Hoyden About Town is looking forward to the finalist voting in the 2008 Weblog Awards. Because it’s school holidays and tigtog and I are family-focussed right now, I’ve put together a few of my posts from the past, in the categories Feminism, Breasts, bodies and birth, Bad science, Big pharma, and Disability. They’re not chosen for any strict criteria – just the posts I found memorable, the ones linked a lot, the ones that attracted lots of comments. I’m not sure whether tigtog will find time to do the same (but I hope so!) This should be fun for relative newcomers to Hoyden About Town as well as for people cruising the Weblog Awards nominees.
If you have a favourite Hoyden post, do please feel free to add it in comments for the appropriate category. Enjoy.
