Millions of blogs, Thousands of nominees, 151 finalists, Thirty winners!
Yes, a 30 from millions! Bloggies awards started in 2001 and is one of the top known awards in blogging. While i’m a fan of two blogs in the top list; PostSecret & Boing Boing, i came across this cool blog; Joshuaink, which won the best design and best tag line. Not sure about the tag line, but the design, its Damn COOL.. I was looking at its CSS and design for atleast an hour now.
One thing i didnt like is the best blogging tool award. Won by Blogger.com
I wish WordPress.org won it.

Rusty Brick talks about why Ugly Sites Earn More With Google AdSense.
It says â€œpeople land on the site, and immediately want to click off. They find the nearest ad, and most attractive part of the page, which happens to be the AdSense ad, and clicks off. Phew, they are saved and they move on to a real dating site, that is both professional looking and functional.â€
Well, thats true. We come across lots of sites which are made for nothing but to display adsense and make users click on them. Some sites dont even have enough content to read but will have enough ads to click. And as we know, these ads are tempting because they are written by professionals. Well, thats a part of my job too. I mean writing and optimizing ads to make more sense or to be straight, to increase the CTR. Well, as the arguement says, these sites can be spam but users endup on high quality sites. the visitor gets what he wants, Google make money and the webmaster using adsense also makes money. To me, may be thats the way it should go! may be it can be called as an win-win situation?
Quick Online Tips is one of the blogs that I regularly visit and have some great reading. Being a fan of Google, Firefox, WordPress, Blogging & Technology, there are few more blogs like this one which have the same passion as i do. If you are a blogger and a techie, and if you never came across this quick online tips, check it out now! It was hosted with blogger.com previously and now with wordpress script and now has its own domain. The advantage is that, one can customize a wordpress blog for extreme features which blogger.com or any other script does not provide. And no support is as good as wordpress.org community. WordPress fans like me feel happy to see these big blogs migrating to wordpress.
Well, if you are looking to setup your own blog and dont know where to start, you can just ping me from my contact page.
