This was a great week. It wasn’t easy getting to a short list of twenty nominees, and I think it’s going to be particularly tough to pick an ultimate winner. I can’t imagine it will be any easier for you to vote for the People’s Choice Award.
What gets a weblog entry onto this list? Good writing, serious content — and especially both. There’s always room for something light-hearted if it’s very well written, but if you’re taking on a matter of true moment, I’m pretty forgiving about the niceties. My admitted bias is toward a deeper understanding of this thing we’re doing, real estate in the twenty-first century.
Vote for the People’s Choice Award here. You can use the voting interface to see each nominated post, so comparison is easy.
Voting runs through to 12 Noon PDT/MST Monday. I’ll announce the winners of this week’s awards soon thereafter.
