It’s time one again for our annual awards! This year, we’re trying something a little different. Some have been concerned that the polling plugin we were using wasn’t very secure, so we are trying a new polling method. Unfortunately, it can’t be embedded within this website, but we hope it will work as well, if not better. (One downside is that we can’t embed links as we did in past years.) So, go ahead and click the link below to start voting.
Go ahead and campaign. Feel free to post links (since we can’t do it on the poll) do let everyone know what your favorite categories/winners should be. Since we got a late start on voting today, we will let it go through next Monday Jan 30 at Midnight, and announce results as soon thereafter as we can. We may post links here later, so check back, but we wanted to get votes up as soon as possible.
Why is the “The pride cycle, the prosperity gospel, and grace” put under the category of the Best post on Feminism/Patriarchy?
Mistake. We will fix. Thanks for noting.
If you could post a list of nominees with links, that would be very helpful. I looked at the poll but found it impossible to vote because I don’t recognize every blog post by its title. Also, as a fellow blogger, one of the things I appreciate most about this annual tradition is that it links back to our blogs and drives new traffic to each other.
I second the request for links. I voted in categories where I remembered with fondness one of the contenders, but would have loved to do more research. The other categories I skipped.
Also I voted for Rob in the Worst Commenter category. After the fact I felt guilty. Even though I had a run in with him (at least once) during the year, I think it’s a terrible category that should be done away with. Let us rejoice in all that is beautiful about the Bloggernacle and ignore all that is ugly, lest we become that which we despise. (We’ll stand up to it respectfully when we see it, but not worry about it months later.) When the votes are tallied, please reduce his score by one.
* “We’ll” should be “well”. Stupid autocorrect.
Just so you know, “Chris Henrichson campaigned hard and won his category of worst commenter.”
This from last year’s winner’s post: https://wheatandtares.org/2016/01/25/tarefic-wheaties-winners/ (and yes Chris did campaign! I think it was more of a lifetime achievement award though, because he hasn’t commented here much in the past few years.)
Most “worst commenters” take this as a badge of honor. It’s meant mostly tongue-in-cheek.
