This is a Vote You Can Be Proud Of!

2008-weblog-awards-finalistFor three of the last four years, The Sundries Shack has been selected as a finalist in the annual Weblog Awards hosted by Kevn Aylward of Wizbang.

I’m pleased to say that this year makes four out of five as I’ve been nominated as a finalist in this year’s contest. This year, I’m competing in the Best Up and Coming Blog category (reserved for those with a Technorati Authority between 51 and 100). I suppose I should be a little chagrined that after almost five years, I’m still considered “up and coming”, but I’m glad to be a finalist and hope to do well this year.

Considering I’ve never finished better than eighth, “well” is a relative term.

Here is the voting link. The polls will be active some time today and you can vote once a day until January 12, 2009 at 10 P.M. I would very much appreciate your vote. This year I have a reasonable chance of winning and it’d be nice to pull it off.

UPDATE: Voting is now live!

UPDATE 2: I want to thank the bloggers who have endorsed me. I encourage you to vote early and often for them, as best you can, because they’re good folks with great taste!

As of the end of the day on Wednesday, I’m flipping back and forth between 5th and 6th place. The lead is not insurmountable, though. Please be sure to vote every day and encourage your friends to vote, too. It doesn’t take but a click of the mouse.
