West Seattle Blog nabbed honors as the nation's best collaborative community blog over the weekend. Here's how an excited WSB editor Tracy Record reported it in a Saturday night note to readers: "One month ago, we shared the news that we - and you - were in the final running for a national Online Journalism Award. Tonight, your editor here is at the awards banquet in Washington, D.C., the final event in the Online News Association's annual conference - and we won! We've just had the thrill of accepting that award on behalf of not just the WSB team but all of West Seattle. (Tough competition - the other three finalists were projects by CNN, CBC, and the LA Times.)..." Good company at the banquet, too: MSNBC.com, NPR, Pro Publica and CNN.com took top honors for best online journalism.
