Think you have what it takes to snag the title of “Black Blogger of the Year” away from Marc Polite’s Polite on Society blog? Does your audience hang on your every word? Do you know a blog that you can’t live without? If so, nominate your favorite Black Blogger right now.

Eligibility Criteria

Black Bloggers must be Black-owned blogs or be largely focused on Black culture. For example, a recent nomination for Growing Up Blackxican was accepted because the blog focuses on raising children whose father is African American. In that same note, Black Entertainment TV’s BET.com is also accepted because it is focused on Black culture, despite not being owned by Black people. So, please feel free to submit blogs that you think fit the criteria.
