Okay. So, I haven’t won any awards. I haven’t even been nominated. I want one.
I know it’s shameless and sort of icky to solicit nominations, but I’m doing it anyway. If you like my blog, feel free to nominate me for one (or all) of the following awards by completing the Blogstar Nomination Form below or click on the Awards tab at the top of this page.
If you nominate me, I automatically win. I know. It’s embarrassing…kind of like proclaiming yourself the winner of a race in which no one else is running. Worse, it breeds the sort of PC-everybody-is-a-winner crap that drives me crazy. The thing is, in order to claim one of these so-called awards, a nominee must comply with a list of rules including A) sharing interesting stuff about yourself and, B) nominating other bloggers for awards too. So you see, it’s more like a game of tag than some superficial award nomination. You nominate me, I nominate somebody, they nominate somebody else and so on and so on. It’s a way for us bloggers to get to know each other and issue kudos. So, blogstars, let’s spread the love…tag you’re it.
(NOTE TO NON-BLOGGERS WHO LOVE MY BLOG ENOUGH TO NOMINATE ME FOR AN AWARD: Unfortunately, only bloggers are entitled to nominate me for one of these awards. However, if you’d like to nominate me for some other award or make up an award of your own to give me, you can leave the details in the Anything I forgot? field of the Blogstar Nomination form. Alternately, you may sign up to FOLLOW Just Another Ordinary Day and LIKE me on Facebook .)

THE LIEBSTER AWARD
The Liebster Award is a way for bloggers to show their love for blogs with less than 200 followers (unfortunately, as of July 2013, I still meet this requirement). The rules mandate the recipient share 11 random personal facts, answer the 11 questions from the from the nominating blogger, and repeat the process by nominating additional blogs with less than 200 followers.

BEAUTIFUL BLOGGER AWARD
It’s not how it sounds. No need to redeem that laser hair removal coupon because no one is going to be expected to parade around in a swimsuit. Although if you think I’m good-looking, feel free to mention it when nominating. Here are the rules: 1. Copy and place the Beautiful Blogger Award in your post. 2.Thank the person that nominated you and link back to their blog. 3. Share seven things about yourself. 4. Nominate seven fellow bloggers.
