The Illinois Times' Best of Springfield contest is on again (hat tip to to Will). And again this year there is a category for best blog. Last year's winner was Rich Miller's powerhouse Capitol Fax Blog, which isn't surprising because he has a large readership locally and across the state. Ands his blog also just happens to kick ass. So I imagine first place is all sewn up again this year.
Meanwhile, I would not presume to pick a nominee for second place (last year it was the very deserving BlogFreeSpringfield) since I like all (well, most) of the Springfield area blogs. However, I have a nomination for second place: Spfldbloggers. That way we all win.
On second thought, since Capitol Fax Blog posts appear on Spfldbloggers as well, Rich would be getting both first and (an assisted) second place. Blog hegemony!
