Inman News just announced the finalists for the 2008 Inman News Innovator Awards.
In the blog category five fabulous blogs were nominated:
I may be slightly biased in that I contribute to two of these blogs (AgentGenius and HomeGain). Benn and Lani are responsible for much of the success of AgentGenius, and while I can’t speak for them, I’m sure they’d graciously contribute the success to the AG contributors. Louis at Homegain would follow right along. It has been my pleasure to work with Benn, Lani, Louis and all of the AgentGenius and HomeGain contributors.
Biased as I may be, I can attest that the other three nominees are all more than worthy to be named finalists.
Marc Davidson (and Brian Boero) at 1000Watt are brilliant writers and innovative thinkers. I’ve had a couple of conversations with Marc and can tell you that he’s as nice a guy as he is smart.
Speaking of nice and wicked smart, Michael Wurzer at FBS fits that mold to a T. For those in the Phoenix area, Michael is the CEO of the company that is bringing us our shiny new FlexMLS system.
I don’t know Barry Ritholtz at Big Picture blog, but I can tell you one thing for sure — if it’s financial info you are looking for, you need look no further.
Congrats to all the Inman Innovator Finalists in the Blog category! (and all the nominees in the other categories too, several of which I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and/or corresponding with.) Whoever ends up winning it will be deserving, and beating out some very tough competition.
