    that’s a good + long + informative LIST πŸ™‚ How do I vote ?

  2. 2 Nita September 30, 2008 at 1:48 pm

    I am nominating my own post for the HowTo category.

    http://nitawriter.wordpress.com/2008/09/05/how-to-write-a-feature-article/

    Again, this is just the tip of the iceberg! πŸ™‚
    Also, haven’t had time to check out some other blogs but have sent the message to a few bloggers like Mad Momma, Indian Homemaker and Usha. Hope they nominate their posts soon.

  3. 3 Nita September 30, 2008 at 1:49 pm

    Poonam, we need a social issues category. India is full of social issues.

  4. 4 Poonam Sharma September 30, 2008 at 2:00 pm

    @Dinu: Polling will happen after nominations phase closes on Octobe 14. A final list of 6 nominations in each category will be drawn. I will put an online poll on the blog. Polling will start on October 15.

    @Nita: I will update the list with all your nomination by tomorrow. Do you think we need a separate category for social issues? THere is one public interest category already. What do you say?

  8. 10 Poonam Sharma September 30, 2008 at 2:14 pm

    @Anshul: You are kidding me! I will update the nominations list with your entries tomorrow.

    @Nita, Dinu: On public demand, I can add this category. What should I call it?

    @Dinu: For once, I am happy being spammed.

    wow, i’m nominated for two categories, awesome! thanks to whoeever who nominated me (want to reveal yourself?). πŸ™‚

    poonam, i’ll email you my nominations soon!

  14. 18 Nita September 30, 2008 at 4:45 pm

    social issues and public interest are entirely two different things.social issues would include issues of gender, sexuality, violence, etc. this category is essential, social issues I mean. this is infact a very critical category for Indian bloggers. my devaluation of cooking is in fact right for this category.
    public interest is according to the dictionary:

    “The public interest refers to the “common well-being” or “general welfare.” The public interest is central to policy debates, politics, democracy and the nature of government itself.”

  15. 19 Nita September 30, 2008 at 4:48 pm

    Call it Social Issues category. Sorry, I didn’t see your reply earlier so I thought you weren’t agreeing.

  16. 20 Nita September 30, 2008 at 4:51 pm

    And I am nominating Amit’s post:
    http://mashedmusings.wordpress.com/2008/07/27/the-price-of-being-different/
    for this category.
    Poonam, your post on the disabled is right here too. I am nominating it and you cannot refuse.

    I think it is time I make my first public nomination (for nosey people: the first private nomination was IdeaSmithy’s post on The Vagina Dialogues).

    I would like to nominate this post written by blog-friend LaBeletteRouge in California, for the Best post in the ‘how-to’ category, for its cutting wit and for its painful truthfulness.

    http:// labeletterouge.blogspot.com/2008/09/how-to-be-writer-and-sleep-like-french.html

    @Reema: Hopefully, you should be able to see your comments by now. I think I have updated all your nominations too. Remind me by email if I ahev missed any.

    @Pruya, Arvind, Vaibhav: Nominations noted!

    @Arvind: You need to nominate a post and not an entire blog. So please take time out to nominate Nita’s best posts for social issues category.

    @Vimal: I have updatednominations from one of your email. I will check another soon. THanks for the offer of help, I may soon need it. πŸ™‚

    @Sakhi: Your nominations before October 1 have been updated. I will update rest now!

    Poonam, thank you very much for considering my blog for the “Most Beautiful Header Award”, “Most Interesting Sidebar Award” and also for the “Best Blog Design Award”

    But I had also submitted for “Most Courageous Post, “Best Short Story Post”, “Best Off-beat Post”, “Best Movie Review Post”, “Most Interesting Tag Post”, “Best How-to Post”, “Best Current Affairs Post”, “Best Musical Post”, “Best Visual Post”, “Best Human Interest Story Post”, “Most Informative Post Award (link blogging)” and for “Best Public Interest Post”. I’m curious to know why didn’t they get listed.

    Also I see that my nominations for Rambunctious WhipperSnapper on “Best Short Story Post” and “Most Interesting Personal Rant Post” didn’t get listed either.

    I request you to kindly look into this slip. Thanks!

  97. 138 Crazy Sam October 8, 2008 at 4:42 pm

    Thanks Poonam for that quick response!
    Hehe.. you didn’t slip, but you didn’t include two of my submits and I know exactly why they were not picked – didn’t fall in the correct category.

    So lemme again nominate one of them by putting it in a more deserving catagory.
    In addition to the one that you already accepted, I would like to nominate this post for the “Best Visual Post”.

    Hey Poonam,

    This is like watching the Academy Awards!

    It looks you have a lot of talent to sort through, and I hope the judges are up to it!

    I’m just glad I like to “fly under the radar,” and not bring any attention to myself, or you’d have to sort though my posts, too!

    (The last time I went out of my way to make “a spectacle of myself,” the neighbors showed up, yelling and screaming on my front lawn, brandishing sharpened pitchforks and burning brands! I had to turn a fire hose on them, to get them to flee!) LOL!

    Thank goodness my blog doesn’t fit “the usual categories!”

    Good luck to all you guys and gals!

    BTW: Is it true that the winners have to actually kiss Madonna on the lips? Ewwwww! LOL!
