ChicagoNow’s best posts of June, 2014

Summer has finally arrived, and the month of June is a memory until next year. With that said, it’s time to announce our best blog posts for the month.

After letting the bloggers submit which posts they have deemed worthy, we have narrowed down the submissions to the top 10, with special acknowledgement for the top 5 being split into 1st place (1 winner), 2nd place (1 winner), and 3rd place (3 winners).

Thank you to all that created a post this month, and congratulations to the winners!

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.
