Best Youth Ministry Blog post of 2012 | Round 2 and the top 34

in Best Blog Post of 2012 on December 12, 2012by Ben_Read

Over 2,600 people cast a vote in Round 1, and those that moved on varied from nearly 150 votes to 18, which is quite the parity, but we know some have a strategy.
Only 32 were supposed to advance to this round, but since there was a 3 way tie for 32nd place, we let them all in, giving us the top 34 (due to site managers Ben Read and Nick Farr dropping out of contention).
Once more, voters can only vote once per round, and it’s restricted by IP address. Voting ends on Friday, December 14th, at 11:59 PM EST, so get your fans to vote for you before then. To be refreshed on the nominations, these 34 posts are linked under the poll, so check them out.
And while you’re here, subscribe to our site, we’ve got a pretty sweet E-book coming out in the next few days.
Connect with us on Facebook or Twitter to follow along with the contest.
And we’d love for you to leave a comment and let us know who you are voting for, these bloggers would love to know who to thank as well!
