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 your comment will not be published immediately.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.
  • 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.

Not even completely sure what "authority" is but I think it's how many times I'm linked on other peoples pages. Not sure but my blog is brand new but gaining popularity very quickly. This week my hits went from around 1000 a day to over 3,000 a day. Yesterday I got over 5,000. I think my site is growing so fast because I update it so often and I have good content. Check it out for new music ranging from indie rock to mainstream hip hop.

I would like to nominate daddyBstrong. I've checked other blogs, and, from the ones I've checked, I don't see any other that blends current events with history as I do, especially since I use music and literature (mainly poetry and quotes from fiction and non-fiction books) to enrich the posts.

Well, mine has been an "up and coming" blog for about three years now, but I guess that is life:

walls of the city

I nominate Staralicious for best up and coming blog.

As much as I'd love to nominate myself, I can't compete with OneMom:
