And the results are in...

Yes, the results are in from bab.la and Lexiophiles' 'Top 100 Language Blogs 2009' competition, and The Engine Room placed eighth in the 'Language Professionals' category (as well as 45th overall). I'm pretty pleased with that.

Ooh, and we've even been given a pretty badge:

Top 100 Language Blogs 2009

The category was won by Separated by a Common Language, a great blog about British and American English (and one that I'm sure I've mentioned before). It's a well earned victory.

Congratulations!

I decided not to vote, because I was so very unimpressed with the way the competition was (dis)organised. Evidentally the incompetent management didn't prevent some worthy bloggers from doing well, though - and I congratulate you and Lynneguist for being among them.

I just treated it as a bit of fun, really. I did think it was a bit strange that Lexiophiles used both public voting and its own criteria (content, consistency, interactivity) to determine the rankings: is The Engine Room the 45th-best language blog, or the 45th-most popular? Neither, probably.
