Last week’s ProBlogger poll took a tongue in cheek look at Blog Awards and asked readers to identify their favorite one.
The results were overwhelming on two front.
Firstly by the number of voters. While polls in previous weeks have had over 1000 respondents (sometimes in much shorter time periods) this week only 163 readers responded which gives an indication of how much interest there is by many bloggers in awards.
Secondly the actual results revealed that just over 50% of those who could be bothered to vote did so in the ‘I detest blog awards’ category with a further 14% voting for these very awards. I think that shows just how much the average voter likes awards.
Of the serious awards nominated by ProBlogger readers the one that polled best was Best of Blogs (23 votes), followed by the Weblog Awards (12 votes) and the Bloggies (8 Votes) – although the numbers were so low that I’m not sure much can be drawn from the stats and interestingly these were the first three blogs listed in the poll (in the same order that they finished).
Anyway – here’s this week’s poll’s graph for what it’s worth.
