2008 Blogisattva Award Nominees Announced

I am honored, and humbled to announce that Precious Metal has been nominated for a Blogisattva Award. What is a Blogisattva you say? The site defines them as…

Blogisattva: a portmanteau combining the English word for ‘blog’ [which is ‘blog’] with the Sanscrit word for ‘being’ [which is ‘sattva’]. The letter ‘i’ is used as caulk to hold the word-tiles together. Thus, Blogisattva means BLOG BEING.

Precious Metal was nominated in the category of “Best Achievement in Wide Range of Topic Interests Blogging”. You can see the whole list of categories and nominees at: 2008 Blogisattva Awards Nominees Announed
