    This is an awesome project you have going on! What a cool way to showcase some really great designs. I don’t think I can even pick a winner out of some of these match-ups.

  • How to make money online, March 31, 2008

    I agree with the last comment, it’s hard to choose between some of them.
    They’re all very lovely. :]

  • James Abney-Hastings, March 31, 2008

    This is such a great idea!

    I too am struggling with some of the votes, felt very guilty about voting against some wonderful sites!

  • web pixy, March 31, 2008

    There are some really good blog designs! It’s so hard for me to choose for which one to vote but I will pick one:)

  • David Airey, March 31, 2008

    This is certainly where I leave the running. Paul’s ‘Reflections’ design is 10 times more detailed than mine, and his coding skills a great deal better too.

    Thanks again, Steven, for putting me up in the first place.

  • Bob Galmarini, March 31, 2008

    This is a great post. Nice to see so many great blog designs. I don’t know about some of the pairings. It is difficult to put sites like a list apart against anyone. I feel bad for Loon Design to have to go up against the king. Great blog though Loon.

  • Biodun, March 31, 2008

    wow… lovely designs! voted for one despite all being very great.
    Nice post.

  • Tony Chester, March 31, 2008

    I just have to say that Viget’s blog was awesome & I too felt bad for Loon.

  • Edinmissouri, March 31, 2008

    One day i will leave the confines of blogger and find my blog’s true potential :)

  • Rose / interhuss, March 31, 2008

    Thanks for this…some of these are really cool.

  • Vandelay Design, March 31, 2008

    Thanks to everyone who is voting and commenting. You guys are all making this a successful event!

    David,
    You’re only down 60 to 55 at this point, still with a few hours to go. You never know what will happen.

    Bob,
    The pairings don’t really mean much, especially after the first round. However they fall is how they meet up. So don’t read too much into which blogs are facing each other.

  • Cedric, April 1, 2008

    Hi there!
    Very nice designs!

    Can I ask you what you think about mine? http://www.info-graphistes.com/

  • Adam, July 17, 2009

    Sweet Designs. Love it. Mean it.
