    Justin Higgins, The Ohio State University. Wow. ‘Shots on the House’ is informative, and sleek. It looks good and is the least cluttered blog I’ve ever visited, yet with the most information available, at one glance I have ever seen. I visit blogs that are nationally known, and while I enjoy them, this one BY FAR exceeds them in style and layout, and is at least as competetive for content. I will be visting regular now that I have found it.

    Justin Higgins, as screwed up as our media is, our future for news is in talented and bright people like you!

    argh, better luck next time I suppose. Yay to all the great blogs up there, though!

    There appears to be no diversity amongst this bunch. Each blog features long paragraphs worth of political opinions. Yawn. Who were the judges and what made them consider these blogs over the rest? I think it would be interesting to see ALL the blogs who entered this competition.

    This is not my blog, however looking at some of the blogs and this one i have been following it dwarfs some that are listed. It definitely deserves recognition.

    How did Justin Varner get nominated? I just read that guys blog and, I quote, said, “I just wasted 10 minutes of my life…”

    By Dustin on November 8th, 2008

    Boy, no pun intended, is blogging that “male” an avocation?

    By Ray from MN on November 9th, 2008
