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 February.
– 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.
