NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED FOR ALL CATEGORIES EXCEPT THE FOLLOWING:

Best Large Blog
Best Mid Major 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 your comment will not be published immediately.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.

This is the work of Erik Hare, a writer in Minnesota. He always has something to say that the mainstream media ignores.

TLB doesn't seem to be working.

I nominate http://www.watchmenowatchme.com for Best Hidden Gem! Christine is awesome!

DemoCast produces for you pertinent, personally-filmed events and analysis exposing Arab-oil/ Islamists' agenda of increasing political and cultural domination over, and throughout, the West and Israel (justified by radical Islamic theology).


Since I concentrate on publishing rather than marketing the site, you may unknowingly have benefited from my producing over 400 articles, 100 videos on YouTube, and another 60 on GoogleVideo. And I did it all this for 3-years before PJTV even got started. That's why I hope you'll vote to acknowledge DemoCast as a "Hidden Gem"!


DemoCast is reality, not conspiracy, news. I expose the intolerance towards women, ethnic, religious, and sexual minorities (which the mainstream media fears that they'd jeopardize their own jobs to acknowledge).

But these facts will destroy the West if the public isn't informed about them, so I struggle in order to present them to you.


Many stories I present will several days afterwards receive coverage by the Jerusalem Post or Fox News Channel. But I do it voluntarily, without budget. Your endorsement might help attract some to continue the effort. Otherwise, I'll be forced to quit.


From DemoCast, you get top-quality journalism from a dedicated wrecking-crew. DemoCast speaks truth to power (and though I'm Jewish, I'm known for taking-on the malfeasance of the Jewish establishment). Please come check it out!


Many rivals conspire to shut me down. Will you help to doom or save me?

Thank you for your generous support to enhance the DemoCast effort!

Please consider:

I'd like to nominate us, RangerAgainstWar.

Ranger is a retired Special Forces Army officer and terrorism counteraction subject matter expert opposed to the Iraq War and the War on Terror. He sees the Bush administration as undertaking an unjustified military responses to terrorism.

In addition to the issue of terrorism, this blog deals with social and political issues in a level-headed manner. Provocative, sometimes a bit snarky, but never too much so.

We don't toe a party line, and we're not what you expect. And that's a good thing.

Thank you for your consideration.

I nominate my brand new tarot blog. You can learn how to read, get a reading, see deck/book/product reviews and more. Authors stop by sometimes to guest blog and give things away.

I nominate Logisticsmonster.com for the relentless, untiring pursuit to give us the best information behind the subversive matriculation of forces trying to take over our country.

These two blogs are great blogs to visit and read; both Bill Zahren(a/k/a the Pressdog!) and Jeff Iannucci(a/k/a My Name Is IRL) both bring in their own manner a unique sense of humor, sarcasm, news and opinion to the world of open-wheel racing. Either one would be worthy of nominating in the category of Best Hidden Gem.

Three Wise Men
http://threewisemen.blogspot.com
http://threewisemen.blogspot.com/rss.xml

I strongly recommend Mothers of Brothers. Two skilled writers (and mothers!) share tales from their boy-heavy families. It's a remarkable mixture of humor and insight. Worth a daily visit as they have new content all the time.

I second Jon Swift above for Three Wise Men. Of course, TWM is my blog so of course I'm going to shill for myself. But we managed to be a finalist in the 2007 Weblog Awards and we've only improved since then, so I think we're worth a look-see.

Ruth Lace

This blog is facinating! An 85-year-old lady writes about her life in rural Georgia -- she is lively and recalls so many wonderful traditions and little-known, everyday aspects of rich and full living while in poverty in a mill town. It is an important reminder that it is not the lack of money or material goods that is "poverty," rather it is the lack of love, family and community. Sadly, life today falls short in many ways. BTW, that 85 year old lady is a minister and her worthwhile daily activities put most of us to shame!
