Topics and Blog Format

The 2012 contest covers 17 sections and more than 200 lifestyle and entertainment categories, so there should be something for almost everyone. When you are submitting a guest post, please follow one of these formats:

  • Your Own Top 5 List – if you area of expertise is directly aligned with a BOWW category, this is your opportunity to go beyond just one vote and show off your vast knowledge. For example, if your blog focuses on beer, write about the 5 Best Beer Bars in the area.
  • Your Ballot Expanded – select 5 categories that you are passionate about and add some detail and color to who you voted for and why. Definitely tell us about any tough choices you had to make between nominees and feel free pull in comments from likeminded voters.
  • Best of Neighborhoods – if you blog about or are a satisfied resident of a neighborhood in Seattle or a suburb, tell us about 5 nominees you are supporting and why.

Submission Guidelines

First and foremost, we are looking for useful posts that tell our audience something they don't already know. It's okay, if you have written about this topic elsewhere, but guest posts must be unique and cannot be posted anywhere else online.

We encourage you to bring your own tone and voice to the blog post, but we do appreciate a well-written piece as well. It’s ok to break grammatical rules every now and then, but focus on clarity and the content.
