The New Bloggy Award

Posted on Dec 2, 2007

Bloggy Award

Thanks to another great design by Thord Hedengren, Bloggy Award has been injected with a new lease of life after some months in the doldrums.

“Blogs have become very popular in the past couple of years because they gave individuals a voice on the Internet. You no longer have to be a hotshot publisher, an ace reporter or a sought-after columnist to get your thoughts read. You can have a free account with a blog host and post your thoughts online anytime you want.

However, having a great blog is not easy pickings. There are a few things that separate a great blog from a good blog, and also a good blog from one that?s downright rubbish. There are tens of millions of blogs out there, so it?s great to have an excellent blog that stands out!

It takes a good combination of content and design to make a good blog. Add to that a dash of personality and a good sprinkling of passion, and you might just have what it takes to have a great blog. And here, we reward well-written, well-designed blogs that are created and maintained with passion and personality with the Bloggy Award.”

Under the new criteria, sites can be awarded a “gold” or “silver” award, depending on if it is an outright winner or one that just ran close but didn’t quite make it.

We are planning a Hall of Fame for all past, present and future winners and adding incentives, including cash prizes of $250 per month, as well a whole host of freebies- such as free use of pMetrics’ premium service, a free blog reboot by the Performancing team and many others.

The archives are also now presented in a much more comprehensive manner with an A-Z page, making it easy to find the blog review you want to read and the date it was created on.

Bloggy Award has gone through quite a few ups and downs over the last two years with initially surprising success and popularity, followed by some rather mediocre and disappointing times. We have had trouble in getting the right blogger to review other blogs, as the nature of most of the blogs we review are “amateur” and not attempting to go down the “problogger” or path of monetization and profit. The blogs are usually pursuits of personal pleasure and passion. So we are very pleased Noemi Twigg, of Travelogger renown, agreed to come on board and many thanks to her for doing such a great job!

So what are you waiting for? Submit your blog for a free review now at the new Bloggy Award!
