Blog, Blog, Bloggies

Oh, imaginary friends. How I hate writing this blog post. But my narcissistic tendencies win out over my hesitations and so, here I am. Asking you once again to vote for me in the Bloggie Awards.


If you’re unfamiliar with the blogging world, the Bloggies are like the Oscars of the blogosphere. Kind of like the red carpet for nerds. Only we don’t have to get out of our jammies because we don’t have to leave our houses. Cause we’re nerds.

Last year you guys totally went above and beyond and I ended up being one of 5 nominees for Blog of the Year, along with my BFF, The Pioneer Woman. I don’t think Chris or I stopped squealing for weeks. We didn’t win (the downside of being nominated with The Huffington Post and The Pioneer Woman…), but it was still such an honor for us! And so I’m hoping maybe you’ll do it again this year.

Pretty please?

The way the voting works for The Bloggies this year is that you go vote until January 16 and nominate blogs for awards. Then, a selected committee will review the nominees and choose the top five blogs in each category. After that, the voting opens up once again for everyone and you vote on your favorite finalist in each category.

I know, I know. It’s a long process and it’s asking a lot, but let’s do it in baby steps. For now, if you’re so inclined, you can just pop over to The Bloggies website and nominate me for whatever categories you think are appropriate. If I’m selected later as a finalist, I’ll post another desperate blog post asking you to go vote again.

Because I have no pride, you see.

The catch for voting at this nomination stage is that you have to nominate at least three different blogs – in the same category or in three different categories, it’s up to you.  And don’t worry about having to fill in each category.  Just pick and choose which categories you want to vote for and list your chosen blogs there.  For those of you who may not read that many blogs, I thought I’d walk you through the categories and tell you who I’m voting for. I read some really fantastic blogs and I’m sure they’d love your support.

Here we go…

Best Canadian Blog: Archives of Our Lives

Best Photography of a Blog:  My BFF, The Pioneer Woman

Best Art, Craft, or Design Blog:  Mabel’s House

Best Parenting Blog:  Glamorous Life of a Housewife

Best Food Blog:  Bakerella

Most Humorous Blog:  The Bloggess

Best Topical Blog:  Southern Weddings Magazine

Best Writing of a Blog:  The Bloggess

Best Kept Secret Blog:  Our Front Door

Thanks so much for all you do to support me and my little corner of CyberLand.  If I win a Bloggie this year, I will thank each one of you personally in my acceptance speech.

Which I will be giving from my couch.

In my PJ’s.

Because I’m a nerd.


Today I am thankful for rainy days.
