I’m in a daze. I woke up this morning and routinely checked my email on my Blackberry Torch (and remember when I wrote about that so many months ago?) and started to scroll. I stopped and saw the official news. The Blonde & The Brunette has been selected as an Official Honoree for the Blog-Cultural category in the 15th Annual Webby Awards. First, a big thank you to all our readers! You’re following an industry-leading blog that has joined the ranks of the best and the brightest. Here’s the kicker: with nearly 10,000 entries received from all 50 states and over 60 countries, we were selected! I think we’re the only fashion and beauty blog.
What does this mean? Our brilliant group of blonde and brunette contributors has a distinct, remarkable fashion and beauty point-of-view that is chosen and recognized by the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences. The IADAS is a global organization whose members include director Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan), Martha Stewart, Huffington Post Media Group President Arianna Huffington, Twitter Co-Founder Biz Stone, musician David Bowie, Internet co-creator Vint Cerf, Virgin Group Chairman Richard Branson, and R/GA Chairman and CEO Bob Greenberg.
So keep spreading the word! You already know we simplify your fashion life because we’re your quick daily dose of fashion and beauty. But what makes us so unique is our great cross-section and cross-generational group of contributors. Thank you for your support and a special thank you to the B&B gals: Ashlee McNulty, Astrid Bryan, Jadan Huter, Kathryn Lebowitz (The Blonde), Kate Gaffney, Randy Fifield, and Susan Casden. www.webbyawards.com
With deep appreciation,
