The Edublog Awards 2004 Results

Please visit the new homepage for The Edublog Awards

Well, what can I say, a great bunch of people sharing a great bunch of blogs, thanks to all who came along & voted!

Basically, congratulations to everyone who was nominated. As I’ve gone on about ad infinitum the idea of how ‘results’ might work has been troubling me a fair bit and I’m really keen to avoid ‘winners’ and ‘losers’ (because really, these and the many great blogs that weren’t nominated (probably due to lack of credible-blog-clout…) are all very much winners) and in that thinking we kinda decided to scrap the ‘editorial’ aspect and just let the votes decide. In the end I reckon if you picked up 5 votes or more then you should get a mention here.

Also before we kick off I’d like to thank Alex Halavais for the spark and his support through this and say that, yeh, I’ve never been a great fan of awards but for me this is just about sharing, recognition and community and I’m sure you will find some fantastic blogs below… I have!

Now, as a footnote I imagine a lot of people will go off on one about the blogs which weren’t nominated, the voting system, the winners, the processes, awards as a whole etc. etc. etc. Please do! This is the first run of the Eddies and I’m sure we can do it better next time round, your constructive criticism is absolutely welcomed… fire away :O)

Just a quick note to people who have been nominated for the Edublog awards, it certainly seems to be the case that people who alert their readers to their nomination(s) may well get the odd vote or two more than others…. so… I know you may be blushing about being nominated and may not be particularly keen to say ‘hey, I’ve been nominated, go vote for me!’… which I totally understand…

But, that means that everyone who does mention will probably get more votes, so please take this as an invitation / encouragement for you to publish on your weblog that you have been nominated and link to the nomination(s)… just to make things fair :o)
