The Okie Blog Awards celebrates its fourth year in recognizing and honoring the excellence and diversity of bloggers within Oklahoma through popular nominating and voting. The awards were established by, and are decided by and for, Oklahoma bloggers exclusively.

On Jan. 2, 2009, 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.

From Jan. 21 through Feb. 7, more than 1,000 votes were submitted by qualified Okie bloggers which resulted in the following blogs deemed the best in Oklahoma during 2008.

Congratulations to the winners, and also to all the blogs making the final nomination list.

The winning blogger in each category is welcome to copy and use the accompanying Okie Blog Award graphic on their blog and adjust the size as they see fit.
You are encouraged to also include a link from the graphic to this page.
