Sunday's Blog of The Week

Several of the folks on the sidebar as "Blogs I Read" or on one of the blog rolls are finalist in the 2006 Weblog Awards. These are fine folks with good blogs that deserve your consideration and vote:

In the category "Best New Blog" we have Texas Fred's.

  • Fred's blog is a daily commentary on news and politics. We may not always agree with each other, but differing thoughts is what keeps things interesting.

In the category "Best Individual Blog" we have Blue Star Chronicles.

  • Beth is a wife and mother in a Blue Star Family commenting on life, news and daily events. You can be sure to always find something of interest in the Blue Star Chronicles.

In the category "Best of the Top 250 Blogs" sits Castle Argghhh!!!.

  • You should vote for this blog just because they have a cool name. The Castle is a military blog staffed by several retired warriors commenting on the military, past and present. As one reader puts it "Argghhh!! is a bit more casual, like I imagine a friendly local pub. But a thematic pub, mostly related to the military, old and new. (Duh)"

In the category "Best of the Top 251 to 500 Blogs" is Jarhead's Firing Range.

  • John is a Gunny Sargent stationed on Okinawa. John tells it the way he sees it. Politics, news and general commentary. The range is always hot at John's place.

In the category "Best of the Top 501 to 1000 Blogs" we have Radioactive Liberty.

  • This site is new to me and to tell you the truth, I have not quite gotten the Monger Horde figured out yet. It is an interesting site where metaphor and irony are used to very good effect.

In the category "Best of the Top 1001 - 1750 Blogs" we find Scottish Right.

  • Joe is a well read and articulate commentator on world and domestic politics. This mornings commentary on Senator Brownback has given me pause, I have some investigating to do and emails to send off.

In the category "Best of the Top 2501 - 3500 Blogs" is mAss Backwards.

  • Bruce is a fellow gun blogger living in the heart of darkness (Kennedy Country). Massachusetts is right up there with the top anti-constitutional Jim Crowe style gun control law states in the country. Bruce is fighting the good fight against long odds.

And last but not least, in the category "Best of the Top 6751 - 8750 Blogs", is yours truly.

  • I appreciate all of the votes that have been cast to this point, and thank you in advance for taking a moment each day to continue voting for A Keyboard and a .45.

One of the mantras in sales is "To be successful, hang out with successful people". It looks like I am in good company. Take some time to look over these great blogs, then vote.

Remember that the voting continues until December 15th, and that you can vote once every 24 hours.

Despite your continued support of mAss Backwards, I still voted for a fellow submariner. So which boat(s) were you on?

Welcome to "A Keyboard and a .45" Joel. That is the good thing about these web awards, finding sites you may have missed otherwise.

I was on the USS Haddock, SSN-621.
