So, who to vote for in which category? That's a hard one....
Me and Me in both.
But you can only vote for one in each. (Just click on the links above, scroll to the bottom and write the following words: "Confined Space." Or you can just send an e-mail here: Or here: firstname.lastname@example.org. It's always kind of embarassing asking people to vote for me. On the other hand, if I was really a shrinking violet, I wouldn't be writing this.)
The best part of these awards (aside from the fame, fortune and groupies) is that it shines the light on so many good blogs that you wouldn't ordinarily see. So check out the other blogs in these categories as well. If I wasn't voting for Confined Space, I'd seriously consider Informed Comment (the truth about Iraq), Effect Measure (Bringing Public Health to the public) as well as The Daily Howler (The Media) and Labor Blog (Labor Issues) among others.
and also make sure to visit:
- Best Blog by a Non-Professional/Sponsored Blog: My personal first choice here is Suburban Guerrilla, great political analysis that somehow makes you smile (or is it wince?) at the absurdity of it all. Also make sure to check out This Modern World, Alas, A Blog, Body and Soul, Liberal Oasis, Majikthise and Nathan Newman.
- Best Group Blog My recommendation: The American Street, Alas, A Blog, Seeing the Forest
- Most Humorous Blog: I'd have to go with Rude Pundit (although I'm a bit of a sicko), as well as Tbogg, Opinions You Should Have
- Best Writing:
Oh hell, this is just too hard. Take a couple of hours off -- or the whole day -- and just read them all. I'm sure there are jewels out there that I haven't even heard of.
Finally, while you're there, be sure to check out
Oh, and while you're there, don't forget to check out Wampum: Progressive Politics, Indian Issues, and Autism Advocacy They're the kind people who are working their butts off to bring us these awards.
