Odds & Ends: Black Weblog Awards Edition
If you haven’t peeped my sidebar, I’m a “Blog to Watch” finalist in the 2008 Black Weblog Awards. The word “honored” is just not strong enough to explain how sassy that makes me feel! The nomination has taken me from high-on-life to a little self-conscious and back all week long. Common sense says that I should keep writing, ask for your votes in this final round, and . . . well . . . keep writing. But back to the voting thing, please oh please do so here!
In order to submit a vote for What Would Thembi Do? you also have to vote in all of the other categories. I’m sure you already have some favorites, but this week’s Odds & Ends features some tasty posts from the finalists that I personally endorse. Enjoy!
Blogxilla was the first blogger to link to WWTD – we started blogging together and look at us now. He’s a wild dude who I sort of wish lived in Philly, but I’m also glad he doesn’t because he’d get me into real trouble. Need proof? His “Cinderella” is up for “Best Blog Post Series”. Scandalous.
My girl Claire writes the impeccably stylish blog The Fashion Bomb, which is up for “Blog of the Year” and “Best Style/Fashion Blog”. She’s on her way to Paris and London (I’m hatin’!), and she shares her suggestions for travel essentials in this great post.
PostBourgie, is, from start to finish, the “next” way for us to talk politics and news, and the writing is impeccable. My favorite is their post on the “irrefutable truth” that Wesley Snipes hates black women. I won’t spoil the surprise, just get over there and read it.
Hampton06 found WWTD after randomly Googling Lynne Thigpen, which makes me kind of proud. His blog is up for “Best Personal Blog” and as one of my readers and someone who clearly understands that black sitcoms are in crisis, he deserves your vote.
