I’m sure there will be some interesting analysis and conclusion drawn from these numbers, so please share it. Keep in mind that behind the numbers and blogs are people (with feelings), so let’s keep the comments constructive.

  1. No real comment but a heartfelt thankyou. I enjoyed the way you organized this with the slow roll out and the video clips. What I enjoyed most was being pointed in the direction of other blogs and discovering new voices. I also enjoyed the fact that several new readers have come to my blog and my audience has increased. So, job well done Saskboy and all.

    Yeah, kudos on a well run contest!

  3. saskboy says:

    Sorry for the delay on detailed stats, I won’t get to them tonight.

  4. I echo Dave’s and CalgaryGrit’s sentiments. A big thank you to Saskboy and the CBA team for an excellent job. I enjoyed the slow roll-out too. Looking forward to next year’s!

  5. saskboy says:

    You’re welcome everyone. Sorry I’ve been slow in getting detailed stats to a few who requested it, I will try in the next day to catch up.

  6. I can see from the vote totals and lack of general interest in Business blogs,why my attempts at monetizing my blog have been so bleak.

    Business had 124 votes spread between 7 blogs, If I had more friends it would have been a cinch to win, but with these totals even my friends didn’t vote. That people don’t care about their finances and future explains a lot about the state of the world finances, sub prime, massive personal, public debt, inflation, etc no one gives damn.

    I guess I should have blogged on knitting, sports or porn if I wanted to make ad money. MMMMM next year can you have a combined knitting, porn, celeb gossip and football catagory, I think I’m changing themes.
