The Third Annual Satin Pajama Awards

The purpose of the awards is to recognize the efforts and contributions of Europe’s many talented bloggers, to maybe help build a sense of community among us, and, more than anything, it’s a chance for people to discover lots of new good blogs.

A blog is eligible if it’s written by Europeans or has a European (Czech, Catalan…) theme. Our own blogs aren’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.

Nominees for Best CIS blog
Nominees for Best Writing
Nominate Best Culture Weblog

  1. So you got entries for best French, UK, German, CIS or Southeastern blog, but none for Scandinavia/Finland, Eastern Europe in general, the Iberian peninsula or the Benelux?

    Would it not make more sense to lose the geographical categories, provide a loose definition of “European blog” and just use subject categories?

    That or expand the geographical categories to something more resembling reality.

    Oh, and, Happy Newyear.

  2. Hi,

    I want to nominate my blog, IBEX Salad (, which comments on the Spanish stock market and economy and delves into aspects of the olive oil industry, but you haven’t given me a category.

    Please reconsider. I feeling like a nation without a state.

    Best regards,

    Charles Butler

  3. What has happened to the Satin PJs? Nobody nominates anything?

    And it’s not fair that there is no Central Europe cat….

    And of course I nominate myself (nobody else is…!)
