ANNOUNCEMENT: Nominate The Impulsive Buy For A Saveur Magazine 2012 Best Food Blog Award


Would you folks like to help The Impulsive Buy?

If you have a couple of minutes, would you be so kind as to nominate The Impulsive Buy for a Saveur Magazine Best Food Blog Award. I’m asking you folks to nominate this semi popular product review blog because it would be quite funny if Saveur Magazine, which focuses on gourmet food, allowed a junk food/fast food review blog to end up as one of their food blog award finalists.

Because I believe the folks at Saveur probably don’t consider the types of products we review at TIB to be food, I think it’s highly unlikely we’ll end up being a finalist. But, I’d sure like to try with a flood of nominations.

So if you’d like to help The Impulsive Buy make the Saveur Food Blog Awards less savory, visit the Saveur Food Blog Awards Nomination page and fill out the online nomination form.

The online nomination form has 4-7 steps. The number of steps depends on how quickly you want to complete the form and whether or not you want newsletters you most likely won’t read in your email inbox.

Step 1 (required): Fill in the URL of this blog ( Yeah, I know. Adding the “http://” is antiquated, like the print magazine industry, but that’s how Saveur asks for it.

Step 2 (required): Choose categories. You can choose up to three categories. The ones I feel best fit The Impulsive Buy are: Best Food Humor Blog, Best Group Blog, and Best Special Diets Blog. Some of you might be asking why Best Special Diets Blog. Well, because I think eating mostly fast food and junk food is a diet that’s special.

Step 3 (optional): This part of the form is where you let the folks at Saveur know why you’re nominating The Impulsive Buy. If you don’t have much time, skip this part, since it’s optional. But if you’ve got time to kill, I’d suggest putting a haiku in there. Here’s one you can copy and paste:

The Impulsive Buy
Blog full of fast and junk food
I fear for their health

Step 4 (required): Input your name. This is pretty simple, unless your name is longer than 100 characters. The input field only allows 100 characters. Yes, I checked.

Step 5 (required): Input your email address. Again, this is pretty simple, unless your email address is more than 100 characters long.

Step 6 (optional): Uncheck boxes next to newsletter and special offers. By default they’re checked, so uncheck them, unless you want to fill your email inbox with newsletters and special offers you won’t read.

Step 7 (optional): Click SUBMIT.

If you’re willing to help, visit the Saveur Food Blog Awards Nomination page and fill it out. Nominations close on March 29, 2012.

If you did nominate us, I’d like to thank you for taking the time to do so.

  1. If you win this, Marvo, I will eat nothing but cereal for a week. And yes, I expect you to hold me to that.

    Consider yourself nominated.

  2. Done. It’s the least I can do for a blog that provides me with a smile due to its humor about junk food. Keep up the good work and good luck!

  3. Done! Including Step 7. I hope you win. I visit this blog almost daily and even read the reviews of things I would probably never buy because there are no Jack in the Box or Trader Joe’s stores in my area. That I know of. >.> But anyway, it’s an awesome blog and deserves awards and stuff.

    So good luck!
