It’s time for the annual South African Blog Awards 2010. I’ve been a judge or involved somehow for nearly as long as I’ve been using WordPress but this year Chris Rawlinson & JP Naude have things pretty much under control.
What can we expect from this years awards? With sponsors like New24, Ogilvy and Kulula there should be some good prizes up for grabs. I’m sure other sponsors will be getting on board late as they have in the past.
We can also expect many of the bloggers who’d like your nominations writing posts containing empty promises of how if they’ll blog more or better if you vote for them. You can also expect a deluge of facebook status updates and vote for me in the SA Blog Awards tweets. I did that last night already. Getting through the to the final voting round is all about the numbers of nominations you receive so expect a month of non stop SA Blog Awards buzz.
There have been complaints about the UI and UX and you might find once you click on a nominate me badge you receive the following message: Thank you! You have nominated www.my blog here.domain But you haven’t actually completed your nomination yet. You are now required to nominate 2 more blogs, or a total of 3 blogs in the SA Blog Awards 2010.
What are the first 3 blogs that come to mind? Why not nominate them? Once you have entered 3 nominations you are then required to enter your email address and the captcha code followed by clicking submit. We’re not there yet, now you need to click the confirmation link via email you will receive a few minutes later.
Now you have successfully nominated 3 blogs in the South African Blog Awards 2010. Nice and easy 🙂
