My big CONGRATULATIONS to the following blogs that have been nominated and have made it to our "Top 10 NEW Design Blogs to Watch" list! Before announcing the results, I have to say that (perhaps due to the sheer number of new design blogs) the nominations were quite varied and many came close to each other in terms of number of votes received. On the other hand, some really "watchable" blogs didn't receive many votes probably because not many of their readers knew about this poll. As the primary objective of this exercise is to discover the "NEW" design blogs to "WATCH", I thought it would be fair that I calculated the final score not by simply counting the number of votes but also take into account other factors such as the actual length of time the blogs have been in existence and the quality of content (from a design point of view). This is to avoid this ending up as another popularity contest.
Ok, without further ado, druuuuummmroooll please! The top 10 are.............
That's it! Hope you agree that these are wonderful blogs worth watching. Some of these blogs such as "Desire to Inspire" and "Swissmiss" are not exactly new as many of us have been watching them already. Can you believe that these blogs are less than a year old and even made it to The Home Rejuvenation's "Top 10 most Influential Bloggers"? That is no mean feat and their passion for what they do is definitely an inspiration to other newer design bloggers like myself.
Having announced the top 10 by laissezfaire, I have to say that there were so many other wonderful new blogs that were nominated during this process that are each unique and inspirational in their own way. As it would be a pity not to share them with the world, I have decided to reserve a spot at the top-most right corner of this blog to introduce a new blog that was nominated each week. So do visit these new blogs when it is up!
Now that you know the "Top 10 NEW Design Blogs to Watch", wouldn't you like to find out who the current movers and shakers of design blogland are? If so, hop on to The Home Rejuvenation to find out the results of the "Top 10 Most Influential Bloggers"!
