Gotta nominee? Statesman's "Social Media Awards"

A few days ago, Austin freelancer extraordinaire Alex Richmond (who has her own fab blog, Austin is Delicious) let me know that she nominated That Austin Girl for the Texas Social Media Awards, hosted by the Austin American-Statesman. (Thank you, Alex - what an honor!) I wanted to let you all know about the contest too, as the deadline for nominations is today. I think it's great that traditional media is now recognizing the power of bloggers to shape public opinion, get the word out about deserving artists, or rally niche communities' fervor for street fashion, electronic music, vegan cuisine or whatever your personal obsession may be.

If you'd like to nominate someone for these awards, here's a list you can use for reference. So many awesome bloggers in this town. I just went and nominated a few myself! You can do so here.
