Did you know I have never been a finalist in the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards? I am shocked too, and I hope things are different this year!
There are 12 categories, and I hope you will consider nominating me for the following:
Best Cat Blog
Best Humor Blog
Best Blog Post
Best Pet Blog Photo
To nominate me for these categories, you will need the following information:
Blog’s Homepage (link): https://www.sparklecat.com
Contact Name for Blog Owner: Sparkle Cat
Contact email for Blog Owner: sparkle AT sparklecat DOT com (of course, with the @ and . instead of the words)
Facebook Page of nominee: https://www.facebook.com/sparklecatfans
Twitter account of nominee: https://twitter.com/sparklecat
For Best Cat Blog, you just need the info above.
For Best Humor Blog, they want a “Direct Link to a Blog Post that best exemplifies this author’s style, creativity, and humor so that our judges don’t have to go searching!” So here are some you can use:
â€¢ What If There was Perfume for Cats? (https://www.sparklecat.com/special/what-if-there-was-perfume-for-cats)

â€¢ Anar-Kitty in the USA (https://www.sparklecat.com/diary/anar-kitty-in-the-usa)
I have lots of Blog Posts to choose from for Best Blog Post (you of course have to supply a link to the post). Here are my own favorites:

For Best Pet Blog Photo, you have to supply a link to the photograph. I have so many photos, it was hard to find the ones I thought were really good. Here are the ones you could nominate:
From Wordless Wednesday: (Mostly) Black and White (https://www.sparklecat.com/diary/wordless-wednesday-mostly-black-and-white)
From Caturday Art: The By-Hand Edition (https://www.sparklecat.com/diary/caturday-art-the-by-hand-edition)

Don’t worry about playing favorites — you can nominate the other kitties who have great blogs too! Nominations are open until February 12, 2014.
The Best part of the BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Awards is that I only need to nag you about nominating me once! After that, they pick the finalists from the nominations themselves. I don’t have to stump for votes and I can go back to blogging as usual!
Thanks for the nominations, and I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my best blog posts of the past year again!

We are totally going to nominate you! We have to get to our own nag here soon – we think we’ll make our human put it up on Thursday. *sigh* We do hate to nag, as well. We completely agree on that one! And we’re so very glad we don’t have to “stump” for this award like we would others!
Baby Tali says
OK Sparkle..we will help out.. 😀
Kitties Blue says
Our mommy has a few blogs she wants to nominate, and Sparkle you are on that list. She has decided to ask to be nominated this year and will be asking in our Thursday post. She is up to her neck in ball gowns and tuxes after getting dates for all of us to the Valentine’s Dance. She’s not sure she’ll ever have that under control. Good luck with the awards.
