It’s funny: I’ve been looking through the nominees for the 2002 Bloggies, and I had a few thoughts:
1. I find it interesting that Noah Grey was withdrawn in every manner, including GM for logware. Interesting because in my opinion, Noah has no equal. 🙂
2. It’s all a guilty pleasure.
3. They withdrew journals from the competition.
I’ve still got Journalizers.com sitting there in Park. The big problem is time: I don’t have it to give to the project, not that and keep up with helping out over on the GreyMatter forums. I find that helping people is more important than my only silly little projects.
But really, I was underwhelmed. I mean, okay, so you reflect society well. Yahoo.
I really do like journals better than Weblogs, and you might find that funny, considering how rarely my journals have entries. But I look at it like this: anyone can look outside of themselves. It’s harder to look inside. The better “Weblogs”, in my mind, aren’t Weblogs at all–they’re journals that distract you from time to time by pointing you to something external.
That’s why I separated the Weblog from the journal … that and the fact that I see how long it’s been since I’ve written a journal entry, and it will shame me into writing one. 🙂
