This is a good point, and goes along with something I just recently saw:


A Erlang "blogging contest."  The winner just gets a book, and some
praise.  I think praise goes a long way.  I remember when
daily-python-url started picking up my blog, I was totally ecstatic.

I think a cash prize is good, and should be pursued, but really simple
editorial "this blog entry is good and deserves praise and attention"
could go a long way.

That said, I don't know how to implement it.  Maybe a "best of the
blogs" heading on the python.org site?  I know we have
planet.python.org, but we certainly could distill "best of."
