Vote in the PR “Readers’ Choice” Blog Awards

Educational blog nomination

Over the last few months I’ve enjoyed getting to know Arik Hanson. Arik’s a communicator from Minneapolis (which, I just realized, is further north than Toronto – go figure…) who’s a smart guy but, just as importantly,  is a nice guy too.

A couple of weeks ago, Arik came up with the concept of the PR “Readers’ Choice” Blog Awards after noticing a lack of peer recognition available to PR bloggers. Arik set-up four categories:

  • Best up-and-coming blog
  • Most educational blog
  • Most thought-provoking blog
  • Blog of the year

After soliciting nominations for the awards, Arik has now posted the official nominations. I’m flattered and pleasantly surprised that this site is nominated under the “Most Educational” category.

Some of my favourite sites are also nominated, including PR Squared,, Shannon Paul’s Very Official Blog, David Mullen’s Communications Catalyst and the Bad Pitch Blog.

Voting is now open but closes at midnight on June 3, so what are you waiting for? Head over and vote!
