Catholic Blog Awards 2008!

Catholic Blog Awards 2008! Nomination's are now open go and nominate your favorite blogs. It was much harder for me to pick this year. In part my blog reading had been reduced to about a quarter of what it was when I was off work. So with that being said here are my pick's this year are:

A Catholic Mom Climbing the Pillars Great look and feel, nice design and layout.

My last year's Nominations are poster
here and the winners last year are here. There are a number of missed voices this year. a lot of blogs I miss reading that have gone dormant, or been pulled by the author. Jeff Vehige can still be found at Thursday Night Gumbo but I miss his theological blog and his science fiction one, I've had to watch 3 of his blogs go the way of the dodo. Rosary Knight who wrote at Souther Catholic, disappeared also. Catholic Rage Monkey and others are just to name a few of the blogs that have said goodbye this year. This years crop for the blog awards might be less because of the voices that went silent this past year. But enough with the mourning, go and nominate your favorite blogs and vote when the time comes.
