We were so excited to see all the entries we received for our inaugural Bluehost Spotlight Awards. Our team had hundreds of entries to review that featured dynamic eCommerce, blogging, and small business websites from our customers nationwide. The Spotlight Awards is a program designed to celebrate the amazing WordPress websites designed by our customers.

Bluehost is pleased to announce Tedi Sarah as the Grand Prize winner of the 2019 Bluehost Spotlight Awards.

Why did you choose to start your blog/website?

Back in 2013 I had a chance encounter at the grocery store that led me to adopt a more plant-based/cruelty-free lifestyle. I was so inspired by everything I was learning about the benefits of a plant-based diet for our health, our planet, and the animals, that I wanted to share what I’d learned with anyone who was interested in listening!

From it’s original days as a plant-based food blog, has evolved into a true lifestyle blog. My blog is all about spreading good around the world and trying to live each day a little kinder, a little gentler, a little happier and a little healthier. Everything you’ll find on will be vegan, and in some way, shape or form, make this world a better place for people, animals and/or the planet.

The following were runners-up in the awards:

2nd Place: PrepAtl

How has Bluehost impacted your blog/business?

Uptime is very important to us, as PREP uses web services in house, as well as for our external presence. We use our blog as the base for all of our marketing and social media to point to. We have been with Bluehost for more than 5 worry free years.

3rd Place: Part-Time Tourists

Why did you choose Bluehost for your website?

Before starting my blog I did a lot of research. I mean, A LOT. And 95% of all the other blogs that I read all recommended Bluehost. I even chatted with a Bluehost representative before I signed up to ensure that it was going to be the correct host for my website. I was sold after that phone call and have been with Bluehost ever since. 

Entries were judged on overall creativity and originality; overall look, design, grammar, and professionalism; and the use of WordPress themes, plugins, and technology. The Grand Prize winner will receive a $1500 gift card, a sponsored trip to a WordCamp of their choice, and one year of Shared web hosting with Bluehost.
