If you are a blogger yourself, do you like to nominate or be nominated for a bloggers awards? Do you think they are fair and do you ask your followers to vote for you to help you win or do you prefer not to ask?
If you are a reader , do you like to participate in them and vote for your fave blogger in blog awards? Do you think being asked to vote for your favourite blogger should be rewarded, or are you happy to just do it because you love reading their blog so much and can appreciate the effort they put into it?
I'm asking this because there are always awards and competitions around and I wondered how others felt about them? I personally love seeing the lists because it helps me find new people to follow and read. I'm always hoping to find someone new on the list because lets face it, it's not like we don't have enough to read already! I don't mind voting for people in weblog awards and if I am nominated, I don't either! I'm also always proud of my blogging buddies who are nominated and win these awards because it is so nice to be recogonised for what you do. Plus have you seen some of the prizes these comps have up for grabs,they are awesome!
For example, I have been off the radar with blogging lately as we've had a lot going on that I missed all the Kidspot Top 50 Bloggers news. Don't worry though because if you are interested in finding some awesome new blogs to follow (like me) you should check the list as there are 50 amazing bloggers to be discovered. I've got to be honest and I admit that I secretly wished I was nominated for this award too, because imagine how many people I would be able to connect with and I really need to buy a Ford Territory (I'll tell you why later!) and well having one to drive for a year while I keep saving would just make things a little big easier on us at the moment. The winner also gets to go to BlogHer!!!!!!!!! can you read the excitement from me on the page? For those of you who don't know what BlogHer is... well it is one of the biggest, most grandest places on earth for a female blogger to go. You get to learn all things blogging and social media, brands and lots more to make you a better writer! Okay for the non bloggers out there I sound like a totally nutcase right now, but I bet you the bloggers reading this post are totally getting me....right?! Lucky for 5 of the top 50 they have been given the opportunity to drive the Ford Territory for a week (I think) and share with us their adventures.
