Time to Spread the Award

billiante weblog premio 2008
Thanks to Christopher at From the Left for choosing mine as one of his seven blogs to give out the Brillante Weblog Award. His blog is a great source for news on the political campaigns and the views of Obama supporters. It also is a great place to vent when frustrated by the obnoxiousness of the right.

I accept this most awesome award

The rules for this award are as follows:

(1) Put the logo on your blog

(2) Add a link to the person who awarded you

(3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs

(4) Add links to those blogs on yours

(5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.

I hereby nominate the following 7 blogs for their excellence and commitment to blogging:

Some Notes on Living:
A collective effort of transgender bloggers, Some Notes on Living has excellent analysis and information on trans issues, other queer issues, and the world in general.

Ten Percent:
This site from the UK has insight, analysis, and righteous outrage at injustice from a non-sectarian, anti-capitalist perspective. In other words, you will be exposed to news and views that get zero play in the corporate media of the US.

Queeristan:
This is a blog by queer South Asians (desis) who provide you an opportunity to learn about queer life in South Asia and queer immigrant life. Unless you are very lucky and well informed, you will get perspectives that are completely unavailable in most US media, queer or non-queer. The writing is quite lively too.

Granny Peace Brigade:
Not all blogs are about sitting in front of keyboards. The Grannies give you insight into what actual street activism is like while promoting their pro-peace point of view. They inspire me to get off my ass.

GDAEman:
This blog deserves a lot more attention. The insights and analysis on GDAEman give real substance to progressive concerns and frustrations.

Marylyn's Non-Violent Planet News Page:
Non-violence certainly deserves a better hearing than it is getting these days. Marylyn's blog helps to address. She deserves special credit for persevering with grace in spite of harassment from gun nut trolls.

Pagan Sphinx:
Arts and politics don't always mix well on blogs, but they do quite well here. Her action orientation is refreshing, compared to a blogosphere where action often gets left out of the analysis.

Gail's Tails:
The voices of Greens don't get much attention in our society, and that is a shame because they have a lot of important things to say. Gail's Tails says those things quite well. While the corporate media tries to keep you from knowing anything about Cynthia McKinney's presidential campaign, this blog will let you know why people are supporting the only woman presidential candidate and one of only two liberals running (the other being Ralph Nader).

Atheist Revolution:
Want to know more about atheist perspectives and atheist activism? This is the best blog I've seen to go as a starting place. It also gives people who are atheists excellent information and online activism opportunities.

To be honest, I couldn't be bothered to go through the painfully difficult task of trying to figure out which of these blogs are better. So, the order presented has no meaning whatsoever.

Ordinarily I avoid anything remotely memish, but this is a great way for people to publicize excellent liberal to progressive blogs. I'm hoping this will do a lot to promote community building among left of center bloggers.

Another blog I would have listed, if I hadn't seen that it already got this award is Dusty's.

  6. This is really cool. Thanks so much.

    I'm printing this and putting it on the refrigerator. (although I'll have make room by taking down the 2003 "Not in Our Name" signature ad...) :)

    Power to the People!

  10. Thank you so much GLH , its been a amazing watching you and Christopher be so dedicated to covering the issues so consistently. Thank you for this lovely award !!!

    How kind of you to think of our blog. I have been really slacking off these days..but staying tuned in for sure.

    FWIW i personally am feeling very well - dispite soaking in fascism. For the moment. IF horror should occur in Nov. UGH ! - I remain very focused mostly on trying to educate the glbTq community about the T and seek an inclusive ENDA. Been reading books, forums..my blogging well the minute i say this , i always pick it up - but i sure have been doing other things besides blogging..but winter is coming..more time for it ANYHOW - thank you..Where would we be without the blogs..

    It is an important form of activism and communication.

    I am honored..buddy.
