2007 Catholic Blog Awards

For those interested, the 2007 Catholic Blog Awards are now accepting nominations.

The way it works is as follows. You register your account and then submit your nominations for your favourite blogs in one or multiple categories.

Which blogs end up on the final list for voting for the actual award depends upon how many nominations it receives in a particular category. So in other words, if only one or two people nominate a particular blog for a particular category, it will not appear on the final list for voting who will win the award. But if 100 or 200 people nominate a particular blog in that category, then it is more likely to appear on the final voting list.

In other words, how many nominations a blog is given is just as important as the final vote, because it won't appear on the final voting list if a great number of people don't nominate a blog.

I think in the past people have misunderstood this part of the process. It isn't the case that one person nominating a blog will result in the ability to vote for it.

So if you feel strongly about the NLM or another Catholic blog appearing on the list to vote for, then you need to get over there and nominate it for a relevant category.

The categories are:

Best Overall Catholic Blog
Best Designed Catholic Blog
Best Written Catholic Blog
Best New Catholic Blog
Best Individual Catholic Blog
Best Group Blog
Best Blog by Clergy/Religious/Seminarian
Funniest Catholic Blog
Smartest Catholic Blog
Most Informative & Insightful Catholic Blog
Best Apologetic Blog
Best Political/Social Commentary Catholic Blog
Best Insider News Catholic Blog
Most Spiritual Blog

You may nominate a blog for more than one category so far as I can tell. Happy nominating!
