This was a particularly difficult month to select winners for our "Best Post on ChicagoNow" contest, there were more submissions than usual and so many of them were excellent. To go back and read the last 2 1/2 years worth of winners go here and here.
Here are the rules:
- Bloggers may submit up to two posts: One of their own posts / One from any other ChicagoNow blog.
- The post must have been published during the month of October.
- We look at the quality of content, quality of writing, overall creativity, quality of headline and presentation.
- We don't consider how much traffic a post has received, reader comments, responses to reader comments or the number of Facebook "likes" or times a post is sent out on Twitter.
