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.
