 So...a rather random annoucement/guest post today! Ever heard of THE BLOGGY AWARDS? Well my good friends Nikki and Eileen run this thing. It's Grammys/Oscars/Etc. for bloggers! Cool right? Yes indeed cool. It went off well last year and it's back this year! But time to get you all involved! So here's what the Nikster has to say as it kicks off TODAY with voting!

Enter Nikki from Fiction Freak
Okay, guys. I'm all the way here from The Bloggy Awards Site to tell you just what the Bloggy Awards are. (AKA, just copy pasting from the site. Visit the blog to nominate your favorite bloggers!) 

Rules
  • When talking about the Awards, please use the hastag #BloggyAwards13
  • No nominating for yourself, though feel free to go twitter rampaging!
    • We're going off the honor system here, so please don't lie! 
  • No giveaways please! We will be checking and any giveaways related to the Awards will result in immediate disqualification
  • IF YOU WON AN AWARD LAST YEAR, YOU CAN NOT BE IN THE VOTING FOR THE SAME CATEGORY. Any other category you didn't win in last year is fine! Next year, feel free to enter again! This is to give more people a better chance!
  • Only the top 5 nominated bloggers will make it into voting, though we will make exceptions for ties or extremely close wins
  • Each blogger may only be an official nominee for 3 categories. 
    • If you make it into the voting for 3+ categories, we will email/tweet you to see which categories you'd like to stay in. 
    • If you do not respond, we will be forced to choose the 3 categories that are up for voting the soonest.
  • EACH BLOGGER MUST REPLY TO THE OFFICIAL NOMINEE EMAIL AND TURN IN THE NEEDED MATERIALS (like last year, we will be asking for a "testimony"[1-3] from a fellow blogger or an author friend). Please turn these in a day before voting goes up. We'll tweet you to let you know!
  • Each blogger may only win one category. 
    • We will also be emailing/tweeting about this. If you don't respond, again, we'll choose the first category that ended.
