Grande Conservative Blogress Diva — 2007 Nominees

Filed under: Blogging,Mythology and the real world


Given the number of talented blogresses under consideration for the coveted title of “Grande Conservative Blogress Diva 2007,” we had to find a way of paring down the list to a manageable number. To be sure, every blogress listed in my last post truly qualifies as a diva, a strong confident woman who commands the respect of men. When I reviewed their blogs, I was impressed by the quality of their writing and the independence of their thought.

In the end, we decided to nominate based on an objective criterion — those blogresses who had been seconded, either in the comments section or in e-mail to one of us. Please note that not all nominees are conservative per se. Some are libertarian. And others, while more centrist, distinguish themselves by their iconoclasm and the manner in which they take on the silliness of certain leftists — and conservative pretenders, i.e., those who, in the words of one of our nominees, “drive . . . liberals nuts.”

That said, please find below the list of nominees. We’ll post the link to the post as soon as Bruce gets it up:

Ann Althouse
The Anchoress
Little Miss Attila
Tammy Bruce
Dymphna of Gates of Vienna
Townhall’s Mary Katharine Ham
Sondra K of Knowledge is Power
National Review Online‘s K-Lo (Kathryn Jean Lopez)
Michelle Malkin
Virginia Postrel of Dynamist Blog
Kathy Shaidle of Relapsed Catholic
Alexandra von Maltzan of All Things Beautiful

We will keep this round of voting open until December 24th at which point, we’ll do a second round of ballotting with the top candidates.

  7. […] I have to admit this is fun! I find that I have been fortunately enough to have been nominated (and seconded) as a contender in Gay Patriot’s Grand Conservative Blogress Diva, along with such other Diva-wannabees as: […]

  8. Kathy Shaidle gets my vote, funny with a wee bit of a mean streak ( must be that Scottish/German heritage), but they are all good.

  9. I voted Althouse, but other than the Blogress part, wouldn’t Andrew Sullivan be a lock as Diva??

  11. […] Well, it seems the ChiComs may have something similarr in store for the DPRK. I’d love to believe reports I see here (in part because of the cool blog name, Gates of Vienna, and in part because it links to equally cool things like this). Now, North Korea would hardly become paradise, but it sure would be better ruled from Beijing. But seriously, even the threat could be very, very salutary. Hat tip, Basil and, now calm down, Gay Patriot, who is all over Basil today. Err … […]
