Today I feel a bit bouncy
In case you didn’t know it, LAMB is an organization for movie blogs, with currently about 1200 members including me. Among many other regular features, LAMB runs a yearly award for blogs. There are 15 categories and the winners are chosen by the members.There’s no lack of talent and dedication among the members, so the competition is fierce to say the least.
The election is run in two steps. In the first you make the nominations and in the second you vote. And now to the news that made me so happy yesterday:
When the nominations for 2012 were announced, it turned out that I was one of five candidates for the category “Best New LAMB“.
You can imagine how surprised and happy I was about it! Of course the award will most likely go to someone else in the end, so that’s why grab the opportunity now to do a bit of humble bragging and bounce around a bit before we know the outcome.
If you’re reading this and are one of the LAMBs who nominated me, I just want to say: thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you! (If I win the next round, I promise to do a more eloquent speech, but this will have to do for now).
And if you’re reading this and aren’t a LAMB member or didn’t nominate me, I want to thank you too.
Every regular reader and commenter at The Velvet Café has a part in this nomination. If it wasn’t for you, I would have run out of steam a long time ago and this place wouldn’t exist. It’s as simple as that.
