We are proud to be hosting the monthly Best of the 'Betes Blogs (BBB) for the month of October!
But we need your help!
Nominations will remain open through the end of day Monday, Oct. 29 to make sure we can include as many of the great posts in our community as possible.

The pair came up with the idea way back in 2010, with the aim of shining a spotlight on the many, many great blog posts from around our community. This online universe of ours is ever-expanding, with new bloggers and advocates joining us almost daily. We know it can be tough to keep up. That's why we host a monthly DOC Blog Roundup here at the 'Mine with a smattering of our favorite picks each month.
The Best of the 'Betes Blogs effort is an especially fun take on a roundup, encouraging people to nominate favorite blog posts in some unique categories. BBB is hosted by a different blogger within the DOC each month; George and Sara still catalog all the nominations and send them along to the host, who picks the winners and publishes the results.
