Nominations - January's "Best Dramatic Post and Blogsite"

"Dramatic" posts and sites, as they apply to The Order, mean that serious subjects are addressed and the writing style reflects them in a serious manner..

Rules on the nomination for Dramatic / Serious Posts and sites:

1. Posts must be written between January 1st and January 31st.
2. Nominations can be made up to 11:59:59 PM (EDT) on January 31st.
3. Nominations will be placed in the comments, and added to the body of the post on a daily basis. If you would like to nominate in secrecy, then make and post the comment, and then delete it. It will show up in my email box and I will add it to the nomination post.
4. "Serious" and "Dramatic" refer to the subject matter.
5. Blogsites must have at least one January posting in order to qualify. Any site without a post in January should be nominated in the Historic category.
6. Each nominator can list up to three post and three blogsite nominations per category. You cannot nominate your own post or blogsite (but you can vote for yourself.)
7. Active links (or at least URLs) would be appreciated!!!

Remember - voting starts February 1st and ends February 5th at 11:59:59 EDT. I will not be able to count any votes received prior to February 1st, as the nomination period is still open.

As well, please note that I have opened up the nominations and voting to all visitors. I would ask that, if you are nominating or voting without an ID, that you sign your comment with an ID or pen name. This is especially important in the voting process. Since we have rules stating that you may vote three times per category, but only once per nominee, I will need to ask that we all remain the honorable persons that we are and sign our votes and nominations rather than posting them as 'anonymous' to avoid abuse of the system. I will also reserve the right during the voting process, if voters do not wish to sign anonymous votes with a pen name, to cap the number of 'anonymous' votes to three per nominee to avoid ballot-box stuffing. Sorry to do that, but if you truly want to vote and not leave your name in the public eye, you have the option of voting in the comment, signing it, and then deleting it. It goes directly to my email program and will not be visible to anyone but me. And I guarantee you it will be used for ballot counting purposes, only.

Thank you again for understanding.

Good luck, everyone!!! Let's contine find some great writing to share, and continue to expand our blogworld!

I nominate Lindsay's Lobes for this one - he is serious, intelligent and sometimes dramatic (from science to Malawi children).
