Yesterday, we welcomed the beginning of the Public Vote for the UK Blog Awards 2017 which attracted over 24,000 votes and 44,000 unique visits to the website to view the talent that is entered into the 2017 awards process. Each year your strong community surpasses our expectations and the traffic and votes doubled since 2016 – the search for the UK Blog Awards Blog Hero and Heroine is on!
As you know, digital content is focused around public opinion and interest, therefore the public vote is a clear expression of the 'people's voice' and a chance for your readership to support you and show their blog love.
Therefore, we thought it would be rude not to discuss the community support of the blogosphere and afterall, this goodwill ties in nicely with the spirit of Christmas. The question is, will your faves make the shortlist this Christmas?
