2013 Bloggies – Nomination Round


People of Holland!

Your leader needs you!

… and all expats, tourists, visitors, people from other countries that are not Holland and everybody else (although I’m not technically ‘your’ leader I would really appreciate your help too).

You might recall that, last year, thanks to your amazing help and support I was privileged enough to be nominated in The Best European Blog category of the 2012 bloggies (also known as the Weblog Awards). Although I didn’t win being nominated alone was amazing and resulted in me being in the newspaper, on the radio and even on television.

Now it is time for the 2013 bloggie awards and I wish to ask for your help once more as I try to repeat last year’s success. The more nomination a blog receive the better its chances of getting into the next round. So here is how you can help:

Step 1: Click Link
Click on this link which will take you directly to the Best European Blog category of the 2013 Bloggies: http://2013.bloggi.es/#european

Step 2: Nomination Selection
Enter the name and web address of your three (or more) favourite blogs (in any catagory). Hopefully one of them is www.invadingholland.com in the Best European Blog catagory. I would be very grateful if it is.

Step 3: Email Confirmation
Scroll to the bottom of the page to enter your email address and submit your nomination. Then check your email for a nomination confirmation (you might need to check your spam folder). This step is very important. If you don’t click the link in this email your nomination is not actually registered.

Step 4: Share
Share this information with friends, family, colleagues, pets, strangers on the street and everyone else in-between.You can also do this by using the share buttons at the bottom of this post.

In return you will receive my eternal thanks and gratitude which comes with an official certificate and lifetime guarantee. Leave your email address in the comment to receive yours (it’s real).

The nomination round closes on January the 27th until February the 24th when voting for the winner begins. check back here then for more information. If you would like more information about the rules and procedure click here.

  8. Invader_Stu says:

    Small update: It seems that the verification email that gets sent out is ending up in a lot of peoples spam folder so you might need to check there. With out clicking the link in that email the process is not complete. I’ve already updated the post with this information.

  9. Voted! (And I was just about to comment saying to tell your readers to check their spam box for the verification e-mail. :P )

  10. Invader_Stu says:

    Barb – Thanks :D It ended up in your spam too? I’ve only heard of one person that has not happened to so far.

  11. dragon lady says:

    Stuart, can you tell me how to get the e mail addresses from blogs because I always just go through a link and when you try to vote they won’t just take the name of the blog they want the URL as well.

  12. Likeahike says:

    Hmm..I ran into trouble. They require three nominees and I only read this blog. I’d better browse for some blogs to fill the other two spots.

  13. Invader Stu says:

    Dragon Lady – I’ll send you an email :)

    Likeahike – You can also check out some of the blogs in the side bar to the right. If you want any suggestions let me know.

    I didn’t even hesitate to nominate you! I lived in Holland for 2 and a half years, returning back to England in 2011 and I visit your blog regularly the get my fix of my second home. It never fails to make me smile and chuckle to myself as I remember the Dutch way of life. *sigh* oh to be back there!

    Good luck Stu!!

  15. Catina says:

    Voted! Good luck Stu!

  16. Sheila says:

    You deserve it, yours is by far one of my favorites european blogs.
    I’ve recently moved yo this small country and you make life in The Netherlands much easier and amusing.
    Best of luck!

  17. MissNeriss says:

    Done, good luck! I love coming here. To be honest, I don’t visit all the time because I like to save the posts to read all at once. Like a guilty pleasure.

  18. Stephanie says:

    Done! Have also done a little sneaky promotion for you :)
