I voted today on the blogs that deserve a Bloggie award. Here is my list:
Best App for blog – Ecto
Best Australian/NZ blog – Problogger and Emergent Kiwi
Best UK blog – Jonny Baker and Rob Pepper’s Daily Drawing Diary
Best Canadian blog – Jordon Cooper
Best Asian blog – Messy Christian
Best European blog – Mark Reichmann
Best Tech blog – Dion Hinchcliffe’s Web 2.0 Blog
Best Community blog – BoingBoing
Best Design – Problogger (design by Rachel at Cre8d-Design)
If you are comparing my blog with other pre-July 2001 bloggers who qualify for this prize, you might want to look at my stats:
Here are the numbers from my blog which has been hosted by Blogger (2001-2003) and then Typepad (2003-present)
Typepad – 1,347 posts with 6, 234 comments (and i have read every one).
Blogger – 1,077 posts.
You can view how my Tallskinnykiwi blog has looked in the past with snapshots from the Wayback Machine. There is no record of my first blog – Andrew’s Tea Salon (1997) on the Wayback Machine – i have requested it but it is lost deep inside the guts of Geocities.
