The bloggersphere is full to the brim (and ever expanding,) showcasing the talent and uniqueness that men and women have to offer. However, many talents go unnoticed and unrecognized – especially in the 30+ category.
In order to celebrate as many blogs as possible, the THIRTY PLUS Blog Awards aims to put the control back into the hands of the bloggersphere and celebrate the array of talent that currently exists. This is more than just ‘another blog award’ – this is a celebration in every sense of the word, which illustrates the dedication and passion that goes into running a blog.
We want to ensure bloggers are celebrated in more than just one way, by introducing categories that really mean something. We want to celebrate the undiscovered talents, the next big things and the bloggers that inspire us. We want to judge them based not only on numbers, but on criteria established and agreed by other bloggers - so it’s not just a popularity contest or based upon commercial interests.
In 2016 we received in excess of 600 nominations in each of the 7 categories, as well as over 2000 individual votes once the shortlist was announced. In 2017 we hope to make the impact even bigger! These are the categories in which you can nominate (and later vote)…
THE NEXT BIG THING We want to know who you think is a blogger to watch, or who you think has huge potential to achieve great things. Maybe they’re new to the bloggersphere, have a real point of difference or just show huge promise – we want to know about them.
MOST ADDICTIVE BLOG What’s the one site you just can’t get enough of? Where do you head to on a daily basis without fail, just to check what they’ve been up to? Nominate them so we can all get addicted too!
MOST INNOVATIVE CONTENT Who do you know that pushes the boundaries, creates amazing content and stands out from the crowd?
PHOTOGRAPHY STAR Is there a blogger who creates incredibly lustworthy images that you’d like to receive recognition? Nominate those photography stars that tell amazing stories with their pictures.
SOCIAL MEDIA HERO We want to know about the blogger who curates the most addictive social platforms. Whether that’s always being at the end of a tweet to answer questions, curating lustworthy Pinterest boards or uploading the most creative Instagram content… We want to celebrate them.
COMMUNITY STAR Is there a blogger you know that enriches your world with no benefit to themselves? Perhaps makes it their business to help others in the bloggersphere or inspires greatness? We want to recognize these selfless community stars who are committed in making a positive difference.
BLOGGER OF THE YEAR Nominate the one blogger you think deserves the ultimate recognition, no matter their topic of choice. The reason behind the choice is totally up to you!
