12th Annual Weblog Awards (aka The Bloggies)

Coming next week on The Militant Writer: How to promote your published book — an interview with an author whose books are selling like hotcakes! In the meantime. . . 

How to nominate anyone’s blog for The Bloggies. Deadline Jan 15, 2012 (And if you don’t nominate mine, I’ll never know)


THIS Sunday, January 15 10 p.m. EST is the deadline for entries in the 12th Annual Weblog Awards, aka the 2011 Bloggies.

Each entry must include nominations of THREE distinct weblogs. This means that if you enjoyed this blog, and would like to nominate The Militant Writer (maryww.wordpress.com) in the “well written” or “topical” category (and in any other categories you might consider appropriate, such as best Canadian, etc. – because each blog can be entered in all appropriate categories), you can also nominate your own blog!!!! And your best friend’s blog!! Or even a blog you just like to read!

Of course, if you don’t have your own blog, or a best friend who blogs, or don’t read blogs, you could nominate one of my other blogs as your second and/or third choices. For example, my recent series of travel posts about India at I Am All Write (e.g., http://iamallwrite.wordpress.com/2012/01/10/watch-listen-learn-india-15-final-thoughts/) could be nominated for best travel or best writing or best Canadian or whatever. And then there’s my book review blog: http://marywwaltersbookreviews.wordpress.com/ That makes three. If you need them.

Here are the Bloggies Rules, reprinted from the Bloggies page

  • Any pages with dated entries that existed at some point during the year 2011 are eligible.
  • Only one nomination ballot and one finalist ballot may be submitted per person.
  • E-mail addresses are required to vote. You must use your own address and confirm the verification e-mail.
  • If you verify a second ballot, your first one will be replaced.
  • In the nomination phase:
    • URLs are required.
    • Your ballot must contain at least three unique nominees.
    • Weblogs may be nominated for multiple categories.
    • Nominees must suit the category they are placed in.
    • Weblogs may win a category over multiple years a maximum of three times.
