Yours truly was privileged to be afforded posting authority shortly after PoliNation came online back in February of 2011. My dear friend Ting gave me a heads up when it began. Many of the people involved have been blogging buddies of mine for many years. We don’t have advertising banners and we don’t ask anybody to donate for anything. What we do here daily is exercise our freedom of expression. Chrissy and Bluebird are far more gifted than I am, but we put a considerable amount of effort in order to keep you informed and entertained. There were far more people commenting in the beginning and some of the threads were epic. Nowadays most visitors just lurk for whatever reason. We love what we do and plan to keep doing it as long as the Lord will allow.
Curmudgeon, the owner of Political Clown Parade, hands out awards each year for the top small blogs. We have been honored with an award the last two years. There are 20 medals given out each year and we came in #20. Bluebird also got one for her own page. There are thousands of small sites that toil in anonimity, but it’s nice to get a little recognition. What I’d like you to do, if you can spare 30 seconds, is to go to PCP and cast a vote for our little effort here.
Here’s the info:
On June 1, we announced the Fifth Annual Paul Revere Award to honor conservative bloggers whose work was filled “with the breathings of their heart.” They are the good people who feed our soul—who make us laugh at ourselves or life—and restore our buoyancy in a troubled world. They champion freedom of expression while holding down jobs, raising their families and/or selflessly providing care for loved ones.
These often overlooked bloggers deserve to be recognized for their work. What greater honor is there than to be recognized by their peers and loyal readers?
We’ve gotten a pretty distinguished list already, but there must be more don’t you think? Nominations will be accepted through midnight, Saturday June 10. Voting will begin on Sunday, June 11 to determine this year’s winners.
