The Scholarly Kitchen has been nominated for a Webby Award!

This is the 14th Annual Webby Awards. The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences gives out these awards to reflect excellence in blogs, new media, and other digital content.

What does this mean? Out of dozens or hundreds of entrants, we’ve been shortlisted among the Top 5 Business Blogs. Other nominees in our category include:

That’s pretty good company.

Now, the people take over. That means your vote can help determine the winner in this category. All you have to do is go to the Webby’s People’s Voice site, scroll down to Marketplace, then “Blogs – Business,” and vote for us. There is a registration process that’s part of this, but as you’d expect, it’s simple, and the Webby people aren’t spammers.

In fact, even the Webby acceptance speeches are famous for their brevity — Webby Award winners are asked to make five-word acceptance speeches. For example, Jimmy Fallon’s consisted of simply “Thank God Conan got promoted” and Al Gore intoned “Please don’t recount this vote.”

Winner’s will be announced May 4th, and you can vote until April 29th, so there isn’t much time to vote. We’ll appreciate any support we can get, so please pass this along. We’re up against some mainstream blogs, but we can make some waves!
