My The New Book Review, www.thenewbookreview.blogspot.com was named a Brillante WebBlog Premio 2008 award. Nikki Leigh at www.nikkisreviews.blogspot.com nominated it because it features "reviews for all sorts of authors, not just big name authors." She also noted that the instructions for submitting are clear.
The same day, the same award was given to SharingwithWriters.blogspot.com by Jewel Sample, www.jewelsamples.blogspot.com. She's a writer and appreciates getting helpful articles on promotion, craft and editing.
The Brillante is a sassy little award, a recognition that lets peers award peers. One of the benefits of being so named is that authors may nominate blogs, too. See my nominations at www.sharingwithwriters.blogspot.com.
