The 2013 Glowgie Awards

So here's the thing. I had this whole tongue-in-cheek yet elaborate blog competition worked out. There would be no prize, it would all be for shits and giggles. 

I had a nomination form. I had a voting form. I even had a badly photoshopped picture to act as my Glowgie. Because if I can put Glow in to any word, you bet your ass I will. It's a compulsion and almost as bad McEverything.

Then two weeks ago my hard drive died and took it all with it. I back up nightly so it was the only thing lost, so as far as catastrophic hard drive events go, it was nothing. But still, I'd done all this work and on thinking of redoing it all, well, a serious case of CBFitis took over. I know, I'm so professional.

Now instead of having my Glowgies as a two week competition, I'm turning it in to a this weekend only shindig to coincide with the actual Logies.

I've even re-made a picture, though this time in 2 minutes instead of the elaborate hour job I did last time. Whatevs, sometimes you just gotta roll with the punches.

You can nominate your favourite blogs/bloggers in seven categories and the "winner" will be the blog/blogger in each field with highest number of that might be one nomination only, and it might be me because I'm the only one who bothers to do it and of course I'm going to vote for myself because nobody else will.

The seven categories are:

The Noni Hazelhurst Glowgie - for the blog/blogger that makes gardening and crafty stuff look easy and fun, who never ever kills their plants off or burns their fingerprints off

The Martha Stewart Glowgie - for the blog/blogger who rocks housekeeping/organization or home cooking (thus making us mere mortals realize how far we have to go)

The Brangelina Glowgie - for the blog/blogger who makes having multiples/lots of children look dead easy and makes you think about maybe having more kids

The Bono Glowgie - for the blog/blogger who is making a difference in the world (thus making me look like a black hearted mercenary)

The Dawn French Glowgie - for the blog/blogger who is keeping Tena Lady in business because they make all their readers piss themselves laughing 

The Michelle Bridges Glowgie - for the blog/blogger that inspires you to get up off your arse and exercise/cook healthy food

The Collette Dinnigan Glowgie - for the blog/blogger with so much style that it oozes out their pores (and can make even tracky dacks look alluring)

You can vote three ways:
  1. Leave a comment below "I nominate {blog name & URL} for the xyz Glowgie"
  2. Post on my Facebook page  "I nominate {tag the blog} for the xyz Glowgie from {tag Where's My Glow}"
  3. Tweet "I nominate @______ for the xyz #Glowgie from @Glowless"
You can nominate as many times as you like and nominate as many blogs as you want (including your own!). Anyone who nominates correctly will go in to the draw to win a $50 Coles/Myer giftcard.

What does the "winner" get? Absolutely nothing but some lovin' and maybe some new readers after seeing you pimp them out. The nominees will all be listed here and we can fawn over them, throwing roses petals and feeding them grapes. Or not. Because this doesn't mean anything. AT ALL. Shit and giggles, people, embrace it!

Well, what are you waiting for? Get voting in the blog competition that means nothing!
