There are two large weblog award contests every year – Wizbang’s Weblog Awards, and the Koufax Awards. Voting for the 2006 Weblog Awards is now open, featuring several great blogs and a plethora of mediocre or risible ones. Unfortunately I didn’t make Best New Blog, but I’m mostly aiming for the Koufax. You can vote once a day, so vote early and vote often.
My official slate of endorsements is,
Best Individual Blog: Majikthise (which is 250 votes down, but still a lot better than the alternatives)
Best Liberal Blog: Pandagon (where the contest is about a 7-way tossup)
Best LGBT Blog: Pam’s House Blend (which is leading by 60 votes)
Best Science Blog: Good Math, Bad Math, with apologies to PZ (the contest is really just between Pharyngula and Bad Astronomy)
Best European Blog (non-UK): A Fistful of Euros (too few people are voting in that category…)
Best Top 250 Blog: Feministe (which is running neck-and-neck with Stop the ACLU, so go vote)
Update: Best Medical/Health Issues Blog: Respectful Insolence (which is leading by 30 votes, but too few people are voting)
The rest don’t have blogs worth voting for, as far as I can tell. I already know what the best Canadian blog around is, and it didn’t make the contest.
