Who are Utah’s top bloggers?
That’s the question I’m asking you…the blog reading public.
Yes, this is a popularity contest, but I want to try and keep it fair. So, while you’ll have your favorite, please make your vote based on these conditions:
How often does your favorite blogger update?
How good are their posts?
How well does this blogger develop a sense of community?
Once you’ve answered those questions, please vote for one of the following top blogger nominees.
Who are the nominees?
In no particular order, the nominees are:
Mainstream Media Blogs
Deseret News Blogs
Ogden Standard Examiner
Salt Lake Tribune
In a league of their own (good)
- Heather Armstrong – Dooce
In a league of their own (bad)
Real Estate Blogs
What was the selection criteria?
If I could find the site on a search engine or one of my other nominees linked to you and you had a recent update and some sense of community (comments) I included you.
Why was my site excluded?
I couldn’t find you or I did find you and your blog didn’t meet my criteria. To those newspapers in St. George, Provo and Logan I did see your blogs. They were crap and won’t be included.
Can I still be included?
Sure. Send me your name and the URL by email and I’ll take a look. You’ve got until October 10, 2009 to have a fair shot with the competition. If I like your site and it meets the judging criteria, I’ll add you to the poll.
Where can I vote?
. This isn’t American Idol, so repeat votes by the same person won’t be counted.

Is there a prize?
Traffic, inbound links and widespread admiration. What do you want? Money? Maybe next year we’ll find a sponsor.
