For the second year in a row, the Koufax Award for Best Blog goes to Atrios of Eschaton.
It should be noted that four other finalists received vote totals that would have won in 2002. Nonetheless, Atrios still has the Best Blog. The reasons are many. First is Atrios’s productivity. No one posts more often or on so wide a range of topics. As Observer noted in comments, “In the time it took me to type this, he updated again.”
It is not just Atrios’ productivity that makes him the best. Another commenter noted “I feel most at home at Atrios' whilst a big backyard party goes on. I smile, I laugh at the comment threads, I go check out the topics and insights of others I heard about at Atrios.”
Digby once said that Atrios “consistently (has)… his finger on the pulse. He’s the Beatles of Blogging. It's spooky the way he sees the trend before anybody else.”
That is exactly right. Congratulations to Atrios, the Beatles of blogging.
