The finalists for the Weblog Awards are out and there are some locals on the various lists you can spend a fair amount of time voting for. Go vote for 'em today (voting's open until Dec. 15):
Best new blog: Jules Crittenden
Best conservative blog: Ace of Spades
Best media blog: Pundit Review
Best of the Top 250 Blogs: Sisu

Time for a Best of Boston Bloggers award? Anybody interested in working on setting something like that up? If so, let me know (or let me know if you think that'd be ridiculously elitist or whatever).
