Best Australia or New Zealand Blog

Nominate your choice for the best Australian or New Zealand blog.

NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR ALL CATEGORIES EXCEPT THE FOLLOWING:

Best Large Blog
Best Mid Major Blog
Best Mid Minor Blog
Best Small Major Blog

To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:

Wizbang
http://wizbangblog.com/
http://feeds.wizbangblog.com/Wizbang

Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services (Typekey, WordPress, OpenID, Yahoo, AIM, etc.) your comment will not be published immediately. Unauthenticated comments are placed in a moderation queue. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours for your comment to be approved. Comments from authenticated users will be published immediately.

Every so often our spam fighting service flags an authenticated comment as spam. If put more than 10 URL's in a comment it will set off the junk filter. If your comment doesn't immediately appear that's probably what happened. We review and "unjunk" these comments as we are approving unauthenticated comments. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Rules And FAQ's

  • You can nominate yourself, don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • Rather than add a "me too" nomination for a site you're encouraged to use the "+" icon to indicate your preference for nominees. The "+" ratings are one extra piece of information the finalist selection panel can use to help generate the finalist slates in each category.
  • Given the two previous items, we reserve the right to remove excessive comments (i.e. nominations) for the same site.
  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Wednesday, November 19, 2008.
  • The nomination period has been extended to Friday, November 21, 2008.
  • Voting for selected finalists is scheduled to begin December 8, 2008. Finalists will be announced several days before voting begins.
  • Read The Nomination FAQ
  • Get Weblog Award logos to post on your site. Link to the nomination index or your favored category
  • Get technical help or ask questions at The Weblog Awards Forum
  • If you are linking to the contest consider using the nomination category archive, as it contains links to all of the nomination posts.

Hi

I would like to nominate Sam de Brito 'all men are liars'
thank you

I'm nominating AMAL (http://blogs.smh.com.au/lifestyle/allmenareliars/)
I read the blog every day and am stimulated, amused, entertained, and just occasionally annoyed. It's compulsory.

I nominate All Men Are Liars by Sam de Brito. The blog is published by The Age at http://blogs.theage.com.au/lifestyle/allmenareliars/ , by The Sydney Morning Herald at http://blogs.smh.com.au/lifestyle/allmenareliars/ , as well as The Brisbane Times at http://blogs.brisbanetimes.com.au/allmenareliars/ . The Sydney Morning Herald portal has the greatest number of consistent participants.

Sam de Brito is Australia's most orginal and insightful writer/journalist. All Men Are Liars is said to be about "the business of being a bloke", but while Sam writes a lot about issues facing men, his blog traverses all manner of subject matters, the only real criterion being that the topic be thought provoking. Sam writes with great insight, compassion and wit, but the quality that brings me (and, I believe, many others) back consistently is Sam's fearless honesty. You can find the topics he writes on being written about and discussed in many places, but you won't find the same honesty and lack of politically correct veneer anywhere else. I think a glance at the diversity of his fans is the greatest testament to that.

(Sorry, I should've stopped at the first sentence, but I couldn't help myself.)

All Men Are Liars is the best blog on the net

http://blogs.theage.com.au/lifestyle/allmenareliars/

All Men Are Liars is the best blog

Hoo boy - I hope you have IP logging switched on, because whoever just spammed you with a couple of dozen nominations for Sam DeBrito's All Men Are Liars didn't put much effort into making his many reposts look different. Or should we believe that so many people all failed to read the instructions in an identical way?

I would recommend disqualifying MSM blogs such as All Men are Liars. The potential for marketing ploys is too great, and I smell one right now.

I nominate Still Life with Cat

Other blogs come and go, and I don't even remember what they are called, but the only one I go back to time and time again is Sam DeBrito's "All Men Are Liars". Best mix of serious stuff, drug snorting stories and things that make you wish you were nicer to your parents.
