"Best Baking Blog" – I'm a Finalist!

foodbuzz_logo_sm

Grab your favorite cookie and celebrate with me! I found out yesterday that Brown Eyed Baker is a finalist in the “Best Baking Blog” category for the first annual Foodbuzz Blog Awards. Foodbuzz received over 3,500 nominations for food blogs in a variety of categories and the top 5 blogs receiving nominations in each category became the finalists. Talk about shock and awe when I found out I was a finalist! I am beyond flattered  that my co-finalists are Bakerella (queen of the cake pop), Joy the Baker (one of Times Online Top 50 Food Blogs), ZoeBakes (Zoe, co-author of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day), and the ever-popular CakeSpy. Good company, indeed. To be mentioned in the same breath as any of these supremely talented foodies and bloggers is a reward in and of itself, so a great big THANK YOU goes out to any of you that may have nominated me. It means quite a lot to me and what I have achieved thus far with Brown Eyed Baker.

You can read about the announcement HERE.

And now a shameless request for your vote, if you feel I am deserving and you are so inclined. You do not have to register on any websites and you can only vote once, so the process isn’t labor-intensive. You can vote by going HERE.

(If you aren’t familiar with other categories, don’t worry, you don’t need to select one for each category. Brown Eyed Baker is listed under the “Best Baking Blog” category.)
