Best Blog

| | Comments (254)

Nominate your choice for 2007's Best Blog.

Update (Oct. 17): 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) nominations for that category are still open. When the option to leave a comment is not available you'll know nominations for that category are closed. The "+" rating of nominees will remain open throughout the awards.

To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:


Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services your comments will be moderated. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours to approve your comment, but all anonymous comments will eventually be posted. Only authenticated comments will be published immediately.

Rules And FAQ's

  • You can nominate yourself, don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • Rather than add a "me too" nomination for a site you're encouraged to use the "+" icon to indicate your preference for nominees. The "+" ratings are one extra piece of information the finalist selection panel can use to help generate the finalist slates in each category.
  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Wednesday, October 17, 2007.
  • Read The Nomination FAQ
  • Get technical help or ask questions at The Weblog Awards Forum
  • If you are linking to the contest consider using the nomination category archive, as it contains links to all of the nomination posts.

Brave Humans makes a real effort at doing what the blogosphere ought to do: provide a polite town meeting for debate of all sorts of ideas. This blog discusses civilly all those issues that blogs are famous for treating with everything except civility. The posters include liberals, moderates, and conservatives and some folks who are hard to pigeonhole. It deserves real consideration. Check it out.

Here is the man who speaks truth to power; who hurls shafts of pure reason at phalanxes of mendacity and infamy; who uses wit and sarcasm to unmask pretension, obfuscation and arrogant presumption.

This is the type of man to whom Nietzsche said:

Break up, break up, the tables of 'the good and the just'.

While the MSM was busy kissing the rears of the powers-that-be... when the American public needed THE TRUTH... Mike Rivero was there to tell it like it was. This man pulls no punches and his dedication to what is right seems to have no limits. Breaking news and powerful, informative, enlightening and decidedly non-partisan commentary about what goes on in the world. has, and will continue to make a positive difference.

elizabeth Duff said:

I nominate

I am an old newspaper reporter and I have never seen anyone not directly involved with investigative reporting for a news organization generate the kind of major national story suitablyflip has done with Norman Hsu. He beat the Wall Street Journal (which stole shamelessly from him) and every major news organization in the country. Not once, but repeatedly. He has become the "talk" of newspaper editors. His information was so important that the SEC studied his blog for THEIR purposes. He even beat them.
Moreover, his prose is remarkable. It is far better than most, standard journalistic prose.
He is unique. Suitablyflip has style and substance that the best news organizations in the country cannot match.
A pajama clad hobbiest beats everyone--that is worth a prize!

I'd like to nominate my blog for best blog.

Elect Romney in 2008


The reason that I would like to nominate my blog is because it's been the most active and had the longest presence in the Mitt Romney blogosphere. It began back in June of 2005 well before the frenzy of the 2008 Presidential election season began. I believe that in large part (internet wise anyway) it's been a big reason why Mitt Romney has the stature he does as a Presidential candidate. The site has also achieved some great Google and Alexa ranking, and at one point it had more traffic than any other Republican potential Presidential candidate blog (official or non-official) with the exception of a blog for Newt Gingrich.(The Very Model Of A Modern Major General?) I've very proud of what I have been able to achieve with it. I'm also very proud of everyone that contributes to it, it's definitely been something that's come from the heart!

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!
