As you know, I was a Bloggie Awards Panelist for 2005, and after spending a few hours a day for a 3 days, I was able to finally come up with my five votes in each of the ten assigned categories. As a result of my labors, here are my nominations for 2005:

Some categories were rather odd, specifically the Asian, European, and American categories. Because of what they were nominated for, I tried to choose blogs that contained content specific to those interested in that geographical region.

Photography was a blast to sort through – it was the category that by far took the most amount of my time! However, I think that two blogs should have been added to the list, Jinky Art and Utata – Catherine Jamieson Photography (which appears to change it’s interface pretty much every other day. Those are both by far my favorite photoblogs, giving me something to learn from and live up to.

All in all, it was a fun and explorative (made up that word) experience, and I have discovered plent of new and interesting sites that I would have not otherwise!

Oh, I’m honored, you picked me :) — I don’t think I made the final cut though, oh well.
