WWGOA is pleased to announce our first ever competition dedicated entirely to all those talented woodworkers out there who share their work with the blogosphere. We’re so impressed by the incredible woodworking we see every day in the online community, and we want to find out who is the best of the best. The WWGOA Blogger Awards is your chance to vote for your favorite!
A lot of things can determine a great woodworking blog. Maybe your favorite blog has great tutorials on complicated woodworking techniques, or helpful tricks and hacks for the shop. Or maybe your favorite always features great photos and ideas that inspire you to try new things. Or maybe your favorite always has a new piece of woodworking humor to keep us laughing. All are welcome in the WWGOA Blogger Awards!
