Friend of the Station Sean Taylor’s Bad Girls, Good Guys, and Two-Fisted Action Blog is planning a new award for bloggers called The BaGo Awards. Sean is currently looking for nominations so let him know your favorite blogs here.
We’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of the blog (first post was 11/27/11), and I wanted to do something special for it, but not for me — for all the other bloggers out there plugging away every day.
So here’s what I have in mind — The BaGo Awards (or the soon to be known simply as the BaGo). Send me your suggestions and I’ll present the best of the best blogs out there for and by writers. Here are a few of the categories I propose. What categories would you add? (not blogs yet… I’ll announce the call for those as soon as we get the categories hammered out.)
Best In Show Awards
For INDIVIDUAL writers who are primarily genre-specific who maintain a blog about their work in that genre and the genre itself.
Comics and Graphic Novels
Best in Craft Award
For the best instructional/inspirational resource blog to make writers better at their craft.
Most Beautiful Soul Award
