Announcing the #BlogHer16 Voices of the Year Honorees, Brought to You By Merck for Mothers!

BlogHer Original Post

Today we unveil the #BlogHer16 Voices of the Year honorees. It’s our ninth year producing the Voices of the Year (affectionately known as #VOTY) but it never, NEVER gets old. This year the #BlogHer16 Community Keynote will be brought to you by Merck for Mothers and held on Friday, August 5, at 4 p.m. PT. Aisha Tyler will emcee: It's going to be amazing.

Every year it renews our motivation and inspiration, because every year you show us just how much talent and passion you have. As the social media landscape has expanded, we’ve seen that talent and passion put to good use in words, audio, video, images, and even social action. This year Merck for Mothers introduced a new category, MOMents, and is bringing you our biggest, best VOTY ever.

Every one of the pieces submitted was reviewed by at least two judges and up to six. Judges were recruited from SheKnows Media staff and former Voices of the Year recipients. We thank all our judges for their hard work!

We are so excited to honor these outstanding creators who have pushed us to think more, feel more, share more, laugh more, and do more.

Get ready to click your heart out, and join us in congratulating this year’s Voices of the Year!
