You, dear readers, are here because you "get it." You most likely understand what is the point of a wine blog in the first place. You're out there (here? everywhere?) enjoying finding out about wine and exploring your passion in a new medium. Chances are, if you're like many readers, this is only one of several wine blogs that you read, or at least check in with from time to time.
We wine bloggers thank you for your continued support, and in that spirit of support I would like to urge you to participate in the third annual American Wine Blog Awards that are going on right now over at Tom Wark's blog, Fermentation. This set of awards aims to recognize the best of what the English-language wine blogging world has to offer, but it needs input from the most important people in the process: the people who actually read them.
The awards are currently taking nominations in various award categories (8 in all). What I need you to do is go over there and nominate any of the wine blogs out there in the world that you think are worth paying attention to. From the big names to the undiscovered gems, these awards can only be as good as the pool of nominees. If you've forgotten to bookmark your favorites, I've got a list that might jog your memory.
You can nominate blogs that you believe deserve awards in the following categories:
Nominations will be taken until February 8th. Thank you again for your support, not just of Vinography, but of all the folks who tap, tap,tap away here with wine glasses in hand.
A wine book like no other. Photographs, essays, and wine recommendations. Learn more.
