Last night was the 2017 San Diego Press Club Excellence in Journalism Awards event. I was stunned to learn that my 10-year-old food blog, San Diego Foodstuff, was awarded Best of Show in the Website entries category. The entire category! I feel very honored--and, yes, gobsmacked. I also was awarded four other honors: two first place, one second place, and one third place award. Here's what they were for:
- First Place Websites: Blog-Topic Based for San Diego Foodstuff
- First Place Online and Daily Newspapers -Food for my post on San Diego Foodstuff ("Mort's Favorites")
- Second place Websites-Blog by Corporation or Group for the American Personal and Private Chef Association's blog à al minute that I write
- Third place Magazines-Environment for my story for Edible San Diego ("Closing the Loop: A Zero-Waste Sustainability Business).
