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.
