It’s official, EvinOK is in the running for the V by Very Blog Awards Ireland 2017. And I could not have done it without you!
To earn a place on the longlist, EvinOK was vetted by the Awards Blog Team to make sure my blog is up-to-date with regular content/posts and that I live in Ireland. EvinOK made it to the longlist in two categories, Lifestyle Blog and Arts & Craft Blog. EvinOK was also longlisted in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016.
The next step is for EvinOK to be critiqued by a panel of judges and scored against a set of predetermined criteria. Some of the elements evaluated are the overall blog design, the reading experience, the knowledge of the writer (that’s me), and EvinOK’s viewing experience on computers and mobile. If all goes well for this phase of judging, EvinOK has a chance of making the shortlist. EvinOK made the shortlist in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2016.
IF EvinOK makes the shortlist, it will then be judged by industry experts on how engaging and entertaining the posts are while still possessing informative writing. There is an emphasis on the consistency of EvinOK and having all the nooks and crannies tended to. Of course, the judges also compare blogs within the same category to see what makes each unique and set apart. EvinOK was a finalist in 2013, 2014, and 2016. EvinOK won in 2014.
In 2016, my day job blog, the Teamwork.com blog, earned the Best Corporate Marketing Blog category award, which was a win for me and my team. You can read my posts for the Teamwork.com blog here in my writing portfolio.
The process challenges me to bring EvinOK to a better level each year.
