I’m not entirely sure how this happened, though it may have had something to do with the hundred-dollar bill I stapled to the application form, but e.politics has been chosen as one of three finalists in the “Best Blog National Politics” category for this year’s Golden Dot awards, to be given out next week at the Politics Online conference. Wow, very cool! Thanks, y’all! I’m just tickled pink, particularly since the idea of doing this site first started brewing at LAST year’s Politics Online. The category contains an interesting mix, with one group-blog/wiki from the Daily Kos community joining e.pol, which I would consider a practitioner’s site, and Extreme Mortman, a political opinion site. Keep your fingers crossed!
