A few weeks back, I asked you kind folks to consider voting for AverageBro in the 2007 Black Weblog Awards. Since this blog's only really been around 5 months, I figured this was a long shot. After all, I'm a newbie, and I haven't exactly been as proactive with spreading the word about this this blog as I should be. So, I figured I had a snowball's chance of winning this thing.
Not so fast.
AverageBro didn't garner enough popular votes to win the coveted "Blog to Watch" award (congrats to RealTalkNY), but obviously we're doing something right here, because out of more than 7,000 nominations, we were selected as the winner via the equally (more?) important Judges' Vote. So, in a roundabout way, the people have spoken. AvBro is Official!
Keep it locked here in the coming months. I've got some BIG things coming soon to this blog. I hope you'll continue with me, enjoying the ride, on this journey.
In the meantime, tell a friend or 12 if you're feelin' what we're putting down here on the daily. You can always add us to your RSS readers, email articles (that little envelope below) to your peeps, leave comments, send AvBro an email, or join our Daily Email Digest (link above on right) just in case you've got one of those Day Jobs that doesn't allow you much Internet time (believe me, I know the pain).
Either way, stick with us, we're goin' places. Top of the World, or at least the Blogosphere.
