2014 Bloggy Award Winners!

The Bloggy Awards are designed to recognize superior achievement in blogging.  And to direct your attention to the best blogs out there.  It's a win-win.

Each year, the winners get a bigass trophy and cash.  Recognition is nicer when you can buy something with it.  :-)

Last week I hinted that we have two winners this year.  We do.  What I didn't say is that we're honoring one blog.  The two winners share the same blog, doing both individual and joint posts.  In fact, they're sisters!

Megan and Nora share the blog Two Birds.  They post creative and beautiful outfits with admirable frequency.  Their fashion-choices always put ideas in my head.  Plus, they're as attractive as professional models so you think you're looking at magazine photos.

Even better than that are their personalities.  Megan and Nora are sweet and generous.  Every day, they float around the blogosphere leaving comments of support and wisdom.  They were the most prolific, productive bloggers on my radar this year, certainly deserving of awards.

I had the good fortune to meet Megan and Nora in person during my visit to Minnesota in October.  They live in the fun, hip city of Minneapolis with their husbands, children and other three sisters.  Nora just announced she's moving with her husband and children to California which will be a big adjustment.  Let's wish her well on that major transition.

And let's congratulate both of these wonderful gals for a job well done!!

  13. Sensational idea, dear Ally!!! I'm thrilled for the winners and am all but doing a jig of happiness (don't want to wake up the sleeping dog - and no, I'm not speaking metaphorically :D) for both of these dear, lovely sisters who have inspired and engaged you with their fantastic blog for quite some time now. I'm sure that this post will lead many others to discover (or rediscover) their site and soon find the very same rings true for them, as well.

    ♥ Jessica
