Notice that there is no “Scholarly Blog” category for the 2004 weblog awards. Given some recent interest in the area, this sounds like something there _should_ be, if only so that we have a better grasp of what people think is important in an academic weblog. So I propose you make such nominations here.
I further propose that you nominate (in the comments) both group scholarly blogs and an individual ones. I can really only think of four group scholarly blogs, off-hand, but that is why there is a nomination process!
Not that this is even an issue, but I remove myself from the running, for obvious reasons.
After it seems the nominations have leveled off, I’ll set up a vote, and the winner will receive — oh what’s a good prize for an academic? A reserved parking spot? A cheap bottle of port? An endowed chair? Well, we’ll have to work on that.
If you are not entirely sure who to nominate, look over the (quite incomplete) Scholars Who Blog page. And feel free to nominate yourself.
Update (11/21): And if you can help get word out about this, I’d appreciate it.
Update (11/22): Per Josie’s request in the comments, I’ve put up a simple nomination form. In some ways, I prefer the transparency of the comments, but if you would rather nominate privately, you now have a way to do it.
Final Update (really, 11/22). James Farmer has caught the pass and is running for a touchdown. (Or, presuming he may be a footy fan, for a “behind,” er, or something.) Anyway, all the action is moving to the site he has set up here I’ll still be involved, and I’ll move the existing nominations over, into the “overall” group and individual categories (and preserving anonymity for those who used the form). Thanks to James for taking the lead on this.
