Blog of the Year – one day left to get your nominations in Aug 30

The deadline for nominations in this year’s Liberal Democrat Blog of the Year awards is midnight tomorrow (Friday night), so you’ve got just over a day left to get your nominations in.

Don’t forget that you can make more than one nomination in any given category, but that blogs and posts from the judges (me, Ryan Cullen of LibDem Blogs, Lynne Featherstone MP and last year’s winner and Liberal Democrat Voice editor Stephen Tall) are not eligible. Shucks.

There are six categories, including the much sought after title of Liberal Democrat Blog of the Year. For the “Best posting on a Liberal Democrat blog” category, remember to nominate your favourite single post since October 2006, rather than the blog on which it appeared.

You should email your nominations to as soon as you can. Full details are on the party website, and the shortlists will be announced next week.

  1. I have a question about the “new blogs”.

    i am in the odd position of my blog being created on 1st September 2006, which appears to be after the close of less than 12 months old. Assuming nominations had to be in by the end of August last year for last year’s award, my blog could not qualify last year because it had not even been created, yet it does not qualify this year because, although it is less than 12 months old, it falls outside the 11 month barrier that has been set up.

    It really is an odd situation.

    There wasn’t a Best New Blog award last year, Nich, so you’re not missing out any more than I missed out when there wasn’t such an award in 2004.
