As noted on Clawbies.ca this afternoon, the 2008 Canadian Law Blog Awards will once again be announced on New Year’s Eve.
This will be the third year of the awards, with this year’s edition adding a couple of new changes to the nomination process. First, we have opened up email nominations so bloggers, and friends of bloggers, can tell us why their blogs should be considered. The second available method, and clearly more intriguing, is nomination option #2. In option #2, we’re asking blog owners to nominate three other Canadian law blogs that they are currently reading, and why they were important in 2008.
The added wrinkle here, is that we’ve asked bloggers show their humble Canadian outlook, and mention nothing about their own blog. And in doing so, we’ve promised due attention to the nominator’s blog, their recommended peers, and are forcing some audience sharing & link-based infrastructure between members of the Canadian law blog community. It’s a win-win for everyone, right? ;)
Many thanks to Jordan Furlong at Law 21 for getting the process rolling this afternoon! If you write a law blog in Canada, or know someone who does, please consider taking part.
