    I nominate Cleansing Fire for Best New Kid on the Block. They've only been around for about 9 months or so. They focus on litrugical abuse in the Diocese of Rochester, but a lot of their stuff rings true, no matter what it pertains to. God bless them!cleansingfiredor.blogspot.com

    Cleansing Fire (http://cleansingfiredor.blogspot.com/) for "More Catholic Than the Pope", "Best Armchair Theologian", "Best Visual Treat", and of course, "Best New Kid on the Block."I have quickly become a huge fan of this blog. They have it all: news, commentary, expose liturgical abuses, humor, original YouTube comedy videos, etc. The blog has only been around like 8 or so months, and they already have over 300 daily readers.As for best blog by a heretic, Toward a Progressive Catholic Church (http://grosswirth.blogspot.com/) by "Married Priest From Rochester, NY" Ray Grosswirth.

    I wish there was a catagory for "Favorite American patriot" as there seems to be so few of them in the real world. If there were such a catagory I would nominate Adrienne over at….http://adriennescatholiccorner.blogspot.com/I think there's a difference between having a political blog and being a loyal American. Being loyal is more importiant to me afterall anyone can say any stupid thing about politics and have a political blog but I think a well placed heart- a loyal heart deserves an award. This award would clearly define what kind of a political blog one has.

    Dear Miss Kat, Cathy of Alex nominated me for best crazy blog a while back. I wasn't going to say anything but I was wondering if you would mind including me as I have already made an ass out of myself by bragging to my husband and grown children about the nomination. As a homemaker to 8 people I clean toilets, and kids faces for a living and any feelings of self worth have long left me. Naturally only a fool would expect to win against such worthy competitors however it made my day that someone felt as though my blog was top rate-(hahaha) if even for a moment. Perhaps my family could consider me as more than just a maid servant.. Thank you , God bless you Belinda 😉
