Nominations - Best Canadian Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Canadian 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.

As you can tell from my self-nomination, I'm not shy: does that automatically disqualify me from the Canuckistani blog category?

Quick correction. Someone was kind enough to nominate my blog Angry in the Great White North. That person supplied my old URL angrygwn.mu.nu. Though that URL continues to work, I would like to migrate as many people as possible to www.stevejanke.com, and this award nomination is an ideal way to do that. Thanks.

OK, I flubbed the second URL is my previous comment. The URL www.stevejanke.com does in fact work.

Diary of The Shootartist
http://theshootartist.blogspot.com

Cheers & Thanks!

I've been reading this guy for awhile. The blog has everything from politics, celebrity news and world events - to personal stories from his life as a mountie and father.

I don't know the feed URL.

This post got me hooked...

I nominate this blog in this category:

Mary Blackchurch-Those the Gods destroy they first make proud

RSS 2.0:

WTPS3

Kathy Shaidle's relapsed catholic:
http://relapsedcatholic.com/

It's more of a Catholic blog than a Canadian blog, but she's got enough Canada-specific content to pass government muster.

Another nominee should be The Black Rod, blackrod.blogspot.com, which combines invstigative work, analysis and humour to skewer MSM and political sacred cows.

Small Dead Animals

WTPS3

Small Dead Animals

Kate's topic selection is always relevant.

I nominate Chuckercanuck;

http://chuckercanuck.blogspot.com

I nominate Jason at Chunk o Funk - www.bigchunkofunk.blogspot.com. He is the best writer in the Canadian blogosphere, and for some reason remains totally underrated.
