Award winning

MNA LogoAt the Montana Newspaper Association banquet this weekend in Missoula, the judges saw fit to name this site Best Blog of 2012. I’m honored to have won the award and thrilled to have beaten out Billings Gazette blogs, which finished second and third in the category.

I like to jab the Gazette when I can because I envy the Lee-style sites — their sites run on the same software that the BDC site does, and it amazes me what they’ve been able to do about the speed and responsiveness of their templates.

Considering how many other categories the BDC finished second to the Gazette in, I have to lord it over them where I can too.
