Vote for the Christian Blogger Awards

March 18, 2009

The finalists for the 1st Christian Bloggers Award  (to be awarded at the Christian Bloggers Luncheon at the Tulsa Workshop) are

Vote before 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Savings Time (USA that is…) on March 23rd and spread the word.

Methinks the awards should be broadcast live.  Ustream maybe, Brad?

If you have never read any Christian blogs, the blogs of the finalists are a great place to start.  I am very proud to call many of them (the finalists, not the blogs!) friends, and some of them dear friends, spiritual mentors and encouragers and inspiration for my blogging.

1st Annual TheoBloggers Christian Awards

February 24, 2009

One of the things I love about blogging is the new friends I have made. I love being a part of the Christian blogging fellowship. Some of my blogging friends (hi Brad!) are sponsoring these awards. I wish Tulsa was closer! Maybe one year I will get there…

Please help us get the word out by blogging/posting/tweeting the URL

At the Tulsa (Oklahoma, USA) Workshop this year, we will be having a TheoBloggers® sponsored dinner for Christian bloggers and fans of Christian bloggers on Saturday, March 28th at 11:00 a.m. at the Memorial Road Church of Christ building.  Of the myriad festivities that will occur at that dinner, one of the most exciting will be the first annual TheoBloggers® Christian Bloggers Awards.

Just like blogging, we want to make this a community event.  To do so, we need you to help us nominate bloggers for various awards.  Once the nominations are in, a panel of five judges will consider all comments and frequency of nominations and will sort the nominations and come up with the top three in each category.  At that time, we will make you aware of the finalists and you will get to make the final decision in a second round of voting.  The results of these awards will be announced at the TheoBloggers® dinner and then posted at

We have two categories of awards: “Best of” awards, which focus on individual blogs and posts, and “Blogger of the Year”, which will focus on the overall content and communicative value of the blog.  The “Best of” awards will consist of the following categories:

– Best Marriage/Family/Parenting Blog
– Best Leadership/Discipleship Blog
– Best Devotional/Inspirational Blog
– Best Theological Blog
– Best Practical Ministry Blog
– Best Blog by a Female Blogger
– Best New Blogger – Must have started their first blog in 2008

This form is broken into three parts: your information, “Blogger of the Year” nomination, and “Best of” nomination.  Be sure to use the appropriate spaces for your nominations.  Please revisit the form to nominate additional bloggers. You may nominate as many bloggers per category as you choose.  You may also nominate yourself if you desire, although this does not sit well for the “Most Humble Blogger” award :).

Blogging award nominations will be accepted from February 9th through March 2nd.  Finals voting will be March 9th through March 23rd.

If you have any questions or problems with this form, please contact
