The suspense is over. At approximately 7:30 Tuesday, we logged on to watch the 2013 Baltimore Sun Mobbies Award Ceremony. With the kids glued to Looney Toons in the living room, my husband and I huddled around the laptop at the dining room table, waiting to see if the words “And the winner is…” would be followed by the words “Big Biscotti Bake.” Seconds after we logged onto the streaming video, the first award was announced. Big Biscotti Bake was voted the Best New Blog! WOO-HOO! While my husband and I celebrated, reveling in our new-found stardom and dreaming of an impending book deal, the kids asked us to be quiet because they couldn’t hear Bugs Bunny.
As you know, probably because we offered a few friendly reminders, Big Biscotti Bake was also nominated in the Best Food Blog category, where we came in second place. We were edged out by Let’s Give Peas a Chance (love that name), who won the Best Food Blog category last year as well.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you to everyone who voted and helped spread the word. There were some great blogs in the running and we are excited to be a part of a vibrant blogging scene in Baltimore.
