Ballot Boxing


We're still having a friendly battle with Chris Muir's "Day by Day" in the 2005 Weblog Awards (keep the daily votes coming!). We were briefly third overall this weekend until "Achewood" rocketed passed us. But among the toons, "Dilbert" remains the dominant line drawing.

Here are recommendations in a couple of other categories:

For Best Middle East or Africa Blog we like Regime Change Iran.
For Best European Blog (non-UK) we're torn between Davids Medienkritik and No Pasaran.

UPDATE I -- Dec. 13, 10:05 am CST: "Day by Day" has overtaken us -- it's still a close race!

UPDATE II -- Dec. 14, 9:39 am CST: It's been almost 24 hours since the last update. In that time we passed Chris and stayed ahead most of the day. But overnight he has passed us again and is widening the margin. So keep the daily votes coming! Only one day left.

UPDATE III: Here are a few more recommendations:
For Best Latino, Caribbean, or South American Blog we like babalu.
And for Best European Blog (non-UK) we've already mention two suggestions (see above), but we're even more torn now because we overlooked Free Thoughts.

UPDATE IV: Adam's Blog noted some mutual admiration among a couple finalists: A Great Moment in the Blogging Awards (hat tip Retired Geezer).

UPDATE V -- Dec. 15: "Day by Day" has pulled way ahead of us. Polls close at midnight.

UPDATE VI: "Day by Day" beat us (arrgh!). See Update II in this post for the wrap up.
