One of the sessions at SXSW was the bloggies. It was an awards show for the best bloggers. They had categories like “Best Australian Blog” and “Best New Blog”. I didn’t know anyone in Australia had access to the internet, let alone their own blog (just kidding, of course).
It was a thoroughly enjoyable show and the winners seemed to concur with my thinking also. The show was kicked off by Nikolai Nolan.
Some of the winners & presenters of note were:
Zoe Margolis of “Girl with a one track mind” fame. She parlayed her love life into a book deal. The story is not that simple and has a few twists and turns. At the event she seemed quite comfortable.
Gina and Adrian from Lifehacker. I really like this blog and read it as much as I can.
The guys from icanhazcheezburger. This is a site I haven’t gotten into, but I hear it is very funny.
And my favorite, Heather Armstrong from dooce.com. For some strange reason, I find her blog hillarious.
