Taking a brief hiatus for personal issues- should be back in form by Thursday. Remember to vote in the Blog Awards, and I might point out that despite the fact 19 people linked to the awards, I do not have THEIR submissions. Hrmm. Below are the categories.
Just a reminder, have your Blog Awards submissions in by 18 August. The original post is here with rules and categories, and I have also included it below for your ease.
It is August, and other than some flatulence from Al Gore and some chaos in California, news is slow. Thus we are going to have some Blogger Awards. You, my friends, get to participate. All you have to do is cut and paste the awards into an email to me, [email protected], send it to me by Monday, 18 August, and I will tally them and put them up. Please include the url of the bloggers you are voting for in your email with “BLOG AWARDS” in the subject line, as well as your blog name (if you have one). Winners will be rewarded with permalinks for a month. If I don’t get 50 submissions, I am not going to bother tallying them. Here are the categories:
1.) Most Underrated Blog
2.) Snarkiest Blog
3.) Most Consistently Pessimistic Blog
4.) Most Consistently Optimistic Blog
5.) Best Original Source Blog (posts are predominantly his/her own material)
6.) Best Researching Blogger (posts are always thoroughly linked, explained, and well-reasoned)
7.) Best Essayist
8.) Angriest Blog (The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler is not allowed as a choice. He has perfected the form. All other entries will be tallied)
9.) Most Creative Link Whore
10.) The Atrios Memorial Award for Left-Winger Who Thinks Raving Bush Hate Is Justified (Eschaton votes will not be tallied)
11.) The Damn the Clenis
