Okay — this is surreal.
After coming home this morning from another graveyard shift at the hospital, I plopped onto the couch with my laptop to surf the Interwebs. This is what I saw on Saveur’s website:
My jaw dropped. The editors of Saveur Magazine have selected Nom Nom Paleo as one of six finalists for Best Food Blog in the “Special Diets” category! I don’t know who nominated me, but whoever you are: Danke schön!
According to Saveur:
We received nearly 40,000 submissions in 16 categories for this year’s Best Food Blog Awards, SAVEUR’s third annual celebration of the best writing, recipes, and photography the web has to offer. We clicked on every link, scrolled through thousands of pages, and read posts sweet, silly, weird, and wonderful. Sometimes we were moved to tears, sometimes we laughed out loud — and sometimes we couldn’t close the browser window fast enough. Based on your nominations, we’ve narrowed the field to six in each of our sixteen categories. It is our pleasure to present this year’s finalists, blogs and stories that represent the very best culinary content found online.
For an obsessive foodie like me (who first subscribed to Saveur in the late ’90s), the mere thought that the editors actually visited my little site — and liked it enough to select it as a finalist — makes my head spin. I’m truly humbled to be considered alongside all these other wonderful bloggers.
BUT: I’m not here to tell you that “it’s an honor just to be nominated” (even though it is) — because I WANT YOUR VOTE!
The editors of Saveur picked the finalists, but it’s up to you to do the voting. Please click here to check out all the other incredible finalists, and to register and cast your vote for me. Let’s keep spreading the Paleo gospel to the foodie masses!
[IMPORTANT NOTE: For your vote to count, you must register first. (I know — it’s confusing — but just clicking onto the Nom Nom Paleo photo and getting the red check mark isn’t enough.) Once you register, you’ll see a big red voting button at the bottom. Select Nom Nom Paleo, and then hit that button, and you’ll be all set. Thanks again!]
