Friends of the Intertron, I need your help. You have already been so kind and nominated the heck out of me when I made a plea earlier in the summer. I found out yesterday that my little ol’ blog is a FINALIST (one of three) in the Get Babied Austin Birth Awards. This is a pretty big deal here. My midwife and belly caster (Liane MacPherson) and her partner/OB (Andrea Campaigne) are on the list. My chiropractor is on the list (Ron Burnett @ Inner Sun Chiropractic). Lot and lots of local businesses – and this is where a lot of people/brands/etc get credibility in the Austin birthing community. And I’m on it! So please, pleasepleaseplease, could you take the time to vote HERE for I’ll Sleep When They’re Grown for Best Local Pregnancy Blog?
It’s filled with a bunch of categories, so you have to do some scrolling if you’re not familiar with anyone else listed (well, besides giving my aforementioned peeps above a vote, because I can personally vouch for their awesomeness). Here’s a screen cap of where my blog is listed.
Thank you. You’re the best. It was quite an honor to have enough nominations to make it on the shortlist. I am the only personal blog on there, and I’m pretty sure the only one who uses “cooter” and “boobs” to tell a story. After the high of my performance on Friday, I was feeling mopey by the end of the weekend (because I used up all of my happy – does that ever happen to you?) so when I read my email with this baby attached, my heart soared once again.
There are TWO WEEKS to vote, and you have to cast your ballot by Oct. 15. My birthday is very close to the date when they reveal the winners – what a 33rd bday present that would be! Let’s do it, friends.
