2008 Winners
Indeed, blogging is a passion. Most do it as it is part of their identity, being, and purpose. 

Whatever gets you going that makes you blog your heart out or share your professional expertise, let your uniqueness make you extraordinary. Your difference is what makes you as a blogger and your blog shine.

I look forward welcoming and congratulating the 2015 winners this October 10 at the Digital Influencers Marketing Summit.
