In order to recognize the excellent work some of our fellow bloggers have been doing, John Hawkins of Right Wing News has put together the “8th Annual Right Wing News Conservative Blog Awards.” More than 250 bloggers were invited to vote for their favorite blog in numerous categories and 49 responded (including me).

Here were the rules of the contest:

1) For every category except “The Best Blog Overall,” each judge was allowed to make 1-5 unranked selections. The winner of each category was the blog with the most votes.

In “The Best Blog Overall” category, the judges made 1-15 unranked selections. Rank in that category was also based on the number of votes received.

The winners of each category are presented below with their total number of votes in parentheses beside of them.

2) The judges were not allowed to vote for themselves or any Website that John Hawkins writes for (Because John is the guy counting the votes).

The Judges were some of the Most Famous blogs and bloggers along with sites that you man not be familiar with, such as: Ace of Spades HQ, David All Group, Argghhhh!, Atlas Shrugs, Blackfive, Bookworm Room, Lorie Byrd, Gina Cobb, Cara Ellison, Copious Dissent, Daily Uprising, Dodgeblogium, Ed Driscoll, Katie Favazza, GraniteGrok, IMAO, Infidels Are Cool, JammieWearingFool, The Jawa Report, Jihad Watch, Legal Insurrection, Libertarian Republican, Little Miss Attila, Mean Ol’ Meany , Moe Lane, Moonbattery, Mount Virtus, mountaineer musings, Nice Deb, No Oil For Pacifists, The Nose On Your Face, Patriot Room, Pursuing, Outside The Beltway, Pirates Man Your Women!, Russ.
