A Little Love Goes a Long Way... Webby Awards Best Community Nominee 3rd Year in a Row'

Third time's the charm? Wow! It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of such an awesome community.  This is the 3rd year in a row we've been nominated for Best Community in the Webby Awards (The Oscars of the Internet).  First time it was huge validation for our idea... Second time it was proof that the first wasn't just a fluke... and this time it totally confirms that you all are the best bunch of people on the internet.

But, We Need Your Help

There is a People's Voice Award that you can participate in and help us win. Here's the catch, we're competing against some wonderful communities... One in particular has won this award the last 2 years we competed against them, oh and they have 20+ million members! We have 0.2 million members... we're going to need to really work hard to make this happen. I've seen how passionate, creative and supportive you all are... We can do it.

Obviously, we're going to need to reach out from just this community to the other communities we're in. Our friends & family, social networks, blogs, profiles, groups, clubs, etc. There is a reason you love this site as much as you do and I want you to share that love with others... lots of them!

Again, You're Awesome

We are a thriving creative community where millions of people each month come to get creative inspiration or share some of their ideas with others... and we have so little hating, trolling and all around putting down of others. That is a very rare thing on the web.  Occasionally I step in and edit a conversation that starts heading off in a direction... but overall, you all just police yourselves and stay in a positive and supportive space.  Thank you all so much.

And we're just getting started.  COLOURlovers started as a fun idea I had one weekend and with all of you it has grown into this wonderful resource over the past 3 years... but there is a much bigger plan for sharing the color love and we're just getting started with putting that plan into action.  Thank you for helping us get to where we are today and for sharing the dream of where we can go.

Thank you. Much love & appreciation.
