IT Blog Awards, hosted by Cisco - Finalists Voting
Welcome! Below you will find finalists for each of the categories in the IT Blog Awards, hosted by Cisco.
The goal of the IT Blog Awards is to recognize the broader community of IT bloggers and we're thrilled to have had so many talanted bloggers participate.
We reviewed each blog based on content value, credibility, design, and the fit with the categories each blogger chose.
As you're reviewing these please think in terms of what makes a great blog. A few things to consider:
Do the majority of posts (or podcast episodes or videos) provide value? is the information or perspective unique? Can you see yourself sharing this blog (or podcast or video) as a great resource?
Credibility – Does the author (or authors) present their topic in depth? Are arguments well supported? Is it well written?
Consistency – Does the author have a (mostly) consistent cadence or are there occasional hit-and-runs? Do you know what you’re getting into when you click on a link?
Please consider each of the blogs, enjoy discovering some new ones, and congratulate our finalists!
