My Picks for 2005 Weblog Awards...

My regular Sunday post below this one...


OK... I know what you are thinking..."Thank God, Cathy is finally weighing in on her choices... Now I can go vote with confidence!"

Yes, the wait is over and although I am not a finalist in any category... I'm not bitter, no not at all..I find it important to express my opinion... because there are some mighty fine blogs out there.

As a sidenote, it is this author's humble opinion that the nomination round was rigged...Afterall, I did nominate myself...Not to mention I even had a sponsor! Ahhhwww.... go figure...

OK the real reason I did not make it to the finals is due to the simple fact that MY category does not exist.... That's right... There isn't a category for "Best Pointless Rambling Blog That Takes Forever to Download". I'd bet big bucks that I'd win if that were a category...

Here we go.... My picks are:

Best Blog: Michelle Malkin When does she sleep?

Best New Blog: Wuzzadem He makes me laugh.

Best Conservative Blog: Ace of Spades . A tough choice until I saw Ace's campaign. No kittens will be killed on account of me...

Best Media/Journalist Blog: Michael Yon It doesn't get better than this guy...

Best Culture/Gossip Blog: The Llama Butchers. I like saying Llama...

Best Photo Blog: Japan Window No matter how chaotic my day has been, I can visit Andy and be instantly calmed by his photography.

Best Military Blog: This is a tough category for me... I visit nearly all these blogs faithfully... I've narrowed it to 2... Major K and One Marine's View. I connect with these 2 more for whatever reason. I am rallied and angered and encouraged and saddened and hopeful because of the inspired words these two men write...

Best Podcast: Morning Coffee Notes. Voting solely because I will occasionally have lost souls show up at my doorstep looking for my "pod"... Thanks for the traffic...

Best Canadian Blog: A North American Patriot Wonder Woman is a unique gal and should be read daily. Besides, we started our blogs at the same time and I believe I was her first "fan". I'm not a stalker though...

Best UK Blog: The Policeman's Blog Does he even know he is a finalist?

Best European Blog non-UK: OK... this is another tough category for me... simply because I love all the Italians listed and visit all of them and I don't speak or write a lick of Italian! I am rotating my votes between Otimaster, Robinik, Right Nation, and Free Thoughts. These folks are loyal friends to the United States... Don't let anyone tell you otherwise...

Best 251-500 Blogs: Nickie Goomba Why is he lagging in the numbers?

Best 501-1000 Blogs: Vince Aut Morire This is the first guy to add me to his blogroll... sometimes it's all about loyalty.

Best 1001-1750 Blogs: The Rebelution A couple of teenage twin Christian brothers...How do Christian teenagers stay true to God. It ain't easy... not in the world today... Great blog!

Best 2501-3500 Blogs: Diane's Stuff I like Diane 'cause she is one tough chick and writes about things that I think about... without the rambling...

Best 3501-5000 Blogs: The Reign of Ellen I just adore her.

OK... I think that's it... now go vote....vote often...

I think Kevin @ Wizbang should get a special award too... What a great guy, all the work...Holy smoke!!

Now... this is all in fun, I ask you to remember... Monday is an important day for the fight for democracy and freedom in Iraq. Remember and pray and stand in solidarity with them.

A North American Patriot - I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm a cyber-stalker of Wonder Woman.

Pretty good list Cathy! Rigged hmmm? Nothing to pay much attention to if you think about it! People know what they are and what they aren't! I'm sad to see Mudville's votes being so low though. It was pretty much a "toss-up" between Mudville and Michelle.

It's not about winning or losing, it's how you play the game..... Who am I kidding, of course it's about who wins! Sunday Morning Coffee is the best blog in the WORLD! (Unofficial Scootertrash results)

Thanks for the kind words! LOL @ "your" category. I just switch browsers when I log your blog- IE doesn't take much time at all.
