The 2015 Cry and Howl Top 20 Conservative Blog Award

July 9, 2015

Okay, here we go! I finally got around to making the 2015 Cry and Howl Top 20 Conservative Blog Award. A lot of sites such as Drudge, Bad Blue, Hot Air, American Thinker, etc. get plenty of recognition. There’s the Fabulous 50 Award, and for the list of winners for 2014 click HERE. There are a lot of great sites listed. However the list nearly always has the same folks. I think it’s about time conservative bloggers who may not be as well known, are recognized for what they do to combat the wiles of people trying to bring America down.

Thanks to a few folks who read humble Cry and Howl and gave their input, alas, we have 20 blogs more than deserving of this award. Personally, I want to thank all for continuing the fight. Whether it’s exposing the insidiousness of those in power or simply providing comfort and /or an encouraging word, we’re all in this together and I sincerely appreciate everyone.

I have to admit, there are a few (“few” = 3 to 7) that I haven’t visited. But if they are good enough for the folks visiting Cry and Howl, it’s good enough for me.

And here they are … (listed alphabetically)

America’s Watchtower


Earl of Taint

Free North Carolina

Gates of Vienna

Independent Sentinel

Lady Raven’s Blog

Maggie’s Notebook

Nebraska Energy Observer



Right Ring

Silent Soldier

Talk Wisdom (not wholly political)

Texas Fred

The Last Refuge

The Mad Jewess

Western Rifle Shooters Association

Zero Hedge

Whoa! I noticed I have only 19. Okay I think not all have to be political … just conservative.


Here’s the award …

GreyWolfI might need some help notifying everyone. So, if you suggested anyone I hope you’ll let them know they’ve won a very prestigious award. I hope all acknowledged here will put the award in their side bar.

    Wow – and thank you and – I thought you only put up list asking for suggestions yesterday and i was busy and this morning I was going to write suggestion – DANG – ok so, I’ll still throw in my nomination – and will definitely get to those above I haven’t.
    Like Texas Fred – I KNOW I need to get there, it’s been too long!
    Anyway, I would have thrown in Moonbattery. The guy does one hell of a job daily.

    Another thing that I appreciate about your list though I don’t know all of them, those I do, there is one writer. That is a hard thing to do with life being what it is. Anyway – thank you Steve, I am appreciative at the recognition.

    OH WAIT – I was also thinking about those who mostly do reblogs which are so important to spreading the word – Gunny G is terrific as is The Silent Soldier…………….I could so go on! Think I will get back to work!!!! 🙂

      Gunny G is awesome and I appreciate all he does. Moonbattery the same. There are so many. I had never heard of Texas Fred, but I visited the site and WOW … awesome. I love the patriots all. Thank you for sticking with ol’ Steve Lady Raven … You’re one of the best.

      Just visited your site Jim and it is one of the best I’ve seen. I regret not learning about it until now. I immediately started following. I do all my blogging from work so sometimes it’s difficult to get to all my friends sites, but I’ll be visiting yours. I’ll add you to my blog roll if it’s okay with you. thanks for stopping by.

    Hello Steve; Citizen Tom immediately comes to mind. The many blogs here on WP (on my bloglist) are valued folks. I lost contact with Samiam; he’s deleted and added pages since I last visited him. Most of my efforts lately have been at ONR. (check out my gravitar to view my other sites) I might add that many of the folks here haven’t developed their gravitars; it takes a bit of navigating to understand how to set it up; seems most haven’t bothered.

      Citizen Tom is one of the best conservative blogs on the web. I should have made a top 25 or 30 list. Live and learn.

      Smooches and kisses (Mad Jewess and Hocuspocus13) I understand it for us all here at C&H (and your blogs), it’s still the same old story. We love America. I won’t though send Steve smooches, as neither of us is Pajama Boy. 🙂

      Not been around much Steve, will have another PET scan next month to find out if the cancer is still in remission. I just can’t seem to find the passion to blog, post occasionally, maybe a couple of times a week.

    Re JCSCUBA – (this is a very late reply) The map in your site link is deceptive. the URL –
    Contains the list (gag) of specific cities; many in the very states on our sieve of a border. You would expect the CA list to be long; however, those in Arizona and Texas are disgusting.
