Presenting the Group A category nominees

We’re happy to present the nominees for the 30 categories of Group A. Please note that the nominated blogs are listed in alphabetical order.

According to the schedule, voting begins on May 31, so if you are nominated, you have a week to charm and bribe your friends into voting for you. If you aren’t nominated, you can think of ways to sell your vote to the highest bidder, or start thinking of how to make sure you get nominated when Group B categories are revealed!

  7. Hello my name is Seye, I am traveling from the future. Oh I think I calculated October 12, 2012 and I got to 2010. Oooops

  8. Hello,

    I have always wondered about the criteria for selection in the Nigerian Blog Awards.

    In particular, I am interested in how for the Best Political Blog, a blog that has not published since September 2010 qualifies for the 2011 awards.

    Whilst I am not a self-publicist by any stretch of the imagination, I am however glad that NigerianTalks is recognised.

    Last year, I remember raising another issue about the standard and criteria for selection when Grandfather blog was considered ones that had been publishing for just 2 years and many of those consistently publishing for over 4 years and mine for over 6 did not have a look in.

    I will however commend improvements that have recognised NaijaBlog in your main categories where before you had to fudge an inclusion category to laud a very Nigerian blog, albeit written by a Englishman living in Nigeria.

    I cannot say I recognise most of the blogs being nominated so it goes without saying that mine would be not noticed by the crowd that makes up the nominations for the awards.
