Best of 2017 {Blogging Awards}

Hello! It’s time for the third annual A Barefoot Gal Best of (insert year here)! I have done this in November for the past two years, but I thought it made more sense to wait until the last month in the year. So here I am, and here are the rules:

What is Best of 2017?

Best of 2017 is basically a survey followed by several polls. Everything is voted on by the readers. I only come up with the categories. There are 25 categories this year ranging from “Camera Master” to “Funniest Post” to “Coziest Blog Design”. Thank you to Clara, Hannah, Laura, and K.A. for giving me the ideas for several of the categories!

How do I do this?

Click on the button below to go to the survey. Then you can pick a post/blog/blogger that you think is the best for that category and paste the URL into each box. You MUST link to the actual post if it’s a post category or I will not include it. You can’t just link to “” for the “Lifestyle Post” category. None of the categories are mandatory, so you don’t have to do every category. There’s nothing to stop you from it, but I would like you not to vote for yourself.

What’s after the survey?

The survey closes on December 13th, so the last day to vote on that is the 12th. On the 13th or soon after I will post the next post: Best of 2017 Voting. There will be 25 polls (oh wow, that’s going to take me a long time) with every post/blogger/blog for each category. Example:

Best Collab Blog Example
This was from last year

I’ll link to each post/blogger/blog that was nominated right above the poll so you can visit the posts. If something was nominated more than once I’ll say that, and give it extra “votes” for that.

When will the results be posted?

I’ll give you until December 27th to vote, so I will hopefully be able to post the results before 2018. (Woah, 2018 is in less than a month. Help.)

Is there a prize?

No, not really. I’m guessing your blog will get a little more traffic if you’re nominated or if you win. I’ll also make little “buttons” for the winners that they can display on their blog if they want to. But other than that, no. There’s not really a prize. But it should be fun! 🙂

Now that I’ve explained all the rules, what are you waiting for?

(The survey button might not show up unless you’re on my actual blog.)

I hope you have fun voting! I’m looking forward to seeing what all you picked. 🙂

P.S. To celebrate Christmas I changed my blog header up a bit. I’ll change it back when Christmas is over. The candy cane was drawn by my sister Allison. 🙂

UPDATE: Actually I changed it back, and just added a different graphic and “merry Christmas!” at the bottom.
