Thank you to Doug Ross, who is himself one of the very best bloggers out there. I go to his sites every day for my news and you should as well.
The moment you’ve been waiting for is here.
The votes are in. The anxious nominees’ fingernails have been chewed down to the quick.
Winner – 2013 Fabulous 50 Blog Awards And at least one blogger just excused himself to go to the bathroom (number two, apparently, based upon the length of time he’s been gone).
So we’re more than pleased to announce the winners of the 2013 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 promote conservatism, free market capitalism, fiscal sanity, the sovereignty of the individual, and otherwise protect America from the cockroach-like Statists — some in very unique ways.
So, without further ado, may I have the envelopes, please?
