The 11th Annual Cardinal Blogger Awards Ballot

When I started gathering bloggers into a working group back in the 2007 offseason, the first project we tackled was voting on awards for that year.  The process has expanded over the years to include not only what happened on the field but to also acknowledge and recognize the bloggers and podcasters that attempt to entertain and educate throughout the year.  Each blogger votes by posting their selections on their blog in an effort to be transparent about the whole thing.

We’ve also added in a reader/follower component.  You can also vote on these awards and all the fan votes are summed up into one ballot, which is then added to all the blogger ballots to determine the winners.  Voting on that can be done on this form and we encourage you to do so!  Voting is open until November 30.

So here are this year’s awards and the nominees!
