Through the awards, I’ve discovered some great new blogs, and have also enjoyed reading the submitted entries. My RSS feed has just got larger.
I think the Judges will have a damn tough job of deciding a winner, as there are many great quality entries. Hopefully they may award some runner up prizes, and/or finalists.
While the Air New Zealand Blog Awards started as a humourous reaction against the Qantas Media Awards selection, the quality of the entries has shown that the many in the blogosphere have got in behind having blog awards.
Perhaps in future years, the Judges could create a number of category awards, as well as the overall Best Blog Award. Some possible categories are:
- Best Business Blog
- Best Economic Blog
- Best Legal Blog
- Best Political Blog (could also have right/left/centre)
- Best Photo Blog
- Best Tech Blog
- Best Personal Blog
- Best Humour Blog
Anyway well done to those who submitted entries, and well done to the NZ Bloggers Union for organising the awards. Good luck to all those who submitted.
* Air New Zealand is not the official sponsor of the awards. But they have been good enough not to sue for use of their name, as it is a wind up against Qantas.
