I've just gone in and nominated AWatkins' blog "Writes With Feathers" for best animal blog - I'll come back with the link when it's up. :)

AWatkin's Blogger's Choice link: http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/1188

Yes - I'm serial posting here - I've had a thought (dangerous, I know) Shouldn't some of our blogs be nominated??? Shouldn't we be getting out the vote for the AW Bloggers?? Who's with me!!!??

I get a bit excited sometimes...I'll go have a nice cup of tea and rest now.

I never get nominated for one of these so I nominated myself (Ghost Stories)for these four categories:

Best Blog About Stuff
http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/1453

Freakiest Blogger
http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/1133

The "Blogitzer"
http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/1136

Good Luck to the rest of you that are nominated!

I've voted for anyone who posted their link too. I agree Dawno, more AWers should be nominated. There's no harm in nominated yourself so register, nominate and post your link here.

Thanks for your support guys. I'm slowly climbing the ladder.

Dawno
04-09-2007, 10:23 AM
Well, I would have gone and nominated more folk, but my power went down at 3 pm today and just got back on. I'll see what havoc I can wreak (just kidding!!) in the next few days - all our blogs are FABULOUS and deserve recognition!

bsolah
04-09-2007, 10:44 AM
Yeah, it'd be cool to have AWers winning more awards.

Talia
04-09-2007, 12:52 PM
Absolutely
I voted for Andrea
I'll come back and check to see who else is nominated

I'll trade ya!

I'm up for a couple too:

http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/919 ( I don't have a chance - ProBlogger will win, but whatever.)

http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/918 (Not exactly a business blog....but I'll take it.)

good plan, hopefully someone from here can win something!!!

bsolah
04-10-2007, 09:52 AM
DTNg, I voted for you. Thanks for your vote. I'm catching up to the top one, but someone else passed me overnight.

I noticed your leading 'Best business blog' - congrats.

Thanks Jessi.

I've been nominated in three places. http://gillpolack.livejournal.com for the Blogitzer (what is a blogitzer? it's a word I haven't encountered before) and http://www.foodpast.com for best educational and best food. I'm not sure where the links are to the specific places, though. I was doing really well on links and things earlier, but I got myself tangled five minutes ago and still need to untangle.

I'll check out all your blogs there tomorow - I intend to do all my voting at once :).

I've been nominated in three places. http://gillpolack.livejournal.com for the Blogitzer (what is a blogitzer? it's a word I haven't encountered before)

When you click on that category it says this at the top:

"This award will be presented to the blogger who demonstrates the best writing ability on his or her blog."


Thanks everyone for your votes! :)

Talia
04-12-2007, 02:02 PM
cool! I'll check out Gillian's and see if there is anyone else I can add to my voting

The word 'Blogitzer' is a play on the 'Pulitzer prize.' I didn't get it at first but it's a very clever idea I think.

I thought I was making in roads and even keeping up with some of the main blogs like DailyKos.com but it seems I've dropped down a little bit.

I'm in the health category, if anyone would like to toss a vote my way.

I'm off to cast some votes myself :)

Thanks - Pulitzer/Blogitzer makes sense :). I'm going back to check out AW nominees :).

I think my bid for Best Political blog is finally over. Rose O'Donnell's blog and a feminist blog seem to have broken from the pack considerably and just overnight too.

Both are relatively left-wing so I'm not as fussed as I would be if a right-winger won it.

Talia
04-14-2007, 03:27 AM
I don't stand a chance in the health section although I haven't asked my subscriber list to vote yet. So maybe I can make a late run for it???

I'm up for three. (I'm also in shock over the second two)

http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/3599

That's for the Blogitzer; you can follow from there for the other two.

I'd be surprised to NOT see a lot of AWers on this list. Good luck, everyone! May we all get great exposure and new devoted friends from this!

Talia, I'm a political activist that campaigns against the war and industrial relations laws. I'm a bit further left than these two. Sorry, thought you knew.

I'm just kidding. I voted for you anyway to support a fellow AW writer. I've seen your blog. I'm with you on the war but not on industrial relations. That's another matter LOL.

I've nominated my NZ Reality TV Blog for best entertainment blog (http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/4886) so appreciate any votes

WestofMars, Jessi et al I think I've voted for you all...

Update:
Also added it to best gossip blog (http://www.bloggerschoiceawards.com/blogs/show/4887)

It's fun and at the same time totally crazy.

If anyone wants to, you can nominate me for something... really don't care what. I was hoping for "worst blog ever" just for the hell of it, but it looks like that one is already decided.
I'll go check out all the AW blogs that are nominated and vote a few dozen times.

Can't be; the awards ceremony is June 2.

Hee, this is fun -- I've been trying to vote for everybody in this thread, and I don't think I've missed anyone. I love it, writers helping writers.

And way cool beans -- I've been nominated for the Blogitzer! :D I'd appreciate any and all votes y'all want to throw my way:

pellegrina when are the results of the literatti public?

Book Chronicle (http://www.bookchronicle.com/index.html) seems to be announcing the results of the Litty Awards on their own schedule -- last week, they announced the results of Best Publishing Litblogger, then back on April 1 they announced the results of Best Christian Litblogger, and from what I understand they have ten more awards yet to announce, so it'll probably be a while before we know all the results! :D

I'm doing okay in the Freakiest Blogger category (not surprised), but my blog was deleted from Best Education Blog along with others. Apparently, they weren't clear enough about blogs that could be nominated in that category. Its for blogs about school, homeschooling and other typical educational stuff.

Oh well..no big deal. Thanks for all the votes!

Talia
04-19-2007, 01:10 AM
that's interesting - I must go check my nominations and see if any have been deleted, and i'll double check that i voted for you in freakiest category

Talia
04-19-2007, 01:13 AM
I'm massively behind in the health section - oh well it's just a bit of fun

I haven't asked my readers to vote yet because the registration makes it a bit time consuming for people. Guess I should get over that.

My food history blog was removed from the Educational section. I asked about it and they didn't think that it as educational. I'm afraid the evil that is within me has gone round telling people that history is no longer considered educational.

I can understand why mine was deleted because heaven forbid people see the paranormal and folklore as anything educational, but I don't think your's should have been deleted.

It seems they have been doing quite a bit house cleaning. I had voted like 103 times and now it shows only 91.

If the education section is only designed for schools then i can see why they have deleted the blogs...

Yeah, I got an email regarding this and the fact that 2008 Blogger Award nominations are open. Personally, I'm not fussed by them anymore. They seem a little too rigged and unless you've got massive traffic then you have no chance.
