June 2, 2008 – 8:43 pm

This year we’ve had the privilege of being sponsored by one of the coolest sites on the web Lijit. More than just a site meter, Lijit allows you keep keep track of all your sites from one location. As part of this sponsorship Lijit together with the Best Of Blog Awards also ran a second contest with the winners being decided by a random drawing. Today I’m happy to announce the lucky sites that will be taking home a T-Shirt/Sticker for 3rd Place, T-shirt/Sticker/$20 Gift Certificate To I-Tunes for 2nd Place, and a T-Shirt/Sticker/Mogo Mouse for 1st Place are:

Grand Prize Winner: Three Beanz

2nd Place Winner: Travels With My Teenager

3rd Place Winner: Tales From The Stirrups

Congratulations to all of this year’s winners and special thanks to all those that made this year’s contest a major success!  Without the support of sponsors, the thousands who nominated their favorite sites, and all of you who checked back here everyday to vote, none of this would be possible. This contest is put together by a great group of volunteers who merely want to help shine a light on blogs that deserve more attention. Thank you all and see you next year!

I-Lighter Makes Research Clear Again

June 1, 2008 – 8:36 pm

Nobody likes doing research especially on the web. Too much information to narrow down, too many places to remember where everything came from, and most of the time you don’t even need the whole article just a couple of lines. If we were dealing strictly with hard copies of the info we needed, we’d just pull out the trusty yellow high lighter and go to town marking everything that might be of value later on. Now thanks to I-Lighter keeping up with all that valuable research is as simple as the swipe of a marker.


I-Lighter allows users to store their data on their own personal web page where it can easily be inserted into "files, folders and Notebooks, inserted into Word documents and blogs and shared with whom  ever you want" Plus it’s so easy to use even the most inexperienced computer users can learn to utilize this valuable tool in mere minutes. All you have to do is click on the I-Lighter icon and immediately your cursor turns into a yellow high lighter marking everything you drag it across and sending it to the your homepage. Forget about notes on which info came from what website. Download I-Lighter today and change the way you surf the web.

May 20, 2008 – 6:54 pm

We typically don’t like to post updates while the voting is taking place, so I’m going to make this short and sweet. Since more and more people are voting everyday I wanted to take a brief moment to remind everyone of the other contest that’s also currently taking place. I’m talking of course about our Exclusive Lijit Contest which is not only being brought to you by this year’s sponsor, but also offers some great 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes.
