Last year, I had the amazing honor of being a finalist for “Best Kept Secret” in the 2008 Bloggie Awards. It was a really cool experience and I was even at SXSW (for work) during the awards ceremonies. No, I didn’t win, and that’s OK because, really – it was a totally fun experience from beginning to end. OK, maybe the end wasn’t so cool – the very end – where the guy who beat me told me in my concession post that he mostly lied in all his posts. Hrmpf. That’s kind of hard to swallow since I am patently honest here, but at the same time, it again goes to show what I was saying in my latest Twitter post, that there is something – and someone – for everyone here in the blogosphere.
So. Why am I blathering on about this? Because it’s time for the 2009 Bloggies.
And I figured, since you have to nominate multiple people, that I could give some suggestions if you are having a hard time coming up with ideas on who to nominate. And stuff.
Now, PLEASE. I am just suggesting some people who I think are awesome. I don’t mean to hurt anyone’s feeling by leaving them off, putting them in a different place than they might, or not suggesting the people *you* like. In fact, please use the comments to suggest other awesome bloggers for people to check out and nominate. I really would like this post to be about the love. I am also skipping categories I don’t have strong opinions about.

And now it’s time for you to go to work. Nominations close JANUARY 12th. Go to the 2009 Bloggies link and scroll right (and right and right and right) and there are all the nomination slots. You will have to provide a valid email and do the whole captcha + confirmation rigmarole, so please follow through.
And again, these are just MY thoughts. Nominate who YOU love!
Just spread the love, peeps!
