THE BLOGSCARS: Here are the nominees...

And the nominations are in!! The Blogger Guild of Blogization (ie Yours Truly) has compiled a list of this year’s Blogscar nominees. So what are the Blogscars?? Well, it’s like the Oscars, but better, cause you probably know the blogtresses  and love them too! And here’s the kicker! You get to vote for your favorites!! Weee!!! And in the end the winners get the satisfaction of being voted by the world's finest blog readers. (Sorry, can't afford real trophies)

Pretty fun stuff I dare say! I actually wanted to do this last year, but I had about 12 followers at the time and read about 10 blogs, so the nominations were going to be a little skewed… And I didn’t think anyone would actually take me seriously…Haha! Anyway! The winners will be announced next month, so there’s PLENTY of time to get your readers to cast their votes! I’m pretty excited!

The nominees (All blogs w/1,100 followers or less) were carefully selected based on content and awesomeness.

Best Blogture
