Sojourner's Place

say what? sojourner's place a 2009 black web award nominee?  

Posted by SjP in , , ,

I'm about to pass out over her at SjP's. I went to Black TV Online so I could cast my vote for fellow AfroSpear blog "Black Women in Europe" a nominee for the Best European Blog. After doing so, I decided to browse thru the other categories and cast my vote for several I knew would be nominated. I get to the Best Online Commentator and I see Sojourner's Place. I say to myself "d*mn! somebody done gone and stole the name of my blog!"

With a neck snap and a head roll I click on the url to see just how long this Sojourner's Place had been open. Operating on the "wish factor" I'm wishing this blog started after Januray 1, 2008 and is on blogspot. So, I'm sitting here waiting for this chick's site to load and D*AMN! Not only did she take my name, but....WAIT! Oh S*IT OH MY! SAY WHAT?! YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING! ITS ME!

Sojourner's Place has been nominated for the 2009 Black Web Award for Best Online Commentator. Given the quality and depth of other nominees in this category, well, let me just say that it is an honor just to be nominated.

I urge you to go to the 2009 Black Web Awards site and cast your vote for your favorite blogs. You'll find many of them nominated and you can even "write-in" your favorites. In fact, your blog may be among them - so you'll want to be sure and check. Voting ends in October and you want vote early and often. Here are some that you won't want to over look:

Best Black Website Directory
Most Important Site for Black America
Best Online Commentator
Best Black European Site
Best Black Blog Directory
Best Blog
Best Blog – Africa
Best Blog – Culture
Best Blog – Education
Most Original Blog
Best Lifestyle Blog
Best Business & Political Blog
Best Christian Blog
Best Gossip Blog or site
Best Site for Black Athletes

Congratulations to all of the nominees. All are very deserving...perhaps, with the exception of one {smile}. But, much obliged to the individual who thought Sojourner's Place deserving of such a distinguished honor.

Speak the Truth!

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old SjP ain't got nothing more to say.

I was also a bit surprised when I got nominated last year, just 5 or 6 months after starting my blog

I guess we never know who's watching.
