Expert! awards

Everyone loves to be recognized for a job well done. Bloggers like to be recognized because it promotes popularity. Popularity promotes the blog. It’s a win-win-win situation. The only problem I see with the blogger awards that are currently in circulation is the work you must do for accepting the nomination. Now there is a good reason for the work associated, but I’d like to make it easier on you.

I’ve developed a new award system and I hope you like it. When looking into the actual different types of blog awards, I noticed the key words in praise for a great blog is brilliant, funny, motivational, and inspirational. So I made these awards:

As you all know, I’m an expert of none! But with these awards, we can give away expert status. I think these awards could bring alot of visitors to the awardee’s blog and this is how I believe it should work:

The rules:

1. You can award one blog per category per week (not everyone should receive expert status; the bar is set very high!) All this means is copy an award from this post, blog a quick paragraph on your site with the awardee’s information and why you are giving them this honor and then let them know it’s out there.

2. You then shoot me an email with the link to the awardee’s blog address ( and a link to your blog about their awesomeness.

3. I will make a weekly post to talk about the awardee and their terrific blog!

4. Make sure when you tell them they are now an Expert! at something, please also pass on these rules. My weekly post should be on Tuesdays or Wednesdays at the Jill of All Trades…Expert of None! blog and if I get enough recipients, it’ll become a contest as to who was the best blog for that category for that week. This post will also mention the nominee’s blog. That way we’re all publicized on your blog, my blog, and the awardee’s blog…again, win-win-win situation.

That’s it, we’re done. Easy peasy pudding pie…

    some of these responses look as if they are coming from brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other places, I would like to
