Dear Wendy

Please Nominate Dear Wendy for the 2013 Weblog Awards

14A reader brought to my attention that it’s time to make nominations for the 2013 Weblog Awards and suggested I reach out to all of you and ask that you be kind enough to consider nominating Dear Wendy. So: will you consider nominating the site? Specifically, for: “Best Topical Weblog.” Winning — or even just becoming a finalist — will help bring a little exposure and traffic my way, and if I win the $20.13 award, you know I will buy each and every one of you an ice cream cone. Nominations close January 27th. Thank you!!

    A Cup of Jo and Elements of Style are my other go-to blogs. But I refresh Wendy’s hourly, or more, so she’s my fave!

    Also, check out the Everygirl. It’s pretty awesome.

    Corporette, and you can even include Post Secret. FYI the confirmation email came into my spam box so look for it (you have to click on the link for the nomination to go through). Their process is a little convoluted.

    My other blogs were The Pioneer Woman and Smitten Kitchen. The Pioneer Woman has already gotten a million awards from them, but I don’t really read any other blogs.

    Except now that I’m thinking about it, I think I typed in Smitten Kitten instead of Smitten Kitchen… I have my new kitty on the brain! haha

      Have you ever read Skinny Taste? I like to take Pioneer Woman recipes and try and decide what Skinny Taste would do to make them healthier, haha.

        No, I haven’t! Thanks for the recommendation. I’ll definitely check that out!

      • csp January 8, 2013, 12:58 pm

        I nominated Skinny Taste too!

    Done! And everybody, take note of this after you hit submit: “Now check your e-mail. There’s a URL in it that you need to visit for your ballot to be processed. It may take some time to arrive, but if you haven’t received it within a day, send me a message.” (I almost didn’t see it)

    As for suggestions for other categories, I nominated The Gloss for fashion & Crappy Pictures for parenting.
