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:


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 your comment will not be published immediately.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.

  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Wednesday, November 19, 2008.

Barataria - the work of Erik Hare

Erik was a finalist last year when he was hosted on a different site. His comments on the state of literature are always thoughtful and something you don't see anywhere else!

The Scattered Proud

A novel written on a blog!

Breeni Books

Breeni reviews books and has contests just because she loves books so much. She is the future of literature, a time when reviews come from the grassroots of people who simply love to read.

Nathan Bransford

Nathan does more to help professional writers than any other agent, and he does it on his blog. Engaging and informative, Bransford's blog is a must-read for any aspiring writer.

Jack Bunny is a playwright who comments on arts, literature, and life in general

West of Mars-The Meet and Greet

Susan Helene Gottfried is the author of Trevor's Song, an edgy novel about the relationships within a rock band. West of Mars is the companion blog that includes outtakes not included in the novel. It's a fun way to get to know the guys of Shapshifter during their down time!

I nominate the following blog:

Shana's Literarily

Diary of a Heretic

Diary of a Heretic features serialized fiction, with new posts almost every day. Last year it came in third place in the Best Literature category and it has only gotten better!

Dan Leo

Dan Leo writes a fiction blog, featuring alternating novels that he writes as he goes. His writing is among the most original I've ever read. It's also hilarious and addictive.
But reading it for the first time, you may need more patience than the average blog demands.
He presents both novels as found work, written by characters he has created. Both stories involve a huge cast of characters. But stick with a few episodes and you'll be hooked.
One novel's plot is outrageous and plays with a gamut of genre styles. The other novel is set in Cape May, NJ. The narrator is modest to a fault and yet all manner of supernatural experiences seem to find him.
Dan Leo sets the novels during the 1960s and ends each episode with a rare period video.
