2007 Bloggies Finalists That I Read

, , | UltraRob | Saturday, January 27th, 2007 at 5:15 pm

3 of the blogs that I read regularly are finalists in the 2007 Bloggies. Two of them are cycling blogs.

The first one is the Fat Cyclist. Fatty races the Leadville 100 every year. He also struggles with his weight like I do but I’d be happy to get my weight as low as Fatty’s. He is a finalist in the Best Kept Secret Blog category. He says he will hold his breath until he turns purple if you don’t vote for him.

The second one is Up in Alaska. Jill is an ultra endurance cyclist and always has great pictures on her blog. She’s currently training for the Susitna 100. Yesterday she rode a 100 miles on her mountain bike in conditions I’d use as an excuse to not train. She’s a finalist in the Best Sports Blog category.

Let’s all help these 2 cyclists win by voting for them. Voting ends at 10:00 PM EST on Friday, February 2.

Since you’re still reading, I’ll tell you which non-cycling Bloggie finalist I read. It’s ProBlogger. It’s a finalist in the Best Web Development Weblog category. Darren gives a lot of tips on writing better blogs and making money from doing it. I find his SEO posts interesting from a technical perspective. I’m a software developer and not a writer so I don’t have any plans to quit my day job any time soon. However if I could make enough money from my blog and website to be able to attempt RAAM again, I’d be more than happy. That’s one of the reasons I’ve been working on putting a cycling and outdoor gear product search on my website. I’m far from being done with it but I’ve slowly been making progress on it.
