The travel website southafricato has chosen 66 Square Feet as the best of all the blogs in the best Travel Blog Category for the SA Blog Awards.
Their feedback and analyses are actually very helpful. Thank you, Rob.
I first came across this travel blog when Rob linked to a snippy post I wrote about Delta's last-minute flight cancellations in South Africa and Stateside.
Now how does a blog about a small New York terrace get nominated for a travel award?
Well it's a small terrace: one needs to get out sometimes...See below.
Then the Con's:
Mr Ackerman is angry.
He feels that it is odd that a blog about "urban container gardening" gets nominated for best travel blog. Well, that was my first reaction too. Then again, many of my posts are about travel. Says so in my manifesto...weary smile. Count the posts, Kurt.
He feels it is all fluff and fraud and that serious stats are not taken into account. Does that mean the blog with the most hits is the best blog? Do hits = quality?
Is he right?
