Best New Blog

| | Comments (192)

Nominate your choice for Best New Blog. The blog must have been established after November 13, 2006 - when last years nominations opened.

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.

This is the home of Bazzy Boy the all Australian legendary racehorse. He is one mighty fine steed without a doubt and renowned for his high speed and steadfast manner. Nothing ever phases Bazz except maybe the bags of death with worms hanging out of their bums, the horse eating pygmies (Children) and the occasional Satans Puppy wandering around the property.

He declares with enthusiasm that DRESSAGE IS GAY!!!! His common retort to anything physical is a simple BOLLOX!!! and if he can get out of actually doing anything, he's a happy horse.

Bazzy's Blog is a mix of his observations around his 20 acre paddock which he shares with Nobby the woofty coloured no knackers shortarse, Jacko the Spacko with the heart on his arse, Taffy Boy, The White Thing and his beloved filly girlfriend Cherry.

Written by Bazz himself (Honest) The blog is if you pardon the pun, straight from the horses mouth.

Here is just a small taste of Bazz's Feedback

I laughed so hard I bust a rib

OMG I just sprayed coffee all over my desk

Someone from the office just called an ambulance I was laughing so hard

Oh great now I have pee'd myself, thanks Bazz

That is the funniest website I have ever seen, period, good on ya Bazzy

God your a hopeless horse Bazz LOL

Mommy MD: A Guide to Realistic Parenting



I created this blog because as a mom and pediatrician I wanted to offer a real life perspective of raising kids. I talk about the joys and fears and all the crazy ups and downs. I give realistic advice of a mom who's a doctor and who has young kids and is living the life like they are. I remind parents to stay strong, to love deeply and have no regrets.

I am going nominate "The Hong Kong Daries" for the blog awards.

This is a blog all about life in Hong Kong peppered with stories, thoughts and articles about doing business in China and its culture. I also take a wry look at some of the less serious areas and aspects of life here.

Occasional quips are also made about my wife, Mrs B who is here with me.

The inspiration comes from the late writer and broadcaster Alistair Cook and his "Letter from America." Its just more Chinese and copies the format.

Web site:

This is a great new parenting blog, by a mom and children's book author (Maxwell's Mountain, Horris Grows Down). The writing is excellent, and the pieces sincere. Shari is willing to talk about things that others are afraid to admit to others. I think it is award worthy and definitely worth checking out.

The following blog receives my humble nomination. It is a left/right blog with plenty of politics, sports and entertainment to spare.

This post alone has surfaced as one of the leading Fred Thompson posts on the web. Google 'Fred Thompson's wife' and it is #1 on the list due to the enormous traffic the topic is getting.

Caledonia Wake Up Call

Better and more detailed coverage of occupation and multi-tiered justice and law enforcement in Ontario, than all Canadain media and on-line blogs combined. The detail, facts, and massive amount of information and work speaks for itself.
Nothing more relevant and timely. Nothing compares to this site.

Even Small Dead Animals web site & weblog no longer "links" to the facts and truth of what is happening in Ontario. :-(

The Crossed Pond

Barely six months old, this political blog that spans both sides of the Atlantic has already been rated as one of the Top 100 Right-of-Centre blogs in England, and has been featured in the Washington Post, Time, The Atlantic, The London Times, National Review, and others. A heavy emphasis on politics but it mixes it up more than you'd think.

Nice Deb is nice. And Wickedpinto would say she's got jugs. I wouldn't say that even though she does and her Farrah Fawcett quality photo (hair and legs go on forever) that was at Innocent Bystanders is an internet classic and hotter than the surface of the sun.

Skellie at Skelliewag.

This generous and smart girl just continuously AMAZES me.

Always with an eye-catching picture for each quality post, she publishes useful and innovative content, from how to create vital (and viral!) content to how to get noticed and on the benefits of simplicity to the value of heeding her writing tips.

And I only recently learned that her blog is only 3 MONTHS old but she's already got 600+ FEED subscribers!

Shamelessly putting myself in the new category now . . .

I was a nice kid.)

"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!
