2006 Weblog Awards
While we’re waiting for the mysterious and wonderful thing that will appear on this blog tomorrow, I thought it might be appropriate to announce (h/t skippy) that I’ve been nominated as a finalist in the 2006 Weblog Awards, in the category “Best Educational Blog.” My competition is IvyGate, Joanne Jacobs, Eduwonk, The Education Wonks, SpunkyHomeSchool, A Shrewdness of Apes, History is Elementary, Education Policy Blog, and Faith and Theology. All I can say is that I desperately need to win this one in order to keep alive my fading hopes for the postseason. Well, no, that’s not all I can say. I can also fall to my knees and thank Almighty Ba’al that I’m not in Sadly, No!’s category this year, because last year, in the all-important competition for Best of the Two Hundred and Fifty-First through Five Hundredth Blogs, the bad boys at S, N! pwned me but good, and then they celebrated in a most garish fashion, with flying kittens and dancing badgers and drinking Hitchens. Even now I can’t even bear to think of it. Though the gay creche is really, really funny.
Anyway, you can vote once a day from December 7 though 15, and therefore you should.
And why should you vote for me as best educationalisty blog, you ask? Well, just read the post below this one! And then let’s just wait and see if those other educationalesque blogs follow suit. Three-thousand word minimum at this table, people.
