And the Lezzy Goes To …

The 2009 Lezzy Awards are over, and you all voted Sugarbutch as the Best Sex/Short Story/Erotica site for the second year in a row!

Thank you so much to all who voted and all who mentioned me in the promotions … I’m honored and humbled and promise to keep up the sex and erotica writing. I was a finalist along with my fabulous femme friend Essin’ Em and the lovely lady behind Scintillectual, who I don’t actually know, but I’m certainly going to be reading now. Both blogs are excellent. Jeez, I am so glad to see the abundance of butch and femme and genderqueer and queer sex blogs out there! Nearly four years ago, when I started Sugarbutch, there were very few queer sex blogs.

The competition was fierce this year, and the final winners are all heavy hitters. If you don’t read ’em regularly, you’re missing out.

Sincere thanks to all who voted, thanks specifically to Kelly who runs The Lesbian Lifestyle.

    Thanks for the shout-out, Sinclair! Of course I was rooting for you to win Lifetime Achievement (with totally selfish motives, of course) but you are, of course, highly deserving. I have been reading Sugarbutch from the time, not all that long ago, that I started the, now defunct, FemmeBLT with Extra Mayo. My hope is that my partner (www.androgynonamous.wordpress.com) and I will be at the Sex Blogger's Calendar 2010 party this year and I will get to meet many of my fellow bloggers in person. You, I hope, being one of them. So, congratulations, and looking forward to hopefully being in good company again next year. :)
