Aubrey at the Fam Five is amazing. I think she definitely deserves this mommy blog of the year. Not only is her blog just stinking cute (as are her kids!), but she leaves comments that make that person feel very special, like you know her without ever having really met her.

Cindy said...

Michaela said...

Oh how fun!! I'll have to put some thought into this! In the meantime, I have something for you =)

Infant Bibliophile said...

I'll probably be the first of many to nominate Allie at No Time for Flashcards. Her site is an amazing resource for craft, book, song, and other learning activity ideas for parents. Her love of children (and of course her own son) really shine through on her extraordinary blog. She's also wonderful about supporting other bloggers through her Sunday Spotlight feature. I don't know how she finds the time, but I'm glad she does.

Matt, Katie, and Sophia! said...

I'm going to nominate a friend of mine. She has a great website full of creative ideas for moms.

what a great contest. I would like to nominate Kathy B from The world according to me. (http://sixbelinskis.blogspot.com/)
She inspires me to be a better writer and look at the world a different way. She always says to try and find the funny in things and then life won't seem to difficult. And this is SO true.

As a writer, I look for blogs that inspire me to be a better mother, better wife, and better writer. Joyce Wolfley's blog has it all. She is an inspiration in so many ways.

Hello! I'm delighted to nominate Liv Lane, “One Year of Beauty” blogger as the Mommy Blogger of the Year! Liv is amazing at finding beauty in each moment, every day, and she shares the beauty with all of us through moving photos and inspiring words. Sometimes those photos and words will stop you dead in your tracks and catapult you into the realization that yes, beauty IS all around us...if you choose to see it. Through her blog, Liv inspires me to think bigger and live from a much more conscious perspective. Check it out at http://oneyearofbeauty.blogspot.com/! :)

If you want to be inspired by this AWESOME Mommy's writing- That would have to be The Redhead Riter.
She is mysterious (no one still knows what she looks like)she is a FANTASTIC mom to her wonderful beautiful daughter, and by can she inspire you with her words. She updates her blog daily with something new for all to ponder. Sometimes you may even catch one of her delicious recipies!!

Heather
8 Women Dream

terrydoesloans said...

I agree with 8 Women Dream and I think www.aweekinthelifeofaredhead.com is the the best mother blog out there and I am not much for women blogs (sorry prefer sports), but this one makes me laugh every time.

Jenny said...

How fun. I just read all of the comments and haven't heard of most of these blogs. I'll have to check them out.

I'd like to nominate:

I'm Living Proof that God Has A Sense of Humor. Helene is so fun and witty! I enjoy reading her blog, because it is never depressing.

http://2setsoftwins-helene.blogspot.com/

MrM said...

I'm not a blogger or a blog expert, and know I'm going to look biased, but I'm going to nominate my wife anyway. She won't nominate herself even though she totally deserves it and I think it would be awesome for her to get Mommy Blog of the Year.

She pours her heart and soul into her blog, and loves her readers like they're best friends. I get to hear all about them! Plus, her writing is amazing. I mean, I live here and experience everything first hand and I still think her blog is entertaining enough to read all the time. I am so proud of her writing!

Not only is she a great blogger, but she does it all while managing to be a great mom to our three kids under 5. Just by definition, Expert Mommy+Awesome Blogger=My Wife. I really hope you will consider her for this award. Thanks.

Teresha and Damon said...

What a cool blog! Happy bloggy-versary! I have two nominees whose blogs I have come to admire:

The Redhead Riter:
http://theredheadriter.blogspot.com
She writes with an emotional intelligence that I hope to have one day. She deserves this award for displaying a love for her daughter that oozes throughout her blog, for being such a warm and caring spirit, for always knowing what to say and when to say it and doing so with pizazz.

TOOJ @ Circling the Table Squared:
http://circlethesquaretable.blogspot.com/
She writes with an honesty that is disarming. She deserves this award for being a fierce mama to some truly adorable boys, being open with her thoughts and feelings, and for stopping cynics in their tracks while building bridges at the same time.

angie said...

Aubrey at Family 5 is great!

Suzanne said...

I would like to nominate the redhead riter. She cracks me up...and we all need that once in awhile!

natalee said...
