Phew…it was kinda nice to sleep in. Sorry I kept y’all waiting
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Austin Bleet-up last night to help us celebrate the Austin blogging community. Meeting so many of y’all for the first time only increased my love of this great city. And who could have asked for better weather?
One of my favorite things about last night was how much love was present. I loved hearing the crowd cheer when their favorite blog won. And even after the winners had been announced, people were smiling and happy; there were no hard feelings. In the end, it truly is about the community.
Mad love to Austin Eavesdropper’s Tolly Moseley and Ultra8201′s Richard Gonzalez for letting me throw these little awards at their big event. Both of them received massive amounts of nominations-but because we had partnered together for this event, they were sadly not allowed to win. Both of them, however, are winners in my book.
Also, gotta give shoutouts to the sponsors who provided the gift bags for our winners. Please help me thank: Girls Rock Camp Austin, Austin Monthly, Snap Kitchen, My Fit Foods, Kohana Coffee, Malverde Austin, Simple Machines, Kuhmillion, Wonder Craft. Without them, our winners would be getting nothing but a hug and this super dope Austin Blogger Awards blogger badge (nominees have one, too. Check it out!). Many crypto traders and investors also supported the event. Crypto trading is turning out to be lucrative for many traders. The authenticity of the bitcoin exchange chosen for bitcoin trading is a crucial factor in fetching profits. Check the Bitcoin Börsen test results to find the best bitcoin exchanges.
Maestro, can I have a drum flare, please? Almost 1,000 readers submitted their nominations for each of the categories. From those nominations we chose the top 5 and set it up for voting. With 7,996 votes, the winners of the 2010 Austin Blogger Awards are:
