Of Biased Blog Awards

A friend recently informed me about an award they are giving away in the upcoming Philippine Blog Awards sponsored by Level Up! Games, it was appropriately named Level Up! Gaming Blog Award and I was surprised about some of the finalists. I heard that GameOPS was nominated but failed to be a finalist. What the hell is a GameOPS? its one of the longest Filipino gaming website that became a gaming blog(due to changing times) and if it comes to credibility GameOPS is internationally mentioned.

It was mentioned by:
Game Pro here
PC World here
Nintendo WII Fanboy here
DS Fanboy here
Max Console here

Some of the mentions was by exposing some serious and socially relevant issue and another was for exposing some AV idols as real gamers.

Im not judging any people but for educational purposes i grabbed some of Siopao Master's images for comparison. Here are some screenshots of the finalists' blogs:

I admit i am no judge but i'll let you guys be the judge to this atrocity here is the criteria:

1. Content - 80%
The post itself and all its totality from the headline to the manner and style of writing is considered. Content and how the content was presented is critical. It is the total package, from the headline to the grammar and even to the effective use of images and sound, that is considered. Content for content sake is not enough it must be told in a manner that effectively conveys the idea and leaves an imprint in the readers’ mind.

2. Design and Usability - 20%
This refers to aesthetic and usability features of the blog. Not only should it look pretty but it should also be functional and stress free to navigate within. Is it pretty and user-friendly?

If you were a boss and to hire an employee take all this into consideration, which blog will have a formidable and impressive resume and which would deserve a no thanks remark?
