Nominations and voting for Wampum’s 2005 Koufax Awards–for best of the blogosphere–are now open. The awards honor the best blogs and bloggers on the left side of the blogosphere. Nominations and voting are simply a matter of leaving a comment. (The initial thread has become too long, so Wampum has opened a new one, here.) The results are probably the result of how much traffic a blog can direct to Wampum.
We at 3quarksdaily have been nominated for best group blog and most deserving of wider recognition.
But I’d like to offer my own choices, which will probably be of no surpise to anyone who even cursorily follows me.
Best Blog: Majikthise
Best Pro Blog: Talking Points Memo
Best Blog Community: TPMCafe, Crooked Timber, or Pandagon, it’s a toss up for me.

Most Deserving of Wider Recognition: Three-Toed Sloth, Majikthise
