The Cliopatria Awards
Nominations for The Cliopatria Awards, 2007, in history blogging will open tomorrow, Thursday 1 November. They will remain open through the month. You'll be invited to submit nominations for the Best Individual Blog, Best Group Blog, Best New Blog, Best Post, Best Series of Posts, and Best Writer. Here are the winners for 2005 and 2006. The time-frame for this year's Awards is 1 December 2006 through 30 November 2007. Both Cliopatria's History Blogroll and the various history carnivals (Asian History Carnival, Biblical Studies Carnival, Carnival of Bad History, Carnivalesque, History Carnival, and Military History Carnival) are excellent sources of reference for nominations. Be sure to include both a title or name and a live link for nominations. The judges are already overworked and they'll be making their decisions during December's runup to the holiday season. The decisions will be announced in early January at the AHA convention and, shortly thereafter, here at Cliopatria.
