I’ve been only intermittently interested in this years Weblog Awards. Not that I don’t think they’re fun, and that I don’t appreciate being a finalist (you can vote for me here if you are so inclined), I do, I do! I’ve just been, as I mentioned elsewhere, ridiculously busy and distracted, so much so that I haven’t even been checking in and voting for myself everyday. I haven’t been nagging my husband and kids to vote for me from their computers (so naturally, without my reminding, they don’t!) but it doesn’t really matter; it’s still fun.
I have had a few people ask me who I have voted for, though – here’s a short list.
Best Blog – I’ve mostly voted for Instapundit, because he’s been so good for so long, but to my way of thinking the category is marred for not including Captains Quarters Blog which is – for my money – hands down the best, most balanced, most consistantly well-written blog in the whole ‘sphere.
Best Centrist Blog: I’m a fan of <a href="http://www.althouse.blogspot.com" Althouse, but she doesn’t need my vote (and I’m not sure why she was in that category, and not Individual, anyway) and so I’ve been voting for C’est Moi which is a very smart site with a hostess who is a true centerist.
Best 251-500: Also great blogs here, I finally decided to vote for Betsy Newmark against stiff competition, because I think she’s under-appreciated and always really smart and insightful. Looks like she’s winning, too.
Gotta dash, I just got one of those phone calls: “I need my black suit for tonight and it’s rolled in a ball in the dry cleaning bag…”
Menfolk make me nuts.
UPDATE: Riehl World View is making a funny last-ditch pitch for votes!
