How to Get the Most Out of Your Nomination
The day that you are nominated for an award of any kind, you can’t help but feel like you have a little more pep in your step.
The heavens are shining a little brighter on you. You might even do a little fist-pump and a hop while yelling, “YEAH!”
Being nominated for an Infinity Blog Award is the Grammy of all blogging awards!
However, you choose to celebrate, do it big. You have worked hard and you have earned this recognition.
You deserve to be acknowledged for the long hours, sleepless nights, and countless cups of coffee. All those times you wanted to quit but didn’t are paying off now.
Once you are done celebrating your nomination, it is time to consider what you can do to get the most out of your nomination.
Don’t just keep it to yourself! Tell others about it. Tell them you have been recognized for an Infinity Blog Award.
Here are a few ways you can get the most out of your nomination to ensure that others also recognize you and your hard work.
Tell Your Circle
We all have a circle of friends and family who are always ready to support us and celebrate our success with them.
For me, it’s my mother and spouse whom I go to first when I have great news to share. Who is in your circle? Give them a call, send them a text, or email them with your news!
Be sure to share the link for the Infinity Blog Awards nomination so that they can see what people are saying about you.

Who will you share your news with?
Include the Award Nominee Badge on Your Site
When you see a preview for a new movie, oftentimes the preview will include a print next to an actor’s face showing you that they have been nominated for an award like a Grammy or an Academy Award.
This shows the viewer that the actor in the movie is stellar and it persuades you to consider going to see that movie when it finally reaches theaters just so you can see that actor’s remarkable performance.
With the success of having an audience viewing your website and continuing to add new views every day, show your readers that they are in the presence of greatness!
Show them that you have been nominated for excellence. This gives them even more of a reason to follow you on your blogging journey to see what you will accomplish next.
