I am cross-posting Doug’s awards. A big thank you to Doug Ross for doing this and compiling the list. I just want to say that I am so very proud of Trevor Loudon for hitting the list twice. Once for Best Blog Ring – The Watcher’s Council and once for The Ronald Reagan Award for Best Anti-Communist Blogger. Awesome!
The moment you’ve been waiting for is here.
The votes are in. The anxious nominees’ fingernails have been chewed down to the quick. And at least one blogger just excused himself to go to the bathroom (number two, apparently).
So we’re more than pleased to announce the winners of the 2011 Fabulous 50 Blog Awards, the most prestigious new media awards in the conservative blogosphere. Or, at the very least, in the 993 area code.
These awards recognize a variety of blogs and websites operating in the conservative hemisphere of the Internet, all of which have worked tirelessly to protect America from Statism — some in very unique ways.
So, without further ado, may I have the envelopes, please?
