Share the love!

Help your favorite blogger by asking your friends & family to vote for them via social media.

The Scoring System

The five bloggers with the highest number of votes will be the official semi-finalists per category. A panel of judges will then review each of the semi-finalists and select the winner of the category. Each semi-finalist will be judged by a panel of experts on the following criteria:

1. Aesthetics: Judges will score each blog’s general style, design, layout, color scheme, and photo quality.

2. Writing: Judges will score each blog for its writing style, flow, and readability.

3. Content: Judges will score how a blog’s topics relate to each other; and will also be looking for unique content that is creative and delivers value.
