LDV Weekend Meme: your favourite blog-posts

The Lib Dem blog awards are with us again – and one of the categories is ‘Best posting on a Liberal Democrat blog (since 1st September 2008)’. This is actually my favourite award for the simple reason that it recognises writing talent, pure and simple. By which I don’t mean that the prose has to be worthy of a Booker nomination; rather that the article has to attract, engage and provoke readers – elevate our thinking, if you like.

All of which musing prompted me to ask my LDV colleagues – and myself – to self-nominate the favourite articles we’ve posted here on the site. Here’s what we said:

Helen Duffett:
Do you belong to a suspicious group? It’s hard not to…

Alex Foster:
Twitter, #ldconf and Heidegger
Enough is enough
Actually, energy efficiency begins in Nottingham

Mark Pack:
According to the Daily Mail, I’m a foreigner
Quite simply, the best headline in a Labour leaflet – ever

Stephen Tall:
Never mind about Parliament, Hazel: what about actually giving real power to real people?
What has the Telegraph done for the reputation of journalism?
What must happen for the Lib Dems to overtake Labour?

Of course none of these posts are eligible for nomination in the Lib Dem Blog of the Year awards (Lib Dem Voice is excluded). But if you’re a Lib Dem blogger then one – or more – of your posts very well could be. So why not join in this LDV meme, and post on your blog links to those articles you’ve written which actually you’re quietly rather proud of, and which would be eligible for the ‘Best Post’ gong?

If you do, please leave the relevant link to your blog in the comments thread so we can all have a read. And perhaps even nominate your blog-post(s).

    @ Tony Dawson, The Brightlingsea Division doesn't fall wholly within the Clacton constituency, only about half of it does.
