Why Not? The 2007 Performancing Blog Awards Nominations (Need Write-Ins)

Mister D:

Okay, this is so shameless, but I’m going to ask you germs and disinfectants (which is which??? girls and boys????) to play along if you like or have time. Performancing.com is holding their annual 2007 Performancing Blog Awards and are calling for “write-in” nominations. I don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning this, but promotion is promotion…and it’s a chance to get more people aware of Bette’s presence on-line. Since my site is part blog/part fansite…I think we fit the bill to participate. It’s a win/win for all of us to get Bette’s name, show, enviromental work, and such to new viewers. Plus it feeds my rapidly shrinking ego…which shrinks, you know, other parts….:-( LOL

Here are the categories – I italicized the ones where I could remotely fit in. I don’t care which you choose to use as long as we get Bette’s name out there. So if you do participate, make sure when you put my link name that you write Bette Midler beside it:

Performancing is all about encouraging bloggers to make good blogs. And this year, we’re going to recognize the best blogs in the business with the first annual Performancing Blog Awards.

Starting today, we’re opening up nominations for the best best blogs or bloggers in each category. You are free to nominate your own blog, but we’d also encourage you to nominate others…blogs and bloggers that you truly believe in.

In addition, why not help spread the word about the Performancing Blog Awards by making a post on your own blog. You are free to hotlink the image and also include the following categories that are up for nomination.

Each category will have a single winner, two runners up, and possibly some honorable mentions. Our goal is to highlight the very best that the blogosphere has to offer, and we appreciate any tips/help that the Performancing community can provide to help us make our decisions:

But, it does work in promoting Bette…whether we win or lose… But, this means I will have to write my “About” crap…and I am such a procrastinator…

  1. Well, thank you! I don’t see too many people peeing their pants with excitement about doing this…LOL But it is the busiest time of year….LOL I tried to give an answer for all, but some people are just voting for one category…so you don’t have to put down something for everything…..Here’s what I wrote:

    I, too, will be shamelessly self promoting and nominate my own blog, Bootleg Betty – it’s part fan site/part blog for Ms. Bette Midler – in one or two categories. Yes, it has to do with Bette Midler, but incorporates many other issues/things related to her in some aspect or another….politics, the environment, singer/songwriters she uses, books of interest to her or her friends…so it’s a little more than what people expect…mature readers only! Thanks for the opportunity, and I must say I’ve checked out a lot of blogs being nominated and am just blown away. But I digress, so I’ll try to do the best I can here:

    1. The Best Overall Blog – Dumb Little Man Tips – Just great practical tips for everday living…

    2. The Most Influential Blogger – Zen Habits – I have a tendency to lean towards the negative, so a site like this is something I really need….this site would be great for everyone to read first thing in the morning. We’d have a more peaceful world.

    3. The Best Blog Design – Mine – Bette Midler: Bootleg Betty – I’ve been told it’s easy to navigate by some high authoritities (who knew?) and the layout and colors are well….fun and divine…:-)

    5. The Best Blog Name – Mine – Bette Midler: Bootleg Betty – a take off on Bette’s nickname…Bathhouse Betty…when I started it, I knew I would be bootlegging things here and there….hence the name. If I had to do it over though, I probably would have named it something different.

    6. The Best New Blog – The Jeremy Show – Great writer – funny, real, sad, and entertaining…

    8. The Most Improved Blog of 2007 – Mine: Bette Midler: Bootleg Betty – Sorry…me again, but I’ve worked so hard and so long on this, I’m just excited about what I accomplished, but it would be nothing without the readers who participate and help out when they can. I love my readers.

    9. The Best Blogs You’ve Never Heard Of – The Jeremy Show – Great writer – funny, real, sad, and entertaining…

    10. The Best Blog Podcast – Feast of Fools – two gay guys just having a gay old time talking and interviewing…

    12. The Best Video Blog – Crooks and Liars – keeping the media on their toes…awesome job guys.

    13. The Best Writing/Blogging Blog – Dumb Little Man Tips – Just great practical tips for everday living…

    14. The Best Science/Technology Blog – Slashdot

    15. The Most Controversial Blog – The Rude Pundit – political, rude, and hilarious…I love it.

    17. The Best Celeb/Style Blog- Mine: Bette Midler: Bootleg Betty – What else can I say????

    21. The Best Blog WebHost- In my world, we use ME as the “host,” but now I get it…so WordPress! LOL

    23. The Best Political Blog – BuzzFlash – In your face politics…very left wing….very interesting.

    25. The Funniest Blog – The Rude Pundit – political, rude, and hilarious…I love it.

    27. The Best Education Blog – ILibrarian

    28. The Best Entertainment Blog (Music, TV, Movies) – Pop Matters – Has everything entertainment and does it well without being cynical and mean about it….

  3. LOL…a lot of people are having trouble. I did at first. All I remember doing is clicking on comments and was asked to register…I did…and wrote my comment…but it took a long time to show up…

    I’ll log out of that site and see if I can remember anything else….

    Love, Mister D
