Battle of the ad blogs 2006.

I remember when the blogosphere was a very lonely place when you blogged solely about advertising, as all the cool kids were blogging about anything but. But since ca 2003, that has all changed as the advertising blogosphere suddenly mushroomed and is still getting bigger every day.

So welcome to the Battle of the Ad Blogs 2006, where a posse of adgrunts have sifted through the ever growing pile of ad blogs to find the gems and pit them against each other. Your vote is needed to sort out the creme de la creme! We've sorted the blogs with the right stuff into categories and want you to vote in any or all of them.

The blog with the most votes in a category wins the battle 2006, a badge to proudly wear on their blog and a snazzy t-shirt (their choice of size and colour) with their battle tank #1 Ad Blog status on it, full bragging rights included. The blog with most votes overall will get something extra. * Update: the something extra is; all winners get a Tank tee and a Pixies Live Disc, while the jammy blog that gets the most votes overall gets the tee, the disc and a 100-pack of Jewelboxings! Stick that in your pipe and smoke it!

The battle will rage until Friday Feb 10, when we'll announce the verdict of the worlds ad blog readers. Who will win? :9
Bets of luck to all battle-blogs!

edit: If you haven't had enough yet, check the ad links for two hundred odd more ad blogs.

    Good on ya guys - however, the sad thing is that when you institute your own 'awards show', you can't be seen to put yourselves into the mix - however, by instituting this awards / peoples choice-fest, at least you own the territory.
    Personally, I'd have voted for you guys in several of the categories available - if I could have done :)

    Adland doesn't need to put themselves in the mix, they were the first one after all. All the nominated are baby ad blog spawn. : D

    Top stuff, I just wasted my entire Friday checking every one of those blogs out and didn't get a lick of work done. Who wants to bet that the Russian ad blog wins the Jewelboxings?
    It's great to see so many sites that are not from the US for a change.

    The CD rocks - I already have it (well, the eMusic one) and have been a 80's retro geek rocking out in iTunes. :)

    Thanks for the nomination. :)
