I'm thrilled and humbled that Vinography has won Best Blog Covering Wine, Beer, and Spirits for the second year running at the 2005 Food Blogging Awards. The winners were announced a couple of hours ago in all categories.
I'd like to thank you, readers, for your votes. I get to interact with some of you through your comments here and the e-mails you send me, but I know that there are thousands more of you out there, and I'd like to thank you all for your readership, which inspires me to keep writing.
I'd also like to extend a hearty congratulations to the other blogs that were nominated for this award this year: Fermentation, A Good Beer Blog, Lenn Devours, and The Scotch Blog. They are each excellent, dedicated blogs that deserve your readership.
In particular, I'd like to especially recognize Tom Wark's Fermentation, which has simply exploded with excellent content in the past year, and is now MY favorite wine blog. Great job, Tom.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
