Once again, our beloved readers have honored Baltimore Fishbowl by nominating us for an award in The Baltimore Sun’s Mobbies.

The Mobbies Bash – Applauding Area Bloggers


Baltimore is brimming with creative types, and nowhere is this more apparent than the Baltimore Blogosphere.  We have our dedicated sports bloggers for all things Raven and Orioles, our food bloggers, our fashion bloggers, our personal bloggers, our tech bloggers, and so much more.  Our area bloggers offer a little something for everyone and anyone.

Each year, the Baltimore Sun hosts The Mobbies, or Maryland’s Outstanding Blogs.  Marylanders nominate their favorite blogs. Twitter accounts, instagram handles and many more, in an array of categories. Baltimore Sun readers are then encouraged to vote for their top picks.  Here at the Baltimore Fishbowl, we are proud to have been nominated in a few categories and cannot wait to see the results.  Voting is now complete, with the winners to be announced at the Mobbies Bash.

This Wednesday at 6:30pm at the Creative Alliance, the Baltimore Sun is hosting their annual celebration of our city’s bustling social media scene.  Come to this election-themed happy hour sponsored by Flying Dog Brewery and Clementine at Creative Alliance and cross your fingers for your favorite social media savant.  Get creative; go old school and show up as a “hanging chad,” or more current and be a perpetually confused state of Florida.  Much like choosing the president or your favorite blogs, you decide in 2012!

Because it’s election-themed, because we have amazing bloggers in this city, and because we won’t be missing this opportunity to meet them!

It’s an Honor Just to Be Nominated


Have you heard of the Mobbies? Neither had we until a friend emailed to congratulate us on being nominated in the Best City Blog and Best New Blog categories. Mobbies = the “best blog” awards given by The Baltimore Sun. Here’s the weird thing though: You can vote for yourself, and often! The rules allow one vote per person every 24 hours, but voters have to be registered at The Sun.

We’re so happy to be nominated we won’t even feel embarrassed to vote for ourselves 100 times — or ask our dear readers to do so — even if it is just a ploy to drive traffic to The Sun’s website.

Vote for us? Save us some clicks. Here’s the link:


Here are the rules:

  1. To be eligible, a voter must be a registered user of baltimoresun.com.
  2. Vote for your favorites daily. Registered users get one vote per category per 24-hour period. You can also vote once each day for the best overall blog.
  3. Rankings are updated daily. The nominee who receives the highest number of votes in each category at the end of the voting period wins. 
  4. Voting on the Mobbies finalists will started Oct. 31st at 8 a.m. and will end Nov. 10th at 5 p.m. Winners, prizes and partying commence at Illusions Magic Bar on Nov. 15th at 5:30 p.m. Details here

Please excuse our shameless self-promotion and thanks.
