The news of the day is that the Guardian are running a Best British Weblogger award, which I’m going to link to with the words ‘a bloody stupid idea‘ because then maybe that’ll get onto the front page of Blogdex.
Things to consider:
Would a weblog called ‘Everything the Guardian gets wrong’ be likely to win? Or how about one that wasn’t really a weblog at all, like b3ta? How about one that was completely made up – utter, complete lies? And what would happen if webloggia simply refused to take part (which is my secret hope)? There don’t seem to be any criteria for these things… More likely in time, each and every bloody site would turn into fellatetheguardian.com. And for the purposes of those of you who came in late What if you held a really big weblogging competition and nobody came?
