6th Annual Weblog Awards

2006 bloggies

The Weblog Awards or also known as the “Bloggies” started in 2001. The awards are annually given out to weblogs that fit into the different categories like Best Asian Blog, Best Podcast of a Weblog, Best Photography of a Weblog, Best Food Weblog, Best Computers or Technology Blog and of course Weblog of the Year, just to mention a few.

Contest Rules:

  • A “weblog” is defined as a page with dated entries.
  • The contest is open to any weblogs that existed for a period of time during the year 2005, so weblogs that were discontinued during 2005 are also eligible.
  • Only one nomination form and one finalist voting form may be submitted per person.
  • E-mail addresses are required to vote. You must use your own address.
  • If you attempt to submit a second ballot, your first one will be erased.
  • In the nomination phase:
  • URLs are required (where applicable).
  • The maximum number of weblogs you may nominate for a category is three (3) for most categories and four (4) for Weblog of the Year.
  • At least three (3) different weblogs total must be nominated.
  • You may nominate your own weblog, but the total nominations for your own weblog must be less than one third of your total (legitimate) nominations.
  • There is no limit to the number of categories a weblog may be nominated for.
  • Nominees have to fit the category they are placed in.

These rules may change at any time, but they probably won’t.

Check out the nominees for the 6th Annual Weblog Awards here.

Personally, I believe that they should have included at least one Filipino in the Best Asian Weblog. But they didn’t. If I knew about this awards thing earlier, I would have nominated several Filipino blogs like Manuel L. Quezon III, Sassy Lawyer, Yugatech, Retzwerx not only based on their content but also their influence on their readers. I also believe that they are as good if not better than the ones nominated. I know that there are other Filipino blogs out there that could be nominated. Anyways, I’ll be ready for next year’s nomination.
