Its Nomination Time!~ NOMINATIONS OVER!

filed under: Miscellaneous on April 30, 2010

Are you ready?  Its here!!  I am so excited.

It is time to nominate someone for the Awesomest Blog Awards!!

Nominations begin now! 

Here are the rules:

Nominations will remain open for 24 hours, so  that means they will close on Friday at 11:59pm.

Each person can nominate one blog.  You can nominate your blog or someone else's, but please only nominate one.  (yes, you can nominate anonymously!)  I know this is a bit different from last time, so I'll explain a bit more.

There are five category's for blogs to be nominated in. 

Awesomest Parenting Blog

Awesomest Inspirational Blog

Awesomest Food Blog

Awesomest Photography Blog

Awesomest Overall Blog

I am going to allow TWENTY nominations in each category.  That is a possible total of one hundred blogs.  Since I have to go to each blog and verify that they meet the requirements*, I need to keep the number small. If we dont reach twenty nominations in each category, then your chances just got better!

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

I am going to put up a separate post for each category.  Just find the post with your category and leave a comment there.

On Monday* I will be posting the twenty blogs that made it (the first twenty nominated or the total blogs nominated if less then twenty) and the voting will begin.  This is where you call mom, email your best friend, tell your readers, write grandma a letter… basically get everyone you know to vote for you.

*Not set in stone, I am going to try to get to every blog this weekend!

Voting will be open for ONE WEEK.  This way you have some time to round up votes. 

You will be able to vote once in each category.

Anyone can vote.  Everyone is encouraged too!  This is about giving back to the people that have given so much to us.  We all know how difficult it can be to maintain a blog, much less make it interesting and funny and inspirational all the time!  So nominate yourself… nominate your mom… your best friend.  Anyone that deserves a little prize!

Speaking of prizes.

Each category has a $50 cash prize.

The five category winners are going to win $50!!

You will also win one of these fantastic buttons made by the fabulous Londa.  She is gifted that girl.  As soon as she gets tired of her blog design I am going to steal it for my baking blog.


Also, every single blog nominated will be entered in a drawing for a super fun prize!  It might be cash.  It might be cookies.  It might be your choice.  You'll have to wait and see!

If you have any questions, please leave a comment on this post. 

Otherwise, head off to find your category and make your nomination! 

*Oh!  And THANK YOU in advance for asking, but no, you can NOT nominate me.  But shucks if I couldnt just give ya a big ole kiss for askin!

    Don’t know that I’ll get around to nominating anyone today… It’s “theater week” around here – my daughter is in the production Annie and I’m doing all the photography (or pretending to. LOL)… but.. I’ll have fun reading and voting.
    Blessings to you, Kari
