I can’t believe it! I just CAN’T believe it!
Startcooking.com has been nominated for a “bloggie award” in the 7th annual weblog award competition, as one of the five finalists, for best food blog.
I’ve been doing my “happy dance” ever since I found out.
I am truly honored to be in the same category as my fellow nominees.
Here’s how it happened. From January 1, 2007 until January 11, anyone was able to nominate their favorite weblogs. That Monday, 200 randomly selected voters received an e-mail, listing the weblogs that received the most nominations in ten random categories.
They had until January 21 to privately submit their five favorites for each category. The five receiving the most votes became finalists. (I still can’t believe I was one of them!) On Thursday, January 25, the finalists were announced and voting is open again to choose the winners.
Voting is now open to everyone (yes, that’s you) and will close at 10:00 PM EST on Friday, February 2. The winners will be posted on Monday, March 12.
Go check out all the nominees and, of course, please vote for me!
To vote, scroll down to the food category nominees. Then you click the small circle above the startcooking.com image. Naturally, you can vote in as many of the other categories as you wish. (By the way, this is a really great way to discover some fascinating blogs on other topics.)
At the bottom they will ask you to type in some letters (to prove you are not a machine) and then put in your email address. To finish the process, you must click on the email that will show up in your inbox.
