It's like the Iowa straw poll, without empty promises, corn dogs, and millions of dollars in signage.

Catholic New Media Awards

I'm a nominee in the 2011 Catholic New Media Awards!

Well, THIS is unexpected. Thank you to whomever out there nominated the Ironic Catholic for Most Entertaining Blog!

But it's especially surprising since I didn't even know the Catholic New Media awards were happening this year (and missed the nominations period entirely). I don't think I'm alone in this, because the lists look pretty thin to me--although there are some excellent blogs on there. But some great ones are inexplicably missing! I emailed the good underpaid (actually, I think UNPAID) folks setting this up, asking for an extension of the nomination period, but I suppose they must need to go ahead with their schedule to allow winners to be announced at CatholiCon.

Anyway, given someone in the know cared enough to nominate the IC blog, please, go ahead and vote for this blog --if you are so inspired. A few tags of recent material if you want to read and pronounce judgment...

Fake News and Satire
Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction
Light Amusement

I had seen these talked about, but this post made me sign up and vote for you! I knew some of the other blogs, but lots I didn't know.
