I would like to nominate yours truly:
I was blogging over at 50th Star prior to your cut-off date. But The Dougout is not even a month old yet.

Deserves two awards, because it's just that good. If any other blog can match BibliOdyssey's regular delivery of PRIMARY SOURCE cornucopiae, please post a link in a follow-up comment.

More of a literary historian like the Little Professor, but still worthy of nomination.

Started 11/Dec/2004. Not an out and out history blog, but there's plenty of historical interest on it. See the left hand bar for a list of WWII and Holocaust posts. An excellent example of the wide variety of people who history blog.
