Best Independent Blog? Yes, please

The New Jersey chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists awarded Rahway Rising the winner of the Independent (non-media affiliated) Blog category in the 2011 Excellence in Journalism Awards.

It’s unclear how many entries there were in the category but judges did not award second- or third-place winners.

My submission included a blog post from December, “More than 100 properties win tax appeals,” featuring this Google Map of all the tax appeals, which is now closing in on 4,000 page views.

The judges’ comments: “Rahway Rising’s use of web tools such as Google maps, and links to outside sources, show a good understanding of the Internet format, while the topic matter and research provide solid information for readers interested in learning more about redevelopment in Rahway.”
