Campaign for Gender Balance Awards: best blog post?

The nominations deadline for the Campaign for Gender Blog Awards is 1 February, so you still have time to nominate your facvourites.

We’re particularly keen to hear your suggestions for the best blog post. Of the three categories, this is the one we have had the fewest nominations for, and while it is a less eclectic list than the best non-Lib Dem blog category it is still a very open contest. Nominations received so far are listed below.

Once again, the three most popular blog posts in terms of received nominations are guaranteed on the shortlist, with each member of the judges panel (myself, Ros Taylor, Ros Harper, Baroness Jane Bonham-Carter, Olly Grender and James Graham), allowed to add another entry of their own choice if they wish. So even if your favourite blog has already been nominated, nominating it yourself will still improve its chances of getting onto the shortlist.

We have received nominations for the following:

The People’s Veto and ID Cards from Caron’s Musings: contrasting the different views on ID cards between Nick Clegg and Chris Huhne, and criticising Chris Huhne’s idea for a People’s Veto.

We’ve had three nominations from the People’s Republic of Mortimer: I learnt a new word today; Terribly Boring I: The Keirsey Temperament Sorter and the theory of democracy; Fighting for crystal clear communication since 1979.

What should MPs look like? by Jo Christie-Smith summarises the recent debate in the Lib Dem blogosphere about gender equality.

Jo Hayes’ A book we should all read is her review of The Islamist by Ed Hussain.

Jo’s Jottings has two nominations so far: Campaign for Gender Balance, Jo Swinson and female bloggers and Campaign for Flexible Internships.

Three nominated posts from Lindyloo’s Muse: Clegg on Diversity – I will consider appointments process; If you can’t make your mind up – 10 reasons to vote for Nick Clegg; Simon Rules … OK?

Meral’s Musings has two nominated posts: I’m looking for the X-Factor?; and Labour plans to ‘force’ single mums back to work.

Clever Cleggs summarises Mary Reid’s interview with Nick Clegg during the leadership election.

Finally, Suzanne Fletcher’s moving post on 29 April 2007 about the Asylum Monologues was also nominated.

Once again, it’s still worth nominating your favourite post even if it is listed here as it will improve its chances of being shortlisted. And if your fave isn’t here, it’s doubly important that you nominate it!

Next up: the hotly contested best Lib Dem blog!

  • I have recently nominated Alix Mortimer’s “The Long Dark Questionnaire of the Soul” (October 6, 2007), which is well worth a look.
