Voting has now opened up for the 2006 Catholic blog awards. Somehow once again I have been overlooked under most intellectual and surprisingly nominated under most bizarre blog, most bizarre post, most humorous, best design, and most creative. So a warm thanks for those who voted for me in the various categories.
I am pretty much aware and visit almost every single blog nominated in the various categories. The only ones I weren’t familiar with were some progressive Catholic bloggers.
This year it is slightly different since my nemesis, I mean friend and sorely missed Fr. Sibley, is not on the ballot this time under most humorous blog. I nominated Maureen Martin’s hysterical CatholicNews.org for this category. Dale Price’s Dyspeptic Mutterings is another wonderful blog. When I grow up I want to write and fisk like Dale. In fact I would rather hunt with the Vice President than be the object of one of Dale’s fisks. One overlooked blog in this category was Rich Lugari’s great parody blog Musum Pontificalis. I was also glad to see Credibility nominated in the category for best design. One great blog not nominated for this category is Luminous Miseries which has both great design and writing. Reading his blog reminds me that I can’t write worth a darn, but then again reading most blogs reminds me of this.
Pretty much all of the categories make for some tough picks. Next year we need to add a new category for most overlooked blog Eve Tushnet.
By the way you are allowed to vote once a day. You can also vote if your are dead and live in Chicago.
