If you guys want to win, you'd better get your readers to vote for you. You know how it works--elections are all about getting out the vote.

For what it may be worth, Norsehorse's Home Turf is in the running as well; or, at least I have attempted to provide those visitors and regular readers of mine the information and opportunity to participate as they might deem fit to do.

In addition, in yet another shameless act of self-promotion, anyone who has not read this week's pick by Cathy Resmer for The Weekly Post, make sure to check it out, here.

In fact, stated in the most general of terms only of course and merely offered as a suggestion to those who have not yet quite decided about what blog to vote for, The Weekly Post category as well as other such categories within the many postings of 802 Online are an excellent place to begin the process of surveying for potential blogs to sample and pick from when considering what blog to nominate for the Best Vermont Blog Daysie award.

Which leads to me to consider thinking about, just what does makes a blog the Best Vermont Blog anyway?

I suppose that is up to each individual to figure out and answer for themselves.

Don't worry Cathy.

We're getting out the vote down here!

Ok, since Cathy is promoting certain blogs in this post, I am going to use the comments to suggest folks consider Down on the Farm or Sugar Mountain Blog.

Just to be clear, I don't mean to be promoting anybody. I just linked to those folks because they're trying to get their readers to vote for them.

I'm just trying to encourage some healthy competition. Also pointing out how people can win by telling their readers about the contest...

I'll promote someone - my wife!

Vote for Sarah!

The question is, is the Vermont blogosphere trafficked enough to supporta more thorough award system? I mean, comparing Knit Knerds to Carpetbagger is some serious apples-and-oranges stuff. What we need is a best political blog, best hobbyist blog, best video game blog, best sports blog, etc...

I was thinking the same thing (as Odum).

...and how often does that happen, Charity? (heh)

Coming to the BBQ? Fear not - Last week, Baruth and I encountered Rainville staffers who were planning on attending. Maybe we can have a right-vs-left softball game.

As if there only exists people on the right and left, eh?!

How about those who might be middle-of-the-road types or, true Independents (like myself) and the like, huh?!

What, does it mean we end up having to be the umpires or something?

Looks like I have yet another reason not to bother attending the upcoming BBQ, as I am in neither of those two camps and also do not feel inclined on choosing sides either; especially as it is sometimes really hard to tell the difference between the two, if ya' know what I mean (i.e., it seems that the two sides have much more in common than not at times).

:-) [smile]

Instead of left vs. right instead however, why not consider having such a game be between bloggers vs. journalists-(non-blogger ones)/politicians/campaign staffers and the like: i.e., bloggers vs. all others.

In this way, people like myself will certainly know just what team we belong to and are expected to participate on.

Within the second to the last paragraph of my previous comment post, I had meant to write (omitting the 2nd instance of the word instead):

"...and how often does that happen, Charity?"

Ha! I was thinking the same thing. (Oh no, that’s twice now!)

I was planning on coming to the BBQ until I read on VDB about all of the politicians' staffers coming. UGH! Just kidding, I still plan on coming.

I suspect you and odum agree on the flag burning amendment, too...

Great post on that topic on She's Right (also featured in Seven Days).

Hope to see you all on Sunday.
