Yes, that’s right. Yours truly, Reel Life With Jane, is nominated for a Bloggie Award for Best Entertainment Blog. I usually don’t get excited about this sort of thing, but for some reason, I’m SUPER GEEKED about this!

Needless to say, I want to win this baby, so please hop over to the Bloggie Awards site and vote for me. You’ll find me about half-way down in the Best Entertainment Blog section.

I’ve had an opportunity to look through all the nominees’ sites, and while they’re all fantastic, I’ve picked out a few favorites. I hope you’ll vote for them, too!

Check ‘em out after the jump…

Best Australian or New Zealand Blog: The Frugal Kiwi (Chickens and Bees and Soap, Oh My!)

Best Asian Blog: Bangkok Reality Smackdown (You go with your bad reality show smackdown self!)

Best African Blog: 3Limes (Cool name. Cooler writing. Anyone who mentions The Merchant of Venice, an Egyptian revolution, and Mexican chocolate cake in the same post has my vote)

Best European Blog: Lost in Cheeseland (because if I ever get to Paris, I need someone who knows their cafes)

Best Latin American Blog: And So I Whisper (gorgeous hand-knit designs; stunning photos)

Best Canadian Blog: Hydrantgirl and Her Firefighter (because there’s something completely awesome about a firefightin’ horseback ridin’ husband and wife. And yes, we do have A&W restaurants in the states, though not nearly enough)

Best Science Blog: David Robertson (a fun science blog that I can actually understand!)

Best Computer or Technology Blog: Wired (it’s hard not to love a blog with sub-blogs named ‘Danger Room’ and ‘Webmonkey’)

Best LGBT Blog: After Ellen (Dragon Tattoo! Pretty Little Liars! Jane Lynch!)

Best Blog About Religion: The Norse Mythology Blog (it’s Norse mythology! And the guy’s an expert! That’s the coolest thing I’ve thought about all day)

Best Blog About Politics: PunditMom (because I can get behind anyone who says she has time for other things, but has given up sleep. So with you on that, girlfriend)

Best Sports Blog: Kissing Suzy Kolber (I have no idea who Suzy is or anything about sports, but I love the names of the bloggers: Captain Caveman, Big Daddy Drew, and Christmas Ape)

Best Travel Blog: My Itchy Travel Feet (Donna Hull is my go-to travel girl. She’s been everywhere and lived to write about it)

Best Photography of a Blog: The Pioneer Woman (because not only does she have great photos, but also great posts, like “How to Load Hay on Your Feed Truck.” Farm girl here, so I know of which you speak)

Best Art, Craft or Design Blog: Young House Love (because I love any blogger who can write 1909 words about searching for a dining room table)

Best Food Blog: Bakerella (a sweet site that makes me happy, especially this post about Valentine’s Day. Can I eat my computer screen?)

Best Parenting Blog: Snarky Mommy (because I’m snarky, too. I’m one of you.)

Best Blog About Music: Music Road (Kerry Dexter is passionate about all things Irish, Scottish, Folk and Country Music)

Best Gossip Blog: TMZ (they’re on top of everything, and Harvey Levin and his little cup with the straw are completely fascinating to me)

Best Entertainment Blog: Reel Life With Jane (because I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!)

Best Fashion or Beauty Blog: Ain’t No Mom Jeans (real tips, advice and shaper camis for real women)

Best Topical Blog: Path to Freedom (where to begin? It’s everything I love! I’d write more, but I have to go read about storing stuff)

Best Designed Blog: Life As Rose (because I love any site with the person’s name in the title. That’s how I roll.)

Most Humorous Blog: Mommy Wants Vodka (because sometimes I want vodka, too. And I don’t even drink.)

Best Writing of a Blog: The Fabulous Geezersisters (hands down, some of the best writing on the Web or in the known universe)

Best Group or Community Blog: Curvy Girl Guide (because I’m curvy and proud of it!)

Best-Kept Secret Blog: Kevin & Amanda (because it’s a fun blog, and they seem like a couple that my husband and I could be friends with. If only we lived closer.)

Best New Blog: GeekMom (Yes! Moms can be geeks, too! We’re smart. We’re savvy. And we’re social. Get used to it.)

Please vote for the Bloggie Awards!


  1. First of all, congrats to you, Jane. You deserve to win.

    The Bloggie Awards is a great resource for discovering the best in blogging. I’m enjoying bookmarking blogs that are new to me. There’s a lot of writing talent out there on the internet.

    Also, thanks for mentioning My Itchy Travel Feet. We want to encourage boomers to get up off the couch and go!

  2. Congratulations Jane. And thanks for this run down with lots of good reasons for choosing the ones you chose. It’s all pretty overwhelming for me. I think I’ll stick with a handful of categories that I really am interested in–like MOVIES.

    • Thanks, Joanne! And thanks so much for the comment. My goal is to get around to all my favorites and leave comments this week, shout from the cyber-rooftops, and broaden my own sensibilities in the process.

  3. Thanks for the pick, Jane! I’ve been run off my feet in the past week so I haven’t had a chance to browse the full Bloggies list, but from what I’ve seen (like your site!) there’s heaps of good stuff on there!
