Category B Nominations... and other stories

Hey guys,

it's Geisha here! it's so much fun to be typing a blog post again. i want to drink in the moment and revel in the words... but it is not to be. i'm here to work!

I am so glad you guys are so excited about the awards - we are too! however people, ONLY 60 PEOPLE HAVE NOMINATED SO FAR. what's happening? Sixty people is not even half of the blogs on Afrobabe's blog list! come on!!

Clearly you were more excited about the category B awards, but you gotta show the 'A's some love too!

So we've ajdusted the 'rules' a little bit to reflect the info we've gathered:
* The category B nominations are going up right now, and they are going to run simultaneously with the category A ones. so you can have fun, but please don't neglect the more serious awards!

* We said the A nominations would end on the 5th of March, but we're taking away that deadline. feel free to nominate for as long as you like - and when we're going to end it we'll give you a few days notice.

* Bloggers, please try to limit your nominations to one per blogger... however, you can solicit votes from your friends and family! just point them to the webpage and let them do their thing! everybody can be a part of this, so vera, feel free to rally up your fans!

Go, Vote, and have FUN!!!!!!!

Okay I have a suggestion! there should be some kind of post-humous(esque) award for bloggers who have left the blog domain. Like a lifetime achievement award or something.

Miss Iyabo Opeke February 27, 2009 at 5:28 AM  

Are U guyz announcing about the '411' on this Award thingy on Facebook network because that's where the wind of those who once used to blog has shifted to...

You can also open a temporary group out there so people can follow it...


Use the 'Blog Network' (I hope datz what it is called?) application on facebook so people can follow your blog & U can claim ur blog...

Femi B February 27, 2009 at 6:48 AM

Some bloggers actually transcend both categories, serious and un serious

Rose February 27, 2009 at 8:35 AM  

Off to nominate.More grease to your elbows.This is really good,and exciting,and is guaranteed to involve everyone.

Vera Ezimora February 27, 2009 at 1:19 PM  

Ah, category B don come??? Chei!!! Should I blog "Let's Go There...Again" or will that be pushing it? LOL!

I'm unclear about how these nominations work. How do you decide the winner? Do u pick randomly abi you pick the blogger with the highest nominations? Enlighten me, Geisha.

I miss you by the way!

@all:you guys, your excitement is infectious!!!

@vera: Well, first we reduce the list to the most popular nominees, and then you get to vote again - this time with the actual names of the nominees. but that'll not be for a long while yet, so you guys can get to nominating!
