There’s no “pretty good” category

Category Woohoo!

The very pretty Jackie nominated me for a whole slew of these Bloggers Choice awards, and I don’t really know what they are or if I should care, but here’s a handy link to go vote if you are so compelled. (I’m only linking the parenting category because, um, I’m lazy.)

I have a problem with trying to label things as “best” because my world is populated by endless shades of grey and I have a natural aversion to such absolutes, but in the absence of contests with easier-to-determine measures, I guess I’ll have to take what I can get.

There’s no “Most brutally honest about how much therapy her children require” category. Or “Most likely to blog about boob pus” category. Or even “Most verbose about things of no consequence at all” category. So this was the best I could do. (Get it? Best? Hello?)

    That sucks. You’d be a suse winner in the “boob pus” category.

  2. Heather

    I like the “verbose about nothing” category, but it’s kinda what makes your writing so cool. I really do think the best parenting blog nod is well deserved though…you write so well about your children and it’s all touching and inspiring and hilarious :-)

    Grey areas or no, you are aces in my book and you know it!

    I may be tempted to create a new category and nominate you as the Prettiest Mom Who Addresses All Things Unspeakable. How about that?

    Rats. They won’t let us vote more than once. I voted early, but not often.

  5. Jackie

    Mir, the categories are slim with choices. So, I chose everything possible. If I could vote everyday I would. They allow one vote per email. I KNOW everyone who reads your writing will vote for you!! Even if you don’t win, YOU are still a winner in my books and in my favorites! ;)

    AND I have to say when I looked to see where you were on this list…you are in second place in the Best Parenting Blog category!

    Have a wonderful Sunday.

  6. Rachel May

    Voted for you everywhere I could find you!

  7. Girl con Queso

    Um hello. You’re also up for the hottest mommy blogger award. And dontcha REALLY want to win that?! I’m so voting.

  8. Sophie

    Do you know what amazes me about your blog, other than your fantastic writing skill? It’s the way you can make your readers care about you. Is that a corny thing to say? Your readers love you! How do you do that? Also, you are honest, funny, and a lot more open than I can bring myself to be in a public forum. I’m going to vote now…

  9. Ashley K. Edwards

    Congratulations on your blog noms! I hope you can make it to PostieCon to find out who wins!

    Congratulations. I’ve heard of you for a long time but this is my first time here.

    Somehow I got there too. Go figure.

  11. karrie

    Oh Ann, you totally belong there!

    These awards would be even more fun if write-in categories were allowed. :)

    Good luck!

    I’m so terribly sorry; i totally WOULD HAVE voted for you, but saw Chris and had to vote for her. I’m sure you’d understand.
