No offense, Jeff. That's what you get for being too damn good.

Can I nominate myself for NEW KID ON THE BLOCK? A Sojourn in St. Louis
sojournstlouis@blogspot.com

for RELIGIOUS WHO IS NOT FR. Z: Sister Mary Martha

for VISUAL TREAT: Shrine of the Holy Whapping
holywhapping.blogspot.com

for BATSHIT CRAZY - Catholic Rage Monkey ragemonkey.blogspot.com

Jane said...

I think the Shrine of the Holy Whapping is also too big, and too-much decorated, to qualify.

I second the nomination of The Catholic Illustrators' Guild for "Visual Treat."

I nominate Art and Adventure for the "Susan Boyle Award": http://letflythecannons.blogspot.com/
(He has original drawings, 20-sided dice, a chicken wearing a sweater and a space gypsy. That's a lot of talent and character.)

(Professor hat on)
Shouldn't the first category be "Best Blog by a Religious Who's Not Fr. Z" rather than whose?
(/Professor hat)

Mark Scott Abeln said...

Whatever anyone does, DO NOT vote for my blog, "Rome of the West", in the "Visual Treat" category; vote for The Crescat instead! I don't want Carolina Cannonball to get mad at me!

Also, I am not worthy for votes in the "Spiritual Treat" category.

If you vote for me.... I will promise more visual treats that will send you RUSHING to confession-because that is the way I roll. It is the Catholic Confession Roll.

I agree with Ironic Caatholic - Stella Borealis is terribly under appreciated.

A few corrections:
Fr. Longenecker's blog is called Standing On My Head, not Looking Upside Down.

Fr. Farfaglia's blog is called Illegitimi non Carborundum. (You have it listed as Do not be discouraged, which is the URL.)

Adoro said...

I appreciate the nomination but think you should take my name from the list. The only category I'm listed under really isn't proper and I'd rather let votes go to those who do truly match the category.

I still haven't made my nominations, still intend to do so.

LOVE your award, but if you'll let me, I withdraw from consideration.

Thanks.

Wow, all the blogs I read have already been nominated. I guess I've got to expand my horizons a little, stray from the "big names."

But I'd like to nominate "Conversion Diary" (http://www.conversiondiary.com/) for "Best Spiritual Treat."

Carolina Cannonball said...

AUGH!

Please don't make this harder for me. Provide the blog title and link.

And if you notice some one else has already made the nomination you were going to submit don't post it.

And don't repeat the same nominations over & over & over again.

Hugs & kisses.

... and you do know that only nominations are being taken. No voting... not yet. Patience please.

Snuggles and snoggins.
