Massive w00tness!

The polls are now closed, and it looks like TSSBP won the "Best Up And Coming Blog" category in the 2008 Weblog Awards. The organizers will be checking the voting logs tomorrow to make sure there wasn't any skullduggery, and expect to announce official results on Thursday. I ended up winning by 515 votes, with 29.2% of the total votes cast in the category. Thanks to everyone who voted for me!

(I also won some movie tickets tonight from a local radio station, so it looks like I'm on a roll. I should buy a lottery ticket tomorrow.)

Update 1750 15 Jan: It's official!

Congrats! A thoroughly deserved win!.

I'm claiming "Best ANZ Blog not owned by Rupert Murdoch".

The two who beat me are Pro sites, both owned through subsidiaries by NewsCorp.

Congratulations!

I was more than happy to vote for your blog. I've really learned a lot about sub life from it. Well, more than what my husband is willing to share with me! Congrats again, well deserved.

Congrats Joel, and thank YOU for doing such a great job! I'm retired from active duty, and currently work as a Damn Navy Civilian. I read your blog every morning to keep a pulse on submarine-related issues.
