How were winners determined?

Through our survey with nearly 300 responses, we were able to collect individiual’s top 10 blogs as picked from our list of 65, and then have them ranked in order from 1-10. We also were able to have voters pick their top blog from each category  amongst the list of blogs in that same category.

We used a point system for the top 10 rankings, with 1st place votes counting for 100 points, 2nd for 90, and so on to #10. From this we added up points to determine rankings for the overall blogs. Category winners were picked based on the number of votes within their respective category.
