People following us on Twitter and Facebook are aware that we launched our first ever blogging awards on Monday morning in partnership with b-metro Magazine. It’s gotten a great deal of traffic so far though it hasn’t been mentioned by many people. We wanted to make sure that those of you not on those networks understood the basics.
There are two separate sets of categories – a readers choice poll and a juried contest that will also contain a readers choice component beginning August 30. Nominations for both sets of categories will close next Friday, August 27, at 11:59 p.m. CT. We’re asking effective the publishing of this post that those submitting readers choice nominations fill out at least three (3) of the categories per submission (you’re allowed to submit one set of nominations per day). Those submitting their blogs for consideration of in the juried categories are required to submit an entry fee of $10 per category.
Those of you looking for suggestions on what blogs and posts to nominate will be interested in checking out our new blog aggregator, http://bhamterminal.com/managingnews. It’s a work in progress but we think it will become quite useful to folks in the coming weeks and months. We’re looking forward to adding more blogs to the list and hearing which ones are your favorites!
