2006 Okie Blog Awards

The Okie Blog Awards are established by, and decided by and for, Oklahoma bloggers exclusively. They are intended for our blogging peers to recognize and honor the excellence of diversity by bloggers within the state through popular nominating and voting.

On Aug. 14, 2006, Oklahoma bloggers began nominating their favorite blogs in each of 12 categories. In those categories with more than 10 blogs being nominated, the ten blogs receiving the most nominations made the final nomination list. The result was 87 different blogs as finalists.

Voting began Sept. 2 and ended on Sept. 20, 2006. The blogs listed below were judged to be the best of the best as determined by their blogging peers.

Congratulations to the winners and also to all the blogs making the final nomination list.
And thanks to everyone who helped make the 2006 Okie Blog Awards a success.

In solidarity,
Mike Hermes
