The deadline for submitting votes is January 7, 2017 at midnight GMT.

The ranking will be done by me with influence from votes and nominations. The quality and quantity of contributions to Innovation Excellence by an author will be a BIG contributing factor (through the end of the voting period), so there is still time for authors and bloggers to make their first (or your best) contribution to Innovation Excellence yet. To contribute to Innovation Excellence, simply:

  1. Join the community
  2. Go to http://www.innovationexcellence.com/components/com_wordpress/wp/wp-admin and log in with the same username and password you used to create your account

You can vote in any of these four ways (and each earns points for them, so please feel free to vote all three ways):

  1. Sending us the name of the blogger by @reply on twitter to @ixchat
  2. Adding the name of the blogger as a comment to this article’s posting on Facebook
  3. Adding the name of the blogger as a comment to this article’s posting in our Linkedin Group (38,000+ members)

The official Top 40 Innovation Bloggers of 2016 and the contest winners will then be announced on Innovation Excellence in early January 2017.
