For the Love of Blogs

By July 6, 2009

In the hallowed and oft-visited bloggernacle, not all blogs are equal, or so Mormon Matters’ Niblet Nominations 2008 tell us.

So, please, make your adoration for JI known to the world and more importantly to the one true Blogmaster. No pressure. Just vote!

  3. Jared T., I nominated your coverage of the 30th anniversary commemoration for best current events post. I really appreciate all your efforts to transcribe important happenings for those of us not able to be there.

    But alas, I also nominated the apparently unworthy Myregisblog.com for “all the fun and laughs” or something silly like that.

  4. No need to confess past sins, Hunter :)

    I appreciate your nomination and I’m sure I’d speak for my cobloggers in saying that we appreciate your readership and support.
