The nominations for the 2014 Bip Awards are ...


Welcome to the 2014 Bip Awards!

Below are 10 categories of voting in the first Bip Awards. I removed one of the categories from the earlier post - Best blog post. There just weren't enough entries for that to have a good poll.

The goal of The Bip Awards is to celebrate the card-collecting community on the blogosphere and social media. There are many of us who share our collections, expertise and humor every day. It has brought more collectors out and allowed those who want to return to collecting a special space to enjoy.

Blogs and social media have made collecting more enjoyable for me and others. I love reading stories, checking out those mail days and learning more about cards than I ever thought possible.

Take a few minutes and vote for your favorites. Polls will be opened until January 31 at midnight ET. The winners will be announced on Feb. 2.

  2. Um I'm not quite sure who nominated my blog for ROY but I'm afraid that I'm technically not eligible for this year's ROY contest since I was nominated for the 2013 edition.

  5. Could you possibly link to the blogs mentioned? Some of them I'm familiar with, but some of them I'm hearing about for the first time reading these voting options. Based on the title alone I'd like to follow several of them. Thanks!

    1. That's a good idea. I was thinking of a way I might be able to do that earlier, but I couldn't put a hyperlink in the polls themselves. Tomorrow (it's midnight here and close to bed time), I'll add links somewhere in the post. ... You might also be able to find them in my blogroll or just using Google. Another great asset for blogs is J.B.'s blogroll page http://bdj610scblogroll.blogspot.com/

    2. Thanks for the link! I just spent the last two hours pulling interesting looking blogs to add to my blogroll. I wish there was something like that for non-sports blogs as well.

  10. Thanks to whomever nominated me. It's almost been three years of blogging and not many know me so to be mentioned on this list with the fellas on it, I am honored.

    Thanks for hosting this Sooz.

  11. Is this the year that someone finally knocks Greg off his throne? Probably not. But best of luck to all of the nominees... including you Mr. Night Owl.

  12. Don't know how I got nominated but I appreciate it and thank you to all that did.
    Obviously would love to win but it is honor just to be nominated considering I still
    feel like a newbie.
    Good luck to all
