Explosion in Austin - FlickrBlog beat StuckInCustoms.com for the Bloggies. FlickrBlog Aint so great. This is like the 300.

How can I compete with FlickrBlog? I bet most of their votes came from people that just clicked there because they have heard of “Flickr”.

 

I feel like King Leonidas up against XerxesFlickrBlog. They get tens of millions of users… I only have 3 million pageviews and 250,000 unique visitors per month. But I’m a one-man show… they are YAHOO. Tough competition. Why are we even in the same category?

 

Flickr is great, but the FlickrBlog ain’t so great. Consider:

 

* It’s only updated once every few days. Sometimes 4 days between posts. That’s not a blog… it has the same regularity of a Thunderstorm Warning system at worst and a Amber Alert at best.

 

* The updates would be less often if they did not patch so much.

 

* They don’t take their own photos.

 

* They are run by Xerxes and they have slaves.

 

Well… since I am here in Austin, and I DO post every day, I put a few pics of Austin on my blog .
