The other day I got a tweet from friend and foodie extraordinaire FatGirlHedonist (that’s one of the fun things about being a blogger, it’s like we all have superhero names). Anyway, she let me know I’d been nominated for The Miami New Times 2013 Web Awards for Best Fashion Blog (BTW, she’s nominated for Best Food Blog, show her some love, won’t you. Her Instagram feed is temptation x 100.). So I clicked her link and there it was, number 14 with Electric Blogarella typed out in a blue link. How exciting. My blog is coming up on it’s two-year anniversary next month and to be recognized for the love and time I invest in it fills me with a joy I just have to blog about. To be named alongside the likes of my blogger sisters Annie, Ria, Steffy, Vannia and Giselle is amazing. In the end, it doesn’t really matter who wins, it’s an honor just being nominated (I’ve always wanted to say that). The bigger honor, really, is being noticed for what we are doing here in the community. As far as I am aware, this is the first time The New Times has ever nominated fashion blogs in its web awards. That’s a huge achievement for those of us in Miami who dedicated our time and passion to blogging. So, no matter who wins, it REALLY IS AN HONOR JUST BEING NOMINATED.

I’d really appreciate it if you would take some time to vote. Check out the link here. You have until November 5 to pick your favorites. Happy voting. (And if you pick me I’ll love you forever—really!)
