I’d like to thank… no one
: Rafat Ali goes off on a fine rant vs. the National Magazine Awards, which suddenly include the possibility for giving kudos to blogs but never told bloggers to enter. Pariah Burke also lets off a little steam about the lack of nominations and awards.
I say: Ignore it. First, you shouldn’t expect one industry to award another. Second, you shouldn’t care about awards. Your award is your audience’s traffic every day. If you start writing for awards instead of for readers, you get into trouble and you can point to many an old media industry to prove it.
