Each month, ChicagoNow holds a contest to select the best blog posts throughout ChicagoNow. Out of roughly 1,500 posts published during the month of November, here are the 10 judged to be the best.
Thanks to everybody who created and submitted posts, and congratulations to the winners!
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 November.
– 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.
