The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Ballot boxing

Well, I just finished going through the 2004 Weblog Awards, and I am pleased to note that there was at least one blog in each category that I had actually read and could vote for with a clear conscience.

I am somewhat bemused by the fact that only about half a dozen of my choices turned out to be leading their categories.

And I would like to thank everyone who did not nominate me, which is everyone: considering how badly I lost last year, I was grateful not to see my name on the ballot.

Once I had riches beyond compare: a library of the finest music, the latest equipment for enjoying said music, Susanna Cornett's telephone number.

Now what have I got?

Oh, yeah, right. Never mind.

But don't forget to vote 9 more times. For reasons which aren't clear to me, you are allowed to vote once per category every 24 hours until Dec. 12. That means people who only vote once are really only casting a tenth of a vote.

And, just to make sure I heard you aright: you actually read "at least one blog in each" of the 34 categories? Sports blogs? LGBT blogs? Latino blogs? Middle Eastern blogs? And all those ecosystem categories too? Man, you are widely read fellow.
