It's that time of year again. The Okie Blog Awards. If you are a blogger (or perhaps your library is) and you have a favorite Oklahoma Blog you think deserves recognition -- then stop by the 2006 Okie Blog Awards site.
The Okie Blog Awards were established by, and are decided by and for, Oklahoma bloggers exclusively. They are intended for our blogging peers to recognize and honor the excellence of diversity by bloggers within the state through popular nominating and voting.
Only Okie bloggers with active Okie blogs at the start of nominations are eligible. "Active" is defined as having at least one blog post during the previous 60 days. An "Okie blog" is defined as having at least one active blog author residing within the state of Oklahoma. All Okie Blog Awards are to be decided only by Okie bloggers.
Nominations can only be made by active Okie bloggers.
A blogger cannot nominate his or her own blog.
A blogger can only nominate one blog per category.
The same blog may be nominated in multiple categories.
In categories with more than ten nominees, the top ten blogs with the most nominations will be placed on the ballot.
Nominations will open Aug. 14, and close on Aug. 31, 2006.
Only active Okie bloggers can vote.
A blogger cannot vote for his or her own blog.
A blogger can only vote for one blog per category.
Voting will begin, beginning Sept. 2, and end Sept. 20, 2006
The top blog in each category will be recognized and the winners announced at the Okie Blogger Round-up 2006 in Oklahoma City, Sept. 23, 2006.
All decisions regarding the Okie Blog Awards are the responsibility of Okiedoke, and are final.
