2012 Brodies: Vote Here!!

Year-long awards for people and websites

Awards for Individual Works

Naturally, this is the part that kept me from finishing the polls yesterday as I’d planned — it was just so interesting to review all of these amazing posts from 2012!! I’m planning to skip SiOB this week (and do a double one next week) so that you won’t be distracted from reviewing the nominees! As always, I reorganized the categories a bit — adding or splitting some, deleting or combining others — according to which categories were strongly represented.

The links follow each poll, due to length restrictions on the poll entries.

    So many good choices! How will I decide??!?

  2. Donna Banta says:

    I know. The competition is stiff!

  3. chanson says:

    I know ! I tried not to go too overboard on adding my own nominations (to make sure it’s reasonable for interested voters to read most or all of them), but there were so many interesting posts!!

    One particular trend that stood out for me is the strength of the “News Reporting” and “LDS Church Watch” categories. Usually I think of blogspace as mostly for commentary and discussion, but in 2012 there were really a lot of stories that either broke in blogspace or where the story was covered best by the blogs.

  4. Julia says:

    I agree chanson. There is a lot of really good news being made, or reported, as it happens. Honestly, I didn’t really understand what the category meant, or I would have added the guest post from my friend surviving Hurricane Sandy. Although I guess it wasn’t really LDS themed though.

    I am glad I have some time to read through all of these. Do I have to worry about closing my browser? (Is it considered cool or stupid to mention being nominated on our personal blogs?)

  5. I was so impressed with the many great entries presented here that I don’t even mind that I was snubbed this year!

  6. MikeUtah says:

    Fun topics. Kind of disappointed that LifeAfterMormonism.net wasn’t included in the best forum category. Oh well. Maybe next year.

  7. So you got snubbed too, eh Mike? Well, I guess we both had our day in the sun in previous years.

  8. MikeUtah says:

    That is true Rock, however, many of the other contenders have had their fair share of past lime light as well. I wonder how broadly they sought nominations. This is the first I’ve heard of the Brodie awards for this year.

  9. chanson says:

    @10 Yeah, I was going to say I feel like I didn’t publicize the nominations well enough this year. In the past, I’ve written to you about the nominations, and this year I forgot to do that.

    Also, in the past, I’ve done a “last call for nominations” post that lists the nominations up to that point — to help people get an idea of which categories still need nominations, and to get people who may have missed the earlier nominations thread another chance to see it.

    Anyway, I really regret the sloppiness of this year’s Brodie Award nomination process. (I’ve been crazy busy with moving and work, etc., but I obviously could and should have put up the “last call for nominations” post.) I hope the Brodies will be fun this year anyway, and next year’s will be even better!!!

  10. Doesn’t bother me, Chanson. I’m a big admirer of you for all that you do in promoting the Bloggernacle, and I think you have quite an impressive bunch listed here that I would not have even known of had it not been for your good work. I understand how life can get in the way of things. Anyway, you have promoted the heck out of my blog, “Pure Mormonism” several times in the past, and I’m the proud recipient of a Brodie Award for last year, which was completely unexpected, so Whoo Hoo!

  11. TGD says:

    This is slightly off topic but I just realized there is no link on the side bar to call up the 2011 winners.

  12. chanson says:

    @14 Yeah I know — a little bit of procrastination. 😉

    After this batch of awards is done, I’ll add the latest buttons in the sidebar for all the missing years of both awards.
