2006 Cliopatria Awards Nominations: BEST GROUP BLOG
Look for the winners in January!
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: Rob MacDougall (chair), Caleb McDaniel, Miriam Burstein. [Judges are ineligible to win awards they are judging, but feel free to nominate them for something else!]

There's a couple of others I like, but they're already here.

Nonpartisan - 11/8/2006
For some reason the previous nomination doesn't show up in my browser with an attribution. It was written by me, Nonpartisan.
I'd like to nominate ProgressiveHistorians, a new community site dedicated to the intersection of history and politics. Our site has three main goals:
-To promote the application of history to the study of current events;
-To encourage bolder, more decisive statements on the state of today's world on the part of academic historians; and
-To draw non-academics into the historical debate.
Come check us out at http://www.progressivehistorians.com!

It's been nominated under "Best Individual Blog" but it actually qualifies here, now that Sepoy has been joined by other contributors.

The Long 18th was set up during the summer ago with the aim of creating a venue for 18th-century studies scholars to discuss their ideas and the state of the field. It's already hosted one successful book event and there are regular postings on issues relating to teaching and research in the period.

The Megalithic Portal is right on the edge of history I'll admit, it's built around prehistoric sites, but it is an excellent example of a group blog that works so much better than a group of individuals and the subject matter is frequently historical as well as archaeological.
