Best Individual Blogger

| | Comments (203)

Nominate your choice for Best Individual Blogger. With many popular blogs adopting a muti-author format, we've switched the Group Blog award to an individual award. The nominated author may write for an individual blog or be a member of a community or group site. Nominate by the bloggers name and primary site.

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.

Mike Hitchen

For doing the job the British press have so dismally failed to do!

Jill Havern said:

Mike Hitchen should definitely be considered for the Best Blogger (of the Decade!) Award for his hard work trying to find the truth and justice for Maddie McCann, the little girl neglected by her parents. Mike's blog also raises awareness of many other important global issues.

kizzbo said:

Mike has championed the cause of Missing Madeleine McCann - highlighting the negligence of her parents, the immorality of the fund and the sickening spin that Team McCann feed to the public across the world.

His blog has become a sanctuary for free-thinking individuals who refuse to accept that it is okay to leave 3 small children alone in their beds in a foreign country - and then gain celebrity status from this negligent deed.

I thank Mike for his blog - and I wish him well in these awards!

Laura said:

Thoughtful, thought-provoking, informative, compassionate and always articulate.Mike's loyal following is well-deserved.

The best Individual Blogger is the smartest and by far the most creative. I would like to nominate Erik Hare, who deliberately keeps everything plain and simple.

Unrelentingly honest, from the heart and from the hip, Mike has given a voice and sanctuary to those who thought the world had gone mad.

Elmer Quigley Gooseburger's blog is wickedly funny.

Elizabeth said:

Nomination for Mike Hitchen as Best Individual Blogger.

Mike Hitchen consistently writes to such a high standard - his blog is informative, entertaining and extremely popular. Furthermore, given the amount of people who support him by visiting his blog on a daily basis, Mike takes the time and trouble to welcome each and every individual and even notices if just one is absent for a couple of days. A truly wonderful man, an inspiration to many, and VERY deserving of this accolade.

Not Quite What I Had Planned

Want a healthy dose of perspective? Read Kristie's blog. Though she has faced personal tragedies that most people can't even comprehend, her husband and young daughter both had cancer, Kristie somehow manages to focus her life on love and laughter. And boy oh' boy, does she ever have a knack for turning life's everyday occurrences, like a bike ride, into HILARIOUS prose that can be appreciated by all.

Julie/Natalie Moore said:

Mike Hitchens Blog

For honesty, integrity and a simple dose of common sense in relation to the events following Madeleine McCann's disappearance.

Mike can hold his head up high whilst many others should hang their heads in shame for the rest of their lives. You never lose your focus Mike!

Hi everyone! Please consider my blog for nomination. It's not fancy and there are no sponsors, but it has some fun topics and thoughtful writing that you don't normally encounter in the myriad of blogs on the internet.

There have been a lot of interesting topics on my blog over the past couple of years, and even if I don't win an award, I'd still be happy if I was able to entertain people who are bored at work and want to read something cool.

Shelley Bee said:

I'm a big fan of Laurie Kendrick's blog. I go there to read her stuff daily and mostly, it's hilarious. Pain inducing hilarious at times, then there are also occasions when she can make you think...actually touch your soul.

Her writing is brilliant, poignant, whimsical, hilarious and though provoking. It makes me laugh and it has made me cry.

Her blog is the consummate box of chocolate--you go there and you never know what you're gonna get. The surprise is in the surprise.

Please consider this gifted woman for Best Blogger.

Thank you,

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!
