    The winner of the 2008 LAMMY for Best Blog is…

    It wasn’t my intention to do what I’ve done just below. However, circumstances beyond my control have given me reason to think it necessary, or at least a good idea. Surely, there is the potential for someone to think “Hey, my best blogging buddy didn’t vote for me!,” though I certainly don’t think there’s much reason to (there’s a lot of competition, after all).

    Either way, below you...

    Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but there’s not much doubt about the winner of this category. News, reviews, video and more, all put together professionally made this a somewhat easy choice for the voters. This was the 5th most active category, with 69 total votes spread to 32 sites by 32 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 21.6% of the voters, the 13th highest percentage of all the...

    This got a bit tricky, as a faux pas by me (not separating the named feature as a required field) led to some voters not putting in the name of the feature they were voting for. However, the winner here was named on all ballots and is fully deserving. This was the 11th most active category, with 49 total votes spread to 21 sites by 27 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 29.6% of the voters, the 8th highest...

    All I have to say is, you’re the best…around! This was the 7th most active category, with 62 total votes spread to 16 sites by 31 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 58.1% of the voters, the highest percentage of all the categories.

    The envelope please…

    The winner of the 2008 LAMMY for Best Blog Name is…

    What’s in a name? Does it need to have “movie” or “film” in the title, all the better to be found on Google? Should it be funny? Does it do a good job of describing the writing that can be found at that URL? These must all be good questions, because it seems we all have quite a few different ideas about what makes a good name (34 sites received votes). This was the 2nd most active category, with 76 total votes...

    If it seems I don’t have as much to say about this category, well, that’s by design. I left the criteria (not as though there’s all that much for the other categories) open to your interpretation. Simply put, I asked “Who’s shooting for the moon?” This was the 9th most active category, with 59 total votes spread to 27 sites by 29 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 31% of the...

    Polls. Pictures. Links. Advertisements. Celine Dion photos. Blog Archives. We all have widgets on our sites, but some get more mileage out of them than others, finding a way to incorporate them so that they enhance the experience rather than just being there. This was the 12th most active category, with 43 total votes spread to 20 sites by 23 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 34.8% of the voters, the 11th highest...

    Some people use text only in their blog posts. Others pepper in pictures. Others make their own photos (like of cartoon lambs on statuettes) or use video or slide shows. The winner here is quite experienced at all of the above. This was the 14th most active category, with 39 total votes spread to 20 sites by 23 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 26.1% of the voters, the 11th highest percentage of all the...

    The LAMB’s version of “Most Likely to Succeed,” this award was almost a foregone conclusion, as I’m pretty sure that the winner is indeed already getting paid, so they were the odds-on favorite to win. This was the 4th most active category, with 71 total votes spread to 24 sites by 33 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 33.3% of the voters, the 6th (tie) highest percentage of all the...

    This one’s pretty self-explanatory – who’s the person that never sleeps, or at least makes it seem that way? This was the 8th most active category, with 60 total votes spread to 34 sites by 28 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 28.6% of the voters, the 10th highest percentage of all the categories.

    In case you’re new here, scroll down just a little bit and look at the sidebar.

    This is the bizarro cousin to the J.D. Salinger award, meant to award the blogger who posts a lot, but maintains the highest quality with each and every post. It was the 10th most active category, with 52 total votes spread to 23 sites by 26 voters. The winner took the trophy while receiving a vote from 42.3% of the voters, the 5th highest percentage of all the categories.
