SXSW 07 Web Awards

This was revealed a few days ago but I'm only just getting around to mentioning it. This very blog,, got nominated for this year's SXSW Web Awards! I'm in the Blog category with:

South by South West 2007.

I have no clue how they determine a winner (I think they flip a coin...that's how I'd do it) so it's anybody's ball game. Interestingly enough, this is the same category that Bryan Veloso won last year. The awards show this year will be emceed by Ze Frank, which should prove for an entertaining night so for anybody who can make it out, it'll be super fun!

There's also the People's Choice Award which allows you (yes, YOU!) to vote on the number one site out of all of them. Feel free to hop on over to the site once a day to vote for yours truly!

Your new comment layout seems a bit Veerle-ish.. I like them though! Maybe add some margins in between?

Congrats on being one of the nominees - you deserve it. You probably run the blog that I find the most interesting to read on the entire net!

Congratulations Jonathan!
I hope it goes well for you.

Wish I could make it to SXSW :(

Thanks for the votes!

@Fredrik: I'll take it as a compliment that they're "Veerle-ish". :) I kept the margin small to create a slight overlap of each element. It's subtle but it's there. The preview gets a larger margin to separate it from the list. Like everything, I'm sure it'll evolve.

I was just looking at the site for this, and saw your link up there and knew right then who I was going to vote for ;)

I wish there were more synonyms for 'congratulations'. Anyway, voted!

Well deserved. Your clean and tight design should be recognised if not rewarded.

Andy Kant said on February 07, 2007

Congrats. Well-deserved, this is definitely one of my favorite blogs.

Sweetness! Very deserving considering your use of green. :)

I was just wondering about the frontpage though... It feels a little cluttered since I only run 1024 but it felt a little hard finding exactly the right column and so... maybe sell that column out a little more?
