Is there a blog you love to read that doesn’t have a huge following? One that deserves recognition? Well,there is a new award, just for these undiscovered gems. Here’s the deal:
Announcing the First Annual Hidden Treasure Blog Awards . The idea is simple; to recognize blog authors of excellence, with deserving posts which may go unnoticed.
of us have our favorite blogs, the ones we read faithfully. They are
dear friends, like a comfortable pair of shoes, perfectly broken in.
But, we can also find ourselves in a rut, reading the same blogs week
after week, and overlooking those hidden gems which may require a
little more digging. But, as my mom taught me, anything worth having
is worth working for.
So, if you’re up for an adventure I invite you to join me in a treasure hunt.
Step 1: The Treasure Hunt
mission is to scour the mommy blogosphere for hidden treasure. Read
through archives, visit new blogs and find that well-written gem. This
can come from a favorite blog which you already read or a blog you’ve
discovered during the treasure hunt. But, the idea is to find
well-written posts which are off the beaten path.
The categories are: Children & Family, Faith, Marriage, Motherhood, Homemaking, Humor, Current Events and Life.
No profanity, questionable or offensive material is permitted. Keep a
list of the hidden treasures you find for submission in the next step.
Step 2: Nominations
will open on February 1, 2007. Everyone may nominate a single post in
each category. The three posts with the most nominations will advance
to voting. So, if you find a great post feel free to pass the word.
Nominations will close on February 7, 2007.
Step 3: Voting
will open on February 8, 2007. One vote per category. Voting will
close on February 13, 2007. Winners will be announced on February 14,
2007 The nominated post with the most votes overall will be awarded Best In Show.
I believe Jules at Everyday Mommy will be taking the nominations on her site. From now until February 1st, just bookmark your favorite posts so you can find them easily when nominations open. Now, I’m not saying you all need to nominate me or anything. But look! I just happened to add a list of my more memorable posts right there in my sidebar. How handy. Actually, nominate any post, mine or someone elses, that you feel is noteworthy.
