2009-2010 Best of Blogging Results!

After a good month of consideration and evaluation, the votes for the sixth annual Best of Blogging competition are in! The purpose of the BoBs is simple: to identify and celebrate the applicant and student bloggers who have shared their lives with the online MBA community over the last year. The wisdom and knowledge that each nominee provided to their readers will last long after their own time in b-school has come to an end, leaving a proverbial ‘treasure trove’ for future applicants and students alike.

Without any further adieu, or fanfare, here are the winners of this year’s competitions!

Our warmest congratulations to all BoB nominees and especially to Dream Chaser and Orlando! We’ll be getting in touch with the winners this week to solidify prize selection and distribution. The prizes for this year’s competition were an iPod touch or $300 Amazon.com gift certificate for the winners, and the choice of a 6-month subscription to either the Wall Street Journal or Financial Times for the second and third place bloggers.

Clear Admit would like to thank the Peter Johnson, Soojin Kwon Koh and Brad Garrison for taking the time to delve deep into the great pool of b-school bloggers and act as this year’s celebrity judging panel. Also, a big hand must go out to the entire MBA blogging community, nominated or not, without whom the BoB awards would not be possible. It is a pleasure and a privilege to follow the lives of so many interesting b-school applicants and students. We’re looking forward to another great year of following the application and MBA experience – happy reading and writing!
