Two Days Left to Nominate for the 2010 Wine Blog Awards

If you’re reading this, you most likely understand 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 fourth annual Wine Blog Awards.

Originally conceived and hosted by wine PR guru Tom Wark, the awards have been handed off to the Open Wine Consortium to run this year. While some changes have been made (most notably the deletion of the modifier “American” from the awards, thankfully) this set of awards still generally aims to recognize the best of what the English-language wine blogging world has to offer.

But the awards need input from the most important people in the process: the people who actually read them.

The organizers 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:

Best Writing
Best Single Subject Blog
Best Winery Blog
Best Wine Reviews
Best Graphics, Photography, and Presentation
Best Wine Industry Blog
Best New Wine Blog
Best Overall Wine Blog

Nominations will be closed at Midnight on April 7th. So get cracking. Thank you again for your support, not just of Vinography, but of all the folks who tap, tap, tap away here in cyberspace with wine glasses in hand.
