Bloggers Choice Awards

There has been some buzz over the new site called bloggers Choice Awards. The name is pretty self-explanatory, they give out blog awards.

This is what Bloggers Choice Awards have to say about themselves:

"Votes will be shown on the site in real-time, so you can see who's leading within each category! Winners in each respective category will be recognized at a one-of-a-kind awards ceremony on June 2nd, at Postiecon in Orlando, FL. After the ceremony, the results will be posted on this page.
There are no restrictions to nominations, votes, or comments. You can nominate as many blog sites as you want. In fact, the more the better! You can also comment as often as you'd like. You may also vote for as many blogs as you like, but you can only vote once per blog, per category."

I can see bloggers choice awards become a popular site. It has a 'Web 2.0' feel to it and they have done well to separate themselves out from other voting sites.

What I like about bloggers choice awards is that you vote for a blog as a whole rather than individual posts like with Digg. This is a fairer system, because it incorporates the difficult aspect of blogging consistently which is totally ignored by Digg.

This blog has been nominated for a couple of the awards (e.g. best blog about blogging). I definitely don't expect to win, but a few friendly votes wouldn't go amiss. You can vote for me through the 'brag badge' at the top of this post. Don't forget you can nominate your own blog if you want just to get the ball rolling.

Happy voting.
