In order to recognize the excellent work some of our fellow bloggers have been doing, RWN has put together the “6th Annual Right Wing News Conservative Blog Awards*”. More than 240 bloggers were invited to vote for their favorite blog in numerous categories and 45 responded.
Here were the rules of the contest:
1) For every category except “The Best Blog Overall,” each judge was allowed to make 1-5 unranked selections. The winner of each category was the blog with the most votes.
In “The Best Blog Overall” category, the judges made 1-15 unranked selections. Rank in that category was also based on the number of votes received.
The winner of each category is presented below with their total number of votes in parentheses beside of them.
2) The judges were not allowed to vote for their own blogs, blogs run by family members, or Right Wing News since I’m sponsoring the contest.
Before the results are presented, here’s a list of the judges. RWN appreciates their participation…

The Best Of The Blogosphere (The Precursor To The Warblogger Awards)
* The name was changed from the “Warblogger Awards” to the “Right Wing News Conservative Blog Awards” this year. That’s because the term “warblogger” used to be regularly applied to conservative bloggers, but has in recent years fallen out of favor. Since the term “warblogger” is so seldom used these days, it was causing some confusion, because some people seemed to associate it with military bloggers. Because of that, it seemed like a good idea to change the name of the awards.
