UU blog awards down to the wire.

UU Blog Award Winner, 2006Update 2.11.06: Winners are announced! In a nail-biter, this blog was voted Best UU-Themed Blog and Best Links. I'm very grateful for the honor and for everyone who voted — but I'm much more pleased to see the community of Unitarian Universalist blog-writers and -readers keep growing in numbers and quality. You can keep up with all the UU blogs (and other RSS-generating UU websites) at UUpdates or follow a more selective group at the UU Blogs Digest. And, if your UU-related blog isn't already in my Guide to UU Blogs, please leave a comment or send me email. Keep up the good work! And congratulations to all the other winners and nominees!

Original post: Okay, readers, we're coming down to the wire on the second annual UU blog awards. This humble blog is up for six awards, but let's face it: In the categories where I'm currently polling only, um, 2% of the vote, I don't really see a comeback happening. Unless you all rally by Friday night's deadline, dear readers, and send shockwaves through the Interdependent Web.

But — and this is why I'm coming to you on bended knee, all humble-like — there are two races in which I'm still a contender: Best Links and Best UU-Themed Blog. This is where you come in. Even Mrs Philocrites promises to cast a vote. Losing won't be awful because the competition this year is so excellent, but I gotta give you that last nudge, folks.

Previous: Best church radio ad. Ever.
Next: The cowardly superintendent.

What about creating for next year a category for "Best blog in non-English language", as they do in the Oscars ceremony? This way, those of us who live in the outskirts of Anglo UUblogdom would feel somehow recognized.

I think that's an excellent idea, Jaume.

Dear Philocrites

If you say the Holy Name a million times, then losing won't bother you - this is absolutely guaranteed! But it has to be a real holy name.

Good luck in the contest!
