Weblog Awards

Once again Funmurphys the Blog has been inexplicably passed over for the Weblog Awards. Perhaps it's because I've been locked out of the TTLB ecosystem. Perhaps I offended Kevin Aylward. But whatever the case, I hold no animosity towards anyone involved.

I did notice that they are missing a few categories. Rather than go through that whole expensive and time consuming process of setting up a special website, soliciting votes, and counting the votes, I decided I would just award a my own award, the Koveted Kevy, to those websites I deem worthy.

So it brings me great pleasure and distinct pleasure to present the 2006 winners:

We welcome comments. However, use no profanity and be civil.

LOL! Thanks for the award!

If I could just figure out what I wanted to do with it... but then I wouldn't have this wonderful award!

I got a Kevy! I got a Kevy! I'd like to thank the committee, my family, rainbows, unicrons, God and Diet Coke.

I'm with Noggle - it's an honor to be nominated. Unless you're British, and then it's a honour to be nominated.

Does anyone else have the problem of reading British blogs or newspapers and having it throw off your American spelling?
