2008 Black Weblog Awards Nominations are Open


The 2008 Black Weblog Awards is back for a fourth year, bringing you the recognition of the best and brightest in the Black blogosphere.
I am respectfully requesting that you, my readers, NOMINATE my blog! I cannot nominate or vote for myself, so I am depending on you. There are 30 different categories.
I am requesting that you nominate me for:

23. Best Science/Technology Blog
This category is for blogs which feature content about biology, chemistry, physics, technology, the Internet, and the various realms of science.
SES: Science, Education, & Society http://sciedsociety.blogspot.com

I am supporting other blogs for the following categories. Please check them out.

4. Best Blog Post Series
This category is for a series of posts in a blog about a particular topic. Posts can be fiction or non-fiction, but post series must be linked by a common and identifiable theme with the ability to skip forward or backwards through the series (for judging purposes). Don't make us have to hunt for them.

I love your blog Torrance. If you can tell, that's not all of the categories. I haven't submitted my nominations yet, so of course you're still in the running.
But I'm having a hard time figuring out your category...They need a "keeping it Real" category.

The Urban Scientist said...

Aha...I got you -- Best Personal Blog...You are very generous and share so much about your personal life and thoughts with us.

Good luck Jones.
