The 7th Annual Weblog Awards

by Matt on January 26, 2007




I mean, really. WOW.

Wow again.

The 7th Annual Weblog Awards have been announced, and I humbly announce that mattbites has been nominated as one of the 5 best food blogs in this year’s Bloggies.

Have you seen the others nominated? I’m not sure about you, but I feel as if I’ve already won just being nominated and being in such amazing company.

I just want to say thank you to everyone who reads mattbites. The love I’ve felt from each and every one of you over the past year has made my life so rich, and before I actually tear up over here I just want to say thank you.

I only hope I’ve given back as much as I’ve taken.

From the bottom of my toes to the top of my bald head….

I am so happy for you!!! You are THE winner in my book. Wish I could vote like a republican in Ohio (meaning about a 100 times, over again) but alas, I have but one vote, and its all yours!

You definitely deserve it.

Dont forget us little people.

Congratulations Matt, you definitely deserve it. You have been an inspiration for my site as well as others I am sure. Keep up the great work.

seeing how the link to your blog was always on every other food blog i’ve followed, that in itself says more than enough.
i love your food pictures and how the riot of colors brings them almost to life. i adore your tatts, eye for design/layout and your witty style of writing. always a joy to read.
you do deserve every itty bit of praise! dont start blushing now :)
