Wanna check out the nominees?
The winners will earn a firm, virtual handshake, the pride in knowing that they've been named the Best of something by a fairly obscure blog, and the right to display the following on their site:
Person of Interest is a re-run the winners will be notified before 10ish pm Thursday night, in case they want to announce the win in their 7 Quick Takes. If Person of Interest is new I have no idea when the winners will be notified - it's going to be a busy weekend, one that starts with my favorite non-Masterpiece Theatre tv show.
The Sheenazing Blogger Awards are named for Venerable Fulton J. Sheen. Sheen
was amazing at using the newest forms of media to communicate the
beauty of the Catholic Church and his love of Christ to the world. I'm positive
that Sheen would be a blogger were he alive today and that he is in Heaven,
totally approving of this award.
Here's a little update: A few concerned readers have contacted me questioning some of the nominated blogs, pointing out the authors' discrepencies with orthodox Church teaching and faithfulness to our Holy Father and the Magesterium. Please know that I did a brief review of all nominated blogs because I did not want to promote anything which my husband and I do not actually support. I did not have time to delve into archives of 100 blogs, I did my best, and I apologize if I missed something. Next year - if I'm crazy enough to do this again! - I will add the category "Best Blog by a Heretic" and try to better stress that all other categories are for Catholic blogs that are orthodox. End update.
And a HUGE thank you to everyone who has participated so far. I only did this because I thought it would be fun and I've been blown away by how many people wanted to join in. I'm glad that we can celebrate and honor the excellence that is out there in the internet, cheering on our friends and role models.
I'm going to start this with the ending and you can read the middle if you want: on Thursday the 11th our first born will be having open...
