Part of our mission here at Housing Wire is to bridge the gaps that exist between traditional and emerging media. With that in mind, we've decided to sponsor an annual awards series highlighting the best in real estate blogging. We're calling our awards the REBAs -- Real Estate Blogging Awards, and we're asking HW readers to give us their votes in 7 different categories. Click here to read more about the REBAs. Voting is active today through 10pm CST on January 10, 2007. For the winners, we're putting $175 in prize money on the line. We'd have loved to put up more, but we are a free news blog, after all.
REBA categories and nominees were announced today, and can be found here. We'll be sending emails to each site owner announcing their nomination as we get the chance -- but you can help by publicizing our annual awards on your blog and encouraging your readers to vote. If your blog was nominated, best of luck from those of us at Housing Wire!
