And The Nominees Are…
Friday, February 2nd, 2007
The finalists for the 2007 SXSW Web Awards have been announced, and I’m humbled that SuperfluousBanter has been nominated in the Blog category (which, somewhat strangely for this site, is described as including “Sites that revolutionize the power of publishing by providing regularly updated content of a personal or professional nature.”—I won’t make a direct comment on the “regularly updated” part, though I’m sure Garrett might agree that I’ve revolutionized the art of getting traffic without posting…), in what seems to have been an incredibly difficult year for the judges to even select finalists.
I’m up against some tough competition, including a fellow Sidebar Creative founder:
Now, Twitter may be considered by some to have something of an edge, especially in the “number of authors” category, but it’s definitely revolutionary, and has become a blogging substitute for many people already. The other finalists can definitely hold their own, and frankly I think I peed a little when I read the list ;)
I’m honored to be in such company, and this may just be the final kick in the pants that I’ve needed to get off my duff and clean this place up—I mean, seriously, it’s like no one’s lived here for ages, and just left without washing the dishes in the sink…
Finally, don’t forget to cast your vote once a day in the People’s Choice awards. And I mean that: don’t vote for this site unless you actually enjoy it (and if you want to see more content, hint-hint ;) but make sure you vote for your favorite no matter what, every day.
