Black Weblog Awards Juding Begins

judges_badge.jpg I join an esteemed panel of judges who are assisting with weeding down the finalists and determining the winners for the Black Weblog Awards. If you missed out on nominating your favorite black blogs, at least you still have time to vote for the finalists.

The Black Weblog Awards are a different entity entirely from The Black Web Awards that culminates with an event on November 3 in Baltimore. Perhaps next year both of these activities can come together.
