This will be a very different post of this kind. For a very special reason. Why? You will see in just a little bit…
Let’s put some effort into creating a good week and kick start it with a positive thought on your Monday morning. Let’s do it! Let’s kick off the week on a positive note!
- Mention something that you consider being good in the comments
- Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.
- Share this post and invite your followers as well.
Before I share my good thing with you I desperately need to do a happy dance…
Just do as many rounds as you like… but I really, really like to share my good news with you!!! Are you ready? Not yet? Okay, just keep happy dancing 😉
And when you are ready, here is what I like to share with you:
Of course it is my turn now to list my nominees for the different categories of the 2016 Blogs Of The Year.
- It is preferred if you nominate one blog/blogger per award, but if you’re finding this difficult, two should be the minimum.
- Share ALL NOMINATIONS in the comments to this post, or write a post that links to the original post (see link) so the votes can be counted.
- Please also link to your nominees blogs.
- Please tag your blog posts that relate to the awards with the hashtag #2016BloggerAwards.
- Results will be posted on 31 December.
Blogger of the Year:
A blogger that you feel has stood out this year as being very inspiring, kind, and who holds many of the qualities that you feel makes a fantastic blogger. This blogger can be one who you aspire to be and who’s personality traits cause them to, again and again, be seen as a central part of your blogging community, both to you and others.
My nomination for Blogger of the Year Jason at HarsH ReaLiTy
Blog of the Year
Through their posts, the blog which you nominate for this category will have made an impact on the community with their writing. Each aspect of the blog is well thought-out, and their posts are both creative and original. Content, appearance and the effect you think this blog has had on you as a person and other people should contribute to why you nominated them.
My nomination for Blog of the Year goes to Danny at Dream Big, Dream Often
Somebody who has always been there with a lovely word if you feel down. They do not judge you, and can always be relied on to say the sweetest things no matter the situation that you find yourself in. Their comments are ones that stick in your mind because of their kind words, and they are nice to everybody and anybody.
My nomination for Kindest Blogger goes to Vanbytheriver. Didn’t even have to think about that one…
Most Approachable Blogger
No matter the time of day or the amount of followers you have, you feel as if you can always talk to this blogger. Whether they have 10 followers or 10000, they do not make you feel unwelcome, and allow you to feel as if your opinions will be listened to. They’re friendly, and their personality makes it so that they are easy to have a conversation with.
My nomination for Most Approachable Blogger goes to Eric at All In A Dad’s Work
Best New Blogger
A person who has, despite not being in the Blogosphere for long, made an impact. This award is for those who have taken blogging in their stride, and right from the beginning, given it their all. They have firmly entrenched themselves within the community, emerging into blogging and not letting their ‘newbie’ status bother them.
I might come back to that one…
Most Positive Blog
The posts on this blog, or this blogger’s personality, lift your mood whenever you are not feeling your best. They could write inspirational posts, or have the personality that allows you to smile when they comment or speak to you; a simple post or conversation with them can make you happy.
No need to think about this one, my nomination for the Most Positive Blog goes to Erika Kind
Most Helpful Blogger
Somebody who has always striven to help anybody, in any situation. This can be through their posts, or through any contact you have had outside of blogging. They have always helped you when you needed any assistance or advice, whether that would be with blogging or any real life situations, and they go out of their way to offer you this help.
Best Looking Blog
When you look at this blog, it should be obvious that they’ve spent some time on making it look amazing. It can be through the way they’ve organised it, the design in general, the best pictures: whatever element they’ve put into their blog, they’ve done it incredibly well. Remember, beauty is subjective, so don’t feel worried that other people may disagree with you.
My nomination for the Best Looking Blog goes to Lucile De Godoy.
Most Relate -able Blog
Many of the posts that they write, you find yourself relating to. This can be because of their style of writing, or the stories that they share; when you read their blog, you think that you aren’t alone.
Most Creative Blogger
There are some people who have added wonderfully original ideas to the Blogosphere. These people have contributed awards, tags, challenges and anything else that has been very well created. As well as this, they could be a creative writer, artist or could be a musician – anything that showcases a talent, or brings something never brought before to the blogging world. This is flexible, so you can nominate 2 people if this one is especially difficult.
My nomination for the Most Creative Blogger award goes to Coach Daddy.
This blogger will never fail to make you laugh. Through what they say, their posts or how they interact with people, they put a permanent smile on your face and can have you in stitches. They can be unexpectedly funny, can say the strangest things, but the one thing that this person has is a brilliant sense of humor.
Hands down this one belongs to Linda at Nutsrok.
If you think that a blog/blogger should be recognized for an aspect of their blog/blogging personality that doesn’t fit a category on this list, then you can nominate them here, with the name of the aspect that they deserve and a comment. Though no one will necessarily ‘win’ this, those that stand out will be featured in the Results post.
And I would like to nominate Cyranny here just because I could have nominated her in almost all above and she would have deserved every single one of them.
And now, if we all do it right we will find out who will walk away with the big trophy at the end of this year 😉
