WE WON! WE WON! WE WON! On Tuesday, November 4, I learned that the My Faith and Fitness Blog won a 2014 Black Weblog Award for Best Faith-Based Blog. This was our third year in a row being nominated in this category! Thank you for voting. Thank you for spreading the word and asking your friends and family to vote. I 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.
