The nominations for the Indibloggies have been announced. You might baulk at the number of nominees in some categories, but on the whole I think it’s a stronger, more satisfying list than last year’s. As a one-time humanitarian I’m especially pleased to see so many strong contenders in the Humanities category this time, though it’s a personal disappointment that Alok’s blog didn’t make it to the final list – especially since he writes about books and films you won’t see discussed anywhere else in the Indian blogosphere.
Public polling begins tomorrow, check the site for details.
(Meanwhile, may I also direct you to the recently announced Indifloggies, which invites nominations for sites run by incestuous male bloggers in such categories as “Blogger most likely to not have interacted with the female of the species ever, except for his mother” and “Dukhi atma of the year”. I think I have a 40 per cent chance of being nominated for both.)
