WELCOME!!

Welcome to the official blog page of the Naija Bloggers Award. This blog will serve as the official site where nominating, voting, interacting, and everything else will go down. The 2009 Naija Bloggers Award is Sting's baby, but she most definitely couldn't have done it without the help of Toluwa, Naijagirl, and the now retired Geisha.

We have come up with a whole bunch of award categories. However, we would like everyone to participate in this process and have as much fun as possible. We divided the award categories into two. Category A consists of the typical award categories, while Category B is not so typical.

mizchif February 22, 2009 at 12:08 PM  

Ok, now that i am done sulking.

I like the categories, i've already written them out like i have homework.
I think we need to come up with a polling system, cuz i think it mite be too stressful to read evry single comment.

So let us know how to go abt submitting entries.

Good job ppl!

zara (my alter ego) February 22, 2009 at 12:29 PM

meanwhile, how do we submit entries?

Dabizniz February 23, 2009 at 4:28 AM  

While it's a good idea it'll be highly subjective and not represent true assessment as it would be based more on popularity than content.

Naija Bloggers Awards 2009 February 23, 2009 at 4:39 AM  

We'll let you guys know when it's time to nominate people. Right now, we are just trying to get people to be aware that this is going on and also if you guys would like other categories added before we start.

Arewa February 23, 2009 at 5:12 AM

I wonder if we won't have some vexation from those who will be nominated for the Grandpa and grandma bloggers dem dem. :)... he he he... I hope I will have time to participate joo. It looks like this will be a lot of fun.

Ms Sula February 23, 2009 at 12:58 PM  

Those categories are hilarious! Can't wait to see how it shapes up and can't wait to vote. I have a few "first" bloggers in mind. :D

Rita February 23, 2009 at 1:29 PM  

Since we have fewer males among the bloggers, is it possible to have an award to recognize the guys? Cos i perceive that lots of female bloggers would clear the awards. What u think?

NoLimit February 23, 2009 at 2:02 PM  

Wow! this looks like fun...great job peops!Category B awards...are just waaaaayyyyyy out of this world!Omo let the parry begin!!!

Sugabelly February 23, 2009 at 2:03 PM  

LOL@ all the citizen rants.

Don't you know there is a "naturalization" period before you get citizenship? ;)

James Tubman February 23, 2009 at 3:48 PM

BTW, what about bloggers like Solomonsydelle, Vera, Writefreak, Favoured Girl, Rita, Diamond Hawk, Aloted, Mimi, Uzezi etc that have more than one blog?

JideSalu's Diary February 24, 2009 at 5:11 AM  

Ok Sting,

I thank Geisha o.

Sting, to be honest, the idea is fab, however, I believe it is a unique opportunity to promote the countless talented 9ja bloggers out there.

I am sure, judging by the ideas for the category B awards, you guys must have sat down to think of the format the voting will go.

For instance, is it going to be an academy type of voting - Oscars or is it going to be opened only to fellow bloggers or is it strictly for non bloggers?

I know it will be fun, my only fear is that it could be trivialised and I honestly believe that there are fantastic influential bloggers amongst us who ought to be recognised.

I vote STING for the best original blogger idea 9you think am' kidding, am' serious)

Anyway, once I know the format, I am sure you will get a lot more from me as I have already started working on an idea that will recognise everyone's talent out there....

No more stings okay..

Cheers and good on ya

Shubby Doo February 24, 2009 at 5:24 AM
