Bloggers get their own Tony

For some strange reason this blog has been nominated for the “Best Latino, Caribbean and South American blog”. I am surprised that I made the cut for a recognition that I did not even know existed. I was even more surprised that Miguel, or Alek were not in the list (other good Venezuelan blogs are in Spanish and thus cannot qualify, I suspect). Having been working so assiduously on this blog for so long is in large part due to their example as they started before I did and kept going on strong. They should be ahead of me in any contest.

But so it is and this page is the one running. Considering how much Venezuela needs exposure let’s be happy that at least one of us made the cut.

In the run, there seems to be only two blogs properly from South America. Two are from the Caribbean, and the rest seem to be written from the US.

Whether you want to vote for this blog (after all it does promote Venezuela even if not all agree on this kind of promotion), you can still visit the site and check the nominees as it will be a review of so many interesting blogs around the world, in so many different categories. A fun experience by itself. You also get to vote once a day (they seem to control better their voting system than the Venezuelan CNE where some folks seem to vote several times a day). And if you dislike this blog you can still go and vote for the other guys to make sure they beat me, though you will find that I am probably one of the most liberal ones listed there! After all being anti Chavez does not mean, contrary to popular belief, that one is a conservative: we come from all sides but we are all real democrats, suffering from allergies to any autocrat that crosses our path.

Thus you can vote here, everyday if you please, until December 12.

Comments policy:

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

3)COMMENT RULES:
Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
