So, the big thing I realized I need to do a better job of is communication and explanation of the process. Or, find someone else to "MC" next years blog awards helping to communicate begin times, cut off times, etc.
Things for next year include more lead up time and discussion of categories.
Should there be a review of nominations? We had some nominations in "group blog" that I don't think really count as group blogs. Should the voting be restricted in the number of nominations that are voted on?
Did anyone miss the blog format from the first annual? Should vote tallies have been kept secret until the end?
What else? What did you like, what didn't you like? What can be done better next year for the third annual blog awards?
