Who Knew? Nominated for a Best Blog in Maryland Award


A lot of surprises have come my way since I started this blog last January. But this may be the most unexpected yet: My "other" blog - All Top Chef - has been nominated by the Baltimore Sun for its Mobbie Awards, in two categories - foodie and pop culture.

ATC is a national blog run by a team of bloggers. It's headed by Baltimore-based The Minx (which explains the Maryland connection), whose "other" blog (among several), Minx Eats, has also been nominated. And Blogging Project Runway founder Laura Kluvo contributes podcast interviews with each week's eliminated Top Chef (or Top Chef: Just Desserts) contestant. I'm just the new kid on the block, putting together weekly (or so) news, etc. posts and wrangling the ATC emailbox. I was honored and excited to be invited to join the ATC team, even if it has proven to be a lot more work than I anticipated and taken time away from my own blog. While I can take no credit whatsoever for these noms, it's still a kick, and I'm grateful to be in the company of these fine folks.

Online voting for the Mobbies ends Nov. 12, 2010 at 5:00 p.m.

Updated: You'll find a little shout-out on ATC to one of my new local favorites, Fork Heart Knife, here.

Former ATCer Kit Pollard is also from Maryland, as is Neal P. (Who is also my husband, aka Mr Minx.) You're doing an amazing job for us, and I so appreciate your time and effort! If the Mobbies involved a cash prize, you'd certainly get a share of it. :)

Ciao, I wrote this on my replies too, but I just copy it here, so you can see it:

Thank you for your lovely comment Eggy! I really appreciate that you found the time to read all my blabbering, and write such a long and feeling comment.

And you never know, the world is small, we may be in the same hemisphere sometimes :-)

ciao and XXXX
