The entry below is classified as a LEGACY post, meaning that it was written (well) before the current version of Avalonstar was released. Although these posts have survived the numerous moves over years, there is no guarantee that they've survived the trip unscathed (especially the links).

SXSWi Web Award Finalist

Just a quick note to let you know that "Avalonstar" has been selected as a finalist in the "Blog" category! I'll be posting all the finalists on the SXSW site later this evening -- as well as sending you more information on what this exciting honor entails.


Talk soon, Shawn

Just being in the top five (in any competition) is something I could have never dreamed of, but something I definitely hoped for. But I guess this is the beginning, and another thing to look forward to at my first SXSWi. I'm up against some awesome blogs, and I know it'll be a great competition. Wish us all luck, it's going to be one hell of a rush.
