    The winner of the 2008 LAMMY for Best Impression of J.D. Salinger is…

    Best Impression of J.D. Salinger
    This category, meant to award the blogger who may not post much, but makes sure that the few posts that come are worth the wait, was the 13th most active category, with 42 total votes spread to 32 sites by 24 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 16.7% of the voters, the lowest percentage of all the categories. In other words, it was a tight race!

    The winner of the 2008 LAMMY for Best Theme is…

    Your long national nightmare is over. It’s time for the awards to commence!

    As I mentioned yesterday, two awards will be given out each day for the next seven days, finishing up with the big kahuna (Best Blog) next Monday. The votes have been sent to the independent accounting firm and have been tabulated. Anyway, enough foreplay.

    Best Theme
    This was the 6th most active category, with 66 total votes...

  • A few really quick notes on The LAMMYS

    A few really quick notes on The LAMMYS

    * First of all, with a little less than 10 hours left to vote, a big thanks to the 33 people that have voted thus far. I know it’s a time consuming task, and I appreciate your effort. The voter turnout will just about match my expectations, which were admittedly high. Keep in mind that of the first 78 LAMBs, at least 3 sites are currently defunct, and a handful of others are live but totally inactive. So it’s close to 50% turnout...

    Last call for Chops

    If you don’t know how this works, read prior LAMB Chops posts by clicking the “Chops” button on the sidebar.

    (There’s a slight change to this, as Caitlin from 1,416 and Counting is going to be helping me out and taking over the Chops reins – details below.)

    Email Caitlin up to one post from your site or as many posts as you’d like from other sites from the week of April 27-May 3. She will...

    Time is running out! Voting for the LAMMYS ends Monday night at midnight Pacific time. Please don’t miss this chance to honor your peers (and maybe get honored yourself) as it won’t come around again for awhile.

    Here’s the link: http://www.misterpoll.com/polls/335421

    I promise to make no more than two or three more reminder posts about the LAMMY deadline. 😉

    Also, the deadline for entries into the...

    A LAMMYS Clarification

    I’ve seen in a few peoples’ LAMMY votes comments something about having to rush before the deadline and/or not being able to fully visit/judge the sites due to the deadline.

    I’m not sure where the idea is coming from, but the deadline is not until next Monday, May 5th. So please, take your time – you’ve got a week!…

    Email me up to one post from your site or as many posts as you’d like from other sites from the week of April 20-26. I will then use my editorial powers to pick the top ones – could be 5, could be 10 – I might settle on a given number once I see how many submissions I’m getting weekly....

  • Who will take it?

    Who will take it?

    It’s a tight race for Best Blog, with three or four horses running pretty close and 16 votes now in. Let’s get that number up to at least 25 by the end of the weekend. If you haven’t voted, what are you waiting for (besides having the time to inspect 75+ sites)?…

    The competition is heating up…

    I should have waited for Mrs. Fletch’s help on this, but she’s busy working. As such, I used the twin designing powerhouses of PowerPoint and Paint to make this masterpiece. Maybe she’ll make another later…

    In the meantime, if you want to pimp your site and make one of these, go for it and I’ll put it up (thanks to Mikey of Spaghetti Sauce and Sweet Peas for the inspiration). Let’s have some...

  • It’s time for the 2008 LAMMYS!

    It’s time for the 2008 LAMMYS!

    Judge your peers! Brag about your standing within the LAMB community! Win fabulous prizes! If the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences can recognize its own every year, so can the LAMB.

    Here we are nearly six months and more than 75 LAMBs into this little project, and it appears to be a hit. Mrs. Fletch and I were discussing potential future LAMB events one day (as we do quite a bit) and she came up with the idea of...
