As followers of Blawg Review know, this project has an annual award that recognizes the best Blawg Review of the Year. The competition is open to all law blogs that have hosted Blawg Review in the previous year. It's fiercely contested, and the same blogger wins every year. Congratulations to Colin Samuels, for getting the most nominations for Blawg Review #189, based on Samuel Taylor Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner". With this Blawg Review of the Year 2008, Colin Samuels has earned the award for an unprecedented fourth year in a row. Outstanding!
Ron Coleman's Blawg Review #191, a Chanukah special at Likelihood of Confusion, is this year's runner-up. In third place in the voting, there was a tie between Rush Nigut's Blawg Review #147 based on the Register's Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa, and David Gulbransen's Blawg Review #182, a special bar exam edition. Twenty-four issues of Blawg Review received nominations this year, which shows the quality and variety of presentations is appreciated.
