Blogging from the Boot: The Best of 2009 FAQs

By: Cherrye Moore

Earlier this week we announced Blogging from the Boot: The Best of 2009, the blogging contest that is open to any and all expat bloggers who lived in Italy in 2009. We’ve received a great response in the first few days and have been asked a few questions that could be helpful to other expats.

Blogging From the Boot: The Best of 2009 FAQs

Q: How many posts can I submit?

A: There is no limit to the number of posts you can submit in any category. The categories are listed here.

Q: Do I submit my own posts or can I submit posts written by other expats in Italy?

A: You can nominate any post that was written by an expat in Italy and published in 2009. So, if your best blogging friend is a stellar writer with heaps of interesting posts on her blog-go ahead and nominate them. You will use the same entry form to nominate as you would to submit your own posts.

Q: Does the post I submit have to have been published on my blog?

A: It has to have been published on a blog, not necessarily yours. If you wrote a guest post on another blog that fits in one of the categories, feel free to submit it, as well.

Q: Are there prizes for the winners?

A: Oh yea … the first place winner in each category will receive local Perugian chocolate and a banner to display on their websites.

Q: How is the contest being judged?

A: Affordable Calling Cards has secured five Expat in Italy judges who will choose finalists for each category. On February 1 the finalists will be announced on this website.

Between Monday, February 1-Friday, February 5 (at 5:00 PM, Italy time) visitors to this site will vote for their favorite entry in each category. Winners will be announced on Monday, February 8, 2010.
