Bloggies 2005: The Winners

Bloggies Winners
The good and most famous blogs won. If you go see the list of the Fifth Annual Weblog Awards Winners, or Bloggies made you feel a déjà vu: many of them won in the last year.
The wonderful Boing Boing won in the categories Weblog of the Year and Best Group Weblog and have a post about it.
Gizmodo, one of the good blogs about technology that I read won on Best Computers or Technology Weblog.
For Best Web Application for Weblogs Movable Type won: all the finalists were great, but I had my fingers crossed for del.icio.us.
The giant Slashdot is the winner for Best Community Weblog, but my favourite in the last year was Metafilter (my posts say this).
ScriptyGoddess is the winner in the category Best Web Development Weblog. It is really a good blog about development and that is why I don’t read it any more (I’m always lost in codes and I’m not a programmer).
And Best Meme winner was Flickr. Any doubt? I vote for it and I’m very happy that it won.
Among the winners that I know and read the blogs, I have to say that they deserved the prize. It was a difficult decision, but the chooses were good. But, win a prize is not a guarantee of a good blog. I know many fantastic blogs that weren’t on that list, and I know some that won prizes (even if some cheat) and have a blog that has nothing special or are not really good (and that’s why I don’t read those blogs). In Bloggies the winners are good, but the most popular won – it was a election, most votes win, right?
PS.: yes, I lost in Best Latin American Weblog as expected, but the Overcaffeinated is a very good blog. The blog is older than mine, have much more readers, has very cool layout, it’s interesting and Sergio writes very well – his posts are very good. It’s not my kind of blog, but it’s very nice. To be a finalist was amazing and he really deserves to win the prize, but I’m not happy, you know it.

    It’s a shame that you didn’t win, but just being a finalist was already great, and you should be proud of yourself.
    I kiss you.

  3. Sebastian says:

    Eu vi que eu tenho 16, um sou eu, daí não vale. 😉 Tenho mais 7 pelo rdf. Mas o blog dele tem muita mais leitores, e eu imagino que os amigos dele lêem o blog dele, os meus não. 😀
    De qualquer forma foi merecido: o cara é bom.
    Mas quem é Agamenon e CAT? Não conheço. 🙁

    Hi Sebastian, thanks so much and thanks for the Bibi’s Box on the net. Are there any others? Google told me that there is just mine. 🙂
    And I know that you are always have. Maybe we have to give prizes to each other: I have a list of great sites that I like and was not there or in other blog award. Maybe we have to create a “Blog with great links Awards” and divide in many categories.
    Again, thanks so much for the support.
    Kisses and a big hug.

    André, is not fair a boyfriend say this and you didn’t say this on ICQ. 😛
    And I know, I have to be proud… but I never win, not even in “Bingo” or “rifa”.
    BTW, you can’t say “I kiss you”, you are not Mahir Cagri.

  7. Sebastian says:

    Bibi – “best Bibi’s Box on the net”
    That was a joke…
    🙂
    But it’s true.

  8. Bibi says:

    I knew it.I was kidding also, but I chose this name after a suggestion and because I didn’t find other blog with this name. 🙂
    But Bibi’s Blog there are hundreds. 😀

    Intrometendo-me na seara alheia: imagino que o João “BlogRating” esteja se referindo aos colunistas d’O Globo Agamenon e Carlos Alberto Teixeira, o C.A.T. Em tempo: sou um dos seus 16 leitores no Bloglines, e também um dos que votaram em você no Bloggies. Mas, hey, em 2006 tem mais! 😉

  10. João M. says:

    Hummm… são personagens globais.
    Agamenon é um colunista virtual do Globo, criado por aqueles caras do Casseta e Planeta.
    Já o CAT é o Carlos Alberto Teixeira, colunista de verdade que tem um blog: http://oglobo.globo.com/online/blogs/cat/
    Na coluna de hoje ele disse mesmo que tem 17 leitores. é que os demais são leitoras. 🙂
    E quem é Mahir Cagri? 🙂

    I adore your blog! I check in daily, though I should comment more. It is the most colorful and attractive blog I have encountered. I discovered you by going to vote, and for you I voted, after visiting all the sites. Yours is the only one I added to my daily read. Your images are SO well chosen, they are a delight to the eyes. I often share your posts with my husband. Thank you for expanding my world, and making me smile every visit! 🙂 Hammond, IN, USA–near Chicago, IL
