Avant Garde Bloggies Awards 2009 – Addition of Categories

I have to start by thanking everyone for your support. We have received about 120+ nominations. Again, with public demand, here are two new categories:

Best 55 er Post: It is a post that tells a story in 55 words.

Best evocative post on parenting:  This category included all posts about your kids, parenting in general. It includes both mommy bloggers and daddy bloggers, if there are terms like that. 🙂

I would also like to point out that you can nominate all your science/nature posts under the Best Tech post category. Depending on the number of nomiantions we have in the Science category, we can start that next year. 🙂

Remember if a category doesn’t receive at least 6 nominations, it will be scrapped. There are very few nomiantions in these categories:

1. Best Consumer Rights post

2. Best Professional Blog

3. Best Tech Post

4. Best How-to Post (which surprisingly was a popular category last year)

5. Best Culinery Post: Surprisingly so far received only 6 nominations! How come! I thought we had lot of food  bloggers around. We then certainly have not been reaching out to all the right people.

Nominate more posts and save these categories from dungeons. 🙂

You can check the list of categories here. Please send in your nominations in the comments section of this Avant Garde kick-off post.

Note that if you can not see your comment after posting, please DO NOT WORRY. It has most probably gone into spam due to too many links.   I will retrieve it when I spend a moment on wordpress. For safety sake, just let me know in another comment that you nominated, I will approve your comment.

Lastly, please read the rules before nominating. As per now, you can nominate you posts in three categories, which excludes the blog award categories as listed in the list of categories. I publicly request all of you who have nominated themselves in all the categories, to consider and let us know,  in which three categories you would like to enter your blog posts.

P.S: Avant Garde Bloggies Awards Group on Facebook. has about 110 members, please join them for more updates that are not regularly posted here on the blog.

P.P.S:  Both the current header and Avant Garde Bloggies Awards badges have been designed by Chirag.

P.P.P.S: Please DO NOT write in your nominations in the comment section of this post. For nominations, write in the comments section of this Avant Garde kick-off post.
