Awesomest Blogs Ever!

filed under: Miscellaneous on April 24, 2009

I have had it with the conventional bloggers choice awards.  They come no where near to representing the blogs that I think are brilliant, funny, soul searching, thoughtful, inspirational, budget friendly, and beautiful.  Sometimes they are just vulgar and gross!

I am coming up with my own blog awards.  I am going to name it something really unique and creative and fun so that whenever anyone reads it they will want to enter or nominate!  And the name is:

Awesome Blogs 2009

(I know.  I don't think I am going to win for Most Creative Blog.) 

Speaking of categories, here they are!

Awesomest Parenting Blog

Awesomest Inspirational Blog

Awesomest Food/Recipe Blog

Awesomest Funniest Blog

Awesomest Designed Blog

Awesomest Photography Blog

Awesomest Homeschooling Blog

Awesomest Faith Blog

Awesomest Political Blog

Awesomest Overall Blog

Heres the deal:

Nominate someone.  Nominate everyone.  You can nominate one blog for every category or 10 blogs per category.  You can nominate yourself.  You can nominate your mom.  You can nominate me.  Kidding.  You cannot nominate me.  I will personally visit each and every blog nominated.

Here is MY criteria for nominating.  The blog nominated cannot use profanity, cannot be classified as a gossip blog, cannot demean, cut down, or hurt others in any way.

And once all the nominations are in, YOU are going to pick the winners! 

You can nominate here:   OR just click here 


When the nomination period is over, I will put together a list of all nominated blogs for each category and you will get to choose who you think should win.

And thats not all!

Not only do we get to nominate blogs that WE write, that uplift and encourage, we get to win fabulous prizes too!

Each catergory winner will receive a $5 Gift Card from Target, Starbucks, or Walmart. 

As a category winner, they will be eligible for a drawing (that's a 1 in 10 chance) for a $50 gift card to Target, Starbucks, or Walmart.

They will also be featured on my blog for one week! 

I am also looking into the option of getting the winners featured on some big blogging sites…stay tuned for that!

They will also get a handy dandy button for their side bar that says:

AWESOMEST BLOG AWARD WINNER or something terribly creative like that. (Button still in the works)

You may also get more readers!  And more commenters!

Have questions?  See if I can answer them for you in my FAQ's section.

Can I nominate Pioneer Woman?  Sure

Can I nominate myself for every category? Sure

If I am the only one nominated for every category does that mean I win the prize for every category? Yup.

How many times can I nominate myself? Once a day.

How long is the nomination period? It ends at midnight on May 8th. 

Any other questions, just ask!
