There’s a fascinating variety of blogs in this year’s finalists. Check ’em out! You may find a new favorite blog.

UPDATE (James Joyner):  Some excellent competition, albeit some odd pairings.  Not only does InstaPundit get geometrically more traffic than OTB but the current runaway leader is a mommy blog of which I’d never before heard.

  1. James Joyner says:

    Congrats, Dave: Two nominations!

    “Major Blogs” is a wide swath, indeed, if OTB is in there with InstaPundit and at least three blogs I’ve never heard of.

  2. James Joyner says:

    More amusing: c jane enjoy it, of which I’d never previously heard, is running away with it.

  3. Dave Schuler says:

    My impression of the finalists this year is that they’re a little more representative of the true range of the blogosphere than in prior years. Fewer political blogs, more from the rest of the blogosphere.
