This comes as something of a pleasant surprise/shock, but Slugger has been shortlisted by the prestigious PoliticsOnline group, for inclusion in its 2006 “Top 10 Who Are Changing the World of Internet and Politics”. We’ve done moderately well in voting competitions in the past (if we get the vote out), and I guess the best thing in our favour is that half of the shortlist will make it to the final ten. And there’s nineteen other sites worth checking out! But, if you like what we do just get over there and vote for Slugger!! Oh, and spread the word!!
Adds: I’ve just been looking and we’ve been put in with some seriously heavyweight company!!! Speechless….
