Give your favourite blogs the recognition they deserve
The new Total Politics magazine is compiling an annual guide to political blogging in the UK, and are running a competition to find the UK’s top 100 political blogs. Full details can be found here, but the basics are as follows:
1) Choose your top 10 (must be 10) from the Total Politics blog directory
2) Number them in order, with #1 being your favourite and so forth
3) Send them, along with your name and ‘Top 10’ in the subject line to
The deadline has been moved forward a week, because of printing deadlines, so you must submit your entries by midnight tonight (Friday, 8th August 2008). All entries stand a chance of winning Â£100 in political books!
As I mentioned last week, PoliticalBetting.com had some success in the recent Witanagemot Club Blogging Awards, winning the ‘Best Election Coverage / Polling Blog’ and ‘Best Discussion / Community’ categories, and coming in the top three for many of the other major categories.
Especially given the successes of the last 12 months – with tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of visitors, record page views (around 2.8m per month), significant MSM coverage (some of it apparently plagiarised), some great social events, and some thrilling election night coverage – I would like to see the Site that Mike Built come as close to the top of the pile as possible. That’s as much arm-twisting as I’m prepared to do – Get Out The Vote!
Remember, submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight tonight.
