World Media Awards
I want to thank Derek for this opportunity to reach out to his readers – many of them bloggers – and invite them to make sure the most deserving bloggers are considered for a World Media Award.
When I think of my favorite bloggers, Derek always comes to mind. He writes in such an honest, straight-forward and inviting way – as though he was talking to his friends. And that is probably why he is such a popular blogger.
Tonight I am nominating DerekSemmler.com for Best Blog About Stuff and hope the judges are as big a fan of his writing as I am. Besides many famous judges and dozens of categories, Murray Newlands has the backing of the eBay partner network as lead sponsor.
Additional sponsors Viglink, Trancos, GrowMap and Pace Lattin and Media Sponsors MyBlogGuest, FeedBurner alternative FeedBlitz, The Affiliate Marketing Awards, Read Write Web, Adrants, Bloggeries, Media Vision, and Guest Blogging Network Web Traffic Control will ensure plenty of visibility across social media and hundreds of blog posts.
Nominations are open now and cost $45, but the first 100 bloggers can earn a free nomination by promoting the event. You can also become an event ambassador and earn commissions on sales and get a free ticket for yourself and discounted tickets for your friends. Bloggers may nominate their own blogs.
If you can be in San Jose October 26, 2011 why not come to this event to be held in the PayPal building in person? Besides the awards there will be a full day of workshops led by leading experts on publishing sharing the latest in technologies and techniques.

No comments yet? I would think that your readers would love to see you win an award – not that you need one as doing what you do is reward in itself. If you or your readers know of other blogs that deserve to be nominated please do let me know? Thanks.

Congrats on the nomination, I think you are well deserved of it.

Nice! This looks like the Emmy awards of the blogging world or something. They have all sorts of “best blog” categories like “best sports blog”, “best travel blog”, “most obnoxious blogger”, etc.
I wonder is “Best blog about stuff” the most appropriate category for you? The title seems so non-specific and vast.

Best Blog about Stuff – funny
Maybe this one – Best Multi-category blog
