Most Creative Nominees!

VOTING IS CLOSED CONGRATULATIONS TO CREATIVE CHATTER FOR WINNING :)

Here's how it's going to run down: there will be a poll at the bottom of this post and you simply just vote for your favorite blog out of all of these arguments! :) Each day, there will be THREE voting rounds posted, so you'll have to scroll down and see all the posts for yourself. Each voting round lasts for exactly a week and once every voting round it done, winners will be announced, and prizes (if you would like to donate contact us. Please remember that if we don't get enough prizes we won't be giving ANY out at all) shipped out—that is, if the winner wants a prize.

For the Most Creative category, we asked that each nomination had a third party submit a few sentences on how they were a creative blogger. (Note: the bloggers who did not submit an "About Me" portion don't have the about portion included.

Creative Chatter
"Creative Chatter is a remarkable blog because it balances the reality of a writer's life with the fun of imagination. With discussion that ranges from the ideas behind her novels to videos about her books, Kate Lynd keeps it fresh and uses a number of ways to express her ideas and share inspiration with readers. So much more than a platform for promotion, Creative Chatter is truly creative in how it embraces a wide variety of ways to talk about literature and provide an honest look into what it means to be an author."

- Gwen Perkins
Close Encounters With the Night Kind
Nikki has such an imaginative mind. She is always thinking of new ways to promote books or to hold contests on her blog. She is full of energy and enthusiasm for everything connected to fiction and she makes everything fun for both authors and readers alike. She excels at brainstorming new ideas for promotion and new ways of looking at problems. I feel very honored that she has included me in many promotions and I love working with her.

GraveTells
GraveTells: Paranormal Romance News & Reviews
As I fairly new author, I can tell you that GraveTells has been an invaluable source for me in reaching new readers. The website does its own graphics, and they’re amazing. For instance, my book, Hunted, was chosen as GraveTells book of the month for May, and the award they created to put on the book looks fantastic. I’ve used the graphic all over the web. The hero in Hunted was also chosen for a guest interview on GraveTells, and more work was put into that blog by the interviewer than any other interview I’ve taken part in before. Hunted is book 3 in my series, and I’ve been interviewed quite a bit. Plus, it was a lot of fun—for me as an author, and for many of the readers. The creativity of the interview took the whole process to a higher level. I highly recommend GraveTells for the most creative blogger award. :)

Developing a highly creative blog involves taking what already exists and making it one’s own. GraveTells Reviews book blog has embraced this challenge and excelled at building its own unique identity among the zillions of book blogs out there vying for readership. The name alone is…no pun intended…telling. This paranormal fiction review site utilizes a fresh play on words: ‘Grave’ to highlight the paranormal slant to their reviews and ‘Tells’ a way of explaining, which could be a double entendre relating to the reviews themselves or the stories they review or both. GraveTells extends the paranormal theme throughout the site with thoughtful use of graphics, color, and font, and has demonstrated a creative flair for quality content through their unique interactive interview style, monthly book awards, and in-depth reviews. As an author, GraveTells has helped me showcase my work in a way I could never have myself. Their thorough and intelligent reviews of my novels give readers a deeper look at my work, and as a debut author (i.e. a risk to new readers), this is a priceless benefit.

Parajunkee
Book Blogging at it's finest!
Not only is Rachel of Parajunkee’s View a design superstar, but she’s a networking Guru, too. She’s become the lighthouse for new and veteran bloggers alike, allowing them a single point – a meeting place – with her ingenuous memes like Feature & Follow Friday, so bloggers can find and meet one another. And instead of making them any old memes, she’s creatively twisted them up, wrung them out and given us Social Hops and Follow Hops with featured bloggers. Rachel is always full of new ideas – or a new twist on an old one – in her BB101 posts, and, in short, she is the most creative blogger I know.

From: Jennifer @ The Bawdy Book Blog - Where Reality Is Someone Else's Imagination

About the Blog:
Parajunkee’s View, started in August of 2009, primarily focuses on books, fiction genre books to be specific. But, over time the blog has morphed into a community outlet for much more, including movies (usually based on books), television shows and other entertaining, artistic outlets. The blog also features tutorials for other bloggers on how to improve their own blogs, and memes that target improving page views and networking.
