Thank you to all our readers and everyone, and everyone’s moms and cats and mailmen and Faceplace friends who voted for us! We’ve been feeling like Susan Lucci for a while now, and to be honest, it is actually quite cool to win.

Congratulations also to everyone who was nominated in our category, EcoRI, IndieArts RI, Providence Daily Dose, and RadioProv.

    You have certainly earned this coveted award. Your attention to writing/sharing news and information about what is cool about our place and other places doing cool stuff is unprecedented! You are a model for other urban-based blogs! You did GOOD, my friend!!!!!!

    Here’s what The Phoenix had to say about us:

    Best Blog

    Greater City: Providence

    The process of living in urban environments is a commitment that can always use a little help, and in the last couple of year the cultural and political posts on this LaProv-centric realm have proven to reveal part of the city’s soul. From updates on the Route 195 relocation to shared photos of the ever-changing neighborhoods, it’s an essential stop for those who dwell in our capitol. Hey, they even have the full text of Linc’s budget address. Call it a great digital cornerstone, and don’t forget to “like” the Zoo’s giraffe cam before you leave.

    Congratulations! Without your efforts, we’d not have a clue about what’s happened, is happening or about to happen to our struggling, but nonethless greater city’s streetscape.

    Thanks, Jef… and keep the exposés, commentary, damning photos and and kudos — where warranted — coming.
