Earlier in the year, BlogF1 was nominated (not just by myself, either) for the 2008 Weblog Awards, in the category of best sports blog. BlogF1 has never been up for such an award before, so I was quite pleased to say the least. However, the first round of voting that so many of you took time to do was just for a nomination. The real voting starts now! Read on to see how you can vote for BlogF1 as the best sports blog of the 2008…
It is highly unlikely that BlogF1 will win. For a start, this humble little corner of the Internet is up against F1Fanatic, a widely read and well written site that I’m sure most of you know about. Also in the sports category are many other well read sites, ranging from Kissing Suzy Kolber (dedicated to general sports gossip) to Metsgrrl (a site dedicated to the Mets Baseball Team). Also in the running and running away with the votes already is Hugging Harold Reynolds, another site dedicated to sports in their entirety.
However, with two Formula One sites in the finals, it shows the sport has really grown in popularity around the world this past season, especially when you consider Sidepodcast are also up in the Best Podcast and Best Community categories. Never have I before seen Formula One sites gain such publicity.
So without further ado, this is where you need to go and vote for BlogF1 as the best sports blog of 2008.
