Although I am extremely passionate about blogging and am so thankful for the LfB community that has been growing over the years, I would be lying if I said blogging was easy. Although my day is always brightened by the new people I meet through blogging and the thoughtful comments left on LfB, blogging in general is still a field that not many people seem to understand or respect, and many long hours go into creating content that people unfamiliar with the blogging world don’t really seem to understand. Which is why I think that it is great when we can show our appreciation by highlighting what an incredible job our favorite bloggers are doing.
Haley over at Tea Party Beauty created the #BLOGGERBLOGAWARDS last year and is back bigger and better than ever. She has even started a twitter account for the awards so that everyone can keep up with all the latest news.
Here is what Haley has to say about the awards:
The Bloggers Blog Awards (in association with Jewellery Box this year) came about as a way for the community to celebrate bloggers, as no other knows just quite how much time and effort it takes to run a great blog. A magazine or company doesn’t know that most of your Saturdays are spent chasing the last little bit of sunshine just to get a good photograph, or that nearly 60% of your free time is spent tapping away at your laptop. Other bloggers know, and other bloggers are the ones who are best placed to judge the amazing blogs out there. So that’s what we do, we celebrate our fellow hard working and amazing bloggers. If you would like to nominate someone then keep on reading.. Psstttt also don’t forget to leave a reason for your nomination as these are included in the awards day booklet again this year due to how much the shortlisted people loved hearing why you voted for them, and I shall be tweeting some out too.
All entries must be submitted by 11.59pm (GMT) on 14th August
Only 1 vote per person (this is monitored & any suspicion of vote manipulation will result in all suspicious votes being discounted
How are the Votes Counted?
All votes are counted and verified by myself and an independent party
Once votes have been counted the top 3 with the highest number of votes will be shortlisted
The remaining 2 places on the shortlist will be selected by a panel of blogger judges – these are a panel of fellow bloggers (minimum 4 per category) who will read all the remaining blogs and score them based on set criteria, the scores will then be collated and the highest scorers shortlisted
Judges will not be allowed to judge in a category they can be nominated for i.e. I cannot judge the beauty category
The system has been set up to minimise vote manipulation and popularity contests – therefore a blogger with an amazing blog and 100 followers has just as much chance as a blogger with 10,000 followers. You only need 1 vote to be considered and even to go on to win.
Now is your chance to share the love in the blogging community and vote for your favorite bloggers. Of course, it would mean the world to me if you guys voted for me, but more importantly, regardless of who your favorite bloggers are, I urge you to vote so that you can show your appreciation for all your favorite bloggers and let them know they are doing an awesome job.
