Vote For Your Favourite Political Blogs
With less than a week to go till polling closes for Total Politics’ Best Blogs Poll 2010 we thought we’d take a moment to publicise the event and encourage all our thousands of readers to cast their votes.
Last year there were just two Green blogs in the top 100 (Jim Jepps’ The Daily (Maybe) and James McKenzie’s Two Doctors), though that is up from one the previous year. This year it’d be great to see a few more. We’re not allowed to list a slate of recommendations for you but if you’re struggling you can always check out our blogroll for a few suggestions or if you’re looking for Greens Gordon Hodgson maintains a pretty good list at Green Feed.
There’s a full explanation if you click the link at the top of this post but for your convenience we’ve reproduced the rules here too.
- You must vote for your ten favourite blogs and ranks them from 1 (your favourite) to 10 (your tenth favourite).
- Your votes must be ranked from 1 to 10. Any votes which do not have rankings will not be counted.
- You MUST include at least FIVE blogs in your list, but please list ten if you can. If you include fewer than five, your vote will not count.
- Email your vote to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Only vote once.
- Only blogs based in the UK, run by UK residents or based on UK politics are eligible. No blog will be excluded from voting.
- Anonymous votes left in the comments will not count. You must give a name
- All votes must be received by midnight on 31 July 2010. Any votes received after that date will not count.
And if voting for your favourite blogs isn’t enough, or sounds all too nice, Phil over at A Very Public Sociologist is running a 100 worst blogs poll at the moment too.
