Voting begins today! As you know, the My Faith and Fitness Blog has been nominated for a 2013 Black Weblog Award for Best Faith-Based Blog. This is the second year that we have been nominated. I am honored to be in the number. The first round of voting runs from today until Thursday, September 26th. Please vote for the My Faith and Fitness Blog and spread the word to your folks. I would truly appreciate it.
The Black Weblog Awards was founded in 2005 to give recognition to Black bloggers (and those of the African diaspora) which were largely overlooked by other Internet award events online. What started out as a barely-known event has now grown into an international showcase. With participants from over 90 countries, the Black Weblog Awards stands out as one of the most widespread Internet award events for Black bloggers.
To date, the Black Weblog Awards has recognized nearly 180 blogs in over 30 categories. The Awards has also been featured in several mainstream and online media outlets, including NPR, CNN, and others. Winners of the Black Weblog Awards have also went on to appear in other media outlets, like MSNBC, the Huffington Post, BET, and many others.
