Awarded Top Beach Blog for 2010!

Bill's OBX Beach Life has been awarded one of 30 Top Beach Blogs for 2010 presented by Online Schools!

From Online Schools:
The award winners for this category were announced on August 23, 2010.

This award highlights the very best blogs to learn about the beach and all things related on the internet that were nominated by the internet community, and is designed to thank the authors for their contribution toward the world wide web we all use & enjoy.
Awards candidates are found by one method:
     - Anonymous nominations that are open to the internet community
This allows us to generate a candidate list that is based upon what the internet determines as being good, original content.  After a list of candidates is compiled, we then filter the list to ensure that each site qualifies for the category. We then give the list to be scored by our panel of 5 judges. Each judge rates each blog across 20 different attributes, including content, frequency of updates, amount of advertising, length of posts, and readibility. This then provides the site with a ‘subjective’ score. These ratings are combined into an aggregate total for the 5 judges. The amount of nominations are also converted into a score, and this score combined with the aggregate score gives the blog its final rating.
The ratings are then compared for each site within a category and awards are given out to blogs in the 99% percentile (meaning the top 1% of blogs receive awards).

Sweet!!
