Remember earlier this month, when you nominated MemeStreams for the Bloggies?

Well, apparently there weren't enough of you.

The nominees for the 2007 Bloggies have been announced, and MemeStreams is not on any of the lists. Better luck next year!

Anyway, be sure to go cast your votes before Friday, February 2.

The nominees for best community weblog are:

Overheard in New York

Oh, I could really get to liking this one. Whereas PostSecret is more introspective, "Overheard" seems more existential.

Update: "Overheard" is just plain classic.

Oh No They Didn't!

This is just a celebrity gossip LiveJournal. What's the big deal?

And these last three you probably already know:


The nominees for Best-Kept Secret Weblog are:

Fat Cyclist

This Fat Cyclist site is stupid. Two years ago, at the start of this blog, the guy is 5'8" and 188 lbs. Now he is down to 173. His blog has huge gaps in coverage; for nine months at a stretch, there are no posts.

This next one is your standard-fare celebrity gossip blog. Blah.

The Gilded Moose

This next one is an interesting idea -- general interest news-tracking blog, told from the point of view of the author's dog. I can't imagine actually reading this blog.

Woof Woofington

Confessions of a Pioneer Woman

'Confessions' is the personal blog/photoblog of a "thirty-something ranch wife, mother of four, and moderately-agoraphobic middle child who ..." It's modestly compelling in a simple, everyday kind of way.

To Whom It May Concern

Clever concept, but only mildly amusing in practice.

Well I joined to write one post and then I will disappear. I simply must respond to your comment that the Fat Cyclist site is stupid. The only thing that is stupid around here is your stupid comment. If you are going to go off on someone's blog, I would seriously advise you to know what the hell you are talking about, or run the risk of demonstrating to the world that indeed your IQ is slightly below your hat size. While it is true that Fat Cyclist started the blog ostensibly as an incentive to lose weight, the wild popularity of the blog has moved it way beyond that (FYI there is a weight loss contest going on at the blog now and almost 70 people are involved).
As with many successful blogs, Fatty has A) great insight into cycling and life, and B) tremendous talent as a writer and humorist.
For those reasons he has attracted a wide following around the world and is actually most deserving of fame and success. And wrong again on the gaps in blogging; he recently moved the blog from a different site and is moving older articles over; there has been no interruption in blogging at all--DESPITE that he recently moved from the West coast to Utah and took a new job.
So best wishes, and if there is a Sour grapes award, I will be sure to cast my vote over here.
