CONTEST : The Best Windows Vista Blog or Website
WinVistaClub, in association with Windows Vista - The Official Magazine, is organising a contest to recognise some of the best Windows Vista Blogs and Websites.
If you run a blog or a website, which primarily focuses on Windows Vista, we invite you to submit your blog and participate. The blog may cover Microsoft & Windows in general, but must also cover Vista in particular. It could focus on Tips, Tutorials, Support Forums, Customization & Themes, News, Views, Media Center, or anything which may interest a Vista user. The Blog Title, HomePage url, along with 4 line description about it, should be submitted HERE.
The 10 best blogs will be picked up by a panel of 4. The blogs will be judged on the basis of quality of content, integrity, along with the frequency of updates. And this is going to one difficult task.
The Panel Of Judges who will shortlist the 10 best are Steve Sinchak MVP of TweakVista.com, Steven Bink of Bink.nu , John Barnett MVP of Windows Vista Support, Kerry Brown MVP of VistaHelp.ca , James Stables of Windows Vista Magazine, Emil Protalinski of Arstechnica, Aryeh Goretsky MVP of Lockergnome.Com, Barney Tormey Global Moderator at Neowin and myself.
The top 10 blogs so selected by this Panel will be put up for a public vote.
The winner and 2 runner ups, will be then be selected from amongst the top 5 blogs getting the maximum number of votes.
The Winner of the WinVistaClub Best Windows Vista Blog Contest 2008 will also get a Windows Vista Ultimate 32/64 bit DVD Box Pack, a Free 1 year license of ESET Smart Security Suite, a License of Magic Utilities, a License of MagicTweak, a one year subscription to the Windows Vista Magazine and a link for 3 months on the WinVistaClub HomePage.
The 2 Runners-up will get a License of Magic Utilities & a subscription to the Windows Vista Magazine each.
The 4th and 5th runners-up, will get a subscription to the Windows Vista Magazine each !

Wish I had a blog. While the honour of winning itself would be great, try and see if you can get more prize sponsors ... would really make the booty great.
