Last Call: Bold As Love & the Black Weblog Awards

Two more days to get those first round votes in and I’d really appreciate your vote.  Saturday, August 16 is it!  Again, the categories I’m suggesting you nominate Bold As Love for (’cause I’m not allowed to nominate my own blog) are:

  • Best music blog
  • Best culture blog
  • Blog to watch

If you’ve not already done so, you can click here to start the process.  The top three nominees in each category compete in the round of final voting, and getting in the finals would certainly help raise the profile of this blog and help build this community.

Bottom line: If you can spare a few minutes, I’ll appreciate it.  Thanks so much!
