2004 Weblog Awards

December 14th, 2004 at 1:36 pm

I was just thinking of posting a comment on how consistently awesome Engadget has been over the last several months, when I notice (through my feed reader) that Engadget’s scooped up the 2004 Weblog Award for Best Tech Blog. Beating out Gizmodo by ~6% of the votes. This is especially fitting, since I was going mention that I’m seriously considering removing Gizmodo from my subscriptions for three reasons: 1. Everything I get from gizmodo us usually covered by engadget; 2. Engadget seems to have more interesting in-depth features; and 3. I don’t really appreciate the direction Gizmodo’s writing style seems to be heading towards. Lately I’ve found the tone of Gizmodo’s writing to be a lot more negative and artificially ‘in-your-face’ aggressive, and that’s just not my thing.

Anyways obviously the ‘Weblog Awards’ are just a vote-monkey popularity contest, but nevertheless, it’s good to see the team you’re rooting for get the prize. Even if… you know… you didn’t actually… *ahem*… vote.
