The results are in for Round 1 of the Canadian Blog Awards 2006.
At the beginning, I endorsed some bloggers. Let's see how they have done.
First of all, the three of my endorsements that are going on to the second round:
Best Blog Post: Idealistic Pragmatist's Jack Layton's Sinister Mind Control is at first place, leading with 80 votes. Second Place has 72.
Best Religious Blog: Jesus Drives An SUV is at second place, at 81 votes. The first place blog is at 95 votes.
Best Media Blog: Inkless Wells is 1st, at 215 votes.
Of Course, I'm going to continue to endorse these bloggers.
Now, for the results of my other endorsements.
Best Blog: Out of 146 Blogs, my endorsement, A BC in Toronto, placed 57th. Idealistic Pragmatist placed 59th. Calgary Grit placed 7th. All are in the top half, so those bloggers should be impressed by their performances. I never heard of any of the top 5 bloggers before.
Best Conservative Blog: Out of 23 Blogs, Big Mac Political Hack Attack placed 11th, also in the top half. Congrats to him.
Best Progressive Blog: Out of 57, Idealistic Pragmatist placed 11th, which is pretty good. I placed 37th/38th/39th (three blogs tied), so I'm wondering where those 11 votes came from. Thanks.
Best New Blog: Out of 83. I placed 32nd, so I'm happy with that showing. Thanks to the people who gave me 25 votes. Giant Political Mouse placed 48th. Big Mac Political Hack Attack placed 76th-81st, which is too bad, because I think he's quite a good blogger, but I know he must have gotten the support in the Conservative Blog category.
So all in all, not a bad round of voting.
