Each year the Black Weblog Awards recognizes excellence in blogging across a number of categories. According to www.blackweblogawards.com, “the Black Weblog Awards was founded in 2005 to give recognition to Black bloggers (and those of the African diaspora) which were largely overlooked by other Internet award events online. What started out as a barely-known event has now grown into an international showcase. With participants from over 90 countries, the Black Weblog Awards stands out as one of the most widespread Internet award events for Black bloggers.”
Many of my favorite blogs and bloggers (oh you know, like Very Smart Brothas, The Curvy Fashionista, A Black Girls Guide to Weight Loss, Young, Fabulous, and Self-Employed) have won Black Weblog Awards in the past . Last year, YCS had the honor of being nominated in three categories for the Black Weblog Awards. It was truly an honor to be recognized by our readers as one of the best blogs out there and garner nominations.
This year, we’re asking you to take a few moments and nominate us for the Black Weblog Awards in the following categories:
- Best Blog Post Series (Men’s Style by Donte; Make-Up Moves by Torrey)
- Best Fashion Blog
- Best Group Blog
- Best Plus Sized Fashion Blog
All of the contributors to YCS work very hard to make sure we are posting the most relevant and helpful information for our readers and it’s a huge deal to be recognized for doing so. We love everyone out there who takes the time to read our posts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, to comment on our posts, and to give us feedback via email, facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
All of the official rules and nomination procedures can be found on www.blackweblogawards.com. Be sure to follow YCS (@urchicisshowing) and @blkweblogawards on Twitter, as nominations are announced on the site.
Nominations run through September 6, 2013 – don’t delay!!!
