Slugger Awards: Best Political Blog 2009…

It’s our view that the real nexus of political debate is moving inexorably online. In the US and the UK, the line between what’s become known as the commentariat and the bloggertariat is rapidly blurring. We hope our political blogger of the year Award will play a role in identifying (and encouraging) the next generation of big political commentators.Anyone who blogs consistently on Northern Irish politics is eligible: ie they do not have to be based in or be writing exclusively about Northern Ireland. But we are looking for seriousness and purpose. And for blogs that bring consistent quality and impact on the public debate.

In making your nominations, please try to include:

1. The name and the url of the blog.
2. A link to a sample post along with a short extract demonstrating its best qualities.
3. A short pitch on why you believe it is the best political blog of the year.

Be as expansive as you wish, so we can make the best pitch possible to both the reader and judges panels who may not be as familiar as you with your favoured site.

Please note, Slugger is excluded from this category.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
