ATTENTION MIT2412: New blogging award!

Have you thought blogging awards such as "The Lemonade Stand" award were pretty fun and awesome? Well, now you too could potentially have an award for your blog!

Every week, we're required to post 5 blog posts. We're all busy university students, so, naturally some weeks will have more / better quality posts than others. Why not be rewarded for time and effort spent on them!

Here's the lowdown:
  1. At the end of the week, nominate 3 other blogs of students in MIT2412.
  2. Over the weekend, think about who you think the award should go to.
  3. On the following Monday, make a blog post about who you've selected as the winner!
  4. The winner can then make a blog post and place one of the following images on their blog. Their post should also have a backlink to the person who gave the award to them. Don't just pick your friends, explain why you nominated them.
  5. The person who passes the award on can add a smaller version of the trophy to their sidebar, using the HTML widget code at the bottom of this post.
  6. To be fair, you may only win once!
A day late, but I'll get us started. Here are my nominees:
  1. Laur Lore: Exploring Lunacy, Lies, and Folklore - Her posts are more complete than an encyclopedia.
  2. Thinking: Revised - Plentiful and well thought out posts, written in a quizzical writing style.
  3. Magda and the Great White North - She will not get off my feed! ... Which means she's posting quite a bit.
Check back on Monday to see who won!!

Here are various images you may link to, depending on the color scheme in your blog:


(The last photo has a transparent background. Blogger puts in the border...)

and here is the picture and HTML widget code for your "I'm a previous winner" sidebar:
<div style="border: 0px; text-align: center; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;">
<a style="text-align: center; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" href="http://flavourfiasco.blogspot.com/2009/03/attention-mit2412-new-blogging-award.html"><img style="border: 0px none ;" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_Q68rWxXV8VI/SbLA7CzZ4UI/AAAAAAAAAIg/B7BqpH8BglA/s320/award_small.png" /></a>
<p style="text-align: center; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;">I've won the 'MIT 2412: Best week in blogging' award!</p>
</div>

Copy and paste that code into an HTML sidebar widget and you're ready to rock.
