Have the Top 100 Language Blog awards run their course? May 20, 2012

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Random musings.

I received a reminder the other day that my blog had been nominated, but it just occurred to me that I had completely forgotten all about it – and none of the other language blogs I follow have even mentioned the awards either. Bravo, fellow bloggers, for seeing the awards as a way for a website to get a ton of hits without having any substance behind it and not trolling for votes this year.

Would you mind to link to the full list, Jill? (That stuff just always feels so arbitrary to me anyway…)

2. Jill (@bonnjill) - May 20, 2012

I don’t have a link to the full list. The site is bab.la. I don’t want to publish the link to encourage the traffic.

I never really saw the point of it. If I wanted to drive traffic, there are so many better things to do.

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I
guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for novice blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

The fact that they nominated your blog is enough to keep writing. Cheer up! I ended up at your site from Language Lovers exactly.

Jill (@bonnjill) - May 25, 2012

Aww, thanks Stanag. I appreciate the kind words.

That is very inspiring on your part to continue on blogging. Congratulations for being nominated!
