Nominate (Me)

Surprises are mostly good. Like when you're walking into a dim and dreary place, but find a corner lit by the face of a dear friend. When, while doing laundry, you find forgotten money in the pocket of your husband's jeans. (Yes. Yes, I spent it.) Or when someone nominates your blog for the 2010 Author Blog Awards. I got the e-mail Monday!


Me? Something She Wrote? How neat is that surprise?

Here are the deets: A blogger (me) first needs lots and lots of nominations to make the shortlist, which will be announced April 5th. (Nominations are open until April 2nd. Just two more days!) Then, from those who make it to the next round, overall winners will be chosen by vote.
`
`
But, bonus! You yourself could win from lots and lots of prizes just by visiting the site and nominating someone (me).
`
Look at this face. *weilds big brown eyes* (nominate me)
`
Help a girl out?
`
ETA: Many are saying it's not the easiest nomination method. I understand if it's something you don't have time for, or just plain don't want to do. Your ongoing support and encouragement are plenty enough!
`
Sincerest thanks to whomever nominated me initially. It was a great pick-me-up.
Disclaimer: Subliminal messages should be taken uber seriously. Yep.
