As has been noted in just about every blog in the blogiverse, the Third Annual Bloggies are accepting nominations.
I took a little while this morning and filled out my lineup card. It was actually quite tough! I am not going to mention for whom I voted in the catch-all categories like “Blog of the Year” or “Best Galapagos Island Blog.” However, there are a couple of categories for which the obvious candidates just leap out and grab you.

I’m sorry, but insane projects R us.
They didn’t have enough slots for my nominees in the other categories. There are too many to highlight. So, I’ll just leave you to your own tough decisions there. However, there is one category that I would like to highlight some more:

While, of course, the greatest bit of insanity that spread through the blogiverse was gathering minions, I’d like to hear what some people think are the others–even if just to be reminded of the fun things we do to waste time. Was it Carnival of the Vanities? Monday Mission? Banned Books Project? Zilla-fied everything? Boobies? Toss out some
