The 2013 Black Weblog Awards were held in Houston, Texas at the Ensemble Theatre this past weekend, and among the winners was none other than this site, Good Black News! GBN is a bit chagrined that even though we knew we were nominated for Best Political or News Blog, we didn’t discover until today that we actually won our category! (Our e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org, has been down for several days but is back up as of a few hours ago).
We unfortunately were not able to attend the ceremony (as always, money and time are tight and GBN is still a non-profit labor of love) but are thrilled nonetheless and want to share this accomplishment with you, our loyal readers and followers. Without your support and votes, this win would not have been possible. Sincere thanks to this year’s volunteer contributors Becky Schonbrun, Ashanti Hutcherson, Gabriel Ryder and Terry Samwick, tech consultant and web genius Andrew Lin, and lastly vast appreciation to our Lifestyle and Fashion Editor Lesa Lakin for her film and television reviews as well as her keen eye for fashion, culture and current events.
GBN looks forward to continuing to build and grow in the new year, and bring you even more original, multimedia content in 2014 and beyond. Thank you again for your readership and support – we are forever grateful. Onward and upward!
