Blog Of The Year - Winner!



There were many excellent blogs nominated for the Bloggy Award.  Our team of judges reviewed each one carefully.  An effort to bribe us was briefly considered but ultimately rejected when we decided that wouldn't be fair.  And, besides, it wasn't enough candy.  :)

We decided to up our game and bought a real, bigass trophy to award to the winner.  We had the trophy engraved and everything.  Stuffed with a $100 bill, this beauty can be displayed with pride on any mantelpiece. 

While many of the blogs we considered were terrific, the one we chose is exceptional.  It possesses the magic and charm the Bloggy Award will become known for.  Years from now, when the media interview us on why we started the award, we'll point to this year's winner and say it was obvious: her blog is so good it required recognition.  This talented blogger is inaugurating the tradition by her shining light.

So, without further ado (what the hell is ado?), let's proceed.  Billy Crystal wants to tell a few jokes but we don't have time.  On with the show.

The winner of the 2012 Bloggy  Award for best Blog Of The Year, for outstanding achievement in the field of blogging while managing a busy worklife, caring for her family and bringing endless smiles to her friends with extraordinary kindness and personal style, is...
 
Lynne (Practical Paralegalism)


If you don't know Lynne's blog, head there right now!  Don't miss out on the fun.  Lynne posts regularly, displays attractive outfits, has a great sense of humor and is one of the nicest people on the planet.  She's a worthy recipient of the Bloggy Award, as demonstrated by the many nominations she received.  I confirmed Lynne is a real human being and not a computer program cranking out blog posts by meeting Lynne in person two months ago (here).

Lynne touches many lives and, for that, she is hereby recognized and applauded.  Yay, Lynne!




P.S., Megan, the bribe might have worked if it had been TWO boxes of Goo Goo Clusters.  Try again next year. :)
