Food Blog Awards 2005

Holy Moly! My nine months at the helm of this blog have brought many surprises and delights, but perhaps none greater than today’s. Just a few hours ago the finalists of the ‘Oscars of food blogging’ were announced at the Accidental Hedonist, after weeks of deliberation and painstaking research by the panel of judges. I can hardly believe it (and in fact keep refreshing the announcement to make sure I haven’t been hallucinating!), but I have the incredible honor of being named a finalist in FIVE separate categories for the 2005 Food Blog Awards! They are:

Best Overall Food Blog – Reader’s Choice

Best New Food Blog

Best Food Blog – Writing

Best Food Blog – Recipes 

Best Post - Reader’s Choice

I am, of course, stunned as well as humbled to be in the company of such gifted writers, photographers and cooks in this competition. There is amazing talent represented here – please spend some time getting to know all the nominees before casting your vote. Also, if you haven’t already, take a few minutes to peruse the original nominations in each category – there are many, many deserving blogs that were nominated but didn’t make the final selection.

I would like to extend a huge heartfelt thank-you to everyone who nominated me in the first round, as well as my limitless gratitude to Kate, Meg, Owen, Derrick and Paul (aka the judges) for selflessly giving up their own eligibility for an award in order to labor for weeks (during the holidays, no less!) to come up with the finalists. But most of all I can’t say thank you enough to all my readers – both old and new – for making this tiny little corner of the web what it is. Your feedback and enthusiasm mean the world to me, and have enriched my life incalculably over the past nine months. I hope The Traveler’s Lunchbox has enriched yours.

Update: The 2006 Weblog Awards have also started taking nominations, and this year include many categories relevant to food blogging. You have until January 10 to submit your nominations!

  1. Many congratulations! I’ve only recently discovered your blog, but you clearly deserve the nominations – your writing, recipes, and photography are all wonderful. Good luck, and I look forward to reading more!

  2. Absolutely, my dear. Your site, and the chance to know you through it, has definitely enriched my life this year. Congratulations!

  3. Congratulations on your nominations. I love your site and you are truly a tremendous writer (not to mention cook!).All the best to you!

  4. Well, let’s see… voted for you for Best Overall Food Blog – Reader’s Choice; Best Food Blog – Writing; Best Food Blog – Recipes; and Best Post – Reader’s Choice. Also was one of the many that nominated you for some of these. :-) (Sorry, as the "competition", couldn’t vote for ya for Best New Blog, but smart money is on you or Nicky to win… hmmmm… maybe Monkey Gland (Jam-faced) and I should start taking wagers on these awards. Food blog bookies? Heh heh.) CONGRATS!

  5. You deserve all the kudos. Best of luck and thanks for your blog. It’s really lovely, as well as informative and beautiful. It’s always fun to read what you’re up to. Good luck!

  6. Well darling, your blog has inspired and been admired from the very beginning. You have provided me with endless entertainment and wonderful things to eat, you deserve all the rewards that are coming your way! Here’s to an even more fantastic 2006, I can’t wait to see your future creations!

  7. Melissa, thank *you* for nine months of delicious reading! I couldn’t be happier to hop over and vote for you. Kudos, my dear, five times over!

  8. Congratulations Melissa! Your blog is beautifully done, one of my absolute favorites, and you certainly have some votes from me!

  9. Aw, shucks… How can I possibly thank you all enough for this? If I were a blusher like some people I know, I’d be fire-engine red, but seeing as I’m actually a weeper… well, you do the math!

  10. CONGRATS!!!! Had I not discovered your blog, I would not read food blogs at all. Those I had seen prior to yours simply weren’t interesting. In the last few months I’ve done a lot of research to find others that are on the same level — and they simply don’t exist. A few good posts here and there, but nothing as consistently awesome as what you put out. So as far as I’m concerned you deserve every award you’ve been nominated for. Keep up the good work, and I’m looking forward to a lot more of the same in 2006!

  11. Hi Melissa, It recently occurred to me that the awards must have been announced but I can’t seem to find them anywhere…I was so happy to find you’d been nominated in several categories…I read your blog regularly. And find it so interesting, so inspiring, the writing so elegant. I’m truly amazed that you can find the time to try all these unique recipes and work on your dissertation. Well, you’re a winner in my book no matter what. Best, mari

  12. Being nominated for 1 category is great. Being nominated for 5 food blog categories is something else. Win or lose, what is important is you are passionate about what you are doing and that you know you are in the right direction. Congratulations for a job well done!Jane Darwin Sushi
