Tis The Season: You may be confused about the fact which contest is which, but at the end of the year, Jason Davis, Visionary King of the Recruitment Blogosphere – puts on a “Best Blog of the Year” Contest.

Last year there was controversy in that yours truly won twice as many votes as the site awarded. How? Well there was a “popular” vote, and a “Vote By Committee.” Joel Cheesman is a good friend and I love his site and he won the vote by committee. it’s all bygones. I’m a fan of Cheezhead and especially and its founder.

That was the old chapter with, this year as Jason Davis heads up an 800 member vibrant community at – the rules have not only changed to popular vote, but has diversified into a splendid listing of categories.

Of Course, one key aspect to note: BEST OVERALL BLOG – wins the big prize. That means Vegas baby!

    But wait, what about the other contest you already voted for? Yes, true, there is the OTHER great contest held by Craig Silverman’s HIREABILTY. The prize has yet to be announced – I HEAR IT’s HUGE! Hmm is it a 60 inch flat screen tv maybe? Or is it a trip to Hawaii? jk

Maybe Craig will announce it at SixDegrees?

You can Vote Today for “ as Best Overall Blog if you are so inclined – for the Hireability Contest …. next week it will be a whole new and final contest with the event

So to reiterate, two cool contests. But to that end, “Jay Dee” has challenged Craig on “Coolness” with a song. (Mind you I have heard Jay Dee sing, and it is much much better than this example:

    Dear Bull Doza,

    Nice postings about all the contests.

    However, The Recruiting Animal was a member of that prize committee last year. And he admits that the two stream process of popular vote and committee vote was confusing.

    But, as far as I can remember there was no slight of hand involved, no last minute substitution of committee vote for popular vote.

    That would have been unfair and I would have protested.

    And here’s why Jay-Dee chose the committee process for the last two years.

    If the decision is determined by popular vote, the prize could very well go to the best networker who can rustle up tons of votes from people who have no interest in The Recruitosphere.

    Then it’s a networking contest rather than a best blog contest. N’est-ce pas?

    Best Wishes
    The Recruiting Animal

    One of the lines about says nominations “Now until Dec 12”. Transposed digits? Confusing.
