Before I continue, I’d like to give credit where credit is due. Every year the wonderful Karen from A Peek at Karen’s World does bloggy awards, and without her devotion and inspiration I never would have thought these up! Thank you Karen for inspiring me, and being okay with me branching out from it! You’re the best!
I’ve decided that every year around my blogiversary, I’m going to take nominations, then voting, and give out Best of Blog Awards based on the recommendations from my readers and visitors! My blogiversary is February 18th, and I’m planning a HUGE giveaway to go along with this (if you’re interested in participating let me know-I still have slots for that open too!) and I am SO excited!
Dates & Steps
Step 1: Nominations – Nominations will be open for exactly one week. They will run from today (Thursday, February 6th) through Thursday, February 13th. So make sure you get your nominations in quick if you want your friends to be considered! Also feel free to encourage your friends/readers to vote for you as well! The more nominations, the more fun we can have!
Step 2: Voting I will go through the nominations and pull the top 10 in each category and put them up for voting. Voting will be open for exactly one week from Monday, February 17th to Monday, February 24th.
Step 3: Final Contestant Voting I will go through the voting results from the previous round and narrow it down to the top 3 in each category and put them back up for voting. Final voting will last exactly one week and will be open from Thursday, February 27th through Thursday, March 6th.
Step 4: Awards Ceremony The final awards will be handed out here on the blog on Wednesday, March 12th! Every winner will get a nifty littler custom button/award that they can display on their blog if they’d like (Stating that they won the award!) and a FREE small ad* on My So-Called Chaos. (The free small ads will be for throughout the year, 3-4 bloggers per month scheduled in advance.)
Make sure you post LINKS! If I’m not familiar with a blog I need a way to find it.
There’s a Giveaway too!
As an added bonus I’m giving one lucky person who nominates a $10 Starbucks eGift Card. This is open worldwide (if you don’t have Starbucks in your country accommodations will be made) and ends when the nominating ends at 12AM on 2/13/14. Good luck and have fun nominating!
