Top Blogs-Nomination Time.

Got five minutes to spare?

Then you have time to vote for your favourite blogger mates!

This, from Iain Dale's site:

"It's that time of year again, when Total Politics asks you to vote for your Top 10 favourite blogs. This is the fifth year of the poll. The votes will be compiled and included in the forthcoming book, the Total Politics Guide to Blogging 2010-11, which will be published in September. For the second year running, the poll is being promoted/sponsored by LabourList and LibDemVoice as well as this blog, and that of our publisher, Iain Dale.

The rules are simple.

1. You must vote for your ten favourite blogs and ranks them from 1 (your favourite) to 10 (your tenth favourite).
2. Your votes must be ranked from 1 to 10. Any votes which do not have rankings will not be counted.
3. You MUST include at least FIVE blogs in your list, but please list ten if you can. If you include fewer than five, your vote will not count.
4. Email your vote to toptenblogs@totalpolitics.com
5. Only vote once.
6. Only blogs based in the UK, run by UK residents or based on UK politics are eligible. No blog will be excluded from voting.
7. Anonymous votes left in the comments will not count. You must give a name
8. All votes must be received by midnight on 31 July 2010. Any votes received after that date will not count."

 Nominate your selection from my list if you like. I already have.

Has a year passed already CR, where does the time go eh.

I have some excellent choices and, of course, you are one of them but trying to rate them from one to ten will be very difficult as they are all top notch.

Keep up the good work CR, and that goes for the great bloggers that follow you.

Thanks John.

I have plenty of badges already so I am not soliciting votes for my blog.

As you say, there are others worthy of recognition.

Hell mate, I know you were not soliciting. It's a measure of your stature on the blogosphere that you ask us to nominate others...it's so refreshing in this me, me, me society we live in.

Captain Ranty said...


Or, it could be a sneaky bluff!

That's it! I'm doin' no more ass kissin', I'm all puckered out.

2010 Poll

Captain Ranty said...

Thanks Mark & Griblett.

I have changed the link.

Someone should alert Mrs Dale.


Corrugated Soundbite said...

Yeah, alright, go on then Captain ;-)

It's in the post, so to speak.

Captain Ranty said...

I nominated you as well CS!

It was a tough choice this year. So many good people blogging.


Corrugated Soundbite said...

Many thanks, CR.

I feel humbled, largely as my blog is largely a rant blog. I hope to change that. Not tonight, mind you ;-)
