I am pleased to announce that EAR FARM has been chosen as a finalist for one of the 2006 Bloggie Award categories. The category this site was nominated for: "Best-Kept-Secret Weblog".
How did this happen? Well, some of you guys must have been nominating this site for that category. Awesome, a big thanks goes out for that.
"That Friday, January 13, three panels of 50 voters received an e-mail. It listed the weblogs that received the most nominations in ten categories. They had until 10:00 PM EST on Wednesday, January 18 to privately submit their five favorites (six for Weblog of the Year) for each category. The five (or six for Weblog of the Year) receiving the most votes became finalists. I (Nikolai Nolan) only voted for the panel in the case of a tie for fifth place. This panel was on an opt-in policy.
On Sunday, January 22, the finalists were announced and voting is open again to choose the winners."
So, what that means is that now you loyal keepers of secrets can go and vote for EAR FARM as the "Best-Kept-Secret Weblog" by clicking HERE. You have until 10:00 PM EST on Tuesday, January 31 and the winners of the 2006 Bloggies will be announced at the South by Southwest Interactive Festival on Monday, March 13 at 12:30 PM.
