I normally don’t pay attention to things like weblog awards, but Mark mentioned his winning of a Bloggie so I thought I’d take a look.
Well it appears at though there’s a category for ‘lifetime achievement’ which says it’s for
Webloggers who have been blogging at least since July 1, 2000. I would have thought 1999, or perhaps 1998, would be more appropriate years. Some year before Blogger came along perhaps… How about 1997?
this award can only be won once, I figure it’s only a matter of time before they award it to me. Unless they change that 2000 date to some more recent date. I mean, if you look at the page of only weblogs under ‘ye olde skool’ and pick one each year, then eventually they might get to old RasterWeb! right? All I’ve got to do is outlive the competition, and in 10 or 20 years I’ll be getting the coveted ‘lifetime achievement’ award! Mwuhahaha!
Or maybe not, I mean, it’s all just a popularity contest, right? And popularity is one contest I’ll never win. If I ever do, it’s obvious I’m doing something wrong…
Besides, I can’t attend that SXSW thing, because it’s always at the same time that we have the MXMW thingamabob each year… aw foo…
