Is is strange that I’ve come to think of the word “whore” as a term of endearment? I blame my online friends. What started out as “attention whoring” on The Nest has turned into a veritable anthem for us–something along the lines of “We’re attention whores and proud of it!” Over time we’ve dropped the “attention” and now lovingly refer to each other as just “whores.” Which we sometimes shorten to “ho,” but only when we’re drunk and typing is a challenge. And I like to throw an occasional “hooker” in there too–just to keep things interesting. Now I know what you’re thinking, and I’m thinking it, too:
I just lost Gloria Steinem as a reader.
It’s unfortunate, but it happens. Back to whoring myself out–my fabulous friend TBWB over at Unskinny Boppy has nominated both my blog and my friend Janny’s blog for Divine Caroline’s Love! This Site Awards!
To vote for my blog for the Style Award, please click here: Vote for G&D!
To vote for my amazingly gifted and crafty friend Janny for the Home & Food Award, please click here: Vote for JannyPie!
The good news is Janny and I are in separate categories so you don’t have to choose–you can vote for both of us! You will have to register to vote, but my online friends assure me it’s simple, painless, and spam-free.
Need a little more swaying before committing your time and fine motor skills? Well, check out these unpaid testimonials from my (possibly biased) online friends who feed my ego and make me happy:
A hilarious blog about the life of D and her guest blogger husband G will entertain, inspire and keep you coming back for more. She is obsessed with wine, decorating, handbags, and keeping life organized. Her motto: “Do it yourself, dammit!” -TBWB from Unskinny Boppy in her nomination of my blog for this award.
D. Oh my crazy D, of All Things G&D. She has also been nominated. She has blown me away with her writing. I know that child has a lot of ‘spunk’ in her, but I never knew how much until she started her own blog. Which I might add, has blown the f up. This exfarm girl has turned into a blogging sensation over night. -Sam from Twitterpated Moments who also shares my love of the word “whore” and lovingly whored out votes for Janny and I on her blog.
She’s already awesome because she’s from Wisconsin and in Badger-country but she’s also great because she loves Kate Spade and understands that in Wisconsin, showing up drunk to a restaurant should not be judged. -My fellow Midwesterner–the hilarious Jess over at The Everyday Adventures of Me in the City. She gets me.
I live for G&D’s next blog post like she lives for wine. Kidding. No, not really. Girl’s got to have her wine and I’m right there with her. She has a purely refreshing and chic take on life, sprinkled with humor and free spirit. -The elegant and always classy Freckles Chick.
Okay, those are the only people I can think of right now who have posted nice things about me (and are on my payroll) so hopefully that’s enough to sway you! If not, I’m not above whoring out G as well. Just so we’re clear.
Voting ends November 30th. Thanks everyone!
