Last year at this time, I wasn’t even a real blogger, and so I’m really excited to get to participate in the nominations to share my favorite blogs with everyone!  I know I won’t have nominations for every category, since I’m fairly new to the blogging community, but some people really stick out so I want to make sure I include them.

If you don’t know what these awards are, they’re being hosted by Elm @ Just Call me Elm or Something.  She has a bunch of categories that we have to come up with nominations for.  The full list of nomination categories are rules are over on her blog, so check them out!

Blog of the Year
For this one, there were a lot of really amazing blogs that I love.  In the end, I had to go with Chelsea @ The Suspense is Thrilling Me, because she always posts really high quality content consistently, and I know I can always look to her blog for recommendations and a good read!

Most Approachable Blogger
This award easily goes to Amber @ Mile Long Bookshelf.  Even though I didn’t know a lot of people in the blogosphere, she’s helped me out a lot, and whenever I reached out she was willing to give me advice and help me figure out how to actually blog!

Most Positive Blog
I think that this blogger award has to go to Nina @ Thehappylife101 because she is always ceaselessly positive, and although I haven’t talked to her a lot, she is one of the sweetest people I’ve met!  Her blog is filled with inspirational advice and positivity.

Best Looking Blog
This one is so hard because there’s so many amazing blogs out there, and I wish I could nominate 20 different blogs!  I have to go with Train of Thought @ My Bookish Life, because whenever I open her blog page I’m just in awe of the colors and everything else.

Most Relatable Blog
For me, this one was easy.  It’s Elm @ Just Call me Elm because her posts always have me silently cheering along, or nodding my head because I would act the same way in that situation.  Her posts always put me in a good mood because I’m able to laugh and feel like there are other people out there like me.

Funniest Blogger
This is a bit of an unexpected nomination, but I love Ben @ Math With Bad Drawings and his blog.  It never fails to make me laugh, his pictures are incredible, and the stories are even better.  If you ever hated math, loved it, or anything in between, you will be sure to relate to Ben’s writings.

The Wildcard
My Wildcard award nomination goes Jill @ Rant and Rave About Books (EDIT 1/8/2022: blog has been deleted).  I think she deserves a multitasking award, because not only is she trying to get her first book published, but she is committed to writing quality reviews, posting fun memes, and other content intermixed.  Her blog always has life on it, despite everything she has going, and so I think she deserves to be nominated.

That’s all for my nominations!  Make sure you head over to Elm’s page and vote your nominations for the 2016 blogger awards!
