Here we go!!!

Hello, everyone!

Taking all suggestions for nominations for August. I will be working on this site, trying to make it visually appealing and workable, with help from Pete. Anyone with constructive comments and suggestions, please feel free, I'm all ears!

I love the look of this! I wish I could do html because some sort of mascot should be placed on this. I'll see if another blogger might have some ideas.

I'm glad you like it, ltlfriend. I have been talking to Pete (he does this stuff for a living - like you, I cannot do this sort of thing). He said there is a way that we can take an image and put it in, because I want to have one to place in comments of posts / blogs that are nominated, and one for a winner. I was thinking of something like a lightbulb for the award (you know, "Brilliants") with maybe a ribbon, like it was something that we conferred from the Order of Brilliant Bloggers. What do you think of that???

I think it's great - as is the site and well done for taking this on.

Now we can nominate your blog, too? because the one w/the dog and the teeth still has me laughing.

Looking good motherdear :)

Will be online on and off all weekend so feel to email me about anything that I can help with. I've mucked about a little with polls but since they aren't hosted by blogger, there are some issues with it. Will give it some thought and let you know what I think. By the way, I don't actually do this stuff for a living - almost the first HTML that I ever fired in anger was in my blogger template a couple of months ago - but I am very interested in how it all works and I do have an IT background so that helps a little :)

You have no idea how big this thing is going to get! Great idea and am still very excited about it :)

Thank you, Penny, and Pete!

Pete, I'm sorry I made an assumption about your livelihood...I guess the 'deliverables' you spoke about and the program you described rebuilding from scratch had me confused. ooops, oops, ooopsie!!!

I'm glad we're on the right track, though. I think we can always just put the nominations into the comments, and then vote from the posts.

Here's a question - should we vote anonymously???

I'd like to make it easy for people to read the posts / access the blogsites from the nomination post. I'm not sure how to put links in, though. Maybe Kal can help me with that (I just got the hang of links in the sidebar!)

Again, dear ones, thank you so much for all your help!!!
