Website awards were ubiquitous in the 90s and early/mid 2000s. You've certainly noticed if you've spent
any time browsing old sites. Maybe you've even applied for/won/given out a few yourself.
the groovy site award
the groovy site award has pretty straightforward requirements. have a personal website that you built yourself. this doesn't mean slap a bunch of animated gifs on a star background and call it a day, although i am obviously a fan of both tropes. ideally you have a few pages of content, and have put some effort into creating a web home. you don't need to have a meticulously curated web empire, and i'm sure as hell not gonna peep your code. just have some heart.
magick's cozy site award
magick's cozy site award is for sites that have that special something. the ones that leave me feeling inspired, connected, or excited. the sites that make me feel like the personal web isn't a relic of the past, it's something alive today. something worth nurturing. i don't want to say this one is ~harder~ to earn, although my cat does have high standards. again, not gonna peep yr code. it doesn't hurt to have an attractive site, but i'm looking for something deeper.
