I am very proud to announce the commencement of voting for "Bestest Blog of the Year."
. Not only is this a huge deal for anyone who has followed this site, but it will symbolically mark the transition from Bestest Blog to Blankest Blank
The process is super simple. There are 105 blogs in the running. Go here
and vote for them on a scale from 1 to 5 (1 is the worst, 5 is the best). If you want to make your vote count 3 times as much, be sure to register
first. Voting will end 2 weeks from today, August 6th (which also happens to be my 2 year wedding anniversary) and winners will be announced on August 7th.
The winner will receive (at least) a $50 cash prize! They will also have a link to their blog featured on the Blankest Blank Home Page
for the next year (until the next blog of the year is decided).
The overall top 10 blogs (including the winner) will have their link featured here at Bestest Blog (replacing the Blog of the Month and Featured Blog in the top left) as well as have their links replace the blog of the year voting page
. Results for blogs ranked 11 and up will be available from a link on the voting page as well.
If your blog is in the running, here are some tips to increase your chances of winning:
1. Go vote
for yourself (duh!)
2. Encourage others to vote for you. Here is the URL: http://www.blankestblank.com/bestest/blog-of-the-year/

3. Encourage others to register
before voting. Registered users votes count 3 times more than guests.
4. Keep up the great blogging that got you here in the first place. People are going to be stopping by your blog before voting, and if you have some great, new content, that'll surely increase your vote.
Again, congratulations and good luck! And if you're interested in winning another "blog of the day" award and get in the running for next year's award, check out the new "Blankest Blank Blog Directory
