We were excited back in April when we told you about our Webby nomination. Then late last night we got the official word that we won! That’s right, the 12th Annual Webby Awards named Blurb the Best Services website in 2008. A huge shout out to our category competitors: 30 Boxes, Concur, LifeLock, and Moo.

Moo won the People’s Voice Award for the category, which makes us happy because we like our friends at Moo, and sharing the love is a good thing. Huge congrats to Richard and the team – we suspect they may celebrate with a cake party of some sort.

To be recognized by The Webby Awards is a big deal – The Awards have been called the Internet’s most respected symbol of success. So we’ll take a minute to soak this up, then get back to doing what we do best – helping you all connect and share your stories via books.

Thanks to all of you for your creativity, your enthusiasm, and your support.

  6. A symbolic Webby

    The Webby which will be awarded to Blurb in New York this very night is especially significant. The honor goes to those who typify the best of what the web has to offer. By providing creative souls with a usable, high-profile outlet through which to speak their hearts and minds, Blurb does that in a special way.

    As a self-publishing author for whom the web is a vital resource, I see this award as emblematic. Given the current questions about net neutrality and the future of the online free press, it says a great deal about the zeitgeist that a vehicle of free expression should be held up at this time as the representative web service.

    For the interested, here’s a link to a talk given last week by Bill Moyers to the Free Press Society which delves the topic:

    And a quote from Moyers:

    “Where ever the internet flows… we must assure that it remains an open and non-discriminatory medium of expression… a digital democracy.”

  7. Correction:
    Moyers was speaking to the National Conference for Media Reform, not the Free Press Society.

    My bad.
