A blog by Zaki Hasan, Adjunct Professor of Mass Communication and Media Studies, was nominated last week for the 8th Annual Brass Crescent Award in the “Best Blog” category. Hasan has already received high praise a year ago when his blog was nominated for the award in two categories—”Best Blog” and “Best Writer”— and also won the 2010 Top Politics Blog Award.

“My blog is a way of expressing myself, a way of acknowledging that something is worthy of recognition,” said Hasan. “I tend to post more as people read more; and the more I write, the more I have to write about!”

The Brass Crescent Award recognizes excellence among Muslim bloggers who handle a variety of topics, from politics to pop culture. Readers nominate blogs they consider the best in a range of categories, and then vote to select the winners. Voting for this year’s best blogs is open until November 7. Winners will be announced in early December.
