Laura over at Harrassed Mom has got tired of this sitting around crap and waiting for someone to kick start a 2012 Mommy Blog Awards, she stood up and created her own. Er, can you say ROCK STAR!? Like a freakn SUPER STAR ….
Cripes, when I grow up I want to be like Harrassed Mom. But between now and then I will just fall down in her shadow and wonder how the hell she does it, because right now I could not organised a box of doughnuts without getting myself worked up into a lather.
How it will work (RM > cut and pasted from Harrassed Mom):-
- You, as the reader, nominate a Mom Blogger by sending me an email on why you feel she deserves to win. I don’t really want an essay – just a few lines on why you enjoy her blog, what makes her special to you etc.
- We will then narrow it down to 5 finalists – our decision will not be based on who got the most nominations but rather what was said about them (RM > do you NOT ADORE THAT IDEA??)
- Once we have 5 finalists we will then put it to a vote and a winner will be chosen.
- We will take nominations until the 10 August.
- The finalists will be announced on the 13 August when voting opens and it will stay open until Friday the 17th August.
- There will be a winner plus 2 “runners up”
There are some amazing ladies on board who have donated prizes.
The winner will receive,
- A beautiful piece of jewellery from Jan’s Chains and Things
- A rabbit side plate from Cath Price Ceramics
- A R200 voucher from the Neat Freak
- A mini studio or outdoor lifestyle shoot from Heart and Soul Photography
- A semi-custom theme from Snapping Turtle
- A hand salt scrub and a hand mousse from Tranquil Body Treats
The 2 runners up will each receive
- A hand wash and linen room spray from Tranquil Body Treats
- A beautifully designed piece of jewellery from Jan’s Chains and Things
- A pair of hanging ear rings from Swagger
- A notebook from Roxies and Monies
Pretty awesome don’t you think? (RM >Yike a doodle, I do so think!)
