Contest - Nominate the Top 40 Innovation BloggersBlogging Innovation is looking for the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers, and we have more than $10,000 worth of prizes as rewards available to a select few people who take the time to nominate someone.

Do you, or does someone you know, write articles about innovation?

You can submit a nomination either of these two ways:

  1. Sending us the name of the blogger and the url of their blog by @reply on twitter to @innovate

Voting will then be open from September 13-19, 2010 via comments and twitter @replies to @innovate.

The official Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2010 and the contest winners will then be announced on Blogging Innovation on September 20, 2010.

One Response to Contest – Nominate the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers

  1. Hi Brad, i think this is a great effort and motivation for the people that follows your blog.

    I think that the prizes should be reserved to the people that are nominating the authors.

    These authors are world known, so they dont need to win tickets, maybe if an unknown author but with excellent writing skills enters to the list of the 40 should win a ticket.

    The rest for people that motivates.
    I think one interesting thing should be the number of people we nominate as a factor to win one of the prizes.
