least Just Vote

Vinted on May 25, 2010 binned in about 1winedude blog, wine blogging

OK, so there’s this Wine Blog Awards thing going on right now. 

Maybe you’ve heard of it?

I’m honored that has been included as a finalist by the eleven secret judges  – supposedly secret so that we couldn’t bribe them I guess, but then that’s illogical since by definition we wine bloggers don’t make enough to bribe them!

Joking aside (which admittedly is very, very tough for me), I am humbled and honored to have this blog included as a finalist in the category of Best Overall Wine Blog, especially given the talent, passion and quality behind the other folks nominated / finalized in that category.  I work hard at the blog, and it’s nice to be noticed – it’s equally nice to see so many people I consider to be friends who are also finalists in the various categories – it’s like getting made in the mob or something (ok, not really).

Now, it’s up to YOU to determine who will win in each category.  Voting ends on May 30.

I’d be thrilled if you “Vote Dude” but mostly I’d like to ask you simply to vote, period.  This is your chance to help honor and encourage those wine blogs that you personally feel are making a difference in the world of wine.

Congrats and good luck to all of the finalists!

    Congratulations Joe. The nomination is well deserved, though I've got to say, having an ad with Jennifer Garner in it during the voting seems like cheating. Heck, I almost voted for you. ; )
