The question IÂ initiallyÂ had, about the blog awards in part one of this post has been half answered. My question was a result of the confusion generated from giving an award in the current affairs category to “The news” I had asked how this blog could win when it had not even been nominated. A fact I displayed by exhibiting two screen shots of the nominated blogs in this category.
As anyone can see there is no blog called the news nominated on these pages.
I was informed by Tamjid and Awais via twitter that the blog which got this award was not the blog belonging to the news website but this one.Â
Obviously this fact was not evident to us from the audience as there was no clarification given, no url displayed and no answer from the organizers of the pak blog awards.
Now for the next part of the question : Would someone let us know who the judges were in this category? How did they reach theÂ magnificentÂ decision of awarding this blog site the best in current affairs blogging in Pakistan? The Â over all judging criteria is listed on Pak blog awards website but I fail to see how the winning blog even qualifies.
Let me state this clearly. I am not nominated in this category neither is it my intention to malign theÂ organizersÂ of this event. I just wish to know the truth and therefore I am asking for a reply.
This is what the Pakblog awards website shows us on the judges page…complete blank. See where the issue is now? I would also like the blogging community of Pakistan to come forth and ask what they want to ask. I have heard enough in private conversations. Â I think its time we all came out in the open with what issues we have within our community.
