Shorty Awards have begun - Time for pony flooding. by


Every year, January becomes saturated with award shows to recap the previous year. Most of them are for things that the majority of us will never have a chance at. Things like Golden Globes...Grammys....Oscars....and so on. Well back in 2008 things changed, with the advent of "The Shorty Awards".

The shorty awards are awards for the internet. In particular, awards for twitter accounts and social media. Finally. Something everyone is eligible for.
And as it turns out, Horse-News is part of everyone.
Oh...and MLP stuff too
Here's where you come in.

The Shorty Awards have dozens of categories, and anyone with a twitter account is both eligible to win, as well as to nominate.

Horse News is currently nominated for "Fansite", and is currently in second place for "weird".
Apparently we are ineligible for "Journalist" (because pony news isn't journalism or something...fascists...)

We actually have a shot at getting the Weird award, which you all deem appropriate for some reason, as the top-3 nominees will become finalists for certain. Want to see us go to New York to accept an award for being Weird? Then you should cast a vote here.
