Blogger Awards 2006 Categories

These are the categories that were suggested. Please send in your nominees and I will add them as they come in. Thanks to all those who have participated so far. I can see why INEC has issues here in Nigeria lol.

I have also nominated a Panel of Judges-Bella naija,London Buki, Mona and Azuka. Please let me know if you can't be in the Panel. Basically all you need to do is confirm if the nominees deserve to be nominees by looking at the blogs and to eventually select the winner. Thanks
