The 2008 Weblog Awards

Last Monday morning I got an email from my friend June over at Bye, Bye Pie. The subject line read: Congratulations!!!! I immediately thought perhaps I was pregnant and didn’t know it yet. Here is what her email said:

I just saw that you are up for a Weblog Award!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How cool are you!?! Congrats, girl! Perhaps I should have added a few exclamation points there. Your cool-by-association pal, June

I had to write her back and ask her what in the world she was talking about. I immediately went to the website and after scrolling down for approximately 17 minutes, I found my category listed just after Best Latino, Carribean or South American Blog.

Chatting at the Sky was nominated in the Best Small Blog category and judges (real judges!) narrowed it down to 10 finalists. And can you believe it? I’m one of them!

In true American Idol fashion, the blog with the highest number of votes wins. The polls open sometime today and stay open for about a week. There is a countdown widget on the site, but voting will begin sooner than that. We will be able to see the voting results instantly which is kind of nerve wracking and cool and panic inducing all at the same time.

Now, for the moment I know you’ve been waiting for:
That’s ME on the left and MY BIG SELF on the right, asking for your vote. I promise not to call you My Friends or joke about lipstick on pigs or befriend Rev. Wright. You don’t even need to leave your house. Just click here to vote.

Thank you for listening, voting and putting up with me. God bless you. And God Bless America.
