About.com Reader's Choice Award SAD Winners for 2012

By April 8, 2012

Follow me on:

The About.com Reader's Choice Awards have come to a close and I am now announcing the winners in the social anxiety disorder category. Unfortunately, there were not even votes cast to determine a clear winner in the "Best SAD Self-Help Tool" category. While I am a little disappointed, this was the first year for the SAD categories and a chance to find out what readers are passionate about.

It turns out you are passionate about your SAD websites! Out of the five nominees, you choose Social Anxiety UK as the clear winner; this website received 50% of the votes cast. Second place went to Social Phobia World with 25% of the votes, and in third place was The Social Phobic with 12%.

My own site, About.com at SAD only brought in 3% of the votes but I am not taking it personally! I am just glad that readers came out to vote and support their favorite sites. I know that every site has something different to offer and perhaps caters to a different audience; hopefully my site fills a niche that the others do not.

Where do we go from here? I would love to get your feedback about whether I should run the awards again next year, and if so, what new categories I could introduce?
