The Blooker Awards

Jeff Cufaude kindly sent me a link to an interesting awards program—the “Blookers,” literary awards for books that started out as blogs or websites. Appropriately enough, there is a blog covering the award process, nominees, and winners.

While it didn’t make the short list for the 2007 award, We Have Always Done It That Way (which was originally published in blog format) is included in the longer list of nonfiction entrants on the right-hand side of the page.

I’m glad I had the chance to read through the list of entrants—I was personally very taken with a “blook” on volunteering in post-Hurricane Katrina Mississippi, as well as Far From the Madding Gerund, a book based on a language blog (yes, I admit it, I’m a grammar nerd).

I wonder if there will be more association entrants in the Blookers next year!
