Sarasota, FL (WorkersCompensation.com) – The winners of the second annual Best Blogs contest for the workers' compensation industry were announced today on WorkersCompensation.com. The contest is designed to identify and honor outstanding original content available for the workers' comp community. Twenty-one blogs made the final cut for inclusion to this year's list. Additionally, six blogs were listed in an "Honorable Mentions" section.
This year's program has been dedicated to the late David DePaolo, who was a prolific and influential blogger for the industry. His blog, DePaolo's Work Comp World, was a consistent favorite for people from all sectors of the workers' compensation industry. DePaolo was killed last July in a motorcycle accident.
The blogs were all nominated by citizens of the workers' compensation community. They were judged on several criteria. In addition to objective categories such as age of blog, frequency of posting and website traffic, they were also assessed by an independent judging panel for content quality, value and timeliness. The designated blog category was determined by people nominating the blog. In the event of multiple nominations, the category selected by the majority of nominators was used.
Due to the strength of a few categories, several blogs that scored well and would have otherwise been recognized did not make the list. The following blogs, due to rules limitations on number of winners per category, could not be listed with above designees. They certainly deserve recognition and are therefore recommended by the Best Blogs management team.
