The 2005 Cliopatria Awards Nominations:
BEST GROUP BLOG
NOMINATIONS ARE CLOSED
Please submit, in comments below, your nominations for the best group blog (other than Cliopatria) by historians or about history. [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(s). You many nominate as many blogs as you wish in this category, and you may nominate individual posts or bloggers 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 the chair of the committee:
Judging Committee: Sharon Howard (chair), Another Damned Medievalist, Tim Burke. [Judges are ineligible to win awards they are judging, but feel free to nominate them for something else!]

Ok, here's a difficult one. Múlt-kor http://www.mult-kor.hu/ is web-site / journal put together by Hungarian historians.
I'm going to be biased because they included a story "A csillagok jelezték Delphoi szertartásait" (http://www.mult-kor.hu/cikk.php?article=10746). However there's a wide range of stuff on site, and there's clearly a lot of making it look beautiful. Here's what could have been a very dull-looking article on Pinochet. http://www.mult-kor.hu/cikk.php?article=11652
I see two problems. One is whether or not it's a weblog. There are weblog elements including a journal but is that enough for it to be a blog.
The other is this whole not-in-English thing. An academic historian who ruled out sources simply because they weren't in English might have a bit of trouble, but what about a blogging historian? This raises questions about audience that I can't answer.
