MilBlogging.Com's 2006 Milbloggie Awards
I just found out that I'm nominated for the 2006 Milbloggie Award in the USAF category. Where have I been?! Thank you to whoever nominated me.
Now that I know I'm a nominee I have until 27 February to get schlep for some votes, so here it goes...
Vote For Me!!
If I win I promise to buy the adult beverage of choice to anyone who can provide a valid I.D. and can track me down at the Wright Brothers Bar down the road.
Okay, now get out there and do your duty!
Now back to reality. There are some pretty good Army, Air Force, Navy, and Military Supporter blogs out there, and Milblogger.com has done a great job in organizing the community. There are some great blogs that are nominated that could really use your votes, especially in the Army blog category.
As for this site, since I'm not deployed and currently flying a desk it's hard to write about what our brothers and sisters in arms are doing out in Southwest Asia. The one thing I would love to do with this site more than anything is to restart Arthur Chrenkoff's 'Good News From Iraq' posts. Once a month he would gather all of the great news that wasn't being reported, and combine it all into one excellent post that was a must read among all of us in the military who knew what was really going on, but just couldn't' find it.
I attempted this idea once, and it was so so, but it took a hell of a lot of work and time... more time than I had at that moment. This year I'm going to try it again, and maybe I'll get better at it as I continue the effort.
We'll see how it all goes.
In the mean time be sure to get out there and vote for your favorite Milblog site.
