2nd Annual Zilla Awards

Welcome to the Second Annual Zilla Awards for Awesomeness in the Dextrosphere!

If you are a blog reader, I hope you will find the above list useful to help you find some awesome blogs that you may not be familiar with yet or to reacquaint yourself with some blogs that you haven’t been to in a while; but remember, besides reading, commenting to, and sharing our posts, the best way to encourage good bloggers to keep bringing the awesomeness or to become an even better bloggers is to heed the famous advice of Stacy McCain with the five most important words in the English Language:

Special thanks to Rides A Pale Horse for designing this year’s Zilla Awards Badges!

*** Note: Because the internet hates me, this blog fought against me for hours while I tried to get grabbable widget codes to post, and every time I try to edit anything in this post the codes become invisible again, so I will not be able to update this post unless some computer genius tells me how to fix this, so I will simply thank bloggers in the comments section if they link here (their pings WILL, however, show up if they are using a platform WordPress recognizes). Sorry, and, thanks for your understanding! ***
