PLEASE don't attempt to submit your blog now. There is no other way to have your blog considered other than the nomination process. Yes, the awards will be announced live at the Black Social Media Summit in Houston, TX on November 2, 2013.

 

Yes, there will be a nomination fee again this year which will help fund the physical awards that will go to all winners. 

 

If you would like to prepare for the awards season, I would suggest evaluating your social networks and strategizing how to mobilize your audience to vote for you in the first and second round of voting. If you think you have a pretty good chance of winning or just want to hang out with your favorite bloggers, you can start running the cost of plane fare to Houston to collect your award in person on November 2nd. All nominees and finalists in attendance will be recognized in some way in addition to the winners. 

 

We hope that this stems the flow of emails and eases your fear that you will miss out on the awards season. We're glad you're excited. These are all of the details we can make public at this time.

Blogger Spotlight: SocaMom...Because Motherhood is CAH-NEE-VAL!

Our Blogger Spotlight is:

SocaMom.com...because Motherhood is CAH-NEE-VAL! by Eva Greene-Wilson

Why did you decide to start blogging?

Once I became a parent, and started meeting other parents, I realized that my style of parenting was different because I was brought up in a Caribbean household. I decided to start this blog to share resources for parents with roots in the Caribbean who are raising their children outside of the West Indies. I believe that giving children and parents access to their roots truly empowers and inspires them.

When people come to your blog, what will they find?

When people visit my blog, they will find a little bit of everything. I am a Caribbean American mom, who loves technology, sci-fi, and shoes, which means that people will find everything from Caribbean family events and West Indian recipes to movie reviews and fabulous footwear. One of the goals of the blog is to provide resources for parents raising their children outside of the Caribbean, so they will find plenty of activity and coloring sheets in my downloads section, a calendar with Caribbean events, recipes, and interviews with Caribbean parents. SocaMom.com is also my personal blog, so there are family stories and parenting advice as well.

What's the promise you make to people who visit your blog?

I can promise that my reviews will be honest and my shoes will be fabulous. Other than that - I don't make any promises!

Our Blogger Spotlight is:

Productivity LLC by Shimira Williams.

Why did you decide to start blogging?

I was frustrated answering the same questions from people. I thought a blog would be perfect to house and share all the information I know about technology.

When people come to your blog, what will they find?

They will find tips and how-to video on various technology that help people and organizations communicate and collaborate more productively
