Unfortunately, we were not chosen “Best Local Blog” in The Austin Chronicle’s 20th Anniversary Best Of Poll. That honor went to The Austinist for the second year in a row, I believe. So, congrats out to them.
Now, I’ve only seen the online results which were released yesterday, September 3, 2009. See the results here. I haven’t had a chance to pick up my own physical copy. Hopefully, I can still pick one up and they won’t go so quickly.
I wanted to say Thank You to all popolio.com supporters and to those who voted for us. Also, to J.W. Richard, Mandrake Arts & Media, and Mandrake Soceity Radio for providing a foundation and continued support. All I can say is, there’s always next year. I did think of us as a bit of a dark horse just because we haven’t even been around a year, yet.
Our birthday is right around the corner, though, and it’s officially on September 15, 2009, but, remember, we’re celebrating with our One Year Anniversary Mixer on the 19th. Don’t forget the celebration of Mandrake Society Radio’s 5th Season the next day in Dallas.
Again, thanks to all. I hope you continue to enjoy popolio and hope you stick with us through Year 2.
