Every year, the About Readers’ Choice Awards showcase the best products, people, organizations, and services in multiple categories, from technology to hobbies to parenting to religion. The readers of About.com make the nominations; each About.com Guide chooses the finalists (up to five in each category) from among the nominees; and the readers and others vote to choose one of the finalists as the best in the category for that year.

The About.com Catholicism GuideSite first participated in the Readers’ Choice Awards in 2011, and the response was overwhelming, with thousands of nominations and tens of thousands of votes. The process begins every year in January with the nominating round, followed in February by the voting round, with the winners announced in March.

Read on to find the schedule for this year’s About Catholicism Readers’ Choice Awards, followed by descriptions of each of the ten categories, and links to the nomination forms (when nominations are open) or polls (during the voting round). You will also find links to both the finalists and the winners for previous years in each category.

In previous years I never got around to promoting this. I was just to humble to promote this to my readers. Well really I wanted to appear humble by not promoting my blog for this reader’s choice award. So since I already had a humble-fail I might as well promote it, I mean recommend people vote for their favorite blogs which just might not be this one. Really though this goes way beyond just blogs to pretty much every area of Catholic media.

  1. Your humility is complete because I can’t get the links to work. 🙂

  2. I think it is really great that this year you are actually getting over being too shy and humble to actually getting this out there. A little promotion doesn’t kill you know. Good luck!
