Nominations for The 2014 Bip Awards: Excellence in blogging in social media in the trading card industry
Collecting cards is a hobby we all love an enjoy. We love sharing stories, keeping track of the latest news, and challenging companies to be better.
This year, I am hosting The 2014 Bip Awards, honoring the best of the blogging community. In addition, there are a couple of social media awards.
Starting today and running for one week, we are going to take nominations for each of the 11 categories. On Saturday, January 17, the five nominees (and 10 for Blog of the Year) will be announced. The voting will take place for the two weeks after that.
The winners will be announced on Feb. 2. And, there will be prizes.
I hope many of you take part in the awards. This is a special community and a great way to recognize those that contribute to it.
Please don't "stuff" the ballot box by getting every person you ever met to vote for your blog. If I think there is any tampering going on, I will remove that blog from consideration. It's the internet, people do crazy things to win contests. Also, try not to vote for yourself.
Please nominate blogs and social media members through the form below:
