2009 Catholic New Media Nominations Are Up, UPDATE: voting suggestions

Voting starts on June 1.

Can't vote for me, though...I wasn't nominated in the funniest blog category (sob!), or any other. I'll have to cherish my 3rd place finishes to dying bloggers and real life apologists in the Cannonball awards, and use it to stoke my humility and burning quest for holiness. Ah, the pains of going the airish, misunderstood, indie "Uh, I forgot to nominate myself" artiste route! ;)

Since I don't have a dog in this race this time, I'll probably share/suggest/persuade my picks in the other categories, when I have more time to digest the lists.

UPDATE: well, since I'm vacating the premises for the month, I'll at least plug two that I think deserve some serious consideration, and I will vote for myself. Although I despise LOLspeak (and I can't overstate that enough, frankly), LOLSaints is very clever, makes me smile, has a kind spirit about it, every single post is a humor post, and its educational to boot. They are nominated for funniest and I think best new blog. Also, an "all round blog" that deserves more traffic and a vote is Aggie Catholics, the Texas A and M campus ministry blog, which does a bit of everything, and all of it well. Without prejudice to other excellent blogs--give them a look and a vote!

(T-wit, t-woo, t-weet.)

It is also worth noting that they still failed to put in an Eastern Catholic category. It's been asked for, but they seem to not think it's worth doing.

Get the "real bloggers' award here

Josephus--that's a shame.

ArchAngel--very cute! and it moves!

@ Josephus - Well, someday perhaps.

@ Ironic Catholic - thanks for the plug!

Thanks for the plug. We (humbly) will take all the publicity we can take (okay, it wasn't so humbly taken).
