Hey, I'm A Finalist Again!
The list of finalists for the 2007 Weblog Awards came out, and it looks like I'm a finalist in an Ecosystem category again! After finishing 2nd in the coveted "Best of the Top 2501-3500" category last year, I'm moving down a couple weight classes to battle for supremacy in the "Best of the Top 5001-6750 Blogs" group this year. Voting apparently starts tomorrow, so I'll fill you in with more specifics as soon as they come out.
Additionally, it looks like submariner gus van horn is a finalist in the 6751-8750 category, and fellow Idahoan (and Marine in her active duty days) MountainGoat is a finalist in the Best Political Coverage category. (I'm proud to say I nominated both of them; unfortunately, a few of my other nominees, including ninme and Adam, didn't make the finalist list for reasons I can't understand.)
Update 0646 02 Nov: The polls are open until Nov. 8; vote for The Stupid Shall Be Punished here! You can vote every 24 hours, so please -- vote early and often.
Update 1016 02 Nov: Edited to add hyperlinks to the polls in the main body of the entry. As of now, I'm just barely in the lead in my category (2 votes ahead of my nearest rival), but gus van horn has opened up a huge lead on his group. MountainGoat Report is up against some really tough competition, but she's chugging along. You can look at the other categories here.
