Oh you guys, thanks! Not Martha has been nominated for Best Art or Craft Weblog and I couldn’t be more flattered! Especially since I feel like all I’ve been doing lately is putting up links. I’m with fantastic company – Posie Gets Cozy, Angry Chicken, Post Secret and Apartment Therapy. Seriously, I’m blushing right now.
I’m surprised to find I’m familiar with a lot more sites in all the categories this year than I have been in previous years. Here are my picks which I post in the hopes that you will vote for them as well.
Best Web Application: WordPress, because I use it and it’s nifty.
Best European Weblog: Chocolate & Zucchini, because I’ve been reading it since it started and Clotilde is a really great gal, and I love her book.
Best Photography of a Weblog: equal split for Dooce, Smitten Kitchen and 101 Cookbooks. I don’t find it surprising that two food blogs made the list, food photography = porn for this Catholic raised girl from the midwest.
Best Food Weblog: Gluten-Free Girl and Orangette! Because they are both fantastic, both live here in Seattle, and (having met both of them) are as nice as could be.
Best Fashion Weblog: I’ve been peeking at Jezebel and Go Fug Yourself a lot lately.
Best Entertainment Weblog: Television Without Pity, because they’ve always been there for me in times when a freaking helicopter falls on my favorite cranky doctor on ER and I cannot believe it either. And because their writers work so hard to give entertaining, detailed recaps.
Best Writing of a Weblog: Dooce and Waiter Rant have both been keeping me entertained for years while giving me insight into how people work.
Best-Designed Weblog: Dooce or Design*Sponge, both had great redesigns last year.
Lifetime Achievement: Mighty Girl or Heather B. Armstrong (Dooce)! Both are amazing women who make me laugh.
