2004 Weblog Awards

Since the last endorsement I made was completely successful (I credit myself for Bush's victory), I thought I might make some endorsements for the 2004 Weblog Awards currently under way.

Read, and go vote!

For Best Middle East Blog I've voted for Iraq the Model every day. Have a look when you've got a few minutes. Those guys will convince you that democracy is not only possible in Iraq, but now they've had a taste, with reasonable support, they won't settle for anything less.

You're endorsing some guy from Maryland over a fellow North state blogger for Best Design ? The nerve.

Sorry, Joe - it was a close decision for me, but wherever it was close, I went with the underdog.

And yes, Best Design was a toss-up between you and Jay.

Steve H at Hog on Ice is a good choice. If you like him, you might also like Velociworld.
