2010 Cliopatria Award Nominations: Best Group Blog
Look for the announcement of the winners in January at Cliopatria
Please submit, in comments below, your nominations for the best history group blog since 1 December 2009. [registration not required to post nominations, but the usual rules of civility and conduct still apply] Nominations will be accepted from November 1st through 30th.
Please include a URL for the blog you are nominating, as well as the name of the blog. You may nominate as many blogs as you wish in this category, and you may nominate individual blogs or bloggers or posts in other categories as well.
Bloggers do not need to be academic historians. If you're not sure whether a blog or blogger qualifies as"history," nominate them anyway and the judges will make a final determination. If you have questions, feel free to contact Ralph Luker or leave a comment here.
Judging Committee: Jonathan Dresner (Chair), Joseph Adelman, Lucy Inglis.
[Judges are ineligible to win awards they are judging, but feel free to nominate them for something else!]

I am guessing that a blog by two writers would count for best group blog, and so I am nominating "The Two Nerdy History Girls." It may not be as deep as some of the other nominations, but these two ladies come up with wonderful daily history briefs with great pictures that I look forward to reading every morning.

The blog focuses on connecting historical research with our understanding of the present and has a large number of contributers, mostly in the "new scholars" category.
