Results from 2008 Catholic Blog Awards


Well, I’ve got good news and bad news. The bad news is that I didn’t win first in any category. The good news is that I did place is almost every category and came in second for “Best New Catholic Blog”.

Congrats to creativeminorityreport.com for winning the “Best New Catholic Blog” category.

The big winner this year was clearly: What Does the Prayer Really Say? who won most the categories.
