Andrew S and Irresistible (Dis)Grace in the 2011 Brodies!

February 3, 2012

It’s that time again! Time for what, you might ask? The 2011 Brodie Awards, presented by Main Street Plaza!

2011 Brodie Awards

I had actually intended to mention it earlier, when the nomination process was going on, so you could think about nominating some of your favorite articles here or elsewhere. Unfortunately, I never got around to it, and here we are with voting.

So, what’s on the menu?

Normally, I like to recommend articles from my friends — not saying you should vote for anyone I say you should, but, uh, maybe you should — but it appears to me now that I know a lot of people in the Mormon blogging world, so I can’t pick in some categories — I simply have too many friends who are competing against each other.

However, I can advise all of you to check out my nominated articles either here, at MSP, or at Wheat & Tares, without any pangs of guilt for my conscience.

First up is the category Best faithful-perspective Mormon Blog.

Wheat & Tares

As you all should know, I blog at Wheat & Tares, and what we’re trying to do is create an environment for discussing Mormonism, politics, culture, science — a whole bunch of topics — and we try to do it in a way that is open to both believers and non-believers. If you haven’t checked out W&T yet, try to do so in the next year…but whether you have or haven’t, please keep us in mind in voting!

The next category I’d like to discuss is Best Book-Length Memoirs. to clarify, I haven’t written a book-length memoir myself, but whereas I usually don’t write book reviews, I wrote 2 of them for Therese Doucet’s A Lost Argument. So please check out either review, maybe check out the book itself, and think about voting!

Best “Mormon Life Journey” Post is the third category I would like to cover. It’s not often that I get so excited about a topic that I have to split my thoughts into multiple posts, yet for the Why are ex-Mormons so angry? series, I did just that. While I would love if eventually this post became a sort of go-to series for people trying to explain things to their believing Mormon or never Mormon friends and family who just can’t seem to understand the stereotypes about ex-Mormons, at the very least, it would be pretty cool if it won an award.

Speaking of multi-part series, Best Discussion of Mormon (or former-Mormon) Community has another one of my series.

In this category, my Fractures and Factions of Mormon Blogging series was nominated. I had planned (and started writing) enough for there to be at least two more parts to the series, but I simply wasn’t able to get around to the final parts. But maybe if the series were to win a Brodie, I’d be motivated to invest the time to finishing the series?

So there you have it. Once again, you don’t have to vote how I want you to, buuuuut I’d love you forever if you did. :3
