Meanwhile, go vote for the underdogs you like. They won't win, but it will make them realize that even if they're not the winners, they still have plenty of readers who appreciate what they do.
As Robbie, who's looking for a push in "Best New", said...
Yes, I want to win. I want to win badly. But you know what's cooler than having a banner or two on my side bar? My blogroll has been getting bigger since this all started - I've found plenty of other people out there that I like.So go vote - but take your time, look around. Enjoy!
(Don't get me wrong, I like reading the new blogs I've found, but I still want to beat them.)
A final note: Thank you to Aussie Dave for all his hard work. What he has put together is truly amazing, and it's a real shame that some bloggers missed the point. I thoroughly enjoyed the JIBs, and hopefully by next year people will either get it or ignore it.
