We begin by awarding our 2009 PlanetPOV Founder’s Award to…our loyal and talented members who joined The Planet in 2009! PlanetPOV officially launched just five months ago but thanks to your strong support and contributions, it is a growing and thriving blog, a remarkable community with an open, intelligent and adult atmosphere like none other! Congrats all the way around!
There have been so many amazing posts published at The Planet in 2009, more than we could possibly nominate, so if your favorite post isn’t listed, we hope you’ll understand (and know that you’re in great company!). In narrowing down the nominees, we did lean towards articles that were more comprehensive to acknowledge the amount of work and time invested.
In some cases, you will see multiple articles nominated from the same member in the same category. We’re trying to nominate based on the quality of the article, not the member. And naturally, members who have been at The Planet longer have written more posts in more categories so they are more likely to have more posts nominated.
This is not intended to be a popularity contest, we really appreciate your being as fair as possible with your votes, voting solely on the quality of the article and not the author.
Our nominees for top posts of 2009 are listed below, linked to the actual article. We do hope that before you vote, you’ll click on and read the posts below, especially those that you haven’t read before.
There are 7 categories and multiple votes allowed in most. You don’t need to vote in all categories at the same time, you can return to this post to vote in categories you haven’t voted for yet but please do try to vote in each category as soon as possible.
Voting will end one week from today, at midnight on Monday, Jan 11th.
Once you have voted in a category, your vote(s) can’t be changed and you can’t vote again in that category, even if you didn’t vote for as many selections as possible.
And now, the nominees in each category, in alphabetical order:
