WEBLOG AWARDS HUBUB
Check out results of the 2003 Weblog Awards. Now, we all know they're a little skewed. These awards are more populist - hell if I can nominate myself and get in, that tells you something. It's a good compliment to something more curated, like the Best of British Blogging.
Steve OutingDon't Designers Blog? The design of today's weblogs reminds me of the early days of desktop publishing. Those early desktop-published newsletters were often poorly designed (or worse), and often relied on standard templates that came with the software. It's the same with many weblogs today, apparently, if the "winners" of the 2003 Weblog Awards "Best Looking Blog" category" are an indication. While some of the cited blogs have some nice design elements, none of the top 10 quite live up to the standards set by the best commercial media websites.
My response is here, but suffuce to say the sites nominated do not represent the best in blog design. But that's okay. If Snazzy Kat's design reflects her personality and makes her visitors feel welcome, isn't that good blog design? It's certainly unfair to compare that to the top commercial sites.
