Did you just read that? I did! *pinch*
I am so excited. This is the first time that the Guild of Food Writers have recognised blogs explicitly – they have had a broader new media award which was difficult for blogs to compete in as it was usually very big sites that made that shortlist, with rare exception. A blog is an individual and imperfect adventure, it is not sub edited and anything beyond that is something else. It gives me a warm fuzzy feeling that not only have the OFM recognised us with an award, so too have the GFW with this.
Anyway, I am quick to ramble. I am obviously thrilled to have made the list and congratulations to my two wonderful co-shortlistees (is that even a word?). I look forward to raising a glass with you on May 30th and may the best woman win.
