It’s that time of the year again. The Oscars, the Grammys… the American Wine Blog Awards.
These Wine Blog Awards were created by Tom Wark of Wark Communications and the Fermentation Blog, one of the most widely read wine blogs on the web. They are now in their third year, and were created with an interesting mix of public voting and judging in mind.
Right now, until midnight tomorrow, February 8, you can nominate your favorite wine blogs by simply leaving a comment in the appropriate category on Tom’s blog (please feel free to nominate this blog, if you’ve enjoyed it – just not in the graphics category…). From there, a panel of judges will select four blogs in each category as finalists. And then, the vote will be open to the public again. The more suggestions at this point, the better the chances for the finalists to be representative of what people are reading and enjoying in the growing world of wine blogs.
So go ahead and nominate. Then come back and vote, when the finalists are out. A little recognition goes a long way for wine bloggers, who more often than not are doing this in their spare time, with little or no revenue in return.
