I just found out I was nominated to the Circle of Moms Top 25 Moms with Blended Families - 2012 list.
I received the email a little bit ago and sort of stopped in my tracks. Me? A top 25er? WOO HOOO!!!! Spank my ass and call me excited! (that came out bad, didn't it?)
I don't care. I'm excited about the nomination. Apparently to make the final top 25 list, I need people to vote for me.
According to Circle of Moms, Top 25 program honors bloggers who write about topics of interest to moms. Their mission is 'to connect our six million moms to the resources they need most, and those resources include exceptional mom blogs!' That there is a category for blended families makes me puddle with excitement. It's almost as if I'm gaining access to the 'rmom' club and it feels SO cool.
If you, too, want to see The Erin Experiment listed in the top 25, please click that Circle of Moms button up above and vote!
A few FAQs before you click over:
How do I vote for my favorite blog?Vote by clicking the orange "thumbs up" button next to the name of a blog.
Do you need to be a member of Circle of Moms to vote?No.
How often can I vote?You can vote once per blog every 24 hours. So for example, if you voted today at 10am, you wouldn't be able to vote again until tomorrow at 10am.
In order to protect against ballot stuffing, we limit the frequency of votes from a single network. So if you're connected to a network that shares an IP address (like in an office), you may be prevented from voting if another person in your network has already voted. No voting system is perfect, unfortunately, but this is one of many precautions we've taken to prevent cheating and protect the integrity of the competition.
I'll keep you posted on the outcome!
Now pardon me but I need go to find and dust off my tiara :-P
