Hhmmm, dont know about this, counted two blogs that I actually visted on a regular, there is at least one blog in each catagory that really shouldnt be in the catagory.

And some I never heard of, but thats not bad, just because I dont read them.

Any of them on your Afrospear list?

Mike - Truth to tell, I was disappointed in the finalists. I posted my nominees earlier this month and you'll see that very few of my nominees appear as finalists. The upside is that over half of the finalists were not previously being tracked on the Black Blog Rankings ... so that is a good thing.

I think that there are 5-6 AfroSpear members listed as finalists...

Hi Villager!

Black Women in Europe, Field Negro, Jack and Jill Politics, The Black Snob, Pam's House Blend, and What Would Thembi Do? are all Afrospear member blogs nominated for awards this year. Last year's finalist list introduced me to a few great blogs that I didn't previously read, and I think this year will be no different!

Thembi - Congrats on your status as a 2008 BWA Finalist! I'm going to note the BWA Finalist in the Sept 2008 Black Blog Rankings when they come out in a couple of weeks. I must sheepishly admit that I haven't been to your blog in awhile. I'm hearing over there today...

Lisa - I encourage all members of the AfroSpear to include the full list on their blogs as well. Let's get behind this demonstration of 'kujichagulia' (self-responsibility) from the brothers and sisters that create and sustain the annual Black Weblog Awards...

Angella said...

Congrats to everyone that made the lists. Hopefully next year during this time with my site's re-launch I might make it too.

Urban Scientist - wishing the best for all AfroSpear bloggers in this annual contest!!

Angella - How would you complete this sentence? 'After looking at my blog, I want my readers to ________________'...

Black Women in Europe said...

Congrat to my fellow nominees with a special shout out to my AfroSpear kin.

Villager, I'm disappointed you are not on the list.

Thanks for including us in next months' Top Black Blogs listing.

Adrianne - I hope that you & the other AfroSpear bloggers that are in Denver this week have opportunity to take group photo! I would love to see that photo and post it on all of our blogs. Anyhow, I will be casting my vote for your blog in the 2008 BWA process...
