Want to Join the IBWAA?

From IBWAA.com:

With voting for season awards in progress and the launching of a new website today, the Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) is encouraging new members to join.

While you don’t get anything special, you will be eligible to vote in the current election. The sooner the better, because you’ll have 10 ballots to fill out, including MVP, Cy, rookie, manager and relief pitcher awards for NL and AL. Join by the final day of the regular season, October 3, 2012, email your selections by 9:00 p.m. PST, and consider yourself a full-fledged member of the IBWAA.

All online baseball writers are welcome, from publications large and small, including those covering minor league and amateur ball, and those working full-time, part-time and as unpaid contributors.

Membership dues are $10 per year, or $20 lifetime. Group discounts and scholarships are available. Please do not hesitate to ask. Visit our JOIN page to sign up.

Is this group in anyway associated with the BBWAA?

How would that work with our particular situation?

(And I don't mean the fondness for cartoon bear porn.)

The IBWAA was started by Howard Cole of BaseballSavvy.com. No relation to the BBWAA. He's encouraging individual internet writers to join, so you would be good, Gnomes. You can learn more in one of our earlier posts about them (Tim Brown is a member!).

And Fred Claire!

Can the readers of this fine blog join too? We are unpaid contributors who write online about baseball.
