For All You* Little People!

I haven't shared much of my thoughts about "blog awards." I suppose I won't do it now either. Suffice to say that I find them odd.

That said, Jules (whom I do not find odd) at Everyday Mommy is hosting a new kind of blog award (which I also, oddly, do not find odd.) It's called the Hidden Treasure Blog Award. It seems like a decent way to bring more readers to blogs that don't already get hundreds of hits every day. (I've experienced this on occasion over here, but one required a cute child and an expensive trip to China, and the other required a link from one of those other well-read blogs. And getting her to link to me wasn't cheap either, thankyouverymuch.**)

Normally I don't nominate or vote in these kinds of things. But when I read about this, I realized that I read a few bloggers who have written some posts that might deserve some recognition. And I think, in this case, they might actually have a shot at being recognized! It seems like this might be a chance for the "little people" to get a pat on the back for good writing.

So, if you can think of a blogger who doesn't have a huge readership, but has a few well-written posts, you might consider nominating him or her and spread the bloggy-award love.

*And by "you" I mean "us." ;)

Did you have to send her a truckload of diet coke too? ;-)

Yes, and in addition to All The Cash and diet Coke that you sent, the fried chicken was pretty delicious, too.


And for the record, I think the Hidden Treasure awards are a very cool idea.

For the record for some reason I always thought of your blog as another "very well read" blog. But yes not as much as about three of them I frequent.

I too love Jules idea for this. What an awesome thing. Let's all get to reading archives...

Jules comes up with great ideas all the time but she's outdone herself this time. This one is great. I plan to do a little archive digging, too. Lots of great posts out there. They deserve some notice.
