News: October 2007 Archives
Finalists will be announced Wednesday. If we finish the finalist slates before then we will move up the announcement, but right now we're finishing the TTLB ecosystem categories and need all the time we can get. We may release the names of finalists in sections as the day goes on; it all depends on our progress in finalizing things.
Voting should begin Thursday evening.
In the meantime you can go see a mockup of the voting booth. If you want to stay up to date with our general press releases and notification you can sign up for our Weblog Awards newsletter. If you need to talk you can check out the forums.
PS - To those who have seen us looking at your sites from within our secret work bunker we say "hello." Yes we're checking you out. You may be a finalist; you may not. Check back Wednesday to find out for sure.
Update: The list will be up before midnight Eastern.

Over the next 24 hours we will be closing nominations for most categories. This is a manual process so it takes a while to complete. As long as a category allows you to enter a comment (which is how you submit a nomination) then nominations for that category are still open. The "+" rating of nominees will remain open throughout the awards.
A select few categories may be left open for a few extra days where the number of nominations is low. If there are categories left open we'll provide direct links to them in an update to this entry.
Finalist will be announced the last week of October and voting starts Nov. 1, 2007. Keep watching this page for news and information leading up to the voting period and make plans to join us at the awards ceremony at the BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Las Vegas, Nov. 8.

Since we're not quite ready to begin selecting finalist slates, and because there's always people late to the party, I'm extending nominations for all categories until Wednesday.

Monday Wednesday. Keep nominating your favorites and spread the word about nominations to other bloggers. A comment RSS feed (all nominations) and a comment search function (with RSS subscription option) are now available so you can track nominations.
Note: The following categories: Law, Tech, Celebrity, Comic Strip, Parenting, Science, Medical/Health, Pet, Music, Gossip, Video (vlog), Video of the year, Canadian, Middle East/Africa, Latino/South American, and most of the TTLB categories are where you should concentrate your efforts this weekend. Blogs can be nominated in multiple categories so some blogs nominated in specialty categories should be nominated in the TTLB categories as well.

We're running a few days behind the original schedule, but nominations for The 2007 Weblog Awards will open on Wednesday evening (U.S. Eastern time) October 3, 2007. Check the main page for nominations posts for all the categories.
We're adding an extra wrinkle this year during nominations. Instead of adding "me too" nominations you're encouraged to "vote up" your favorite nominees. It's not a vote like the ones made for finalists, it's just a way to make your collective voices known to the finalist selection panel. These votes have no official standing in the selection process - they're just another piece of information the panel will consider. That disclaimer aside, strong support for nominees may, in some cases, be an important piece of information for the panels consideration.
If you'd like to volunteer your services as a member of the finalist selection panel send a message to panel - at - weblogawards.org (using proper e-mail address syntax) and you'll be forwarded information about signing up.
