British Blog Awards

The Guardian have announced the winners of this year’s British Blog Awards. The majority of the winning entries I’ve never come across before, which is probably a good thing if it’s going to promote lesser known weblogs to a wider audience. I’d agree that The Big Smoker is a well designed blog although its design and content have been heavily influenced by Gothamist. There’s nothing wrong with that, although I’d expect more originality from a site that’s won an award for its design.
