We’re ever so happy and humbled to announce that Truthdig has once again been picked as one of the five finalists for the Webby Award in the “Blog – Political” category! This year, the competition is formidable, with some serious heavy hitters, including Comedy Central’s Indecision, The Huffington Post, TheAtlantic.com Politics and Close Read on NewYorker.com. We are a small but tenacious team, and we’re honored to be included in a lineup like this.

That said, we’re making a play for the People’s Voice Webby, which is where our supporters come in, as it’s an award won by popular vote. Let your voice and choice be known on the official Webby site, where you can sign up directly or stay outside the registration fray by voting via Facebook or Twitter. From there, head to our ballot at the “Blog – Political” section (once more with feeling, that’s “Blog – Political”) and help us blaze our way to Webby glory.

This one’s for all of you, too — it’s our readers who inspire us to keep on digging. Cheers!
