In the past few weeks, I had the honor to host this amazing travel blogging competition where we had to select the best travel blog of the year among the blogs that submitted for this contest.
It wasn’t an easy task for sure. We had to review a total of 369 submissions and after a very long screening, we selected 45 candidates that went through a detailed analysis in order to establish which of them will compete for the ‘Travel Blog of The Year 2020’ Award and other five different categories.
All blogs were evaluated based on design, general content, creativity, website performance, social media, privacy policies and various blogging elements. Special thanks to Website Grader and Woorank for proving a complete evaluation of all 45 candidates. Based on these two evaluators, we managed to pick the best ‘tech-evaluated’ travel blogs.
Evaluation scored where then combined with the public votes. People had almost two weeks to vote for each category and every single vote was added to the initial screening points. The travel blogs that gathered the most points won the competition and now it’s finally time to reveal who are the winners!
