From the reports I have read it looks like the first CatholicCon is a great success. So congratulations to the crew of Catholic Underground and all those involved in pulling it off. I already really wanted to attend and reports from Father Z only made this more so.
Last night they announced the winners of the 2011 Catholic Media Awards and you can find the well-deserved winners here. While I was already fans of the winners, some of the nominees provide me with blogs to add to my RSS Reader and follow. It has been great watching the Catholic blogosphere grow over the years. Plus of course other new media efforts like Catholic podcasting.
Though in other Catholic awards news the 2011 CANNONBALL CATHOLIC BLOG AWARDS™© are still accepting votes and this year I am quite happy to be nominated in the category of Best Potpourri of Popery. Being that part of the criteria is that the blog must not be as good as the Crescat’s own blog this is still quite the honor. My plan to get shut out of the Catholic New Media Awards and somebody taking pity on me worked!
