Who are Austin’s Top Bloggers? You decide! Announcing the 2010 Austin Blogger Awards.

2010 November 10

When Republic of Austin won Best Local Blog and Best Local Blogger from the readers of the Austin Chronicle, I was shocked. For me, there are so many amazing blogs in this city-many of whom never receive recognition. It was in that moment I decided I wanted to do the Austin Blogger Awards to recognize some of the top bloggers in this city!

Similar to the Roaries (our Austin Music Awards), the Austin Blogger Awards are reader nominated and reader voted upon. With categories that range from Blogger of the Year to Best Food Blog for Recipes and Best Tumblr, we really want to celebrate the diverse blogosphere this city has to offer.

So how do you help us recognize Austin’s top bloggers?

  1. Head over to the nomination page and lay it down. (Only one nomination form per email, so make it count!)
  2. Share the nomination page with your friends or fans.
  3. Check back on November 29th to see who the finalists are.
  4. Vote!

Oh yeah, and did I mention there will be a PAR-tay? Yup, we will be honoring the winners at the Bleet-up on December 3rd. The Rooftop Terrace at Whole Foods Downtown plays host to our revelry. Along with an ICE SKATING RINK, there will be a slew of local bands to help you get down. Tolly over at Austin Eavesdropper has the full scoop on the Bleet-up, so head over there to find out all the deets.


This madness was captured at the Summer Bleet-up. WHo knows what madness will ensue at the Bleet-up in December!

    oh crap! i need to make up a list or something because i know i’m going to forget someone. where is a good place to see a list of local bloggers?

  2. November 10, 2010

    i haven’t updated it in a bit… but have about 150 local ones listed in the bottom righthand corner of… have about another 100 bookmarked/googlereader that i’ll ad one of these days… don’t know how you guys stay so consistent… i checkout too much…

    err… i mean add not ad… it’s early and i’ve been hanging out w/ marketing folks to much…

    In a historic sweep, LoneStarters wins every single award, including Best tumblr, even though it isn’t one.

    Kidding aside, this is a great idea. So many great sites to choose from!

    I hope I’m not being to forward, but I’d love to see Best Community Blog, Best Tech Blog, Best GLBTQ blog, Best Personal Blog, and Best Humor Blog categories if you think they’d have a place in the Austin Blogger Awards in the future.

      These are all great suggestions! Some of those we thought about adding, but weren’t sure if there were enough blogs to fill those categories. That’s one of the reasons we left the Write-In category.

        Good point.

        Thanks for doing this in the first place! There are so many wonderful and talented bloggers/writers in Austin and it will be nice to recognize them!
