You only have until the 10th to submit your blog to the Bloggies
. Jump on it. The prize is especially significant:
Because of the large amount of categories, I won’t personally give a award to every winner, but the Weblog of the Year owner(s) will receive 2,006 US cents (US$20.06).
Seriously though, the traffic you’ll gain is more than worth the paltry prize. Also, it’d be cool to be nominated, even if you do it yourself.

Poulson has helped dozens of companies create a corporate blogging policy. Here, she shares her strategy for coming up with a policy that works.”
Assemble the blogging team. Take time to find out what you want to achieve, then write, with your team, the policy that will accomplish those objectives.
