Finalists for The 2008 Weblog Awards have been announced.
There were over 5,000 nomination for us to sort through and visit, and it was a very difficult task. When the process pushed the potential voting dates too close to Christmas we made the decision to hold off voting until after the New Year.
From all of the nominations we have selected nearly 500 finalists in 48 categories. The full list of finalists is here:
Finalist badges will be available Wednesday. Voting is scheduled to begin January 5.
