First the bloggies, then the world
I found out that Kitta.net has been selected as one of the five finalists for Best Designed Weblog in the fourth annual Bloggies. I would have blogged about this sooner, but I’ve been trying to recover from the shock of being up against sites such as simplebits.com and whatdoiknow.org. But you know what they say, the grass is always greener on the other side – or in this case – I think other sites rock more than my own.
The monkey on the other hand thinks this is fantastic, he keeps saying “first the bloggies then the world” and making devious plans. I am happy just to be nominated and thrilled by the thought of winning. So if you want Kitta.net win go vote for it!
I was also happy to see some of my favourite blogs are finalists, Shinyplasticbag.com is up for for Best Canadian Weblog and gtmcknight.com (who’s been at the beach for days) for Best Non-Weblog Content and 1976design.com/blog is up for Best Programming of a Weblog. And of course, dooce.com is up for Weblog of the Year.
Sadly, I know I won’t be making it to the award ceremony at SXSW. Not only is money an issue, but I am also going on a family holiday around the time of the ceremony (something which we haven’t done in over 4 years). So if you are going, please tell me. I need someone to accept for me if I do win.
Lastly, I want to say a big huge thank you to everyone who nominated Kitta.net and to the panel of judges who voted for me. 🙂 The monkey will remember this when he takes over the world.
