Here’s the current live voting count for the Best Construction Blog competition. Things can change a lot in the next two weeks, however, as contenders set out last-minute voting campaigns.
Undoubtedly, the popular vote counts significantly in the final results, but the blog with the most votes won’t necessarily win the competition, because the independent judges consider both the quality of the vote (is it all from one place, or from a diversity of readers), and — more importantly — other aspects of the blog’s design and content in deciding on the finalists. Popular vote however, is crucial to get to the short list. You need to be among the top seven blogs that make the first page of the finalists’ graph.
