A (modest) step up from the Grammys

2003 Weblog Awards

Polling for the 2003 Weblog Awards has started over at Wizbang. Remember, if you don't go over and vote.... er.... well, nothing happens, exactly, except that you can't complain about who wins.

I'd been informed that I was actually nominated for something, so I clicked over to check out the myriad categories.

One question -- logically, how is it possible for Virginia Postrel to be nominated for Best Overall Blog, but not for Best Female Authored Blog? [What business is it of yours?--ed. Check out thethis map! I'm just sticking up for my country.]

Logically that make sense, but in practice I limited sites from appearing in too many categories. The idea for the whole thing was a somewhat eqaul playing field (i.e. the Ecosystem categories) and to get as many sites in the mix as possible.

Plus she wasn't nominated in that category...

Vizbangius, Dreznaw, and Postreland are all located close to each other. Some would say that's just a coincidence. :)

Hey, I was nominated as one of the 20 "best liberal blogs" (which is fine with me, despite the fact that a number of folks have said I'm a libertarian blogger, and plenty of lefties say I'm either a conservative or a traitor, but definitely not a lefty or liberal; all which is even more fine with me), but not as one of the "large mammals," despite that latter category being Extra-Large. C'est la vie, c'est la polls, c'est la blogging. (Is a blog masculine or feminine as a noun?; come to think of it, why is life female?)

Mr. Drezner,

Did you also know that you were selected as a "Conservative Stud"?

In answer to Mr. Carter's question at the bottom of that entry, if he wants a photo of me, he can find one right here. :-)
