We’re excited that NEPA BlogCon, the region’s only blogging and social media conference, is almost upon us, but we’re even more thrilled to announce that NEPA Scene is hosting the conference’s 2015 Blog of the Year Awards exclusively right here on!

There are 10 categories this year, with three nominees chosen by the public in each category:

  • Best Sports Blog
  • Best Beauty/Style Blog
  • Best Tech Blog
  • Best Music/Arts Blog
  • Best Life Blog
  • Best Food/Beverage Blog
  • Best Business Blog
  • Best Activity/Hobby Blog
  • Best News/Political Blog
  • Best Fitness/Health & Wellness Blog

Vote now below or at until Sept. 11. Thanks to our loyal readers, NEPA Scene is in the running for Best Music/Arts Blog, but please note that while we are hosting the survey here, the WordPress shortcode was provided to us by NEPA BlogCon, so we have no back-end access to the survey and cannot (and would not) manipulate the results in any way. We’ll be just as surprised as you when the winners are announced at the conference on Saturday, Sept. 12!

On mobile? Vote here!

NEPA BlogCon will be held at East Stroudsburg University (200 Prospect St., East Stroudsburg) in the Hoeffner Science & Technology Center. Registration will begin at 9 a.m., and the first session will start at 9:45 a.m. Sessions will run throughout the day until 4 p.m., with a 45-minute break for lunch.

The event is designed to bring together bloggers of all experience levels, as well as those interested in marketing, social media, creativity, leadership, and branding. It’s also an excellent event for marketers, small business owners, nonprofit organizations, and students.

NEPA BlogCon draws a wide range of local, regional, and international talent. This year’s conference will be keynoted by Ashley Ambirge, CEO of House of Moxie, Inc., a creative agency. Ambirge, a native of Susquehanna County, is a 2015 Webby Award Honoree for her business blog, The Middle Finger Project. She has been featured in Entrepreneur Magazine, the Huffington Post, and on numerous blogs and podcasts.

All proceeds will benefit Squirrel Girls Tech Camp, a technology and programming camp for girls in grades 4-6.
