This has been quite the past couple of weeks for the Bilerico Project. First we had three of our contributors make the Out 100 - a prestigious feat unmatched anywhere else on the web. Congratulations are in order for Lane Hudson, Joe Solmonese and Mike Rogers for making the list! The editorial team did interviews with the Washington Blade this week too for a story about our site. And now today brings more good news!

wa2007150x75ws7.jpgThe Bilerico Project is a top ten finalist for the 2007 Weblog Awards Best LGBT Blog! What an honor to be selected for the Academy Awards of Blogging! We've all worked hard to develop the site into a national gathering spot where you can find the best commentary on LGBT issues side by side with entertainment, advice columns and general wackiness. Plus, two of our contributors also made the cut for their own blogs. Pam Spaulding's Pam's House Blend and Terrance Heath's Republic of T are both finalists as well. Pam has won the category for the past two years running.

Other finalists include friends of the blog Joe.My.God. and Mombian as well as Gay Patriot, Average Gay Joe, Susie Bright's Journal, Keith Boykin, and Fetch me my axe. Voting opens tonight for your favorite LGBT blog of the year. Of course, no disrespect to Terrance and Pam, but I'm very much hoping that we take the top prize; it would be nice capstone on our re-launch. *grins* Winners will be announced next week, so we're counting on all of you to vote early and vote often - and tell all of your friends to vote for us too! Let's see if we can't knock Pam off her (well-deserved) perch.

This is really great. Just a few months ago we couldn't even get onto the list of finalists for one of these awards that have 24 finalists. It's overwhelming how fast we've developed into an LGBT blog that people are reading.

And even before we were not making those awards, I was reading other sites that got them and trying to get someone, anyone, to come and visit my blog at all. This is good stuff.

Please vote for us, readers! This would make me happy.

That's because we boast some of the best writers, commenters, and readers in LGBT-relevant media, Alex. Personally, having only been a part of the Bilerico Project for just a few short months, I'm continually impressed by and proud of the high level of content we see here on a daily basis.

I love Pam's too, but this nomination (and hopefully, our victory) is an honor everyone who participates here shares. C'mon gang, vote for us...all of us! :)
