Blogisattva Awards

By Tricycle

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past month (probably not a bad idea in the northeast given the relentless heat) you’ve probably heard about the Blogisattva Awards. (Disclosure: I’m on the Judges’ Panel. Further disclosure: I haven’t done anything at all yet.) Kyle Lovett of The Reformed Buddhist (recently interviewed here on Shambhala SunSpace by Rod Meade Sperry) and Nate DeMontigny of Precious Metal have single… er, double-handedly revived the Blogisattvas. You’ll be sure to see your favorite Buddhist bloggers there at the awards (sorry, no red carpet yet) as well as many new faces. It’s one of the best ways to find Buddhist blogs you might otherwise have missed, and that’s really the point. The Blogisattvas site is very nice-looking and contains this nifty badge:

Add it to your blog if you like. There will probably be another badge for winners, after the judging is done later this year. Make a hard-working Buddhist blogger’s day! Nominate a deserving blog here. Follow the Blogisattvas on Twiiter.

Great job and thank you to Kyle and Nate, and a thank you to all the Buddhist bloggers providing the rest of us with great dharma to read day after day.

The Blogisattva Awards

By Tricycle

The Blogisattva Awards, begun by Tom Armstrong several years ago to recognize excellence in Buddhist blogging, have been revived by Kyle of The Reformed Buddhist and Nate of Precious Metal. You can nominate a particular blog, blogger, or blogpost for any one fo the following categories:

  • Blog of the year, Svaha!
  • Best Post of the Year
  • Best Achievement in Skilled Writing
  • Best Achievement Blogging on Buddhist Practice or Dharma
  • Best Buddhist Practice Blog
  • Best “Life” Blog
  • Best Blogging on Matters Philosophical, Psychological or Scientific
  • Best Achievement in Kind and Compassionate Blogging
  • Best Achievement Blogging Opinion Pieces or about Political Issues
  • Best Engage-the-World Blog
  • Best Achievement in Design
  • Best Achievement in Wide Range of Topic Interests Blogging
  • Best Achievement with Humor in a Blog Post

Check out some past winners from 2006, 2007 and 2008. Submit your nominations here. There are many, many Buddhist blogs out there (Kyle is up to 180 and he’s not done counting yet) and ideally the Blogisattvas would be awarded to less well known blogs and bloggers that may reach fewer readers but are still moving, excellent, brilliant, and/or hilarious. Take a minute to think about a blogpost you’ve read this year (the official time frame upon with the awards will be given is December 1, 2009 to November 1, 2010) and nominate that blogger for his or her hard work. it only takes a minute, and can really make a difference to someone working hard every day with little recognition.
