Annual CYT Top 50 Personal Development Blog Awards 2012


It’s that time of year again where you can nominate your favourite personal development blog of 2012.

Last years event attracted 208 nominations – you can see last years nominees here, and over 600 people voted for their favourite personal development blog.  With the winner being Ken Wert from Meant to Be Happy

Personal development means different things to different people so any blog that has enhanced your life in any way can be nominated.

How it will work

If you wish to nominate a blog leave a comment below and please follow these rules:

To make the list of nominees a blog has to be voted for at least 3 times 

Each person can vote for ONLY ONE blog

Include the web address for your nomination

Write a few lines as to why you have voted for your favourite

You can nominate yourself but remember another two people have to vote for you in order for you to make it to the nominations board below.

How the top 50 will be calculated

This is the tricky part and it is really difficult to do something like this without bringing in an element of subjectivity.  So here’s the fairest way I can think of to calculate the top 50 in a measured way without too much subjectivity.  Each factor will be weighted with a % as follows:

Number of nominations – 15%

Number of posts per week over last 2 months – 15%

Average number of comments over last 2 months – 15%

Social Media influence using Klout – 15%

Quality of posts – 40%

If your name appears on the table below you can use these badges:

What the winners will receive

Besides the kudos, and the traffic, each top 50 blogger will be able to display this badge on their site:

The nominations table

I will add each nomination, providing they meet the criteria set above.  If your blog appears in this table you can use the badges saying you have been nominated.

Nominations will close on Monday December the 10th
