Welcome to the 2005 Business Blogging Awards!

Welcome to the 2005 Business Blogging Awards, presented by InsideBlogging!

As business blogging has taken off in 2004, and looks to explode in 2005, we figured it was time to inaugurate some fun awards to reward all those hard-working business bloggers. After all, we can’t let the online diarists have all the fun, can we?

Here’s how the awards will work:

  • We’re accepting nominations until January 24. Anyone can nominate any blogger in any category
  • Additionally, feel free to suggest new categories if there’s one you’d like to see
  • To nominate a blogger, simply place a comment in the nominations thread. Feel free to nominate as many blogs as you’d like (including your own) for as many categories as you’d like
  • A panel of judges will whittle the nominee list for each category down to a minimum of three and a maximum of six nominees
  • Voting will open at 12:00pm PST on January 26. You’ll be able to vote once per day per category
  • Voting will continue until 12:00pm PST on Feburary 9
  • Winners will be announced on February 10. Winners will be contacted by email

We need companies to sponsor awards. We’re not looking for anybody to give away cars or anything–just a small prize that the blogger might use and enjoy. If you’re an ISP, how about a year’s worth of free hosting? If you’re in PR, how about a free press release? If you’re Amazon, how about a gift certificate? If you’re Google, free searching for…ah, never mind.

If you’re interested in sponsoring the awards, choose one or more categories and email us.
