A note about the Mobbie Awards

You will notice that RedMaryland (along with a number of other blogs) were nominated for Best Political Blog in the Baltimore Sun's Mobbie Awards. In the still unofficial standings, RedMaryland finished fourth. I think we can take a small sliver of pride in this considering we were the highest finishing blog that wasn't actively pleading, begging, groveling, and otherwise engaging in some sad self-promtion to its readership to win themselves a relatively meaningless award.

I, for one, was actively subscribing and agreeing with Adam Pagnucco's assesment that the award itself is meaningless and that the Sun was savvily playing the blogs for suckers in an order to bring eyeballs to their website.

I'll let RedMaryland's readership and our influence in the political scene speak for itself over some relatively pointless online polling....

Thank you to all those who supported us in the Sun poll.

Having said that, however, I think our editorial stand not to whore ourselves out for a meaningless award from the Baltimore Sun only enhances our integrity as the premier conservative blog in this state.

Maybe the blogs should hold a contest to determine the best MSM sites. Some of them seem to need readers more than we do.
