Active Social Work has created an award for the best social work blogs in a variety of categories, as described below:
The contest actually started at the beginning of the year, but, since nominations are requestd until September 1, 2010, I thought that was a bit too long for my attention span. Voting on the nominees will be between September 1-December 31, 2010, with the results announced on the 1st of January 2011.
I found a few new ones through the site, too, because people are leaving their votes in the comments on this permanent page. I especially enjoy finding ways to connect with social workers in direct practice about the ways in which social policy impacts their practice and their clients and, since I interact online mostly with non-social workers, it’s good to find a community of folks with pretty similar values and approaches.
Social workers, check it out. You might find some new blogs to follow.
And, of course, if you can think of any really fabulous social work policy blogs to nominate (ahem…), well, you can do that, too! Happy voting!
