We are already into week four of our #PBSG #52Snapshots of Life photo challenge! The word of the week is dream, and dreaming is what I am doing and what my post today is all about!
As a new blogger, I entered several contests, but made the decision to never do it again. I learned popularity contests on the web are simply not for me. I don’t feel right hounding people to vote for me so contests are a thing of the past. The one thing I am interested in would be the Nose to Nose Award nominations. Being a scent hound it would be very fitting to receive a nomination! The BlogPaws Nose to Nose Award nominations are now open and nominations will be accepted through January 31. There is no public voting as the nomination winners are decided on by a panel of judges.
I often receive comments and messages from my readers telling me how amazing my photos are, or how much you love my writing style, blog or specific post. For this reason, I’m asking for your nominations. There are twelve areas for blogs to be nominated in. The ones I could see my blog in are: Best Written Blog Post, Best Pet Humor Blog, Best Dog Blog, and Best Pet Photo On A Blog. To nominate my blog all you have to do is go to the nomination site and fill out the form. Simple raise your paw in a vote for Emma to help my dream come true. To assist you in filling out the form, some of the information you will need about me is as follows:
- Creator of the work (have to use Mom on this one): Joy Schneider
- Contact email: MyGBGVLife@gmail.com
- BlogPaws Profile: http://community.blogpaws.com/profile/Emma152
- Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/MyGBGVLife
- Twitter Account: https://twitter.com/mygbgvlife
I know you all won’t leave me hanging! I mean really, can you say “no” to my sweet little face? It would be a great honor to win a nomination spot, but the competition is tough which is why I need my friends to please send in your nominations so I may be recognized. Your nominations remain secret from me, which means I won’t know who nominates me or what I am nominated for. My hope is, you think seriously about what you really love about my blog, and nominate it by January 31, so my dream has a chance of coming true. A big GBGV thank you in advance 🙂
My friends at The Lazy Pitbull had the idea for this 52 Snapshots of Life photo challenge. Feel free to join in the fun on your blog, and/or social media, just use the hashtags #PBSG and #52Snapshots. If you are up for some photography fun, the more the merrier, come and join us! The linky for the current week will be posted on Friday mornings.
ufff… done. Think I deserved a treat and a nap now :o) Good luck and I hope you will win by a nose!
Awww…thank you. You deserve a super duper nap followed by a great snack!
Molly The Wally says
We nominated you. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly
Thank you! I so appreciate it 🙂
Ellen Shedlarz says
Show can you resist that face!
Cuteness goes a long way with humans 😉
We were already eyeing you up for the best dog blog or pet humor blog! We hope to be nominated for best new blog!! Maybe I will ask Mom to create a post like this as well! Good thinking Emma…is there an award for Dog Super Genius!?
The problem is Mom doesn’t like to ask anyone for anything, but I’m a dog who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go get it. So, yes, this post was my idea, we would be flattered for a nomination. We love your blog as well and wish you luck in the new blog category. You have very informative posts and pretty nice pics too 😉
Jen Jelly says
A proper lady would never reveal who she’s nominated, but I can say that I’m not able to say no to a certain cute face 🙂
I don’t want anyone to feel pressured, so I would never ask anyone to reveal whether or not they nominated me…all I can say is I sure have a cute mug…whatever that means 😉
Will and Eko says
Just nominated ya, good luck guys!
Pawsome! Love you guys…if I’m up against your blog, I wouldn’t stand a furry chance!
I totally think you deserve a nomination. Who can resist that face?
Your photography does for sure! So many good blogs, so few spots for nominations!
SlimDoggy (@MySlimDoggy) says
I think that’s a great dream Emma, and we will be putting our nominations in this week – and we’ll be sure to recognize our friend 🙂
We are working on our nominations as well. A dog has to dream.
Jan K says
That is a great dream, Emma, and we definitely think it could come true! I am planning to make some nominations and you just might be on my list. 🙂
No pressure on anyone. I wanted to call attention to the nomination process, and hope I might have a chance. We have to work on ours too this week.
What fun!! Good luck. But tell the truth…aren’t you really dreaming about rabbits? and possibly about being an only dog?? tee hee… your doodle friend Dash
I got some only dog time last week which was really fun, but being an only dog would be boring in the long run. I do have to admit I would prefer catching a wabbit to a nomination, but maybe I can have both.
Sparkle the PBGV says
Good luck, Emma! Dream big! I am glad you found your ear! XOXO Sparkle the PBGV
I have lots of big dreams. Dreams motivate one to keep working towards goals.
Frankie and Ernie says
WE hope that you do VERY MUCH GRRREAT…
All a dog can do is try you know. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll drown my sorrows in some wabbit jerky.
You sure deserve a win!!!
It would sure be fun to get a nomination at least!
We also think you deserve a win for one or more of the categories you have been nominated for!!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilb
We will see. You can never win if you don’t try.
You deserve to win 🙂
I figure it is worth a try.
2 Brown Dawgs says
Best of luck with the contest!
M. K. Clinton says
Mom is making lists of nominations! There are so many fantastic bloggers. Of course, I am putting my paw in for my Sweetie! ♥ ♥ Bentley
We have a list too, but it is so hard to decide. If you don’t try, you will never win, so we are trying. We are just happy it isn’t a popular voting contest! We have you on our radar too 😉
Lauren Miller says
Good luck, Emma!! I think your blog is fantastic!
Thank you. All I can do is try.
Maria Sadowski says
Done. Good luck! I love your blog and you would definitely be a worthy winner. =)
Thank you! Paws crossed…we shall see.
Two French Bulldogs says
you gotta ask, so we will nominate, whoooa
Lily & Edward
You two are so sweet. We are working on our nominations this week 😉
Whitley Westie says
I think ya definitely deserve a win!
Thank you my friend. I would be thrilled to just get a nomination.
Hi Emma! I am not very familiar with how the BlogPaws contests work, but I love your blog. I think you and your mom are very creative and funny. And the photos are great. I’m going to nominate you for best photo.
Thank you so much. We think it would be such an honor to be nominated. We will never know if we have a chance if we don’t try.
I hope you win a prize. Because I can’t wait to see what you decide to wear to the awards ceremony.
One of my fancy collars, and of course, I would need a new hat!
Pooch Smooches says
I’m sure you’d have a good chance at a nomination and win, Emma! Will be figuring out my nominations later this week. We’ve got you on the list! (We agree – those popularity contests aren’t very fun to join! It’s great that the BlogPaws voting isn’t like that!)
Popularity contests are no fun for us. Mom doesn’t like to ask anyone for anything, so even this post goes against her thinking a bit, but I’m not shy…I go for what I want, so she let me do it. We are working on our nominations too. It is a tough task.
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
Cute post and yes you should be nominated and win this award, it is so fitting.
We know EXACTLY how you feel. After being “hounded” (sorry) to promote ourselves in the Petties last year (they suck you in, dangling that donation to your shelter if you win, yanno) we vowed we would NOT do it again. It just felt so …icky.
We’d like to win a Nose to Nose for cat blogging but we haven’t had the heart to ask for nominations on our blog yet, either. But we’re happy to nominate you, dear friends!
Mom didn’t want to do the post, but last year everyone said you need to ask, so I forced her to let me do it. Mom never asks for anything, but I’m not afraid to, so I did it! You all have the best photos and great humor too! We are still working on our list to enter this weekend.
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Done my friend – best of luck to you…
You are so sweet. Thank you.
Cathy Keisha says
It’s good to dream big. I gave up entering contests too because of all the contest bots and stuff it’s impossible to win.
Contests are awful, but this award is great since it is just nominations and a panel of judges chooses.
Jody Miller-Young says
Will definitely nominate you, Emma! would love if you would nominate Bark & Swagger for Best New Blog and for Best Blog Post for my two-parter on the No Kill Movement. I’ve gotten a lot of great feedback on that post. Love your blog! Good luck re the Nose-to-Nose Awards! And yes, a very cute mug! 🙂
Thank you! I will be putting in my nominations today or tomorrow, and thinking of you and your post! Good luck to us both.
Terra Toby says
Good luck Bailey with the nomination. You’re very smart to include all your info,making it easy for your fans. I nominated two blogs last year and it took a lot more time than I expected for that very reason.
That is part of the problem with nominations, it takes a lot of time to do, so I tried to help out a bit. Thank you.
Terra Toby says
Oops sorry for the typo EMMA!!!!
Miss Harper Lee says
I have a pretty good feeling that all your dreams will come true, Emma!
It sure would be fun, but one never knows and it is good to dream.
