It looks like voting for Round 1 of the Canadian Blog Awards is now open. Since I've never been ashamed to say which blogs I like and why, I'm going to shameless endorse the options I like.
Best Blog: I was going to say Calgary Grit, but he/she has already received a few awards already. So I'm going with A BCer in Toronto, who I think brings good insights and original content to the table.
Best Conservative Blog: Not an awful lot of blogs in this section, is there? Personally, I like to read The Big Mac Political Hack Attack: Chaos in Canada, a blogger that is well rooted in Red Toryism and always has something interesting to say.
Best Progressive Blog: Don't even bother voting for me in this section; I'm just not worthy. Who is worthy is Idealistic Pragmatist, who is very good at creating well thought out, long blog posts.
Best New Blog: I like this guy a lot, but he is a shameless self-promoter. The Big Mac Political Hack Attack and Giant Political Mouse are good too.

Best Religious Blog: I find Jesus Drives an SUV has a very interesting discussion on many religious subjects. It is also very funny.

Best Blog Post: Idealistic Pragmatist's Jack Layton's sinister mind control experiment. You know that a blog post is good when you post a link to it during some sort of argument because it sums up your case better than you can. And I've linked to it a lot.
