Best European Blog

The 2008 Weblog Awards

I got the news a couple of days ago that my blog had been named as one of ten finalists for the Best European Blog (Non UK) category in the 2008 Weblog Awards.

This was totally unexpected but highly welcomed! In fact, the Weblog Awards are the world’s largest blog competition, with over 500,000 votes cast in the 2007 edition for finalists in 45 categories, and in the past I have perused them over the years to discover some great blogs to add to my blog reader. So I am both stunned and honored to be considered worthy of inclusion in the list of finalists for the Best European Blog.

There is a small window of opportunity for readers to vote for their favorite nominees (January 5th through the 12th). I have added a direct-link badge in the right sidebar to make it easier for you to vote.

Voting rules:

  1. You may vote once every 24 hours in each poll.
  2. After voting in an individual poll you will be locked out from voting again in that poll (on the computer you voted from) for 24 hours.
  3. Each poll has its own separate 24 hour lockout control. Voting in, for example, Best European Blog will not lock you out of voting in other categories.

Needless to say, I would be very grateful and honored if you would consider voting for me ...


  1. You got my vote. I've been off line to detox from all the media "stuff", so it looks like I started back up just in time. Congrats, you should win... Happiest, healthiest new year to you and yours....

  2. Well you've got mine!
    Buon anno and congratulations!!

  3. in bocca al lupo

  4. Ehm... io ho provato a vedere il sito ma non ho capito come si vota!
    Se me però me lo spieghi (in Italiano) ti voto!

  5. Faccio il tifo per te, ed ovviamente hai il mio voto.
    Venirti a trovare è un vero piacere.

  6. I have voted for you, man. We have different ideas - about politics or religion, for example - but I respect your ideas and most of all I think your blog is highly above the average.

    Buon Anno
