Winners! National Blog Brawl Round 1! W00t!

The winners are in! (Thanks to a neat Excel shortcut, it took a lot less time to do the counting this time around.)

survivor_brawlBUT FIRST…

Here’s an interesting fact before I get to the results. It may be more than a "fun fact" — it may actually be important.

None of the winners were blogs that were subdomains (blog.whatever.com) or slashes (whatever.com/blog) or were on a blog service (wordpress.com/whatever). Every winner was a standalone domain (whatever.com). Roll that around in your head a while.

All right. And now, what you came here for: the winners — the real estate blogs going to Round II:

From zones 1 and 4:

locomusings.com (beat wilkasgroup.com)
fostercityblog.com (beat sanfranciscoschtuff.com)
blogbythebay.com (beat deansellsaz.com)
mynapervillehomesblog.com (beat wolkia.com)
liveandplayinchicago.com (beat carolinevablog.com)
mytucsonblog.com (beat valleyofvirginia.wordpress.com)
lanebailey.com (beat sfnewsletter.com)
theagenttrainer.com (beat theagenttrainer.com realestaterain.com)

From zones 2 and 3:

nrvliving.com (beat lubasf.com/blog)
realestatezebra.com (beat gogladiator.com/blog)
phoenixrealestateguy.com (beat tinainvirginia.com — sorry, Tina!)
realestateeeenie.com(beat therealtorstoolbox.blogspot.com)
thefrontsteps.com (beat brandcandid.com)
miamism.com (beat pegasusventures.net/wordpressblog)
theyoufactor.com (beat lisasellsstroudsburg.com)
intowninsider.com (beat blog.brianblock.com)

Congrats to all the winners! (BLNT to all the, er, non-winners.)

At noon EDT voting will be open for Round II, which will last until 8:59 AM EDT on March 24.

This time you must vote in every one of the (eight) contests. Good luck, godspeed, fly straight, happy trails, safe landings, etc.!

    Did theagenttrainer.com beat themselves? I think they actually beat my blog http://www.realestaterain.com. Good luck all!
