Despite spending too much time reading blogs than I probably should I still really don’t read enough of them to have an accurate picture of who should win the different categories in the Liberal Democrat Voice Blog of the Year Awards.
In my view James Graham remains the must read blogger, Alix Mortimer writes with a style that is a joy to read, and from time to time Alex Wilcock hits a nail on the head like no other. Yet I know that there is also a load of great blogging going out there that I am only dimly aware of.
However, although not nominating in every category, today I’ve sent in the following nominations for this year’s award as my “off the top of my head” take on the best of the years blogging.
Best new Liberal Democrat blog
I’ve chosen Neil because his blog, which focuses on issues to do with political communication, is always intelligent, interesting and, unlike a lot of other blogs, is actually useful as well as being entertaining. It fills an important niche in the Lib Dem blogospehere.
Best posting on a Liberal Democrat blog
Enid Blyton’s Famous Five return to television
There have been loads of great individual posts, but I’ve chosen this one just because I found it very very funny.
Liberal Democrat Blog of the Year
The Very Fluffy Diary of Millennium Dome, Elephant
Millenium has for a while been consistently one of the best Lib Dem bloggers, but this year the young fluffy one really deserves the top prize for his role in the bloggers’ interviews that have been organised over the last 12 months. It kind of makes him the ‘young David Frost’ of Lib Dem blogging.
