Well, well, well, it seems to be the month of awards. The news came in lastnight that our very own political blog, Thought Leader, has been named a Webby Honoree at the 12th Annual Webby Awards, also known as the “Oscars of the internet”. Taking a quick look at the other sites that were also bestowed with this award — Thought Leader is in pretty esteemed company. The blog was named an honoree together with political blogs from the New Yorker, NY Times, the CNN political ticker and blogs from CNBC.com and CBS.com.
Our news in photos site was also named an honoree in both the newspaper and the photography section, together with Washingtonpost.com; New York Obeserver, Globe and Mail and Las Vegas sun. Nice to be mentioned in the same breath as these world famous online media brands.
The Webby Honoree says that this award places the Thought Leader among the top 15% of the 8 000 entries submitted to the Webby awards. This latest accolade comes hot on the heels of Thought Leader last month winning both “Blog of the year” and “Best political blog” at the local SA blog awards. It’s great to get the recognition.
