Yet another BHH

We didn't have one for December (thought we deserved a break) but we are back for yet another Blogger's Happy Hour in January.

This time around it is on Thursday 24th January 2008 at 6.30pm at Mateos, as usual.

It is also time for the UBOB. For those of you who do not know what this is, it is the annual Ugandan Best Of Blogs Awards. Please e-mail your suggestions for categories and nominations for the ones suggested below to or come with them to this months BHH. I am putting up the parameters we used for the awards last year, please let us know using the comment section if there are any particular changes you want to see.

The first annual Uganda Best of Blogs competition was based on the following categories

  • Ugandan blog of the year — open to any blog written by a Ugandan or focusing on Uganda

  • Best post — The single best piece in the Ugandan blogosphere

  • Best blog in Uganda — Written by anyone living in Uganda in 2007

  • Best overseas Ugandan blog — Any Uganda-focused or Ugandan-authored blog written in a foreign country

  • Best writing — Intelligent, witty, feisty, eloquent or just plain funny

  • Best design — Best overall design and layout

  • Best photography — Best photo taken by a Ugandan blogger and posted on his or her blog

To be considered for the 2007 Uganda BOB awards, blogs must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Have dated entries

  • Have existed at some point during 2007

  • Be written by a Ugandan, by a non-Ugandan living in Uganda, or be focused on Uganda

In the nomination phase,

  • URLs are required for all nominated blogs

  • The maximum number of blogs you may nominate for a category is two (2) for most categories and three (3) for Ugandan blog of the year

  • You must nominate at least three (3) different blogs total — no flogging of one blog for numerous categories

  • You may nominate your own blog, but the nominations for your own blog must be less than one third of your total (legitimate) nominations

  • There is no limit to the number of categories for which a blog may be nominated

  • Nominees have to fit the category they are placed in

After BHH, the nominations will be open for one month, till the February BHH on 28th February 2008.
