If you're new to the Catholic blogosphere, there are yearly Catholic Blog Awards. To be candid, I'm not sure exactly how this works, since I started the blog in March 2006! But apparently you nominate deserving blogs in the following categories:
1. Best Overall Catholic BlogThen there are finalists, and winners....
2. Best Designed Catholic Blog
3. Best Written Catholic Blog
4. Best New Catholic Blog
5. Best Individual Catholic Blog
6. Best Group Blog
7. Best Blog by Clergy/Religious/Seminarian
8. Funniest Catholic Blog
9. Smartest Catholic Blog
10. Most Informative & Insightful Catholic Blog
11. Best Apologetic Blog
12. Best Political/Social Commentary Catholic Blog
13. Best Insider News Catholic Blog
14. Most Spiritual Blog
You could nominate starting this Feb 4th, Noon CST, and the nominating process is closed on Feb 9th at Noon, CST. This award contest is sponsored and carried out by CyberCatholics.com.
There are lots of talented writers out there; why don't you poke around the blogrolls, do some reading, and give some a nomination? This seems like a nice way to give them some appreciation: a "day in the LCD glare."
