The anonymous Editor of Blawg Review is once again setting up the selection of Blawg Review of the Year as a contest.
Since I did a Thanksgiving-themed Blawg Review (#188), with a little extra help from Arlo Guthrie on guitar, I have a vested interest in who wins.
Ed. has thankfully provided a short thumbnail sketch of each review, so if you are one of the people allowed to vote (see The Rules below) you will not be left scratching your noodle trying to remember which one was which.
Here are the rules, which Ed. has nicely labeled “The Rules,” so we easily follow along…
Any of the issues of Blawg Review #141 to #191, inclusive, is qualified to be nominated for Blawg Review of the Year 2008.
Every blog that has ever hosted Blawg Review, or is scheduled to host an upcoming issue of Blawg Review, is entitled to post its nominations of as many of the qualified issues of Blawg Review (other than one’s own) as it wishes to acknowledge for consideration for recognition as Blawg Review of the Year 2008.
Such nomination posts shall be calculated as votes for Blawg Review of the Year only if the nominating blogger advises the Editor of Blawg Review by email of a link to such nominations.
After 11:59 PM, GMT, on January 31, 2009, the Editor of Blawg Review shall determine the Blawg Review of the Year that has earned the most qualified nominations recorded in posts of which the Editor has been duly notified by email before that time.
Editor reserves the right to amend these rules as may be necessary for the sake of clarity and fairness.
If you haven’t done a Blawg Review, I would encourage it. If you’re like me, it a great way to have fun. Of course, if you’re like Greenfield, it can be a misery, which is to say, your mileage may vary.
One last thing: Unlike the ABA contest on the 100 Best Blawgs, in this one you can’t stuff the ballot box, as is happening over there.
