An honoured bridesmaid maybe?

Well I was very honoured to be nominated today for two of the prestigious and coveted Okie Blog Awards.

These awards are the highlight of the Okieland blogging community year and have been going strong since 2005. The organiser does a wonderful and very tough job counting all the nominations and then the votes. This year Jenx67 took over this daunting task and is to be thanked for all her hard work.

I am nominated for two:

Best Representation of Oklahoma
Best Rural Blog

After looking around my site, I do think my blog accurately reflects these nominations, although I had never thought of it categorised in this way before. I have some stiff competition, including that blogging world super power known as Pioneer Woman in both. Hence the reason I expect to be a bridesmaid!

But if you're an Okie blogger yourself and are feeling generous, I would greatly appreciate your vote for my blog far far out here in the wilds of NW Okieland.

Voting closes at midnight on Valentines Day, good luck to all the worthy nominees.

Thank you ladies, sadly Gigi no only Okie bloggers can vote. But then again if anyone could, the PW would walk away with every award!

Doesn't surprise me in the least that you are nominated twice! I'm sure you will walk away a winner...you already are one as far as I'm concerned!

Of course I'll go vote for you. Would you vote for me too? I wish they were open to all Oklahomans to vote, because I really don't know that many Okie bloggers. Do you? I think I'm under single topic.~~Dee

Congratulations. You deserve the recognition. I discovered you in last year's Okie Blog Awards and I'm glad I did.

By the way, thanks for commenting on my cat photo a while back. I posted photos of my other two cats today.
