An awful lot has been written about the JIBs, much of it criticism. I include myself among those who have offered criticism, but I have also said and still maintain that they are important. Dave deserves thanks for the hard work.
I am going to pick on one of my favorite lurkers and use his comments to make a point.
“What good is winning a JIB if the day after the voting is over a blogger is sitting there with 16 readers, no comments and 2 inbound pity links? The point of the JIBs is to increase everyone’s readership while actually recognising those that are really the most widely read in their category.”
