Paying Forward Awards: February Categories

Hey again, lovely people! Welcome to February's Paying Forward Awards. Before we start, I just want to say thanks to every single one of this month's amazing sponsors. Within a few days, they generously gave me so many prizes to distribute that February is almost TWICE as big as January.

Without further ado, here are the prizes and the sponsors who donated them.

An absolute treasure trove of prizes. Fourteen in total, which means I'm once again giving prizes to first and second place in each category.

And the categories are:

Best Commenter

Giver of Best Writing Advice

Most Supportive/Helpful Blogger

Sweetest Blogger

Unpublished Blogger with Awesome Writing Style

Published Blogger with Awesome Writing Style

Most Useful Blog

Nominations work like this:

You can nominate as many bloggers as you'd like, for as many categories as you'd like. I'd love if you included a short motivation for each nominee. Please don't nominate in the comments. I like to keep this process anonymous, so only nominations to my e-mail address will be taken into account.

My e-mail address is mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com. Please make the topic "Nomination". I'll be accepting nominations until midnight (GMT), February 21.

Voting will open on February 22.

So people! Any nominees in mind? Don't forget to check out today's News Day post for other interesting tidbits.

Wow Misha, what a lot of prizes. Excellent. I would definitely nominate Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar, for best commenter. Her comments are eagerly anticipated, highly cherished and yes, award winning, collectable comments. I would say that, wouldn't I? LOL

All the best with this Misha and happy writing.

Penny's human,

Gary :)
