I am really happy to announce that we are launching the first edition of the MiB Awards! When we started Made in Blog a year and a half ago, our main goal was to develop better relationships between brands and Canadian bloggers all while making sure bloggers received greater visibility and recognition for their talent. The MiB Awards therefore represent the culmination of many months of work and especially the desire to promote Canadian bloggersin all categories.
We are very pleased to announce today the launch of the Made in Blog Awards 2014! You were more than 700 bloggers last year to participate in the Made in Blog Awards and this enthusiasm shown by all the bloggers of the country revealed the dynamism of the Canadian blogosphere.
It was such a great pleasure to read your articles last year and learn more about your motivations for blogging, we were touched to see this strong relationship between you and your readers that is also one of the main reasons that makes us love our job every day at Made in Blog. The blogosphere is large and varied and it is this diversity that we want to celebrate. All your articles about the Made in Blog Awards will be shared in a dedicated Facebook album dedicated (as we did last year, see here) to give you a maximum visibility!
At Made in Blog we have always been keen to promote the blogosphere and to develop better relationships between brands and Canadian bloggers. The Made in the Blog Awards therefore represent the realization of this philosophy that drives us every day and our desire to highlight the Canadian bloggers in all categories.
Everyone who blog or vlog is eligible to participate in the MiB Awards. Sign up and get noticed by new brands, which could lead to future collaborations and bring on new readers to increase your audience!
