The 2007 BlogAsheville Awards, to be held at Extravablogiversapaloozathon 2007 on September 29th, work like this:
1. We'll open nominations for a couple of weeks. You can nominate any blogger for any category. For the "Best Post" category, you have to use one written between last year's awards and this year's. Leave your nominations in this comment thread, or email them to me at scrutinyhooligans at yahoo. Please post links to this post at your blogs and encourage folks to come nominate. Best new blog category can be any blogger who's started up since last year's awards.
2. I'll close the nominations when I get a mind to, and we'll put up a voting form at Survey Monkey. We're not going to do any paper ballots this year because they're a royally unnecessary pain in my keister. Voting will close on the night of the party.
3. If you won a prize last year, you have to bring a prize this year. And we'll need a few other people to bring prizes as well. Prizes can be whatever you want them to be. Last year I won a nice ceramic sake mug and some cool George W. refrigerator magnets.
4. Winners will proudly be able to display some sort of something at their blog to tell everyone how well they're thought of.
