Last year Grits for Breakfast was thrilled to share the award for Best Single Issue Blog with the estimable Talk Left, one of the blogosphere's big guns and best daily reads. This year Grits has been nominated again for Best Single Issue Blog and in a new category, Best State or Local Blog. Competition is stiff in both areas, but I'd appreciate your support.
You can only vote once and for one blog in each category. The current round of voting picks finalists for the awards. After the field has been narrowed, there will be one more round to choose the winners.
Voting is easy: Just leave a comment that says "Grits for Breakfast" here for Best Single Issue blog and here for Best State and Local. (Scroll to the bottom to post and be patient - the pages seem to be taking a while to load.) Or if you'd like your ballot to be secret, e-mail Dwight or Mary Beth with your vote - be sure to tell them which categories you're voting in.
Texas was well-represented among bloggers honored with nominations in Best State and Local Blog including Burnt Orange Report, Dos Centavos, In the Pink Texas, The Jeffersonian, Off the Kuff, The People's Republic of Seabrook, Pink Dome, the Red State, Texas Civil Rights Review, and Yellow Doggerel Democrat. I also notice that Pete at Drug War Rant garnered a nomination for Best Single Issue Blog. Congrats and good luck to all, though of course y'all know who you're supposed to vote for!
