I am no longer blogging here at Little Nuances, but I would love for you to join me on my author website www.leewarren.info.

The 2011 Bloggies

The 11th annual Weblog Awards – affectionately referred to as, “The Bloggies” (not to be confused with the Weblog Awards that Little Nuances was a finalist for in 2006 and 2007 – those awards are now defunct) – began taking nominations for the best blogs in various categories on January 1. The nomination process ends January 16.

Only one ballot per person is allowed, but each ballot must nominate at least three different blogs (one blog can be nominated for multiple categories, but you still need to nominate at least two other blogs somewhere on your ballot). I’m going to spend some time this weekend working on my ballot and I hope to encourage a few fellow bloggers in the process.

While I tend to believe good blogs are found and read as the blogger builds a solid body of work, sometimes bloggers get discouraged when the numbers aren’t where they think they should be and they pull the plug. Being nominated for a blogging award is the equivalent of a boss or a co-worker saying, “Good job!” and you know how far that can take you.

If you’d like to submit a ballot, here’s a link. Just start at the top, read the instructions, and work your way down the page – nominating at least three different blogs (total) in the various categories – and at the bottom of the page, you’ll find the “Submit your nominations!” button.

Don’t feel at all obligated to nominate Little Nuances. There are a ton of great blogs out there. Pick a few and nominate them. If you want to nominate Little Nuances, the best fitting categories are probably: best topical blog, best designed blog, best writing of a weblog, best-kept secret weblog, lifetime achievement (for blogs that began before January 1, 2006).
