This is going to be my shortest*, least pretty post ever, but that’s okay!!
The nominations for the Third Annual 2019 Book Blogger Awards have all been counted and totaled, and the top bloggers with the highest amount of votes for each award category have all moved onto Round 2: Voting, where the winners will be determined by your vote!! 400 bloggers were nominated, and a little over 70 have gone on to the next round.
*Note: In my original post introducing the awards, I said you would vote for one blogger out of the top 5. However, in some categories, there was no way I could fairly identify the top 5 (ie. I would have to choose one blogger out of multiple that had the same # of nominations), so there may be more or less than 5 choices!
You are required to be signed into your Google account for security purposes, but that information will not be shared by me. You are not allowed to vote more than twice, and you are allowed to vote for yourself. You do not have to vote in every category, but it’s encouraged to vote in as many as you can. Bloggers are in randomized order. This form will close on Wednesday, July 31, at 11:59 PM CDT, and results will be posted most likely during the week of August 4-10!

[takes deep breath] I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS POST.
Before I start getting even more excited, let me start out with a little explanation: If the title of this post sounds familiar, it’s because a retired book blogger, Joce @ Write Through the Night (who is now a YouTuber!!), used to host annual Book Blogger Awards. (Here are the 2018 winners and the 2017 winners.) But because she’s no longer blogging, these awards weren’t being hosted by anyone anymore.
A week ago, I was reminiscing about my old blogging days (for some ungodly reason, I decided to go back to some of my old posts and read them, then was forced to bleach my eyes afterwards), and I remembered these awards that she’d held. I found her old post and read through all the nominations posts that had been linked back, and was just so full of love for the community and how we’re all so happy to promote and celebrate other bloggers.
As a result of this, I decided to contact Joce about possibly continuing her awards, just because I loved them so much. And, to my great pleasure, she agreed and was even super enthusiastic about the idea!! So today, I’m here with the third annual 2019 Book Blogger Awards and I’m just so!!!!! excited!!!!!
You all know I absolutely LOVE boosting bloggers, because I think we’re all just so amazing and deserve all the appreciation in the world. So I am truly beyond happy to be hosting these awards this year (and hopefully future years), and to see all the blogger love pour in!!!
(Unless you let this flop. Please don’t let this flop.)
