Best of Rest

 

The bloggers of the top three-placed blogs in each category are invited to email the Jerusalem Post at [email protected] to apply for a custom-made awards badge. If your site took place in the Finals voting but did not end up in the top three places, you may download a JIB 2005 Finalist Badge from this page.

 

I would like to thank all of you who participated in this year’s awards, especially those of you who did so in the right spirit. I hope you all had fun, benefited with increased traffic, and plan to provide your increased readership with interesting, thought-provoking content. I would also like to thank the Jerusalem Post for helping to run the awards this year. I think you did a fabulous job.

 

Until next year.

    Kol Hakavod Dave! You and the JPost did an amazing job. I’m so sorry that you had to deal with so many trolls, but I guess that’s the price one pays for blocking the nomination of all the moderate secular and left wing blogs. [KIDDING!] :-)

    Seriously, I have an idea of how much work went into this and I’m sure I’m drastically underestimating. Just so you know… I would have voted for you.
