I'm just dropping a quick post, reminding everybody that voting will start July 25th, tomorrow, at 12:00 AM EST. All of the time will be measured in Eastern Standard Time (EST), so you can use this time converter to figure out when voting will start and end, depending on where you are in the world. Every day, there will be two posts that will go up, one at 12:00 AM EST sharp, and one a minute after, just so we can control which post goes up at which time, in which order. On each post, it'll say that voting lasts a week, from that day, 12:00 AM EST, to the next week, 11:59 PM EST. We will be closing the polls right then!
Additionally, there will be two categories that will go up each day, so refer to the nominee post for the schedule! The nominee information was due yesterday on July 23rd, but we are accepting late submissions, as long as you get in your information at least two days before your category goes up for voting. We aren't really strict on the information, and if you would like to drop out of your category, please email us as soon as possible. If your category has gone up and you email us after the fact, then there is nothing we can do unless you contacted us previously and we somehow did not receive the email.
To vote, there will be a poll at the bottom of the post, along with a reminder with when the voting ends. You can only vote once with that poll, and there is a way we can monitor the location where the votes come from. Here's a tester poll so you can see what the voting will look like:
We hope you're all excited for the voting round, and thank you so much for all of the support! We know that these awards can be controversial, and we thank everybody, even the ones against it, because you are all so nice about it <33

PS—the 2013 Bloggy Awards will, in fact, be the last Bloggy Awards. Nikki and I have decided together that we don't want to pursue these further, but we do have another idea lined up for 2014, so don't forget to look forward to that!
