Weblog Awards Winner!

I wanted to wait a day for all of the polls to officially close before posting about the results of the 2004 Weblog Awards. Kevin has finalized the polling and Captain's Quarters won for Best Conservative Blog, taking an amazing 36% of the overall vote for the category. My colleagues at Power Line won the award for Best Overall Blog in what turned out to be a squeaker. Having worked with all three Power Line gentlemen now, I can only say that the voters knew what they were doing in that competition, although many fine blogs were featured.

You can see the entire list at the above link, but I wanted to note a few other results. In my category, I had the misfortune of being squared off against some fine bloggers, including LaShawn Barber, who traded notes with me during the contest. I'm a big fan of VodkaPundit, who came in second, and Right Thinking and Ann Althouse. Be sure to check them out.

I have another category in which I can claim a small part of a victory. The group blog Oh, That Liberal Media, in which I too-infrequently contribute, won for the Best of the Top 500-1500 Blogs category. That win really goes to Patterico, XRLQ, and the rest of the gang there. Speaking of Patterico, he won his own category, Best of the Top 100-250 blogs. Congratulations!

If you haven't had the chance yet, be sure to check out all of the results and discover a few new blogs at the same time. Big thanks to Kevin Aylward for putting together such a fun contest!
