Sondra K–Grande Conservative Blogress Diva 2008

When we launched the Grande Conservative Blogress Diva contest this year, we expected to have a number of blogresses nominated and seconded as we did. So, we assumed a run-off would be necessary.

What we did not anticipate was the number of glitches in this year’s competition. We were delayed in setting up the contest due to misunderstandings and miscommunications (between Bruce and me). When we first announced the nominees, Bruce set up a poll which for some reason didn’t work.

I tried to fix it, but failed. At the same time, Bruce was taking care of his Mom. I couldn’t figure out what was wrong, wanted to set up a new poll, but feared that some people had already cast their ballots in the original contest. In the end, I did set up the poll, more than two days after we had anticipated the voting to begin. When I posted that poll, I neglected to announce that there would be a run-off nor to indicate when voting would end. I didn’t even link the post announcing the contest.

Given that the final tally had reigning Grande Conservative Blogress Diva Sondra K so far ahead of her competitors, we decided to dispense with a runoff and anoint her Grande Conservative Blogress Diva for the coming year.

We believe Sondra is especially deserving of this honor because of the spirited way she campaigned for the title, enlisting her readers and fellow bloggers to sign her praises in our comments section and to pump for her on their own web-sites. Self-promotion and devoted followers: qualities of a true diva.

This is not to say that the other competitors are less than divas. In their outspoken ways, all of them have earned the respect of these gay conservatives and merit the diva label. But, only one woman can become Grande Conservative Blogress Diva. And once again, Sondra K of Knowledge is Power has earned the title.

Congratulations Sondra!



  1. Indeed. Sir, you are a gentleman!
