Texas Liberal Is 2011 Blog Of The Year—Let’s Make 2012 A Year Of Optimism And Hard Work

I have selected this blog–Texas Liberal–as Blog of the Year for 2011.

Loyal readers may recall that two years ago I chose this blog as Blog of the Decade. 

It seems a bit egotistical to award myself the Blog of the Decade title again so early in this current decade. It is only 2011.

So I’ll hold off on that for now.

That said— I do view myself as the front-runner for that prize to be awarded at the end of 2019.

For winning the title of 2011 Blog of the Year, I have awarded myself a picture of a trophy.

I realize that trophy may well look like the 1775 Nottingham Race Cup currently on display at the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

It is also the picture of the trophy for that is the prize for being 2011 Blog of the Year.

Thanks to everybody for reading the blog and for offering your comments.

For the year ahead–just as in the year now ending–the work of freedom and democracy is up to each of us.

Every Texan and every American has the ability to attend a public meeting, attend or organize a protest, write or call an elected official, talk to friends and family, start a blog, donate money, write a letter to the editor, volunteer for candidates and causes, engage in acts of civil disobedience, and to run for public office.

Let’s make 2012 a year of optimism, strong convictions and hard work.

And of course–to end blogging year the right way–here is the Occupy Wall Street website.

  1. I admire your humble reticence in only winning “blog of the year”. And I’m sure the competition was fierce. Congratulations!!!

  2. Ted–Thank you. Your blog is a great blog. http://jobsanger.blogspot.com/

    Will I see you in Houston at the Texas Democratic convention in 2012? It would be great to finally meet you in person.

  5. Congratulations on your prestigious award. Haters will accuse you of sleeping with the judge but pay them no heed.

  6. Ted—Great. Newton—I’ve yet to attempt to get the trophy for home. Citizenx—Yet also I am of two minds about things.
