Awards

Posted By on Sat, Jun 16, 2007 at 4:28 PM

Max is too self-effacing to post something — or maybe he hasn't heard yet — but yesterday, at the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies conference, he won second place in the blogging category, specifically for posts on the Huckabee gift registry scandal and a post on election night 2006 cautioning against complacency. Associate editor David Koon also won second prize in the arts feature category for his series on local artisans designated Arkansas Living Treasures (parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).

I'm here at the conference in Portland with several of our sales and business staff, and I just sat in on a roundtable discussion with other small paper editors, and I guess I was a little surprised to discover that very, very few other alt-weeklies of similar size blog with anything even approaching the prolificacy of Max.

Still, it's onward and upward: look for us to only increase our web output, especially in new blogs and features, in the coming weeks and months.

PS -- Thanks, Alan, for this post. But if we won an award for blog entries, particularly on the Huckabee wedding registry, a tip of the hat is required to Warwick Sabin, who broke that story before he moved on to higher ed.

-- max

PPS -- "Prolificacy"? It must be cocktail hour in Portland.
