Campaign for Gender Balance Awards: best Lib Dem blog?

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

Last week I highlighted the nominations we’ve received so far for best non-Lib Dem blog  and best Lib Dem blog post.  While with those we’ve received a wide range of different nominations, the best Lib Dem blog category is much more competitive amongst relatively few nominees.  As such, rather than list every single one, I thought I would restrict this article to blogs that have received multiple nominations.

The nominations we receive for this category will be used for two shortlists: the judge’s choice and the people’s choice which will be put to a public vote.  As with the other categories, with the judge’s choice the three most popular blogs 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.  With the people’s choice, we will simply be shortlisting the five which received the most nominations.

Competition is likely to be intense, so make sure you nominate your favourite blog.  As we always say on polling day, don’t leave it for someone else to do – they may be leaving it to you!  And if your favourite isn’t listed here, it is doubly important you nominate it – the field is still very open.

Anyway, here are the seven most popular blogs thus far, in alphabetical order:

* Charlotte Gore
* Jo’s Jottings
* Lindyloo’s Muse
* Lynne’s Parliament and Haringey diary
* Mary Reid’s Blog
* Meral’s Musings
* The People’s Republic of Mortimer

Don’t forget, the nominations deadline is 1 February.  I’ll be announcing the shortlists here soon after that.
