SA Blog Awards Finalists Announced

The finalists of this year's SA Blog Awards have been announced. There are a few interesting inclusions and surprising exclusions in most categories, but this is not surprising considering the nominations were left to the general public ie. the various blog's readership. It will be interesting to see how this pans out after last year's controversy.

You have until March 19th to have your say. Vote for your favourite, favourite here.

Here's the full list of finalists in each category. I will be sharing my predictions over the next 2 weeks.

Dont even know 3/4 of these :) fantastic way to find new content :)

Stefano, theres a certain amount of irony in that isn't there?
I will be doing just that and reporting back over the next couple of days.

Great list of sites. I found a lot of interesting here. Thank you :)

Eish, I think I was as surprised as you to see iMod in the Entertainment category. I guess I do tackle a fair amount of entertainment, but all in all, I'd much rather have my readers vote for me in the Personal category :)

@ DBS : Enjoy wading through the selection.I must ne honest and say I am going to have to do the same. There are quite a few I will be viewing for the first time.
@ Chris : I guess that just ups the chances for a win? Good luck.

Ye mate, 3 different categories is pretty wicked ;)
