New Member of The Family
April 13th, 2008 | Category: Memoir/Meme/Misc.
Please meet the new member of our family: Altın Örümcek (Golden Spider).
This may not be major news to readers outside of Turkey, but Cafe Fernando was chosen Turkey’s Best Blog and got The Golden Spider Award last week.
The Golden Spider Web Awards is an annual competition, where successful websites are honored in 53 different categories. It is sort of like the Web Oscars in Turkey (minus the good food and crazy after parties). Established six years ago, the awards are presented by Doruknet, a major ISP in Turkey. This year, the competition was sponsored by companies like Google and Getty Images (among many) as well as major IT newspapers and magazines. Over 300 blogs were first narrowed down to 5 finalists by the jury, and Cafe Fernando got the award after the final public voting round.
Just wanted to share a proud and happy moment with all of you!
