A nomination would look something like this

Sara (include link to blog if you have one) nominates Sprinkles for the Best Story of a D-Mistake (link to the specific post you are nominating on Sprinkles’ blog)

You do not need to have your own blog to nominate – anyone from anywhere can make a nomination!  Come back here or visit on May 1st to see the winners.  Easy, peasy.  I like this idea because it gives exposure to some great blogs out there.  And provides some great reading material for everyone.  So get to it.  Send in your nominations!  It’s always open so you have from now until midnight (EST) of April 29th to submit.  Thank you Sara and George for bringing this opportunity to nominate blogs in order to connect everyone’s circles together and allow people to expand their network of support and encouragement 🙂
