Daily Notes - January 8

First a quick stats update...

As of Thursday evening we've had 950,000 visitors since The 2008 Weblog Awards began on Monday, of which 250,000 came today.  On the voting front, as of Thursday evening over 375,000 votes have been cast.  We're just about at the halfway point in voting so there's still plenty of time for sites that are down in the polls.

Readers can help by notifying finalist bloggers who have not asked their audience for votes, since we've found that often occurs because the blog owner is unaware they are a finalist.  We've got finalist badges and polls they can embed on their site if they want to participate.  In case you forgot, or hadn't noticed, details on embedding polls for The 2008 Weblog Awards on your site are available here.

Lastly, thank you to those who have take the time to e-mail of tweet to us about how much they appreciate our work on The 2008 Weblog Awards.  We keep doing this year after year because of the little compliments and the enjoyment others get out of The Weblog Awards.

Now go forth and explore the finalist sites!

 

Udpate:  If I can ask a favor...  Please stop e-mailing me telling "site X is in the wrong category" or questioning our placement of finalists.  I've heard your various concerns and we'll take them into consideration for The 2009 Weblog Awards.  It's too late to make changes to this year's finalists slates.
