Nominations - Best Blog

Nominate your choice for 2006's Best Blog.

A couple of notes:

  • You can nominate yourself; don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • In some cases the list of finalists may contain sites not publically nominated.
  • This contest is about fun - find some new blogs to read by following the links.
To nominate a blog leave the name of the blog; the main URL for the blog; and the URL for a RSS/Atom feed (if possible) in the comment section. For example (Note that Wizbang is not eligible for nomination in any category):
Wizbang
http://wizbangblog.com/
http://wizbangblog.com/index.xml


Unless you login via Typekey, your comments may be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment. Typekey authenticated comments will be published immediately. Update (Nov. 25): Nominations are closed. Keep checking The 2006 Weblog Awards homepage for news on finalist, linking, and voting. The voting will commence the first week of December, so keep spreading the word. In the mean time you can also join us in The Weblog Awards forum to discuss the nominees, or do some campaigning.

I vote for Texasrainmaker.
http://www.texasrainmaker.com

I nominate http://www.redstate.com, I used to hit Michelle Malkin first every morning since the election I now find that redstate is my first choice for information and commentary. It is I believe the best site.

I'm nominating the blog "Did You Know?", at: http://universalfacts.blogspot.com/

I'd like to nominate:

Dumb Ox News

Every year at the Oscars, some relatively unknown movie sneaks its way into the Best Picture category. This year at the Weblog Awards, The Platypus Society will do the same in the Best Blog category!

http://www.platypus-society.net/blog
http://www.platypus-society.net/blog/feed

It has drama, it has humor, it even has singing. And it's 100% politics free.

The time has come to finally recognize that a blog can be the best without thousands of technorati links or a bloated hitcounter.

What say you? Who's with me?

chirp, chirp

Well, it was worth a shot.

Captain's Quarters Blog
www.captainsquartersblog.com

I would like to nominate Quantum Leaps (http://jackalope.wordpress.com)

My ego would like to nominate itself:

Hector Vex's Infotainment

The Moderate Voice.

http://www.themoderatevoice.com/

Another Rovian Conspiracy - Can there ever be too many conspiracies? Besides, it gives the Moonbats the heeby-jeebies.

http://rovianconspiracy.blospot.com/
http://rovianconspiracy.blogspot.com/atom.xml

Self-nominated because our readers have more sense than we do.

No doubt that Glenn rules...

Glenn Greenwald - Unclaimed Territory

I would like to nominate:

www.gigglechick.com

http://alwaysrightusuallycorrect.blogspot.com/
http://alwaysrightusuallycorrect.blogspot.com/atom.xml

OK, not a high traffic blog, not a high volume post blog. But, I think the "other stuff" help make up for that. Check out the archives (by clicking any of the small pictures on the left side or at the top of any post), or the sports archives...

...notice the newsfeeds for each sports team, state, nation, etc.?

Oh, and, was one of the few conservatives in MN that predicted the Minnesota bloodbath for the GOP...those predictions started coming in back in October...of 2005.

I nominate Carpetbagger Report

http://www.thecarpetbaggerreport.com/

Think progress


http://thinkprogress.org/

http://shakespearessister.blogspot.com/

Another vote for Shakes Sis. It has everything, a great group of bloggers, terrific community, and it hits every important issue. Whatever news is on my mind, I go to Shakes Sis, and there it is, being discussed by intelligent, passionate people.

Plus there are cats. Can't have a Best Blog without cats (you should probably put that in the rules somewhere). And silly tests and the Question of the Day, and YouTubes From The Hell of My Youth (I'm afraid to watch them, but there they are, if you want to watch them), and caption contests, and B(OK maybe Z)-movie reviews, and amusing anecdotes written in Scots dialect--what's not to like?

King Film (Scott King's Blog)
http://www.scottking.info/

I nominate My Two Cents Worth. Country Boy is a conservative political mastermind!!!

http://www.tonyspain.blogspot.com/

http://scienceblogs.com/scientificactivist/index.xml

Rocking in Hakata

http://rss.mac.com/deas.richardson/iWeb/Rocking%20in%20Hakata/Blog/rss.xml

Best new / individual / educational / cultural / Asian blog...about living on a remote Japanese island while teaching high school English in prep for grad school...and the anthrosociopoliticultural things that run through my mind. I use my powers for awesome, not just good.

This blog is no longer alive, but it is the father blog of the entry I already made. I studied abroad in Tokyo, Japan for one year, and this is my record of my adventures in the big city and around the rest of Japan. It is media RICH, with hundreds of photos and flash video clips to show what life for me was like.

This is the archive page, because it is no longer being updated. I made it so that prospective Waseda exchange students would have some idea about what to expect. (I was the test subject for this exchange program.)
