Nominations - September's "Best Dramatic Post and Blogsite"

It's time again, time to nominate your favorite posts and sites for September's awards. We hope to have new medals out (and return the Order of Australia medals to them with our gratitude for the loan!)

Rules on the nomination for Dramatic / Serious Posts and sites:

1. Posts must be written between September 1st and September 30th.
2. Nominations can be made up to 11:59:59 PM (EDT) on September 30th.
3. Nominations will be placed in the comments, and added to the body of the post on a daily basis. If you would like to nominate in secrecy, then make and post the comment, and then delete it. It will show up in my email box and I will add it to the nomination post.
4. "Serious" and "Dramatic" refer to the subject matter. Note: Due to some eye-opening posts from the August Awards, we will be adding a new category this month to cover political rants as they are a genre unto themselves and it is often difficult to tell if the writer is serious or satirical.
5. Blogsites must have at least one September posting in order to qualify. Any site not posted in September should be nominated in the Historic category.
6. Each nominator can list up to three post and three blogsite nominations per category. You cannot nominate your own post or blogsite (but you can vote for yourself.)
7. Active links (or at least URLs) would be appreciated!!!
8. The Moderator wishes to remain impartial, and thus, cannot be nominated. (But thank you if you thought of me!)

Thanks to everyone who kicked this off last month. Let's hope September is even more fun!

Good luck, everyone!!!

Thank you, ltlme and Sherry, for the nominations! They will be posted momentarily.

Sherry, thank you also for the well-wishes for stepson. He's in the process of trying to move the office to Virginia. No idea how long it will be there, whether it's permanent or temporary. He's still not been back to his home to see if anything is left. But we're among the lucky...we still have him, and that's all that counts. Everything else could be replaced with time and expense. But him, he's a unique and special, once-in-a-lifetime event and we just thank the good Lord that he is well!

You're so kind.

You made the right choice with Mr Happy. I love reading his Blog. He tells us what it is really like in Iraq. I have freind there but they do not say much about it.

I read the rules about nominating, but how are winners chosen? Will these nominations be judges by a panel, or can people vote? How? If its by comments, must all voters have a blogger account?

 
At 9/13/2005 12:52 PM, Blogger Motherdear said...

Hello, Miss Cellania! Welcome!

The voting is done by everyone - no need to have a blogger account, just be a fan of blogging and want to support efforts which are, in your opinion, worthy of recognition. The voting starts on October 1st and continued to 11:59:59PM EST on October 5th. You vote right in the comments and can vote up to three times in each category. Your 3 votes cannot be for the same site or post, however. And you do not have to vote in every category or use every vote that is your. If you wish to vote with a secret ballot, just make the comment, then delete it. It goes right to my email program so I will put your vote on the tally sheet as soon as I receive it.

Please feel free to nominate up to three posts or sites in each category, and again, thank you for finding us!!! We look forward to having you with us!!!

My vote goes for the incredibly talented and actually quite hot Ms Naked Ovary.

 
At 10/05/2005 1:34 PM, Blogger cubbiegirl said...

Naked Ovary gets my vote.

 
At 10/05/2005 2:13 PM, Blogger Motherdear said...

Jennifer, you did fine, hon. I'm assuming that everyone who is voting for The Naked Ovary intends to vote in both categories, since you each get up to three votes, but cannot use all three votes on the same post or site (but you can split it up if you have someone with multiple nominations in the same category and vote for their post, and their site.) So yes, dear, you did just fine.

 
At 10/05/2005 2:46 PM, Blogger Karen said...

Yay! Yay!

I am actually quite honored to be amongst these other bloggers. It's way cool.

Karen/ Naked ovary
