Karen Hall posted a convenient list of this year’s winners and runner up in the 2007 Catholic Blog Awards.
The full award results are here along with vote totals. So congratulations to all the winners and to all the nominees. The number of great nominees were available in every category and in many cases any of the top ten would have been appropriate as the winner.
For those that voted for me in any category you have my heart-felt thanks. The reason we have the blog awards just before Lent is so that our egos can get down to a manageable size before Easter. I always loved the way people like Mother Angelica could let praise pass right through them and let it be redirected towards Jesus. I would love to do the same, but attributing my humor to Jesus doesn’t seem quite right. Though I really should since he wonderfully gave us the capacity for humor and the best of humor is that which has a large grain of truth. I was glad to see that newcomers to the funniest blog category The Ironic Catholic and Alive and Young also received many votes. There are relatively few Catholic blogs that specialize in humor though there are a large majority who dabble in humor at times. The great things about Catholic blogs is that you are not always sure when they will make you laugh, cry, or pray.
I was quite pleased to do as well as I did in the Best Political/Social Commentary Catholic Blog where competition is especially stiff. The Anchoress certainly deserves the win and she was the one I nominated and voted for. She is also one of the few members of St. Blogs that has a well-deserved large readership outside of the Catholic blogosphere.
