2011 LAMMY Nominations

Hey everybody, guess who was nominated for a LAMMY this year?

Not me!

Am I bitter? Not really; with over 900 fellow LAMBs in the running, I didn't really have high expectations. There's always next year, though.

I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to everyone who was nominated, though. Several of them are friends of mine, and all of them have pretty fantastic blogs. So I'm including all of the nominees here, with links to their blogs. I suggest you do yourself a favor and check out every single one of these great writers.

This list is taken from the official LAMB website.

I went my first two years as a LAMB with nada - keep the good work coming.

I didn't have any expectations at all! SUCK IT, OVERACHIEVERS!

@ Mad Hatter: Congrats on your nominations! No worries, it's going to take more than a lack of LAMMYs to stop me from writing!

@ Simon: Cheers to that!
