Nominations Open Wednesday

| | Comments (1)

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.

Read the Nominations FAQ and grab some logo link codes while you wait. Start passing the word around about the opening date for nominations.

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 - (using proper e-mail address syntax) and you'll be forwarded information about signing up.

I just found out that you can embed polls from the weblog awards on a homepage. Cool. Supporting us won’t get you a damn tote bag, but you will get regular beer blogging again. And we both know that you can’t get that on NPR." - Balloon Juice

"So I haven't been actively promoting my Weblog Award nomination. Sure, I mentioned it, and I put up a little button, but I haven't told you to vote, have I? I haven't told you to vote once every twenty-four hours, have I? I haven't told you to rise up, my minions, and smite the Internet with your collective force, have I? Have I? Well, now I have." - Looky, Daddy!
