Nominations - Best UK Blog

Nominate your choice for Best UK Blog. The UK Blog category includes Great Britain, Ireland, Scotland, etc.

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):

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'd like to nominate Falando pelos Cotovelos - Talking nineteen to the dozen.

It's about a trying-to-be-normal mum of two and an information security girl, who lives with her crazy-geek husband, who loves his gadgets and loves to talk about quantum mechanics, physiology, computer, quarks, life, universe and everything.

And they have two boys:

André, 5 years old one, hyperactive and try to crack their computer passwords quite often. Filipe, 2 months old, can’t take his eyes off mummy's breast.

I would like to nominate my blog, a UK blog, that features new UK music + mp3s.
