Suffragio has been nominated as 2013′s ‘Most Promising New Blog’

It’s somewhat of a New Year’s treat to have been nominated for the 2013 Online Achievement in International Studies awards over at The Duck of Minerva, a top academic international studies blogging forum.

Suffragio has been nominated for 2013′s ‘Most Promising New Blog,’ which is an incredible honor, given that Suffragio remains a one-man show for someone whose day job is outside international affairs.  So while my blog has always been a work of love rather than my primary occupation, it’s really great to see that many of my readers enjoy and value Suffragio‘s analysis of world politics.

And it’s been a lot of fun reading the other blogs up for various awards, many of which I was already familiar and some of which are new to me.

So thank you!

A little background from Duck of Minerva:

The 2013 Most Promising New Blog (Group or Individual) OAIS prize will be awarded to blog, founded in 2011 or 2012, that displays the most promise for ongoing contribution to the intellectual vibrancy of the international-studies blogging community…. Finalists will be selected by popular vote, which will run from 5 January-31 January 2013. We will conduct the vote via online survey. In order to register as a voter, email us.

So I’m not entirely sure who is eligible to register as a voter, but if you’re a regular reader and you want to help Suffragio obtain a little positive notoriety, by all means, please register and vote for Suffragio before January 31!

In the meanwhile, for anyone who has come to my blog via Duck of Minerva, see some of the top Suffragio posts from the past year below the jump.

Thanks again!
