Nominations are now open for the best blog post on any topic published at any point in time on a blog whose general theme tends towards the biblical.
The prize is an Eisenbrauns Gift Certificate for the winner and of course prestige and one’s name in lights (well maybe bold font).
Nominees cannot nominate themselves… Anyone wishing to nominate a blog post should visit this link, September Giveaway – Eisenbrauns Gift Certificate(s), and simply leave the url for the nominated blog post in the comments section there.
Once all the nominations have been received there will be a voting period.
The nominator of the winning nominee will also receive a gift certificate.
