It’s official! After two months of soliciting your votes for the nomination and then for the final voting round, FlavorDiva.com has won the award for Best Food Blog for the 2009 Black Weblog Awards . FlavorDiva.com is the winner of both the Popular Vote and the Judges’ Vote, and I’m so grateful.
Thank you to everyone who voted and encouraged others to vote. Also, thank you to all of my regular readers who have been with me since I first started this blog one year ago , and to the many new readers who have since joined me in my quest and culinary journey to reclaim the all too rare flavor and art of great home cooking. I hope my blog inspires you with engaging photography and writing, and provides you with helpful tips, easy to follow recipes, cookbook reviews and interviews.
This blog has led me to meet new people all across the country and forced me to follow through on my own message by cooking more often despite my tight schedule. Maintaining a blog is a lot of work, but this past year has been very rewarding for me and I aim to bring you even more in the year to come. Your votes and my winning the 2009 Black Weblog Awards (challenged by four other nominated blogs including one of my favorites – The Duo Dishes ) just help to encourage me further and let me know that there are folks out there who enjoy one of my passions and love what I’m sharing.
