The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Reasonably outclassed

To my utter amazement, I'm up for one of those gosh-darn Weblog Awards, in the 1001-1750 (via TTLB) category.

What I find most amusing about this, apart from (1) being nominated in the first place and (2) actually getting to the finals, is the fact that N. Z. Bear tweaked the Ecosystem shortly after the Awards guys looked up all these numbers, and as a result some of the nominees in this category no longer fit into this category; in fact, of the first four I looked at besides my own, three had moved either up or down far enough to escape this range entirely.

Not that this matters, particularly. You have to have some arbitrary benchmark, and as long as it's consistently applied throughout, I have no complaint.

As always with these things, I urge you to read as many of the nominees as possible before casting your votes. (Warning: The voting system assumes you have Macromedia Flash 7 or higher.)

I don't have any idea who nominated you, but I found you through the nomination process and are now in my RSS reader. You also deserve to be a finalist. Congrats and good luck.

Actually, Charles, you deserve a Lifetime Achievement Award. Seriously.

And I'm referring to longevity & quality -- NOT the "Lifetime for Women" channel.

I endorsed you, so it's in the bag.

I am seriously peeved that they but culture and gossip together in one category. That pretty much insures that only pop culture blogs will be included.
