The Fabulous Fifty

Doug Ross Top 50 (medium)Yesterday we were honored to be named as one of the winners of Doug Ross’ 2010 Fabulous 50 Blog Awards. This puts us in some illustrious company, because, as Mr. Ross says, they are “the most prestigious new media awards anywhere. Or at least in the 993 area code.”

Thank you, Mr. Ross!

There’s only one hitch (if it indeed can be called a hitch): our award was for “Best European Blog”.

It makes me a bit nervous every time Gates of Vienna is classified as a “European blog”. It’s not just that our good fortune might irritate the real European blogs. It’s not only the thought that Politically Incorrect, Snaphanen, or Europe News might take out a contract on us.

No, what worries me is that I might have to start acting the part. Must I wear a little beret? Bathe less often? Eat Emmenthaler? Stop pronouncing my r’s? Put diacritical marks over my vowels?

Fie on that!

You’d be surprised at some of the company we’re keeping in the Fabulous 50. Among the other winners are Matt Drudge, George Will, Charles Krauthammer, and — wait for it — George Soros.

Do we really want to be in the same club as Soros?

Oh, well — Fausta is in there, too, so it can’t be all bad…
