So what’s next?

To let those new to this Blog Awards business know what’s happening:

Judging is about to start. It’ll run for about a week. Round 1 of judging will see all sites judged on general criteria. This will create a “long” list for each category.

For those blog owners who show up in multiple categories in the longlists you will have to choose which category you want to be in and your blog is moved forward into the next round of judging in that category. If you don’t want to make the choice we’ll randomly select one of the categories.

This will then create a finalists list, the winner of each category will be announced on the night.

Ticket Reservation:
We’ll be opening up reservation and ticket sales in the next while. Tickets will be priced at 15 euros.

  4. White Rabbit says:

    I’m still confused so I’m just going to stick my Newbie colours to my chest and ask to be considered for the Personal category then
