Best of 2019 Blogging Awards

Well. It appears to be two weeks past when I orginally hoped to have the post up. Busyness and sickness have kept me away, but now I’m ready to give you all the many links for you to check out and vote for. SO. MANY. LINKS. Not as many as last year which I’m kinda happy about because this was plenty right here. 😛

Let’s see here. The asterisks beside the nominations stand for how many additional nominations they received. And one or two of the nominations aren’t on here because the content was not age-friendly. Some of the blog might have non-appropriate content, I can’t really read through all the posts, but I did try and check most of the posts I hadn’t read before.

Alright that’s all! Go vote! Vote based on how great you think the post was and how well it fits the category. (i.e. a strictly photography post might not fit the poetry category)

"Best of" Awards

Best of 2019 Blogging Awards [Nominations]

Hey there!

 

Alright guys, I’m going to be doing the “Best of” Awards over here on this site, because I don’t want to clog up my other blog with these. So that also means that it’s not going to be seen as much, even though I will link to it in an upcoming post, because this blog doesn’t have a lot of followers. If you’d like to share this and tell your blogger friends, that’d be great!

What are the “Best of” Awards?

The “Best of” Awards are annual blogging awards, held by me myself and I. (Megan, from A Barefoot Gal.) They are basically a blog survey you can fill out to nominate your favorite blogs and bloggers. The survey will be followed by several polls in another post. There are 12 categories this year in which you nominate blogs, bloggers, posts, and all that good stuff. Feel free to peruse the previous award posts on my main blog to get an idea of how this goes!

How do I do this?

Click on the button below all of this explaining, and it’ll take you to the survey. Then you can pick a post/blog/blogger that you think is the best for that category and paste the URL into each box. You MUST link to the URL of the post/blog/blogger or I will have a rather hard time finding it. Also, you can’t just link to “exampleblogthingythatwouldwork.wordpress.com” for the “Lifestyle Post” category. AND please do not link to posts from your WordPress reader ’cause that DOESN’T WORK.

None of the categories are mandatory, so you don’t have to do every category. There’s nothing to stop you from it, but I would rather you not vote for/nominate yourself.

What’s after the survey?

The survey closes on December 28th, so the last day to nominate is the 27th. On the 29th or soon after I will post the next post: Best of 2018 Voting. There will be 12 polls with every post/blogger/blog that has been nominated for each category. Example:

Best Collab Blog Example
This was from 2016

I’ll link to each post/blogger/blog that was nominated right above the poll so you can visit the posts or blogs. If something was nominated more than once I’ll say that, and automatically give it extra points/votes for that.

When will the results be posted?

I’ll give you until January 8th to vote, so I will post the results soon after that.

Is there a prize?

No, not really. But typically the sites and posts listed do get a lot of extra traffic. I’ll also make little “buttons” for the winners that they can display on their blog if they want to. But other than that, no. There’s not really a prize. But it should be fun! 🙂

Alrighty, I think that about covers it! There’s always the comment section if you all have any questions. Now, GO NOMINATE! And if you don’t mind, please leave a comment when you’re done so I can check and make sure it went through. It seems to be having problems with that.

THE SURVEY.

Thanks a bunch guys! Have a great Christmas!
