2 - 4 - 6 - 8, Spread the word and NOMINATE
I’m relatively new to this blogging thing. I mean to say that I’m new to this blogging lifestyle. I’ve always written-even before blogging was in fashion or even referred to as blogging by mainstream society. Diverted and Rediverted were my blogging babies. Then, blogging exploded all over the world, and everyone was doing it. I didn’t notice that blogging was such a phenomenon until we moved back to the U.S., and by then, blog communities, blog speak and technical wizardry became the norm. I was out of it before I was ever in it.
I’m slowly catching up, and now I’m officially a blogger. I’m still woefully behind on the technical stuff, and the blog could use an overhaul. I always hoped that the content would overshadow the under-stylized design. I’m envious of those who are able to play with format and gadgets and make their blogs sizzle. But it seems my material alone has actually managed to convince a select few that content is king because I’ve been nominated for....wait for it....
The LEZZY AWARDS are sponsored by the site The Lesbian Lifestyle. TLL is a blog comprised of over 250 lesbian authors who post their stories and tackle monthly topics. The Lezzys are a great way to highlight lesbian authored blogging. And what if I win? What do I get? I get the satisfaction of knowing that my little hobby here is not just blogsterbation, and I can tell Gabriella that I NEED time to write in order to share the love with my readers and that I just can’t give the boys a bath just now.
HOWEVER, one nomination is not enough to make it to the final round. From now until the 9th, TLL will be accepting nominations. Numbers count.
EVERYONE can nominate. You don’t have to be a lezzy or a gay homosexual. You don’t have to enjoy watching girl on girl porn. You don’t even have to like hummus. You just have to go to the TLL site each day, and nominate Peaches & Coconuts. You will not be outed as a gay or a gay-lover in your community, schools or places of worship, and no one will harass you to join the site or even become a gay homosexual-unless that’s what you want. For those of you who do play on my team, spend some time on the site, read articles, participate in conversations and perhaps even register to contribute entries.
I’m small potatoes compared to most blogs, so this is my appeal for help to get P&C on the ballot. If you enjoy the blog, take 5 seconds each day to click on The Lesbian Lifestyle widget/banner/button on the right hand side of the page and select the NOMINATE button on the TLL website. Or click HERE. You must confirm your nomination via a link that will be sent to your email address, so please check your mail.
You can nominate Peaches & Coconuts for one or more categories. I’m thinking Best Personal Blog and/or Best Parenting Blog though I wouldn’t stop you from adding P&C to more categories. And, if you know of other blogs that you want to identify as Lezzy-rrific, go for it! It’s all about promoting each other. Thank you.
