I have a few blogs I’d like to endorse in the 2006 Weblog Awards competition. There will be some categories I don’t post endorsements for, as I am not familiar with every category and some categories I’m familiar with I’ve never heard of the nominees.
Before I get to that, though, I’d like to encourage everyone to vote for yours truly in the best of the top 251-500 blogs category. I’m getting smoked, and I know I have more readers than the votes that have been cast so far for me. So get to votin’, ya’ll! Send the link to family and friends if you’re so inclined. Show me some of that vote love. Remember, you can vote once a day each day, until the end of the competition, which is a minute before midnight Friday.
Ok, here goes on the endorsements. Links to the categories are listed on this page.
Best Blog: Michelle Malkin
Best New Blog: Hard to pick just one, so I’ve been voting for one one day, and another the next: Blue Crab Boulevard, Jules Crittenden, and Hang Right Politics. All excellent new blogs.
Best Individual Blog: Going between Anchoress and Dan Riehl. I’m currently sick over that category, though, as Glenn Greenwald is in the lead. Bleh. (Update 12/12/06: Oops – my bad. I misread the numbers last night. I see James Lileks is in the lead, not GG. Whew!)
