2009 Okie Blog Awards a Charm

The 5th Annual Okie Blog Awards was bigger and better than ever this year. The number of award categories doubled from 12 to 24 and the entire process was professionally managed.

This year’s awards were coordinated by the talented Jennifer James, an Oklahoma City public relations practitioner and writer who blogs about Generation X.

Members of the final determination panel included Mike Hermes, founder of the Okie Blog Awards; Louisa McCune-Elmore, editor, Oklahoma Today; Mike Koehler, new media director, Schnake Turnbo Frank PR and John G. Johnson, J.D., executive director, Association of Central Oklahoma Governments.

You can revisit the entire process at the Official 2009 Okie Blog Awards blog.

Thank you for supporting the Oklahoma blogging community.

2009 Okie Blog Awards

Okiedoke is pleased to announce the presentation of the

5th Annual Okie Blog Awards.

This year’s Awards will be coordinated by Jennifer, author of the Oklahoma blog jenx67. Jen has not only graciously volunteered to facilitate the 2009 Awards, but just as importantly, promises to breathe new life into them. For example:

If you start a blog in 2009, you will be eligible to compete in the 2009 Okie Blog Awards! Moreover, you might have a shot at an award category that is doing very well in the current poll on this site: Best New Blog 2009. What a fun award to win – one that bloggers who had a site prior to January 1, 2009, can’t win!

Of course, some things will remain the same:

The purpose of the awards is to recognize the hard work and talent of Oklahoma bloggers, as well as to raise awareness about the growing significance of blogs as important sources of news, information and entertainment

Many of the improvements will depend largely on the Oklahoma blogging community itself. Folks can take a brief survey, via email, to help determine categories for the 2009 Okie Blog Awards as well as possible changes in the selection process. Or simply choose from a list of possible categories in an online poll.

It’s all at the official Okie Blog Awards blog.

I hope all Okies (and Oklahomans) will join me in supporting Jen in not just continuing the tradition of the Okie Blog Awards, but making them better than ever.

In solidarity,
Mike Hermes
