This is an example of a nomination – I nominated Christina Huff of Bipolar Hot Mess for Best in Show: Blog.
“I love Christina’s honesty about life with bipolar disorder on Bipolar Hot Mess. As someone who has bipolar, I find her candor comforting in a world that makes it hard to be frank about mental illness. She also posts helpful videos to YouTube. Christi is a true friend to me and many people – she regularly interacts with her readers on social media”
