Due to popular Demand*, I am going to run my own series of blog awards again. I am seeking nominations in the following categories:
  1. Best Political Blog (e.g. Caron's Musings, Helen Duffett)

  2. Best Fandom Blog (e.g. [personal profile] lizbee, Den of Geek)

  3. Best Feminist Blog (e.g. Feminist Law Professors, Pink Stinks)

  4. Wittiest Blog (e.g. FailBlog, BBC Comedy Blog)

  5. Prettiest Blog design (e.g. Thagomizer, Jon Ball)

  6. Sexiest Blogger (e.g. Penny Red, [personal profile] djm4)

  7. Best Beardy Blogger (e.g. [livejournal.com profile] burkesworks, my own dear wife).

  8. Best Non-human Blogger (e.g. Millennium Elephant, Pink Dog)

  9. Geekiest Blogger (e.g. [livejournal.com profile] davegodfrey, Geeka Chicas)

  10. Best Sex Positive Blog (e.g. Yes Means Yes, Modern Poly)
Each category will have a number blogs selected from the nominations, and there will be a public vote as to who wins each category. The winners of each category will be put forward in a public vote for the overall Best Blog award.

Anonymous nominations are allowed. You can nominate in as few or as many categories as you like. Blogs with multiple authors are also allowed in any of the categories. A blog must have been updated in the last quarter (three months) to be eligible. I reserve the right to reject nominations for entirely capricious and self-serving reasons, just like every other set of blog awards. The only difference is, I don't try and hide it.

Nominations close on SUNDAY at MIDNIGHT, that's in three days' time, at which point comments on this entry will be closed. So get nominating!

* i.e. Andrew Hickey asked me to do it.

I should blog a bit more to big up my chances, shouldn't I? Unfortunately, it's BiCon in four weeks, and I'm on the team, so that's not going to happen.

I don't have nominations in all categories, but here goes:

1 Best political blog - Millennium Dome
2 Best fandom blog - Den Of Geek
3 Best Feminist Blog - Feminist Hulk's twitter
6 Sexiest Blogger - nanila: her work is currently orbiting Saturn, and she's writing a series of awesome posts about being on safari. What's not to like?
10 Best Sex-Positive Blog - tajasel, for running the orgy.

does 'sex-postive' have to be the theme of the blog, or can it be writtern by an author who is all "hey, sex! Yay!"

ALSO. Are Twitters blogs? There is definitely one section I want to nominate a Twitter account into.

Hmm.

This is a good question. Officially, Twiiter is classed as a microblogging platform, and therefore is a subtype of blog.

However, to include Twitter is to include Facebook Status and Notes and a whole chunk of other stuff.

So it depends how SB is defining 'blog' for the purpose of this award, I'm inclined to say no, because Twitter is a different medium with different comment structure and similar, and I think this should be for non-micro-blogs, but a) it's not my call and b) I'm not sure I'm right.

Grow a beard

'Beard' is a state of mind, not a state of follicle

(Otherwise, Jennie'll have to admit to perpetrating sex discrimination AND ablism.)

I'm choosing to see it as a form of positive discrimination, so there'll be at least two awards (that and non-human) that you won't win, to give the rest of us a chance ;)

Depends on how you're defining Beard really. For some definitions, she's got me...

Also a definition that excludes me.

Com'on, we all know that if I had the capability, mine would be luxurient.

He may well be the best beardy blogger, but he definitely does not have the best beard. He's barely even trying next to me or Tez...

Some people I'd nominate are already on your long-list so I shall not repeat them. And some I just have no damn idea 8)


1. Best Political Blog - millenniumelephant. Cos i love many other people's political blogs, but he's the one i point the non-politicos at to get them brainwashed with left wing propaganda interested.

5. Prettiest Blog design - http://fuckyeahbisexuals.tumblr.com/

7. Best Beardy Blogger - Mike Szymanski http://www.examiner.com/x-3366-Bisexuality-Examiner

9. Geekiest Blogger - I'm going to pretend that means geekiest blog and say http://jenyockney.blogspot.com/ :P

actually, that i can't come up with non-bi nominations in most of the categories probably makes the pretence in number 9 pretty unconvincing 8)

And some more...

daweaver:   (pluralism)
From: [personal profile] daweaver
No more than three nominations per category, and no blog (or blogger) gets nominated more than once. Being a liberal (or a good egg), I define blog to include anything bloglike.

  1. Best Political Blog -- 853, The Actual Taxpayers' Alliance, Two Doctors

  2. Best Fandom Blog -- Lew Stringer, Life After Mastermind, Weaver's Week

  3. Best Feminist Blog -- Broadsides, Penny Red

  4. Wittiest Blog -- Apathy Sketchpad, Quizzlestick, Victoria Coren

  5. Prettiest Blog design -- TV Cream

  6. Sexiest Blogger -- Strfvr, The Atrocity Exhibition

  7. Best Beardy Blogger -- Currybet

  8. Best Non-human Blogger -- Ratings Bear has failed to post within the time limit, so no nominations here.

  9. Geekiest Blogger -- Antony Green, James Masterton

  10. Best Sex Positive Blog -- There are people who write about sex rather than enjoying it?


Most of these links are to the RSS feeds, content is queen and presentation a peacock. Except in category 5.

Since very few people have nominated a non-human blogger, I thought I'd nominate the *second* best stuffed toy blogger, Bully The Little Stuffed Bull - http://bullyscomics.blogspot.com/ - just so millennium (who should win) doesn't get too complacent.
