The 2005 BadBlog Awards

Beth at My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy is accepting nominations for her inaugural 2005 BadBlog Awards (hat tip: Rick Moran at Rightwing Nuthouse). Some sample categories:

  • Most self-worshipping blogger
  • Blogger who takes him/herself MUCH too seriously
  • Worst Post of the Year
  • Worst Right-wing Blog
  • Worst Left-wing Blog

Heh. The comments on Beth's post get pretty interesting. It's hard to get a sense of how one's own blog comes across to strangers--it's a little like seeing yourself on video for the first time.

Both Beth and Rick note that the real Weblog Awards is a good thing, and I agree. But it's interesting that, even with a brand new medium like the blogosphere with it's anti-hierarchical infinitely distributed structure, we still crave validation and attention.

Ack--anti-hierarchical infinitely distributed structure? If I keep that up I may wind up nominated.
