Social Work Blog Awards 2010

Welcome to the Social Work Blog Awards 2010!

I thought of creating this page for the purpose of hosting the Blog Awards.

My idea was to divide this event in three distinct periods of time, it would begin with a submitting stage in which all bloggers and readers will be asked to submit their favourite blogs on all social work categories presented.

A few simple rules should be considered during the submitting stage:

  • All blogs should be for or by social workers.
  • All participants have the possibility of submitting up to four blogs per category.
  • Participants may submit their own blogs for consideration, once per category.
  • All submissions should be made using the comments below.
  • The four most submitted blogs will then give place to the final four nominees of each category.

Once the final four nominees of each category are known, it will then take place the voting stage, in which all participants will be given the right to vote once per category.

After the voting stage, the results will be revealed and the awards will be given to the winners.

As mentioned above, there will be seven social work categories, which are the following:

  • Adoption/Fostering: this category should include blogs written under the topic of adoption or fostering services.
  • Children and Families: this category should include blogs written under the topic of Children and Families social services.
  • Diary/Personal: this category should include blogs written by social workers or social work students who maintain a journal about their activities.
  • Educational: this category should include blogs written for or by social workers with educational value.
  • Informative/Policies: this category should include blogs of informative nature about social work policies, news, etc.
  • Adult Social Services: this category should include blogs written under the topic of Adult Social Services and includes palliative social work .
  • Mental Health: this category should include blogs written under the topic of mental health services.

The submitting stage will last until the 1st of September 2010, followed by the voting stage until the 31st of December 2010. And the results will be announced on the 1st of January 2011.

If any of you would like to help promoting the Blog Awards, you can use the “official” banner and just copy/paste this html into your blog:

<a href=”https://activesocialwork.wordpress.com/social-work-blog-awards-2010/””><img title=”Social Work Blog Awards 2010″ src=”https://activesocialwork.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/2010blogawardsmodern.png?w=123&amp;h=151”&#8221; alt=””&quot;” width=””123″” height=””151″” /></a>

I have also created a template so that everyone can simply copy/paste in order to make the submission process easier.
