The Best of 604 awards were last night and Techvibes picked up 2nd place in the Best site for Tech category. Event organizer Rebecca Bollwitt wrapped up the event nicely on her blog this morning and provided a breakdown of voting for the top three in each category. Techvibes was a close 2nd with 18% of the vote to Colleen Coplick’s b5media property BuzzNetworker with 21%. We will not be challenging the results and asking for a recount.
There’s no shame in 2nd but we didn’t have much hope against Coplick as her network effect is pretty strong. The b5media network is 300+ blogs strong and she has an impressive Twitter following of over 2,400 compared to our 600. Congrats Colleen!
Positive side story – we did pick up the Best of Kris Krug award for most improved Tech site. And I heard the voting wasn’t close with Techvibes picking up 100% of Krug’s vote and BuzzNetworker shut out entirely.
