Verrrrrry exciting - lots of good websites. I am looking forward to visiting the finalists.

Fingers crossed that my blog makes it into the select few

How will the finalists be determined?

Fingernail biting time. If I ration myself until the finalists are announced on December 5, I will have only bitten my fingernails down to my knuckles.

Watch David Bowie and David Gilmour perform a song of Syd's "Arnold Layne".
My favorite site has a link to it.

Good question Steve. There is a huge variety of blogs. Some opinion, some fact, some serious, some humorous. How do you weight the different aspects? What is most important?

aha! Answer is here http://weblogawards.org/forum/index.php/topic,11.0.html in the FAQ

Only thing is it is all past tense as if final 10 have already been selected. Also the other thing is it says people are assigned to pick the top 10 but not the criteria they use...

What do we do if our RSS feed and site URL have changed? (I bought a domain name, and in reconfiguring my site, the RSS link has changed as well.) Just pondering. Can't wait for finalists. I've already been visiting a bunch of the sites.

I'm certainly looking forward to tomorrow. Not that I think I'll be a finalist but one can hope. Either way, this is worth being part of.
