Frequent Miler (that’s me) was elected “Best Points and Miles Blog” in Frequent Business Traveler’s 3rd annual GlobeRunner awards!
I know, you’ve never heard of these awards before (unless you happened to read “Frequent Miler’s leaked campaign strategy” back in March). I had never heard of it either until I got an email telling me I had been nominated. Honestly, I wasn’t sure whether it was real or some kind of elaborate email scam involving a Nigerian Prince. A Google search, though, showed press releases from Flyertalk and Singapore airlines announcing their previous wins so I figured it might be legit. Then, I kicked into campaign mode and did what anyone would do who wants to win an election: I went negative.
Of course, I wasn’t the only GlobeRunner Award winner. Lucky, from One Mile at a Time, won Best General Travel Blog. Pictures of the two Best Bloggers accepting our awards can be found here. And, a full list of winners can be found here. It’s awesome and humbling to be found on the same page as other obviously deserving winners such as LOT Polish Airlines which won Best Airline in Europe/Middle East/Africa, and United Airlines which tied with Delta for Best Airline in the Americas. Yes, really.
Paparazzi were ready to capture the event, in full. Here are the Best Blog winners on our chauffeured ride from the airport:
And, here’s a photo of the trophy given to each winner:
As you can see below, the trophy is not exactly huge:
And, to put it into perspective, you can see that I’m not that big of a guy:
Still, despite the diminutive size of the award, I’m honored to accept it. Thank you, everyone who voted for me!
