The 2008 Weblog Awards Begin Monday

The 2008 Weblog Awards

Nominations begin Monday Nov. 3, 2008. You can get logos, suggest new categories, and sign-up to help out now.

There's an important issue I need help with from Wizbang readers, read on to see that...

I'm tinkering with eliminating the TTLB cateories in favor of Technorati Authority categories. Technorati Authority is a measure of the blogs linking to a particular blog in the last six months. Both are approximations, for our purposes, for categorizing sites based on size of readership.

Look at the authority of the sites that link to your site in Technorati to see if the bands proposed below make sense.

TTLB Ecosystem Based Categories
Best of the Top 1,000 Blogs
Best of the Top 1,001 - 3500 Blogs
Best of the Top 3501 - 5000 Blogs
Best of the Top 5001 - 10,000 Blogs
Best of the Top 10,001 - 20,000 Blogs
Best of the Top 20,001 - 35,000 Blogs
Best of the Top 35,001 - 50,000 Blogs
Best of the Rest of the Blogs (50,001+)


Technorati Authority (what's this?)

Best Major Blog (Authority over 2001)
Best Large Blog (Authority between 1001 and 2000)
Best Mid Major Blog (Authority between 501 and 1000)
Best Mid Minor Blog (Authority between 301 and 500)
Best Small Major Blog (Authority between 201 and 300)
Best Small Minor Blog (Authority between 101 and 200)
Best Up And Coming Blog (Authority between 51 and 100)
Best Hidden Gem (Authority between 0 and 50)

Do you like the Technorati categories? If so, please propose some better names (I just threw those together) for the 8 categories. On authority larger is bigger, so if you're going to invent a naming scheme go from large to small in eight steps.
