Decide the Top 100 UK Political Blogs
Iain Dale's new venture http://www.totalpolitics.com/ is publishing the 2008-9 Guide to Political Blogging in the UK.
As last year this will list the Top 100 UK Political Blogs.
Because, with a few notable exceptions like my good self, many Labour folk are too busy in government bringing democratic socialism to a grateful nation (well, 28% of the nation is grateful according to ICM, up 3%!) to write or read blogs, this list is usually dominated by Tory blogs.
If you are a Labour supporter and enjoy reading Labour supporting blogs, please do vote for them to get them into the list and thus draw them to the attention of a wider potential readership.
Simply email your Top Ten (ranked from 1 to 10) to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have a blog, please encourage your readers to do the same. The famously non-partisan Mr Dale will then compile the Top 100 from those that you send in. Just order them from 1 to 10. Your top blog gets 10 points and your tenth gets 1 point.The deadline for submitting your Top 10 is Friday August 15th. Please type Top 10 in the subject line. Once all the entries are in a lucky dip draw will take place and the winner will be sent £100 worth of political books!
The rules are:
1. Please only vote once
2. Only blogs based in the UK, run by UK residents are eligible or based on UK politics are eligible
3. Votes must be cast before Friday 15 August
4. Blogs chosen must be listed in the Total Politics Blog Directory.
5. You must send a list of TEN blogs, ranked. Any entry containing fewer than ten blogs will not count.
6. Anonymous votes left in the comments will not count. You must give a name.
