Your mom likely told you it’s not polite to brag about yourself. And your mom—and mine—are right about that. Well, mostly.
Today I want to let you, our faithful blog readers, know about something pretty cool that happened late last week. Technically, I suppose I’m doing that thing Mom told me not to do. But hopefully you’ll understand … and forgive me.
Each year, the Evangelical Press Association looks at entries from various Christian publications and ministries (both online and in print) and hands out awards for the ones that score the highest. This year, I’m super pumped to give a shout out to our hardworking and incredibly creative Plugged In team: Emily Clark, Bob Hoose, Kristin Smith and Paul Asay, as well as our regular podcast and radio contributor Jonathan McKee. That’s because Plugged In was given four awards at the EPA convention last week.
First up: the Plugged In blog. Yup. The very one you’re reading right now. Our website’s blog nabbed the No. 1 slot in the EPA’s Higher Goals category for blogs. Thanks so much for being one of our readers, and thanks, too for the many comments you all leave that help us to think more deeply about the subjects, trends and products that we cover here.
Plugged In also got the nod in three other categories as well. The Plugged In Show, our weekly podcast, locked down the No. 2 spot in the podcast competition. Our very own Bob Hoose placed fourth in the Critical Review category for his review of the movie The Prom. And our website as a whole won an Award of Merit in the General (Digital) category.
Thanks again for your loyal readership. And as we move into the future, we’ll continue to give you the very best coverage of entertainment, technology, faith and youth culture that we possibly can.
(Oh, and sorry for bragging, Mom.)
