Allow me to amend the Scout Law to add this: A Scout is Grateful.
I’m grateful to the Western Publishing Association for naming Bryan on Scouting the Best Web Publication Blog/Trade & Consumer at its 61st Annual Maggie Awards last week.
I’m grateful to Managing Editor John R. Clark and rest of the Scouting magazine team for their continual efforts to enhance and promote my blog.
And I’m grateful to you, my readers. You’re the reason this blog exists at all; I couldn’t do it without your support, participation, and feedback.
Here’s a little more about the award:
On Friday, I attended the Western Publishing Association (WPA) awards banquet in Los Angeles. The WPA honors the “West’s Best” and includes publications based in states west of the Mississippi River. This year, the WPA received 1,200 entries and presented 78 awards in editorial and design categories.
Scouting magazine was a finalist for six Maggie Awards, including two nominations in photography categories and one each in writing, Web design, blog, and overall-excellence categories.
Bryan on Scouting won the category that included these five nominated blogs:
- Bryan on Scouting
- Elearning! Blog
- Mother Jones: Tom Philpott: Food for Thought
- Qmed: MPMN Medtech Pulse Blog
- Reason: Hit & Run
