We just found out that IAmATrailBlazersFan.com (what we affectionately call IAMA) is a finalist in the Community category at the South By Southwest Interactive Web Awards! While we don’t set out to win awards, it is truly an honor to be recognized by our peers for the work we do. We also would never have had the opportunity to create the site without the imagination and sheer willpower of Dan Harbison, the Internet Marketing Manager at the Trail Blazers, and the dedicated team of developers working over there. This nomination is shared by all of us.
This also means that Erin and I will be returning to Austin this March for our second SXSW conference for a lot of inspiration, a bit of adventure, and many beers at The Ginger Man. Hopefully we’ll see you there. We’ll be the ones walking the red carpet at the WebAwards ceremony. And best of luck to all the nominees in all of the categories… you guys are doing some of the best interactive work out there and we’re flattered to be in your company.
UPDATE: If you’re a fan of IAMA, we’d sincerely appreciate your vote for IAmATrailBlazersFan.com as the People’s Choice for the SXSW WebAwards. Vote early, vote often.
