Voting for the 2008 Weblog Awards has just commenced, and this blog is a finalist. If you’ve followed this blog for all these many years, here is an opportunity give a vote of confidence. And if you’ve had enough of Juan Cole (another finalist), this is your chance to register your protest vote! Take a couple of seconds, click here, and select “Martin Kramer on the Middle East” (or another blog—it’s a free country). You can vote once every 24 hours through January 13, so make it a habit. Many thanks!
