(Pre) Announcing the BaGo Awards!

We're coming up on the one-year anniversary of the blog (first post was 11/27/11), and I wanted to do something special for it, but not for me -- for all the other bloggers out there plugging away every day.

So here's what I have in mind -- The BaGo Awards (or the soon to be known simply as the BaGo). Send me your suggestions and I'll
present the best of the best blogs out there for and by writers. Here are a few of the categories I propose. What categories would you add? (not blogs yet... I'll announce the call for those as soon as we get the categories hammered out.)

Best In Show Awards 
for INDIVIDUAL writers who are primarily genre-specific who maintain a blog about their work in that genre and the genre itself
  • Horror
  • Pulp
  • Fantasy
  • Sci-Fi
  • Mystery
  • Thriller
  • Steampunk
  • Comics and Graphic Novels

Best in Craft Award
for the best instructional/inspirational resource blog to make writers better at their craft

Most Beautiful Soul Award 
for the best, personal blog from a writer who uses his or her platform to "bare the soul" as the cliche goes

Best Group Blog Award 
for those blogs maintained by a group of writers, whether focused on genres, news, interviews, reviews or a combination of them

Best in Reviews Award 
for the best blog that focuses primarily on book reviews, can be be a writer blog or reader blog in this category 

Welcome to the Club Award

Any other suggestions?
