Vote for Us. Or Else. [Sticky Post.]


Last year we were finalists for the Best Culture Blog at the Black Weblog Awards only to fall short in the end. Since then, we’ve added more contributors and have generally become a smarter, sharper site.

We trynna win it this year, but we need your help. All you have to do is vote for us here.

Thanks and be easy!

    Where do I vote? Sorry if I’m daft, when I go to the site it just looks like a lot of blog posts.

  • Winslowalrob

    How come I did not get nominated for best Black Weblog Awards? I have been gunning for those things ever since I was a little girl!

  • blackink12

    Fam, do you know how jealous I am that you found this “In Living Color” video? I’ve been hunting this one down for about two years.

    Great stuff! It actually made my day.

  • Leigh

    Cool. I just voted. I also added you all to my toolbar as the group blog I go to on and off all day. Good luck!

    I can’t vote!!! The man doesn’t want PB to win an award!

  • Susana

    I got a mysql error because I unchecked “subscribe me” to their follow-up blog. Couldn’t vote til I checked it again. Dirty trick.

  • BlackWomenBlowTheTrumpet

    The web site states that the voting begins on August 1st but there is some confusion online already because so many blogs are posting the badge without adding in the starting date of the voting. I made the same mistake and then I added the voting start date under my badge.
