Best Australia or New Zealand Blog

Nominate your choice for the best Australian or New Zealand blog.

Update: Nominations are closed for all categories. Finalist will be announced the last week of December and voting will begins Jan. 4, 2010.


To nominate a blog you need to leave a comment on this entry. Your comment should contain the name of the blog, the main URL for the blog, and (if possible) the URL for a RSS/Atom feed. For example:


Unless you login via one of the supported authentication services (Facebook, Twitter, Google, Typekey, WordPress, OpenID, Yahoo, AIM, etc.) your comment will not be published immediately. Unauthenticated comments are placed in a moderation queue. Due to the volume of comments, it may take up to 24 hours for your comment to be approved. Comments from authenticated users will be published immediately.

Every so often our spam fighting service flags an authenticated comment as spam. If you put more than 5 URL's in a comment it will set off the junk filter. If your comment doesn't immediately appear that's probably what happened. We review and "unjunk" these comments as we are approving unauthenticated comments. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

Rules And FAQ's

  • You can nominate yourself, don't be shy.
  • The number of nominations a blog receives is irrelevant. One nomination is enough...
  • Rather than add a "me too" (i.e. multiple) nomination for a site in a category, please use the "+" icon to indicate your preference for nominees. The "+" ratings are one extra piece of information the finalist selection panel can use to help generate the finalist slates in each category.
  • Given the two previous items, we reserve the right to remove excessive comments (i.e. nominations) for the same site.
  • The nomination period is scheduled to end on Sunday, November 22, 2009, though we reserve the option to close nominations earlier or later.
  • Voting for selected finalists is scheduled to begin January 4, 2010. Finalists will be announced the week before voting begins.
  • Read The Nomination FAQ
  • Get Weblog Award logos to post on your site. Link to the nomination index or your favored category
  • Get technical help or ask questions at The Weblog Awards Discussion Forum on Facebook.
  • If you are linking to the contest consider using the nomination category archive, as it contains links to all of the nomination posts.

Andrew Bolt blog

The overwhelming popularity of this blog is a testament to the energy Andrew Bolt puts into it, and topicality of the issues addressed, the opportunity for everyone to have their say without censorship, and the evidence based logic, reasoning and humanity behind much of what is written.

Oz's best political and current affairs blog, by far!

I nominate Andrew Bolt - best blog in Australia by a country mile!

John Birmingham

The author of books including "He Died With a Falafel in His Hand" writes an entertaining blog. He brings his literary skills to a broad range of topics.

He has two blogs:

Andrew Bolt's blog. Calling spade a spade, doing his research more thoroughly than most journalists, and above all - more common sense than vast majority of them. Thank you, Andrew.

Thank you,


Andrew Bolt's blog - far and away the biggest and best in Australia

No to Andrew Bolt blog.
As a discussion forum it gives the impression of either being biased or overwhelmed with the work required to promote timely and heated debates.
4 comments the other day unpublished with the discussion page updated with a 2 hour delay. My 4 posts were within this 2 hour window. 5th comment asking why the previous 4 had been ignored, was annoyingly published.
Not a quality blog even if the discussion materials are current and likely to be contentious in nature.

Andrew Bolt has the best blog by far...

I nominate Tim Blair.

Throughout his various iterations Tim maintained his journalistic integrity and a wicked sense of fun. And by journalistic integrity I mean that he has a respect for facts and often makes fun of overblown primadonnas of the news profession who fancy that they are the 'news'.
