JIB nominations are open

Hear ye, hear ye -- the Jewish and Israeli Blog Awards are accepting nominations until Thursday.

There's been a lot of talk in my corner of the J-blogosphere about why the JIBs have historically skewed to the right. I figure the best way to make the awards more representative of the full Jewish blogosphere is for more progressive bloggers and blog-readers to nominate the blogs that we care about.

On a related note, Richard at Tikun Olam has written about the awards and about the signs that this year's contest may be less ideologically monochrome than in the past. (Among other things, there's now a matched set of categories for political blogs -- "Best Jewish Left-Wing Political Blog" and "Best Jewish Right-Wing Political Blog" -- as well as a category for "Best Jewish Anti-Establishment Blog." I'm not sure how I feel about the terms "left-wing," "right-wing," and "anti-establishment," but I appreciate the effort toward broader diversity in any event.)

Anyway, if there's a blog you'd like to nominate, you can do so here over the next two days. (My thanks go to the friend who nominated this blog. I'm honored. :-)
