Edit: Slightly modified this post as it appeared I was going ahead with the below suggested categories. Nothing has been decided yet.
From the comments on this post there have been about 13 additional categories suggested. These are:
- Best Female Blog
- Best Podcast
- Best Parenting/Family Blog
- Best Designed Blog
- Best Sport & Recreation Blog
- Best Food Blog
- Best New Oldperson
- Best News/Current Affairs Blog
- Best Education Blog
- Blog with the best interface and most useful features
- Best Niche Blog
- Best Lifestyle Blog
- Best Charity Blog
Have I left any out? Suggest more if you like. No decision will be made on these yet but I would like opinions on whether an additional 13 or so on to a list of 18 already is enough or too many? Are 30 categories too many? We had 13 last time for the awards. That’s going to be a lot more acceptance speeches compared to last year.
In regards to suggesting a category, I would much rather seeing a category being formed if there at least 10 blogs that would qualify to be in this category. That way we can at least see some competition from the long list to short list section.
