Milblogging dot com is hosting the milbloggies again. Here's the info and the link, but I don't think I'll be a very good condition to do lots of posting soon, so vote as you will.
The Milbloggies Award recognizes military bloggers for their contribution to blogging, news and information, and to the military over the past year.
1. A military blog can be nominated ONLY once by the same registered user. However, a user can nominate as many military blogs as they wish. All nominations must be submitted online through Milblogging.com by 5:00 pm EST on February 21, 2007.
2. The top five nominees in each branch and country category will be announced on February 22nd and those nominees will move into the Voting Phase beginning February 22, 2007. The Voting Phase will close on February February 26, 2007. Instructions on voting will appear on the website on February 22, 2007.
3. Nominees may be military blogs that belong to the following branch categories and countries in the Milblogging.com database:
U.S. Air Force
U.S. Civilian Contractor
U.S. Coast Guard
U.S. Marine Corps
U.S. Military (Parent
U.S. Military (Spouse)
U.S. Military (Veteran)
U.S. Military Supporter
Foreign National (Civilian)
Foreign National (Military)
4. To nominate a military blog, you must be signed in or a registered user (just like last year). Registration is quick and free and you will not receive any SPAM. This helps maintain the integrity of voting. To place you nomination, simply click on the listing in the Milblogging.com database, and click the Nominate button at the top of the blog profile. You can reivew the milblogs you nominated at any time, by signing in and clicking Manage Favorites. Click the link that says View Milblogs Nominated by You.
5. Winners will be presented awards at the 2007 Milblog Conference on May 5, 2007. Winners are not required to attend the conference in order to receive their awards.
So vote early, vote often, vote with your head, not your heart. This shouldn't be a popularity contest, it should really be about who is the best milblogger. To do otherwise takes away from the integrity of the award, and makes us no better than the self-agrandizing idjits in the entertainment industry.
