I love to surf for new blogs and I spend way too much time at it. Any award process forces me to think about what constitutes a good "whatever." I started at the bottom of the alphabetical list of Koufax nominees.
- The name should give me some idea of whether or not I might find anything of interest (I know "Five Wells" is nothing to write home about but it's mine and I'm sticking with it.)
- If your raison d'etre is linking to Kos, don't bother. We already know where he is.
- If you've been blogging for more than a month and your sidebar still includes "Google News" and "Edit-Me" you're really not trying hard enough.
- It may seem self-evident, but you've got to have something to say to qualify as a "Best" of anything.
More later. The sun's shining and I've got to get outside. Quick. It's the tyranny of good weather. Take a look at TroutGrrl's post about the second cloudiest city. Thanks to Feministe and the Carnival of Feminists.
