Best Culture Blog

Nominate your choice for Best Culture Blog. Culture being somewhat in the eye of the beholder, we're looking a wide cross-section of blogs on popular culture topics.

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 your comment will not be published immediately.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.

Pop culture commentary, with a side order of snarkyness at PopVulture

It's that time of year again. How exciting.

I had such great fun with these awards last year that I'd like to nominate Harpymarx for a powerful blend of politics and art including insightful reviews:


And my own blog:
Madam Miaow Says

Gallery of Art, superb high res art of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Nerdabout-art, tech, and all that's nerdy in-between

I nominate Barataria:

Thoughtful and challenging 3 times a week. A strong half-step back from the noise of the regular media.

I would add it's eclectic and intelligent.

Barataria is a must-read for anyone who has started to wonder if our world is coming apart at the seams or what. It's intelligent and full of unique insight and perspective.

Even if you're not a mom, this is a GREAT cultural site. Blogger Barbara Curtis is a former hippie and leftist who is now an extremely insightful conservative. Mother of twelve and author of several books, including Reaching the Left from the Right: Talking About Social Issues with People Who Don't Think Like You, , Barbara has a very winning personality. Her keen social insights are always delivered with compassion and understanding. And of course, she has great parenting advice and wonderful anecdotes from her experiences raising twelve completely different personalities. Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, whether writing about family dilemmas or big social/political/cultural issues, she always writes with great heart, good humor and a gentle spirit.

Given the impact this blog has had on me, I nominate: The Thinker

Dedicated 5-days a week to matters of Political Correctness, Immigration, Our Founding Fathers, Constitutional Issues, and Scripture

Ibn Ibn Battuta - notes on cross-cultural interactions from around the world!

Bridges and Tangents
Looking across the landscape of contemporary culture - at the arts, science, religion, politics, philosophy.

i nominate:

It's written by a guy who writes for 'the skinny' in Scotland. Political / Cultural stuff. Worth checking out.
