rock the vote…

Do you remember a time when “food blogger” hadn’t became a dirty word yet?

Thanks to Saveur Magazine, that era has been revived, even if briefly, with their second annual Best Food Blog Awards, which recognize the importance of the vibrant and rapidly expanding online community of food-lovers.  These awards not only index some of the most influential, online voices in food today, but are a reminder that not all food bloggers are bad apples.  I appreciate that.

I was recently notified by the editors of that magazine that they have selected my blog, along with five others, as a finalist in the “Restaurant and Dining Coverage” category of this year’s awards.  This is an unexpected honor.

I don’t ask for much from my readers, but I’m going to ask for your support now: Please vote for one of us by CLICKING HERE.

Regardless of whose box you check, please take some time to visit my co-nominees’ blogs:

Skillet Doux

The Delicious Life

The Girl Who Ate Everything

Also, if you have a Twitter or Facebook account, I’d appreciate it if you would put up a link to this post and encourage others to vote.

Thanks, Saveur Magazine, for the nomination.  And thank you, my readers, for your support!

You may have to register in order to vote (if you are outside the U.S. or Canada, the editors of the magazine have requested that you enter as a U.S. registrant).  Voting ends on Thursday, May 12.

  1. I gave you my vote, I am not familiar with the others, yours is the only blog of any type that I do read. My son-in-law got me started reading your blog because we are both from KC and he thought I might enjoy following your travels and the many places you get to dine. I have read your reviews of KC restaurants and agree with many and have some others we like better, but that’s to be expected. I especially enjoyed your thoughts on finding a good steak in KC, somewhat embarrassing to say the least. I wish you luck in the balloting, either way I will continue to read yours.

  2. Hey,
    I voted for you as well. Really one of the best food sites on the web. The insidsscoop portion of the chronicle used one of your photos from wd-50 today. Keep up the excellent photos and writing.

  3. Love the site, but why haven’t you ever been to Mexico? You’re missing out on some great food!
