Remember to nominate your favorite UU blogs.

Today's the deadline for nominations to the second annual UU blog awards. I had a great time browsing through the 2005 archives of some of my favorite Unitarian Universalist bloggers, and I've nominated a bunch of people. (An observation for Word Press users: Most of you don't offer a very easy way to find past entries chronologically, so I hope you'll nominate some of your own entries — I didn't have the time to be very comprehensive in my search.)

In other blog news, MyIrony has retired and taken up a new life at Making Chutney. If you are a recovering fundamentalist, you'll also want to note Chutney's other project, Healing Hagar. And, although I updated my Guide to UU Blogs less than a month ago, a bunch of new ones have dashed across my radar this month. I wish I could remember you all! If your blog isn't on my list, please indulge in a bit of self-promotion and let me know about your blog in the comments.

Last year did all nominations get voted on? Or just a subset? I made a statement about only the top X recieving nominations moving into the voting round and I can't remember why I said that. If last year all nominations made it to the voting stage I don't see a need to change the process.

I think I included every nomination in the voting, but I think multiple nominations of the same blog or entry was kept low because all the nominations were public in the comments at all times: people knew what had already been nominated.

It could be complicated this year, though, if every blog was nominated for everything, or if each category has 30 nominees. But if the nominees are listed with live links so that people can visit them while deciding how to vote, I don't see a big problem in listing a dozen or even 20 nominees. After all, it's really a way to encourage people to read more!
