Nominations for the 2016 Top vBlog voting categories are now open!

vsphere-land-top-vblog2016-logoJust like prior years in addition to the traditional top 50 voting I’m opening it up to allow voting in specific categories as well to help distinguish certain types of blogs. To do this I have created a form to allow you to nominate your blog or website for one of the categories that I have defined if your blog fits one or more of the categories, if it does not then don’t nominate it as all blogs on the vLaunchpad will automatically be included in the general top blog voting.

This form is not the general voting poll for the top VMware/virtualization blogs, this form is only to nominate your blog for certain categories if it fits. Once the nominations are collected I will open the polls for voting for the top blogs where voters will be able to rate their top 10 blogs and also vote in each of the categories.

You should only nominate your own blog/website, these nominations will be used to populate the category choices when voting opens. If your blog doesn’t fit one of these categories then do not nominate it, all blogs on the vLaunchPad will automatically be included in the general top blog voting. If your blog is not currently listed on the vLaunchPad use this form to let me know (I still have some recent submissions that I am adding to it).

The criteria for the categories to see if your blog qualifies for them are as follows:

  • Best New Blog – Blog must have been started in 2015
  • Best Storage Blog – Must have greater than 50% posts as storage related
  • Best Independent Blog – Must not work for VMware or a Technology Partner (i.e. EMC, Dell, IBM, Unitrends, etc.), basically this means customers, resellers and integrators only.
  • Best Scripting Blog – Must have greater than 50% posts as scripting related
  • Best VDI Blog – Must have greater than 50% posts as VDI related
  • Best Podcast – Easy one, you must have a podcast
  • Best Female Blogger – Special recognition for women in tech, must be a female blogger

    If you have “Best Storage Blog” why is there no “Best Net Blog” category ?

    I used to have that category but really was not getting many blogs in it so I removed it.

    Suggestion: replace Best Scripting Blog with Best Programming Blog, or something similar. “Scripting” makes it a bit too narrow, IMO.

    Best “Non-English” blog!
    There are lot´s of non-English blogs out there and it´s so hard to compete with English bloggers….
    Cheers,
