It’s that silly time of the year where lots of awards, ‘best of’ articles and ‘top 10…’ lists start appearing on blogs (and MSM sites).
- This morning I got an email about making the Forbes – Web Celeb 25 list. I scraped in at number 25 (warning – that page scrolls through different profiles) – watch out Perez, I’m coming after your #1 position. One thing I noticed about the list straight away was the ‘male-ness’ of it. Only 4 women in the list. Also the ‘white-ness’ and the US-ness of the list stood out. Lastly – the average age of the list was 38. So much for the theories that the web is just about young people.
- While I’m glowing in my own celebrity status (my wife and mates are going to give me so much grief about that last one) Wendy emailed me to let me know that I made her list of most influential Dads in the Blogosphere.
- Performancing are holding their Blog Awards and are calling for nominations. 28 categories there to choose from – nominate yourself, nominate your favorite blogs etc. Spread the love around – think before your nominate, it’d be great to see some quality new and fresh voices featured.
This is just the beginning of awards and top lists that will do the rounds over the coming two or three weeks. Then it’ll all be about ‘predictions for 2008′ type posts. It’s a bit of a ‘silly season’ – but can be fun too.
