The 2019 Normal Happenings 
Blog Awards!

We always want to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of the people in our little corner of the blogosphere! That is what Nice Job Badges are for, after all. So many of you have spurred our desire for crafting excellent blog posts, and we couldn’t have done it without the constant support of our community. From commenters to contributors to Twitter aficionados, it has been a pleasure interacting with each and every one of you.

But sometimes we want to do more than give a nod to great posts during the week. Sometimes we want to do something really big! Normal Happenings started on February 26, 2018, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate our birthday than celebrating the year’s best of the best. Therefore on February 26, 2019, we will be doing the first annual Normal Happenings Blog Awards!

Here are the categories:

  • 2018’s Best Overall Blogger!
  • 2018’s Best Solo Blog Post!
  • 2018’s Most Creative Blog Post!
  • 2018’s Best Collaboration!
  • 2018’s Kindest Blogger!

Catchy, right? In my estimation, they exemplify the best qualities of blogs and their bloggers, and they deserve recognition of their hard work. Megan from A Geeky Gal has once again graciously volunteered to design some big, fancy badges to commemorate the winners.

This is going to be a collaborative effort. You see, we need your help determining the winners. If you’re like us, certain blog posts from the year have stuck in our memory, defining our life’s journey in some small way. We would like to know what those are for you, so we need your nominations. All nominations will be listed in the awards post, and you will receive a shout-out for your picks!

There are three ways to nominate:

  • The best way is to use the nifty nomination contact form affixed to this post.
  • You can also send Normal Happenings a message on Twitter.
  • If you’d like, you can send us a DM on Instagram.

Please be sure to include the category of your nomination, as well as the needed URL’s so we can read them. Feel free to add why you picked your selections, if you wish. Oh and…

  • Please don’t nominate yourself (or any guest post on your own site).
  • Please don’t nominate any links specifically on Normal Happenings, but feel free to nominate any blogger you like!
  • This is a bit awkward, but please don’t nominate Nikki or me.

I know, I know, that eliminates some good stuff, but I think it’s a good policy.

After compiling all of the nominations, which we will do on February 9, 2019, we will seed the results based on how many nominations they received. If there is a clear and decisive winner, I won’t worry about running a poll and go ahead and slot the winner for the award. If it is remotely close, I will run a series of two-option Twitter polls in a type of bracket format. While Normal Happenings will ultimately pick the winner, there is a very good chance it will be the winner of those polls. Therefore, we highly recommend following us on Twitter so you can be a part of the selection process!

On February 26, 2019 we will announce the winners in a big post! So we hope you are looking forward to this big event! With that, let’s get to nominating!

Reminder of the categories:

  • 2018’s Best Overall Blogger!
  • 2018’s Best Solo Blog Post!
  • 2018’s Most Creative Blog Post!
  • 2018’s Best Collaboration!
  • 2018’s Kindest Blogger!
