Although still in my European vacation, I am now sitting in front of a proper computer and can give this post the attention it deserves. I wrote a post acknowledging the Ennie nominations from my blackberry in my hotel room in the dark after a whole day of walking through London, and it came out half assed. That’s why it’s been deleted.
First and foremost, I failed to acknowledge all the other nominees in the two categories I’m nominated in. My apologies to them, as it may have come across a bit arrogant, please know that it wasn’t the intent. I share the honor of being nominated in the “Best Blog” category alongside the following:
These are all wonderful blogs, and I am honored to be nominated amongst them, some of which are considered the elite of the rpg blogging world. I am especially happy for my friend Tracy from sarahdarkmagic.com for the Honorable Mention. Well deserved Tracy, you’ve built something special with your site.
In the podcasting category I am joined by the following nominees:
- All Games Considered
- Atomic Array
- Open Design
- Power Source
- The Gamer’s Haven Podcast (Honorable Mention)
Truth be told, I have not heard the majority of nominated podcasts, but that will soon be rectified.
So, I won’t lie to you, I am super happy and excited to be nominated. Getting invited to the party is good enough for me, I didn’t start this blog so I could win an award, but I won’t lie either and say I’m not proud of what I’ve accomplished in the past two years. This may even make me go to Gencon, which I wasn’t planning on this year.
Voting opens July 16th and runs until the 25th, so go out there and cast your vote. It’s going to be exciting to see who takes it!
