-- 2006 Bloggies Finalists --

Our first five reviews featured the five finalists for "Most Humorous Weblog" in the 2006 Weblog Awards, better known as The Bloggies.

Our reviewers agreed with the masses, giving Bloggies winner Overheard in New York a higher rating (91.7) than the other finalists.

The Superficial came very close in our scoring system with a 91.5, followed by You Can't Make it Up, Fark, and Stuff on my Cat.

Humor content makes up 70 percent of our scoring system, so it's no surprise these blogs fell in line based on their content ratings on a scale of 1-10.

The other noticable thing these blogs have in common is posting frequency. Posting every day -- or in some cases several times each day -- helps give these bloggers a massive, loyal following.

The next 17 blogs featured here on BlogLaughs are the remaining 22 semifinalists from the 2006 Bloggies. I'm certain several of these upcoming blogs will challenge the ratings of these five finalists. (Thanks again to Nikolai Nolan for providing me with this list.)

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our reviewers. They have done a tremendous job looking at these blogs objectively, rating them in different categories, and making comments.

If you are interested in becoming a reviewer for BlogLaughs, please send an e-mail to We have more then 50 reviewers right now, but I'd like to have 100 on the list to make sure we have a better sample size.

All individual reviews are confidential, but we are happy to put a reciprocal link for our reviewers on our sidebar if they are interested.

Thank you all for supporting BlogLaughs. Our site will get better once we get more reviews, start some arguments, and get a new design.

Thanks again ...


  • I noticed that these blogs had daily postings - or multiple postings every single day.

    I can't imagine devoting that much time to a blog. They must either have inherited money or have a sugar daddy (mommy) supporting them.

  • Yeah, some of them probably post too much.

    You'd have to have almost limitless content to post that often too. Four of those blogs take outside submissions. The other deals with celebrity gossip.

    I can't imagine posting that much without getting help from someone else.

  • I post everyday and it's a freaking nightmare trying to think of something to say. Which is probably why my posts tend to be short.

  • I think most people are like that.

    I've only ran across one blogger who claims to spend only 10 minutes each day on most posts with no planning and no stress over what to write.

    I was like that when I started, but then I began to feel the pressure as my readership grew.
