Nominations - Best New Blog

Nominate your choice for Best New Blog. The blog must have been established after November 14, 2005 - when last years nominations opened.

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.
