Foodbuzz Food Blog Awards: Nominate Your Favorites!

I'm stoked... I just read today that Foodbuzz is sponsoring The 1st Annual Foodbuzz Blog Awards!

What's Foodbuzz, you ask?
Well -- it's just one of the best food communities available online. It's a great place to find recipes, peruse blogs, and commune with other like-minded folks. But, don't take my word for it, check it out yourself!

Now, you and I both know that there is scads of creativity and talent out there in the food blogging world. Lots of unsung heroes who spend their days toiling and their nights cooking up great food in the kitchen. Plenty of great folks who share themselves with us online -- and invite us into their homes to see what's cooking.

Give your favorite blogs a shout-out. Nominate them for a Foodbuzz Award!
And, I should add, we wouldn't try to stop you if you wanted to nominate Burp!

The nomination process began on Monday (and it closes on 9/30/09).
ANYONE can nominate a blog. If you read blogs regularly, consider nominating a few of your favorites. If you read less often, consider which ones you do read, and why. Nominate them! Got a friend who blogs?? Show your support through a nomination.

  3. OK -- I'm not the expert here... BUT, according to the guidelines: "Any blog appropriate for the category it's being nominated for is eligible for consideration for a Foodbuzz Blog Award. Blog nominees do not need to be Foodbuzz Featured Publishers."

    I don't see anything there that indicates one has to be part of Foodbuzz... but someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

  4. Wow. That's an overwhelming list. There are so many good blogs out there.

    I am so bad about paying attention to my FoodBuzz account. It's just so big and I'm never sure what to do with it.
