NEW YORK (November 2, 2010) — Thousands of votes were cast and more than 1,500 nominations were made for last year’s first-ever The Bump Mommy Blog Awards. Now, mommy bloggers across the Web are gearing up for another chance to grab the ultimate title of “Best Mommy Blogger.” TheBump.com (www.thebump.com), a website for expectant and first-time parents, today announced the launch of the 2ND Annual The Bump Mommy Blog Awards program (www.thebump.com/blogawards).
Kicking off today through Monday, November 8, on www.thebump.com/blogawards, TheBump.com invites mommy (and daddy!) bloggers and their loyal fans to nominate their favorite websites for The Bump Mommy Blog Awards. From adoption blogs and fertility blogs to stay-at-home-mom blogs and working mom blogs, TheBump.com wants to showcase the best of the best in each of the 17 blog categories for all to see.
“When first-time moms and dads are looking for parenting advice, the first people they turn to are other parents,” says Carley Roney, editor in chief of TheBump.com. “Mommy and daddy bloggers provide incredibly supportive communities that help connect parents to others who are at the same point in their life, and we’re thrilled that The Bump Mommy Blog Awards can bring recognition to all the helpful information and services they’re sharing.”
On Tuesday, November 9, TheBump.com, along with the help of two guest judges — actress and mommy designer, Ali Landry and last year’s Mommy Blog Award grand-prize winner Heather Spohr of TheSpohrsAreMultiplying.com — will showcase up to 10 of the most noteworthy finalists for each of the 17 blog categories. Visitors can then review the top entries and vote for their favorite blogs until Friday, November 12.
On Tuesday, November 16, the winners of each blog category will be announced and will automatically be entered in the running for the title of Best Overall Blog. Visitors will have until Friday, November 19, to cast their votes. The winner will be announced on Tuesday, November 23.
What’s at stake? Not just the recognition of being the best blog…but the grand-prize winner will also receive an Apple iPad and keyboard dock from TheBump.com — to help them blog in fashion, of course! Category prize winners won’t go empty-handed, as each of the 17 blog category winners will receive a gift card for $50 from Pottery Barn Kids as well as a copy of The Baby Bump, a comprehensive guide that offers expert and real mom advice on surviving those all-important nine months, and the first-ever baby book brought to you by Carley Roney and the editors of TheBump.com.
