Award Session Cancelled

Due to several factors, I have decided to postpone the the 2012 Blogger's Choice Awards indefinitely. In fact, it's just as well we refer to it as being cancelled for this year at this point. It's unfortunate I know, but there has been a serious lack of interest from the community (and visitors) in sending nominations for the awards. While this is the main reason for my cancelling at this time, it is not the only one. I personally do not have the time to dedicate to the session right now, and without the nominations, the job of getting everything ready is considerably more difficult. So, what I've decided to do was regroup, focus on what I can take care of around these parts over the year, and then get back to this whole award thing at the end of 2013. Taking a year off is perhaps not the worst of ideas anyway, so that's what I am sadly going to do.

Having said that, PLEASE NOTE that nominations will remain open all year. You can leave you choices in any of the applicable threads (like this one, or the one before this one) or email them to nlblogroll @ gmail.com. Every nomination will be given equal consideration!

Official 2012 Award Nominations

This post is dedicated to the official nominations for the 2012 NL Blogger's Choice Awards, and nominating a blog for this year's award session is easy. All you have to do is reply to this thread with the URL you wish to nominate (or feel free to send a email to nlblogroll @ gmail.com). It's as easy as that, though we do encourage you telling us why you'd like to nominate that particular blog.

There are three rules for submissions:

1) The nomination must be a current member of the NL BlogRoll, in either of the categories.

2) We are asking that you do NOT nominate your own blog, as that sort of defeats the purpose of nominations. We strongly encourage you to convince someone else to nominate you, but just not doing so yourselves.

3) No Anonymous Nominations will be accepted, but if you'd rather not log in to submit your choice, then please email us at nlblogroll @ gmail.com.

We'll be running this nomination period for approximately one month, bringing us to mid December with the actual awards session coming in January 2013.

Now, get nominating!
