I was recently contacted by the Woodworkers Guild of America and asked if I would like to participate in their Blogger Awards competition. I was honored to be asked and I have entered in their “Hand Tool Blog” category. There are 5 categories, and I felt that “Hand Tool Blog” was the one that most closely matched my blog. Unfortunately, they didn’t have a category for “Quirky 4-Vise Roubo Benches and Chicken Coops”, as I think I’d have been as shoe-in for that line up.
Initially, I thought that only one nomination was needed, but I have since discovered that the number of nominations matters. The five blogs with the most nominations in each category will move on to a round in which people can then vote for their favorite.
If you like The Bench Blog, and would like to nominate it for this completion, I’d sure appreciate your nomination. It takes about a minute.
You can go to http://go.wwgoa.com/wwgoabloggerawards-1/ to make a nomination or you can click the badge image below:
I also nominated my friend Gerhard Marx at Je Ne Sais Quoi Woodworking, who’s blog is awesome. He makes fantastic stuff!
I think it is fantastic that an organization wants to promote and recognize the great variety of woodworking blogs out there. Do you have a favorite woodworking blog? Why not nominate them as well?
