While I was enjoying my trip to Pittsburgh last week, the finalists for the 2008 American Wine Blog Awards were named over at Fermentation. Some of my favorite blogs are among the potential winners, so congratulations to them.
If you're to scurry over to Tom's blog to vote for LENNDEVOURS in the "single-subject blog" category, I'm sorry to say that I didn't make the group of finalists in that category this year. It's hard to know why, but it is what it is.
It's easy to argue with how any set of awards is run -- no one is perfect, so let's not turn this into a big deal. I write this blog for myself and for you, my readers. There will bed other awards in other years.
Who knows, maybe LENNDEVOURS just wasn't as good covering New York wines this year. It was a busy year for us at LENNDEVOURS headquarters.
