Winners logo's and HTML code will be available here Tuesday. The poll page will remain in place so you may continue to link to it and the results. The content of this post will be copied into the header section of the poll page as well.

Thanks to everyone who participated, those who have sent well wishes, and especially Michele, Cheyenne, and the King for their assistance.

I'll try to recap the though process behind the design and operation of the awards at some point in the next few days. The participation in terms of nominations and voting has been amazing. There were lessons learned along the way that will make next years Weblog Awards even better.

I think most people liked the idea of competing against sites from the same TTLB Ecosystem level, but I think for next year we are going to need some better "awards show" names for those categories. I'm open to suggestions...

Thanks again

Methinks you need to audit how the nominees are vetted, because Michael Totten is a "liberal" the same way miniature golf is a "sport". Hell, even he admits to being the blog equivalent of Alan Colmes:

(Here's one of his statements from Dec. 14th.)
"Hey, T-bogg. I know you hate me because I left the left. But you're part of the reason I left the left. I used to miss it, but comments like yours make me feel a whole lot better about my decision.

Posted by Michael at 01:18 PM"

Don't let the "Little Green F*ckballs" hijack your polls.
