Last year I attended the Bloggies at the South by Southwest Interactive conference. The presentation was wonderfully low-budget, like a high school assembly. But, oh THE FUNNY. Not only were funny people doing the presenting, there was a huge screen next to the stage showing the IRC conversation about the presentation. So, imagine a presenter saying something funny, and then almost simultaneously, more funny people chatting about the presenter and mocking him. It was so meta that several audience members actually turned inside-out and had to be rushed to the hospital.
Anyway, I’m going again this year (yes, you’ll get your feminist strippers – hang on) and I WANT A BLOGGIE. Gimme gimme. Please. Although there are far more worthy candidates, I’m asking anyway. Won’t you nominate me? Please? I have included this emotionally manipulative kitten to help you with your decision.
To nominate Librarian Avengers for the Best Topical Weblog category, go here. Yes, I know I’m a publicity whore. La la la. Tttpth.
Here are the other fabulous blogs I’ve nominated. I left out some of the obvious ones, like Boing Boing, since they were well-represented last year. Check them out, but not while you are drinking anything that will hurt if you snort it through your nose. I’m just saying.

Gee, I wish you’d list your fave library-related blogs (even though that might not be an award category).
Thanks for mentioning the GLBT blog faves – I knew about neither of them. (The blogosphere is expanding far faster than my pathetic attempts to keep up with it, so I rely heavily on recommendations of library bloggers like Thee.)
And I thought I’d get “Least likely to post anything for a two month period”.
Well, it’s very hard to say no to that kitten…
PS. Thanks for thinking of me for the Aussie/NZ vote.
Thanks so much for the nomination! I will spread the word about this blog!
If the feminist strippers are as cute as that kitten …
