update on iBlogCup for April 2008

Regarding the iBlogCup I mentioned last week in a post, there’s some good news and some bad news.  So let’s start with the good news : we got the 4th most votes out of the 32 blogs.  However, the blog in our “bracket” was one of the three that got more votes than us, so we didn’t advance.

That doesn’t really seem fair, but so it goes.  Also, some blogs got 0 votes but got to advance because their competitor got 0 votes, and the one that was nominated first gets to advance in case of a tie.  So it’s too bad we weren’t up against one of those!  But either way, a few people came to the blog from iBlogCup.com, so hopefully they’ll stick around.

Another thing that doesn’t seem fair is that the blog we were up against in the first round finished 2nd overall in the previous month.  But I guess there’s no rules against re-entering, so maybe we will too.
