Life goes on --- dammit!

Someone was complainin' 'bout the 2003 Weblog Awards originated, organized and hosted by Kevin Aylward of WizBang!. Kevin, in defendin' the nominatin' format paraphrased his critics position thusly:

[I]t [the nomination process] must be controlled by people much smarter than you [those who would complain about the process] who will tell bloggers [or others in similar circumstances]what they should like. [all bracketed crap is mine]

It sounds like the American way to me ... those with the power control the election process. Oh, the little dog may back a little guy at the start, but in the end the power brokers make most of the hard decisions for the rest of us. Heck most people don't vote and don't really give a rat's ass who runs the show anyway. Well, actually, the do kinda care 'cause they seem to like to bitch about it all after the votes are counted.

I applaud the efforts of Kevin in the 2003 Weblog Awards even though I already have a good idea that the ones that will get the awards will be the popular blogs. I never fair well in popularity contests. I am too ugly and can't kiss ass worth a damn.

Yeah, the usual suspects will probably win, but getting a nomination alongside them may bring some new viewers and end up having a positive effect, even us little guys don't win.
