I hereby announce The Fourth Annual Satin Pajama Awards. You can nominate blogs in the comments to this post.
The purpose of the awards is to recognize the efforts and contributions of Europeâ€™s many talented bloggers, to maybe help build a sense of community among us, and, more than anything, itâ€™s a chance for people to discover lots of new good blogs.
A blog is eligible if itâ€™s written by Europeans or has a European (Czech, Catalanâ€¦) theme. Our own blogs arenâ€™t eligible. Finalists are chosen based on the number of nominations as well as editorial discretion. So you want to nominate a favorite blog even if someone else already mentioned it.
Please specify the category and provide a URL or link. We don’t have the time to track down blogs.
The polls will open sometime in April.
