Ten years ago, bloggers were joining webrings, ranting about the A-list blogs, and journaling about little girls on bikes. The Bloggies were born then and have been grown ever since, becoming the Web's most established blog awards ceremony. This is the 2010 Weblog Awards, where the Web will award the first Bloggies of the new decade.
The winners will be announced on Sunday, February 28 from 8:00-10:30 PM EST (GMT-5) on the Bloggies Twitter feed. One winner will be announced approximately every five minutes, culminating with the Weblog of the Year at 10:30, at which point the winners will be posted to the site. Follow the feed to keep up to date on the Bloggies!
As is tradition with the Weblog Awards, the Weblog of the Year will receive 2,010 US cents (US$20.10).
South by Southwest Interactive offers Bloggie finalists a special discount to attend the festival. The cost of Interactive registration for Bloggie finalists is $395.
