I am SUPER EXCITED right now! The finalists for the 2015 Bloggies were just announced, and A Mothership Down is a finalist in the Best New Blog of the Year category!!!!
If you recall, this is “The Oscars of the Internet” (my words). I’ve had my eyes on this competition all year, and my goal was to make it as a finalist in this category. I guess you could say all of my dreams have just come true. Except for the dream where I get to meet Fred Savage and Alyssa Milano as an extra on a coming of age tv show featuring child actors who never needed braces. Anyway.
I am going to shamelessly beg you now to PLEASE vote for A Mothership Down! PLEASE! (Brian suggested I add this second “Please” to really drive home my desperation).
So, stop what you’re doing right now. CLICK ON THIS LINK and vote! I mean, yeah, “it’s an honor just to be nominated” and all that, but why not go for a win?!
The Best New Weblog category is 3rd from the bottom. You need to scroll way down on the page. It takes only a minute to vote. (Other great blogs in the finals are my friend Elizabeth’s Bowl of Delicious, in the “Best Food Blog” category, and Jill Smokler’s Scary Mommy in the “Parenting” & “Best Group or Community” categories).
Thank you to everyone who has supported the blog in its first year! It’s surprisingly hard getting a new blog off the ground, but we are doing it! And doing it in style, if you are judging by Nolan in his tuxedo suit. Which you should be because damn that boy looks good.
Ok, let’s get out the vote! No time to become a politician like the present, that’s what I like to say.
