To refresh your memory, the Bloggy Awards is an event quite like the Grammys, Tonys, Emmys, Teen Choice Awards, etc. etc. only for bloggers and it will be held online. It will last approximately a month, and the winners of the awards get bragging rights of being the best at their category.
To nominate, email in your choices to: email@example.com. You can email in exactly THREE blog choices for each category. Please format your nominations as so:
Category NameYou can nominated up to three blogs for all the categories, but please make sure to try and vary your choices. It would be no fun if a blog was nominated for every single award. Additionally, try to highlight some smaller blogs, too. Don't just go for the blogs with the most followers, try to nominate smaller blogs. The point of the Bloggy Awards is to let everybody know about some new blogs and also share the blogger love.

Please note that IF YOU NOMINATE ONE BLOG FOR MULTIPLE AWARDS, your nomination will be deleted. We don't want one blog being nominated for all the awards, and we want to recognize as many blogs as possible, and even if you really like a blog, please don't list the one blog for EVERY category where it's remotely applicable. That is diminishing many other people's chances to be nominated and get to be an official nominee.
Also, if you would like to be an official nominee for a category, find your blogger friends and ask them to nominate you! Try to tell as many people as possible about these and we really want these to be special and really successful!
Once nominations close, we will tally up the votes, publicly announce the official nominees, and then send the nominees a set of questions. For each category, there will be a different set of questions we ask for the nominees. We will then publish the questions here and the official voting for the final winner will be open for a week. Simple right?
The categories are:
- Well-known blogger
- Best design
- Best reviews
- Most helpful
- Best breakout blog (Best new blog, meaning within six months)
- Best review for a contemporary book (For this, if you nominate somebody leave a link to their review)
- Best review for a paranormal book (For this, if you nominate somebody leave a link to their review)
- Best review for a dystopian book (For this, if you nominate somebody leave a link to their review)
- Best review for a sci-fi book (For this, if you nominate somebody leave a link to their review)
- Best review for a fantasy book (For this, if you nominate somebody leave a link to their review)

We really want this one to be successful, so please try and tweet and spread the word about this so as many blogs as possible will participate! Please check out the "About the Bloggy Awards" page for more information and "FAQ" if you have any other questions.
As of now, the winner will probably only get bragging rights for winning the award and a web button to go with it, but we are working on getting swag out to the winners if any authors are willing to participate.
If you have any questions, feel free to tweet us or email us.
Again, we really hope this is successful and don't be afraid to help spread the word, ask questions, and nominate people!
Note: Even if somebody says they don't accept awards, you can still nominate them. This isn't a typical awards thing where you pass it on to other bloggers, this is just spreading blogger love and recognizing the blogs who've gone above and beyond. :)
