2017 Webby Awards

life after 50, over 50, retirement, baby boomer women, baby boomers

I’m super thrilled to announce that A Baby Boomer Woman’s Life After 50 was recognized with a 2017 Webby Award Honoree in the Personal Blogs category. This is my second time being honored by the Webby Awards, the first time was in 2013 when I had just retired from my full time corporate career to pursue my blogging.


2017 Webby Awards

What does it mean to be a Webby Honoree?

2017 Webby Award Honoree; 2017 Webby Awards

The annual Webby Awards are like the Oscars for the best of the web. The five top entries in each category become nominees and the public can vote online for one winner in each category. Nevertheless, I am still honored to be an Honoree. Here’s what my congratulatory note said:

“In recognition of the exceptional quality of submissions received this year, the Academy has acknowledged outstanding entries as Official Honorees, alongside our Nominees. With 13,000 entries received from all 50 states and over 70 countries this year, the 21st Annual Webby Awards has been our most competitive season yet.

As an Honoree in the 21st Annual Webby Awards, your work ranks in the top 17% of all work entered from around the world, as judged by the Academy. While your work is not nominated this year, earning the distinction of Honoree in such a competitive season is a remarkable achievement worth celebrating.”
