Full list of 2010 Florida Netroots Award Winners

in Statewide/The Bay and the 'Burg by

As always Joy Reid steps in to fill a new media gap, this time posting the full list of award winners from this year’s Netroos Awards. Of course, Joy puts herself last on this list, so let me write it up here about how Reid won the award for Best National Blog, meaning if you are not reading her stuff, you are seriously missing out.

On another note, thank you to Bella Brava and St. Pete Brasserie, the two dining establishments which pretty much sustain both myself — other than my mom’s insanely good cooking; she made Waldorf salad and gazpacho yesterday — and Netroots Activist of the Year Mark Ferrulo.  Just think, on any given weekday night, after the blogs have gone to bed, you can stop in to St. Pete Brasserie and spy Mark enjoying a glass of the flintiest white wine and me slugging back yet another dirty martini.
