Not that I anticipate ModBlog winning because (and maybe I’m kidding myself) it’s just too weird for the mundanes, but it looks like we just got nominated (thanks!) for our first bloggy award. I guess if enough readers actually nominated ModBlog it could win, but I seriously do wonder if we’d be silently nixxed behind the scenes…

Note: I actually would be very happy if people voted for ModBlog, but please vote in legitimately if you do (ie. make real votes in other categories too).

  1. I’d vote but I don’t read any blogs regularly except this, so I’d be lost as to what to put in the other categories. Hope Modblog gets some kind of ranking, even if it doesn’t win.

  2. I will for sure vote!! i also found a new blog to go to! cuteoverload.com. It’s ridiculously cute.

  3. Not to burst this rightfully joyous bubble, but Modblog isn’t an official nominee yet – those aren’t announced until Jan 22. The link listing the nominees was the personal submission made to the bloggies folk.

    Modblog would need to be nominated by enough people so it would make the contention list. If you look at the official website for the awards, it explains the whole nominations process.

  4. Dani, you’ll note the lake of “official”. ModBlog was nominated. *NO* site has yet officially been brought to the short list, and honestly, even if a hundred thousand readers submitted it, I’d be shocked if the bloggies would have the guts to even link to ModBlog… I think they’d cut us off the list to keep an extremist site out of the running. But you never know I guess.

  5. A couple of thousand nominations (I’ve done one) and, if it was “removed” a couple of thousand complaining e-mails would do the trick. Never underestimate the power of the rant.
    Correctly spelled rants are the entire purpose of the English language :)

  6. is this really classed as an extremist blog? just a bit of piercing, tattooing.. ok some entries are a bit out there but it still makes for interesting reading i think.
    good luck with it :)

  7. There are other blogs on that list that are not meant for children. Since there are quite a few blogs on that list, maybe we’ll get lucky and no one will take the time to go through this all that thoroughly. However, if modblog doesn’t make it to the next level look on the bright side; there will be less crazies trolling the blog telling us how sick we all are.

  8. look at what happens when fark links here… i can only imagine what would happen if modblog won. but i still went and voted for this in a couple area’s along with hack a day, and some other blog i randomly found cause you had to vote for three. it would be great though to see mod blog in the running at least.

  9. PostSecret isn’t nominated!!! WTF?

    Oh, and go ModBlog! Hope you win. :) And I don’t think they really care if something might shock “the mundanes;” last year the winners received a DVD of “The God Who Wasn’t There.”

  10. Yeah, PostSecret is pretty awesome. Does anyone remember the name of that other popular secret blog where you just typed them into a box and wrote as much as you want? I’ve been trying to remember for ages now.
