The Riverfront Times has confirmed what we always knew to be true: Girl, You Lost Your Weave is the Best Blog in St. Louis for 2010!
From the RFT:
Oh, girl. Is there any greater joy than uttering those condescending yet fond words? Thanks to the Girl, You Lost Your Weave blog, we all have an excuse to say them in the course of our daily Internet browsing. This blog is a category unto itself: Unlike most blogs, you won't find political rants, boring descriptions of daily life, photographs of food or tips for green living. What you will find, however, is snapshot after snapshot of nasty-looking polyester hair extensions: chunks of weave on the sidewalk, chunks of weave in the gutter, chunks of weave dangling from barbed wire. It's like a little piece of roadkill, adorning the streets of our fair city. Call it found art, call it schadenfreude, call it whatever you want — we call it the best blog in St. Louis.
To our knowledge, there is no statuette, cash prize or comically large check to accompany this award. (There is, however, a party honoring the winners, at which we likely will be made to pay a cover.) But it's still very cool, and we're grateful for the recognition.
Congratulations also are in order for our colleagues at the Job That Pays Our Bills:
• Best Reporter (Newspaper Division): Elizabethe Holland of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
• Best Arts Reporting: Sarah Bryan Miller of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
• Best Sports Broadcast Personality: Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
