Weblog Awards 2005 - no, I'm not a contestant. But Making Light is - if you haven't been reading it and you're a writer or like writers or like writing you should be reading it.
BitchPhD. is up for best liberal blog. Yes, I'm letting you know my preferences here - it's my blog after all. My blog that's not even a dark horse grass roots write in candidate.
There's a category, as well, for best conservative blog. I haven't read any of them but I'm going to check out Right Wing Nut House.
Not to leave my friends in the Great White North out of it, there's a best Canadian blog category, too.
I didn't see a best writing/author blog. Too bad. Neil Gaiman's blog (on his website it's listed as "Journal") is wonderful, he writes regularly and deserves the notice for his willingness to let people into his live and world.
On another note, I submitted a 450 word humorous piece to the Erma Bombeck Writing Competition.
