Best of Blogs - Call to Action

Oh, how I covet this award. We are only in our fledgling year, but I can dream. Blogging is so new, the Best of Blogs Award is only in its second year and I am honored to know my bloggy friend Andrea who's blog Coloring Outside the Lines is one of 10 finalists in the Art category.

Categories include Best: Mommy Blog, Daddy Blog, Fertility/Adoption Blog, Blog Whore, Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender Blog, Music Blog, Educational Blog, Sports Blog, Humour Blog, Knitting/Craft Blog, Cooking/Recipe Blog, Book/Literary Blog, Photo/Art/Poetry Blog, Snarkiest Blog, Weight Loss/Fitness Blog, Podcast Blog, Inspirational Blog, Overall Blog, New Blog, and Sex Blog.

As a Purple Woman, I feel marginalized by the omission of the cheerfully childfree. (Maybe Best Blog Whore(s)...? LOL!) How does it make you feel?

I encourage Purple WomenTM to visit their website and post a comment suggesting a Cheerfully Childfree category. Let's unite in voice and be heard!

Can I yell "vote for me!" here? :) Thanks, Teri -- and I hope you get your category. If only my very many child-free friends were into blogging...

Of course you can! I think you deserve to win.

And, I know what you mean about resistance to the idea of the internet as a hobby. It's certainly not for everybody.

I think the real reasons are related to fear about privacy issues (you can be completely anonymous and still be a blogger) and folks wanting to limit their time in front of a computer (same as for TV).

I'm not sure what Purple Women(tm) are, but why should Mommmy-Blogs have all the fun. Definitely make up your own category next time.

Yellow Jacket, you don't know what a gift you just gave me. If people can't tell what a PW is without clicking around, then something is wrong. I think I fixed it today. Many thanks my bloggy friend!
