Amongst several other great horror blogs, Freddy In Space was nominated for the award and that means a hell of a lot being that the nominees were all selected by the readers out there. Now i'm not saying my little blog is the best horror blog of the year (hell I voted for Basement of Ghoulish Decadence myself), but if you dig what i'm doing and want to show your support, I would really it appreciate it if you'd head over to Bloody Disgusting, register for the site if you haven't yet, and go ahead and throw a vote in the hat for me. You have until February 12th to do so. While you're there, be sure to check out all of the blogs that were nominated - I guarantee you'll find some great new reading material that will entertain you for a long time to come.
Thank you Bloody Disgusting for doing this and a huge thanks to all who nominated me and to all who vote for me. Just being mentioned on Bloody Disgusting is awesome enough, but it sure wouldn't hurt to win!
While we're on the subject of awards, the last several weeks have been very award heavy in the horror blogging community. All kinds of awards have been passed out amongst us and I wanted to take a second to thank all of the blogs who gave me the various different awards. If I missed anyone I apologize, but these are the only ones i'm aware of.

As a part of these chainmail esque awards, you're supposed to pass the ones you get onto horror blogs that you personally dig. Since I kinda missed the boat on this by a couple weeks and since pretty much all of the blogs I read were already given several of these awards, I wanted to go ahead and show my support for two blogs that as far as I know weren't given any awards - or maybe they just didn't post about them. Anyway, here are two favorite blogs that by all means should've been nominated for the Bloody Disgusting award and totally deserve all of the above awards.
Haunt Style - This is a daily visit for me and I usually end up killing some serious time browsing through the vast archives while i'm there. This guy by the name of "Bones" has a knack for finding the coolest horror related shit out there and he makes a post about it nearly every single day. Be it unique products from the other side of the world or strange photographs, if it's horror and it's cool, Bones has found it and continues to put it on display for all to see.
Scab's Horror Blog - Though he mostly focuses on the Friday The 13th franchise, Scab also covers other old school slashers from time to time. This blog is a vast wealth of information for the Friday fan and i've learned a ton of stuff from it. I've also gotten many recommendations of movies to check out from both the site and Scab's YouTube channel - like the 80's slasher Slaughterhouse, which Scab just created a Facebook fan page for. Awesome guy and an awesome blog. Similar to what I said about Haunt Style, if it's Friday The 13th and it's cool, Scab has posted about it.
