THE HOUSE MAKES THE WEBLOG AWARD FINALS
CATEGORY: Blogging

I am pleased to announce that this blog has been named as a finalist for “Best Conservative Blog” in the 2009 Weblog Awards.

The last time I was a finalist was in 2005, also for Best Conservative Blog. No doubt this surprises some of you as much as it surprised me. Still, I’m pleased that the Awards Committee saw fit to include me as a finalist this year.

No doubt I will finish last or next to last given the quality of the competition:

 Add to any feed reader  Victor Davis Hanson
Add to any feed reader  RedState
Add to any feed reader  Ace of Spades
Add to any feed reader  Power Line
Add to any feed reader  Eject, Eject, Eject!
Add to any feed reader  Plumb Bob Blog
Add to any feed reader  Michelle Malkin
Add to any feed reader  American Thinker
Add to any feed reader  Blue Collar Muse
Add to any feed reader  small dead animals
Add to any feed reader  Little Green Footballs
Add to any feed reader  Right Wing Nut House
Add to any feed reader  The Next Right
Add to any feed reader  Atlas Shrugs

Frankly, I had no idea nominations were going on. Otherwise I would have directed my readers to the site - not only to nominate me but to take part in nominating your favorite blogs in other categories as well. Not sure who nominated this blog but whoever you are, thank you.

I was glad to see my friends Tom Lifson, Rich Baehr, and Ed Lasky nominated at American Thinker, one of my employers. AT is a finalist in both the Best Political Blog and Best Conservative Blog category. More brainpower among those gentlemen than the entire liberal side of the blogosphere. They deserve the recognition.

Voting starts January 5. As I said, I fully expect to finish far off the pace but it still warms my cockles that there are a few people who still consider me a conservative worthy of approbation. I am proud and humbled at this singular honor.

btw - a great big shoutout to Kevin Alyward and his team who have, as they do every year, expended an enormous amount of time and energy to pull this thing together.

    Congrats, kudos, and good luck.

    I suspect you won’t finish last, as there are a couple of blogs in that list, including mine (Plumb Bob Blog) that most people have never even heard of. Still, I’m like you — that somebody actually considers our work on a par with the likes of Victor Davis Hanson or the Powerline boys is a stunning and unexpected honor.

    FWIW, I think your blog is superb.

    Thanks for the kind words. But don’t sell yourself short. Plenty of us have heard of your site although I am not a daily visitor. Keep plugging away and have a great 2009.

    Rick Moran

    I spent some time looking at all the blogs listed. In my mind this Blog is the best of the lot. You do a good job Rick Moran.

    I was surprised by this part of your entry: “More brainpower among those gentlemen than the entire liberal side of the blogosphere. They deserve the recognition.

    I hope I am not being too picky, but by attaching a slight to the ‘liberal blogosphere’ with the compliment to your friends at American Thinker I believe everyone involved (you and your friends) are slightly diminished. Wouldn’t it have been more effective to compliment American Thinker without including the put down? Acknowledging that I am short does not make anyone taller.

    Keep up the great work on this outstanding Blog.

    I like to think I read some of the best and most of the ones I read are on your list above.
    However, methinks you don’t give yourself enough credit Rick. You are one of the best out there, and have been for several years.

    Here is my third (and final) post in a series of unfair, sloppy, and intellectually lazy reviews of blogs that are finalists in the 2008 Weblog Awards.  And to top it off, I’m posting it after voting has already been open for six days and has on…
