For those of you who have been following along, Upper Deck has been soliciting noms for their awards that celebrate different parts of the Hobby’s social media. Voting is scheduled to start today, and SCU should be among the blogs with a chance to win. As soon as the link is up, ill post here so that you can vote on the Facebook page. Even if SCU is not considered for the award, be sure to vote for your favorites, as everyone definitely deserves the consideration.
Here is the link to UD’s facebook page where Voting will take place.
For the winner of each of the categories, Upper Deck is providing a bunch of giveaways that look to be pretty epic. They have announced that one of the prizes will be a football signed by all the attendees of the 2009 Rookie Premiere, meaning Sanchez, Harvin, Stafford, Moreno and such. They will also get a bunch of other stuff to give away, which I am excited at the possibility of doing.
Hopefully you will vote for this site, as I have worked extremely hard to make SCU worthy of your support. Otherwise, I will be first in line to congratulate the winner.
This year is a first for these types of things, but I think it bears mentioning here. Over on twitter and possibly facebook, Upper Deck is soliciting collector votes for their favorites of the net. Award categories include collector of the year, blog of the year, forum of the year, and the like.
As a person who puts a ton of work into this site, I would love your support for Blog of the Year, but I am not eligible because I contribute to UD’s site. Therefore, throw your support to who you feel did the best job this year, and hopefully, they will be recognized.
You can nominate blogs and collectors by responding to Upper Deck’s facebook page, and im sure their website will also be a hub for vote collecting. Even if you are not going to be voting for this blog, I encourage you to support your favorites by checking out the contest.
