The BOB Nominations Continue
The Sun Sentinel BOB Awards continue to collect nominations through April 3 [Sunday] @ 9 AM, so if you want to make sure your favorite South Florida blog is included, get over there and nominate them.
While the voting process remains flawed [as I've mentioned before] and the competition amounts to nothing more than a popularity contest in which the blog with the best social media network wins [along with the Sun Sentinel's statcounter] , I do like the fact that people taking the time to review the blogs will find that there's a lot of good ones out there that I don't cover here at SFDB. I was amazed when I started checking out some of the blogs that I had never heard of before. There's a lot of solid writing going on that you can bet I'm going to start following as a result of becoming aware of them through this contest.
I had a problem last year with some of the categories that certain blogs were placed in and this year that seems to be a little better although I have to mention that European Wax Center is a business blog, for gosh sakes, and should not be sitting in the Defies Categorization, Personal and Pop Culture categories. Jeez, I'm befuddled as to who could have ever nominated it for those categories.
So make sure you get your favorite blog(s) nominated. It will be fun and along the way you might just add another blog or two to your RSS reader or blogroll.
