Blog Finalists

This Friday is the Christian Web and New Media Awards 2009 over in London. A while back I blogged about receiving an email saying that I had been nominated and was one of the finalists. Despite repeated checking on the site, nothing more appeared, with no list of finalists.

Church Mouse now has the exclusive list of the finalists for each category (H/T to DMK), so I'm able to see who else was selected in my category of best blog. You can check out the other four finalists, and try to see which of them will win - I haven't heard anything more, so I know I'm not the winner or runner-up, as the top two were being told and then invited to attend the awards ceremony on Friday night.

The five finalists are:

That I May Know Him
Bible SEO
Love Undefiled
Dave's District Blog
The Reverend Garibaldi McFlurry (who?)

Five very different blogs - I think mine is probably more general, whereas the others seem to be more focused on theology all the time. Which one will win? I'm thinking Dave's District. Good mix of photos and text, and a range of good subjects. What do you think?


  1. To be in the top 5 is a massive achievement. Well done Gary.

  2. Hi Gary,

    Congratulations. This is Christian from BibleSEO. It is truly privilege to be part of the finalist group.

  3. Hi Gary,
    as another fellow finalist please accept my warmest good wishes and congratulations too. And many thanks for discovering and sharing the awards info from 'Churchmouse' and for your kind and encouraging words about my blog. I shall be at the awards ceremony and look forward to meeting the other successful finalist there.
    love and peace

  4. Thanks for the comments! I was delighted to reach the final five - more than I expected. Wonder who the other top two place went to?

    All the best for tomorrow night Dave. Looking forward to a blog about it all!
