Respectfully Asking for Your Vote

Today is the last day to vote in the 2009 American Wine Blog Awards, the only real contest of its kind for the folks who tap away day after day with something to say about wine on the Web. If you're reading this blog, then chances are you read several wine blogs, and so you know a thing or two about what makes for good wine content in this alternative universe that some call the blogosphere. And if that's true, then I'd like to urge you to vote in these awards, as your opinion is the most valuable criteria in the success of the awards, and of the folks who stand to be honored by them.

Vinography is a finalist in three categories: Best Writing, Best Wine Reviews, and Best Overall Wine Blog, and I would be pleased if you felt like my efforts were worthy of your vote in any or all of those categories.

Regardless, I would strongly encourage you to vote in these awards, as everyone deserves support and recognition for their efforts.

Thank you. You can vote here for the next six hours -- until 11:59 PM Pacific Time on March 4th.
