Weblog Awards 2008
Hey, here’s some of my recommendations for voting at Weblog Awards. I didn’t pick something for every category. If I don’t know the blog, I’m not pretendin’. Anyway, this post turned out to be a pain in my arse. The fact is, there are some categories, mine for example, that are crammed with great writers. In Best Individual Category (mine), two of my favorite writers are there: Rachel Lucas (best writer on the web, bar none), The Anchoress (best philosophical voice on the web, bar none), and James Lileks (who was not nominated but who writes like a pro–wait a minute…..he IS a pro). And then, in the best Big Blog Category, I couldn’t very well vote for my co-blogger’s competition, but Jeff Goldstein’s Protein Wisdom has been my source for erudite criticism since the beginning.
It was a little disturbing how many blogs I did know. Gah! I’ve spent a lot of time reading. No wonder I need freaking glasses. The LED light, I be blinded.
Oh, here’s the deal: you can vote once every 24 hours. The link is HERE. I know that you’re all lazy fussy-pants, but I’m not putting a link in for every category. Go to the main one and vote in the categories you like. Mostly, I think you should be reading these blogs.
