Vote for Year's Best Blawg Review

Week in and week out, a string of legal bloggers take on the thankless task of editing Blawg Review, the weekly carnival of law bloggers that reflects the best buzz of the legal blogosphere as seen by each successive editor. It is all overseen by an anonymous editor who will tell us only who he is not. This week, said anonymous editor kicks off the nomination process to select the Blawg Review of the Year. Sounding very much like a lawyer through his veil of anonymity, he posts these rules governing the nomination process:

Every blog that has ever hosted Blawg Review, or is scheduled to host an upcoming issue of Blawg Review, is entitled to post its nominations of as many of the qualified issues of Blawg Review (other than one's own) as it wishes to acknowledge for consideration for recognition as Blawg Review of the Year 2008.

Such nomination posts shall be calculated as votes for Blawg Review of the Year only if the nominating blogger advises the Editor of Blawg Review by email of a link to such nominations.

After 11:59 PM, GMT, on January 31, 2009, the Editor of Blawg Review shall determine the Blawg Review of the Year that has earned the most qualified nominations recorded in posts of which the Editor has been duly notified by email before that time.

Editor reserves the right to amend these rules as may be necessary for the sake of clarity and fairness.

To facilitate the process, the editor posts links to and summaries of all 51 installments of Blawg Review from 2008. And he urges anyone posting about this on Twitter to use the hash-tag #BlawgReview2008 so that others can more easily follow the discussion.
