I have great news to report! The My Faith and Fitness Blog has been nominated again for a 2014 Black Weblog Award for Best Faith-Based Blog. This is our third year in a row to be nominated! I am honored to be in the number. Mark your calendars. The first round of voting begins Wednesday, October 1st. Please vote for the My Faith and Fitness Blog and spread the word to your friends. 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.
