The 2006 MilBloggies
Now that the Oscars are over, we can turn our attention to the really important awards -- the 2006 MilBloggies. You have to register with the site in order to vote, but it's worth the effort -- there are a lot of good milblogs out there that could use your support before voting closes on Tuesday, Feb. 27th. I'm most excited about voting for submarine wife Wendy of All Ahead Full in the "Spouses" category; hers is the only submarine-related blog I could find among the finalists. In the Navy category, all the nominees (CDR Salamander, Neptunus Lex, SMASH, and Doc in the Box) are great, but the 'Phib got my vote. The Veteran category likewise has five great nominees, but I went for Blackfive -- partly because they have submariner Subsunk posting over there. For Military Supporter, my vote went to FbL at Fuzzilicious Thinking because of her work on Project Valour-IT -- although most of the bloggers nominated also supported this worthy cause. The other categories also have many worthy blogs to consider -- it's worth a couple hours of your time to check them out if you haven't read them before.
