Whew, what a crazy round of voting that was! So much fun-and I’ve painstakingly broken it down into the top 3 for each section (thank goodness google docs summarize responses!) So please take the time to vote for the final winner from the three below!
Step 1: Nominations – Complete!
Step 2: Voting – Complete!
Step 3: Final Voting
Final voting will last exactly 1 week, starting at 7AM on Thursday, March 12th and ending at NOON/12PM MST on Thursday, March 19th. There will be a new post with the top three contestants in each category listed for final voting during this time.
Step 4: Awards
The Awards post will go up on Wednesday, March 25th listing the final winners in each category! Winners will all get a special badge to put on their blog if they wish, and a special extra prize which is outlined as follows:
Niche Blog Awards: 1 month 450×100 ad space (scheduled in advance throughout the year)
Non-Niche Blog Awards: 1 month 450×200 ad space (scheduled in advance throughout the year)
Best Overall Blog: 1 month 450×300 ad space (scheduled in advance throughout the year)
Post Awards: Option to re-post their winning post here as a guest post (with a feature introduction about them in the post and links back to their blog and social media)
Social Media Awards: Twitter & Facebook features on the My So-Called Chaos pages.
Small Business Awards: 1 month 450×100 ad space (scheduled in advance throughout the year)
Vote for one person in each category. Since this is just voting I’ve made all categories mandatory-so if you don’t know any of them in the category feel free to go ahead and check out their links and choose, or feel free to just choose one, however you prefer to do it. (I hope you’ll take the time to get to know them though-that’s half of what this is all about! :)If you did not make it to the top 3 please don’t be sad. I promise you were SO close-why? Because EVERYONE was so close. The voting was very tight this year (with nearly 300 voters) so some people barely made it in over others! I recommend you go ahead and still vote, and I really hope you feel awesome for making it into the nominations overall. You are amazing!
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THIS IS ALL IN GOOD FUN. There were some concerns shared last year about people inflating numbers, etc. But guys, this is just a fun little thing… Please don’t stress about it in anyway. Here are some simple do’s and don’ts.
DO vote for someone in each category. Take the time to find new blogs, or just select someone.
DO feel free to vote for yourself.
DO feel free to vote for your friends.
DO feel free to grab the button button above and post it on your blog, sidebar, etc. linking back here.
DO ask your friends to vote for you.
DON’T go through and vote multiple times just to vote for yourself. I mean-that’s super time consuming.
