The funnest post of the year!!! (Last call for Brodies nominations!!)

OK, folks — I have compiled your nominations and reviewed all of my SiOB posts from the past year to put together the nominations for the Brodies!!

I think the biggest news for this year is the number of pieces of original research — so I have added an original research category, separate from the general “history post” category. But it’s a bit of a fine line, so if you think your post (or any post) would fit better in another category, please say so in the comments.

Below are the nominations so far — remember that any category with fewer than three nominations will be merged with another category or dropped!

    Hi Chanson, I’m leaving a comment because I couldn’t find an email for you. I’m one of the Mormon Expositor hosts. As far as any of us can tell we don’t have a malware issue (though Mormon Expression did for a while, though that is now resolved). Can you please double check to see whether this is an issue you are having and if not kindly relink our sight. Thanks!
