(L-R: Megan Carpentier, Tracie Egan, and Sadie Stein)

In the wake of Gawker Media’s latest layoffs, we’re hearing more about what went down at the blog network.

miss_america.jpgApparently it’s the time of year where everyone chooses their favorite female blogger based on the always venerable quality of sex appeal! First off Playboy.com is asking you to help them choose the web’s hottest woman blogger. The lucky winner will get the opportunity to pose for Playboy. Yep. Currently video blogger Brigitte Dale (who apparently is of legal age regardless of what her picture might suggest) is riding high (no pun intended) with 27% of the vote, amongst a group that includes Amanda Congden, Violet Blue and Veronica Belmont.

Amanda Congden also appears on this list, along with HuffPo’s Olivia Zaleski and Jezebel’s Tracie Egan, but topping it off is LA Times blogger Christie St. Martin. For those of you who would prefer a slightly less naked round-up, NorthxEast has just posted a list of its “Fifty Most Influential ‘Female’ Bloggers” included here are the likes of Ana Marie Cox, Michelle Malkin, Rachel Sklar and Arianna Huffington, who ranks second.
