As you may know, Orange Juice and Biscuits was up for one of Mashable.com's 2009 Open Web Awards as a Top 5 finalist for Best Blogger to Follow. BBC Radio 5 Live featured Mashable's Open Web Awards in an interview with Mashable creator, Pete Cashmore, in November highlighting the event as one of the web’s biggest annual awards. I want to let everyone know that the results came out today and the winner is... Derek Sheldon's blog The World As I Der See It!

I also want to take the time to congratulate Derek on his win! It was a long competition as there were over 440,000 nominations with over 70,000 nominees and over 780,000 final votes! That is just crazy! (I just can't sleep... why do I always have to sing that Britney song when I hear the word "crazy?") The fact that I made it to the top 5 in the Best Blogger to Follow category out of 440,000 nominations is amazing to me! Earlier today Derek sent me this message via Twitter:

"HEY buddy...I wanted to say you do and still do a WONDERFUL job! I am SO proud of you and your fans! Much love your way, Derek!"

Thanks Derek, great job to you as well! I want to thank EACH AND EVERY person that nominated and voted for OJ&B during the entire competition!! I could not have made it to the top 5 without any of you. I am extremely happy with Top 5. If this was American Idol I would be all kinds of going on tour and I would also get to sing the good songs! Check out what one OJ&B reader from Canada had to say on Twitter:

"You are such a wonderful person! Congrats on your Top 5 status, lets make you number 1 in 2010 !" -Michelle

Thank you so much for that sweet message Michelle!! I really do appreciate all of my readers that come to OJ&B from around the world. I plan on doing HUGE things in 2010 so I hope that you will come along for the ride!! - Jonathan

P.S. Don't you love the Top 5! High 5 pic? I found it when searching for images that said "Top 5" and I thought it was very OJ&B. It comes from the BBC Radio website. Be sure to check that out. I have a lot of European readers and I love them (and everyone from every country) all so much. THANKS AGAIN GUYS AND GALS!
