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 your comment will not be published immediately.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.

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.

Fobbits Like Ice Cream Too

Samantha Speaks
Marine news, history, and troop support

A reasonable, informed mil blog from a counter terrorism subject matter expert. A liberal bent, but mostly middle-of-the-road:

Ranger Against War

For the Air Force, this guy:

The war on big tobacco.

i second:
War on Big Tobacco

Always a great read.
War on Big Tobacco

What can you say about BT other than it is a great read.

I nominate Big Tobacco!

War on Big Tobacco

The War on Big Tobacco

I nominate Rangeragainstwar. It is what it says it is. Informed commentary from retired Special Forces Army officer against current approaches to terrorism. Doesn't get too bogged down in the technology or minutiae -- we take a generalist's point of view.

Highly allusive, sometimes snarky, but never mean-spirited. The goal is dialog across the disciplines, for that's where you'll find truth.

I nominate The Unlikely Short-Timer for best military blog of 2008.

Suspect's blog was, is and always will be the best blog ever.

I am going to have to second the nomination for The War on Big Tobacco. Love to read his stuff.

Big Tobacco is my Hero

He tells it like it is, the good the bad and the ugly.

Best Military blog:

Blue Star Chronicles

Big Tobacco

BT is the Ernie Pyle of our time. A true cigar afficionado in BDU's.

I smoked a La Gloria Cubana Wavell while writing this.

Not the whole truth (opsec), but better actually : fully authentic.
And of course great read.

Big Tobacco

Neptunus Lex

He won't win,I'm sure. Prolly doesn't care if he doesn't, either.

Lex has a great mind, experience and following.

Best Mil Blog:

The Long War Journal

Holger Awakens

I nominate Daniellaland -- witty, opinionated, quirky, and may leave you craving a funhouse mirror...

I nominate Big Tobacco at

Informative,hilarious, irreverant, but sometimes poignant and always entertaining.


War on Big Tobacco

I Nominate A Soldier's Mind Terri and Anthony do a great job of touching on current issues.

much as i admire and enjoy Chuck and Lex's sites, we "enlisted scum" (yeah, i really heard that oncet) have to stick together.

nothing but love.

I nominate Big Tobacco: AKA The War on Big Tobacco

Adam Kokesh: Revolutionary Patriot
