is still down from having served more than its monthly allotment (the
page shows the dreaded “509 – Bandwidth Limit Exceeded” error). Luckily
for those who want to know who got nominated, Firda Beka of Weblog
Wannabe (a nominee in the “Best Asian weblog” and “Lifetime
Acheivement” categories) has replicated the list of nominees. If you
were interested in voting in the Bloggies but had no idea who the
candidates were, here’s her list, slightly rearranged to emphasize the
category in which this blog appears.
Note that for the first time, two Blogware-based blogs are among the
represented: this blog for “Best Canadian Weblog”, and Tom Reynolds’ Random Acts of Reality for “Best Tagline” (“Trying to kill as few people as possible”) and as the subject of Random Reality Bites, a Guardian article nominated for “Best Article or Essay About Weblogs”. Well done, Tom!
