Fantastic Fridge and Excellent Awards

I am proud to announce that My Fantastic Fridge Award is finished and ready to be awarded to the fantastic blogs that have earned a spot on my fridge. These blogs earned this distinction last month (see this post). Thank you for waiting patiently for this award.

Fantastic Fridge Award

On the Upside,
You Don't Have to Like Me...,
Classy Chaos,
Ordinary Art,
Moosh in Indy,
From the Land of Monkeys and Princesses,
Taken with a Grain of Salt,
Sarah and the Goon Squad,
The Bell Pages,
Latte Mommy,
The Superdad Chronicles and
Cry It Out: Adventures of a stay-at-home dad

Here is the code so you can add this award to your blog:

For those of you wondering how to earn a spot on my fridge, here is how it works. I use Google reader to subscribe to the blogs on my blogroll. When I read a post that really strikes my fancy I tag it for my fridge. Every couple of months I go through my reader and award spots on my fridge based on how many tags each blog received.

How do I pick blogs for my blogroll? Your comment, I follow. If I enjoy myself then I add your blog to my reader. If I have been popping in on your blog, but you are not listed on my blogroll, leave me a comment so I can get you on there.


I have one more award to give out. I have been given the award of excellence from Maria at Mommy of Four, OhMommy at Classy Chaos and The Sports Mama at You Don't Have to Like Me. Thank you very much ladies. I appreciate it.

This award comes with rules and they are: By accepting this Excellent Blog Award, you have to award it to 10 more people whose blogs you find Excellent Award worthy. You can give it to as many people as you want-even those that have received it already, but please award at least 10 people.

I would like to pass this award on to

  1. Huckdoll at Hey, I'm Going Crazy, Are you Coming?
  2. Liz at The Lizness
  3. Carrie at The Gremlin Wrangler
  4. Don Mills Diva
  5. Lizzi at Dizzi Lizzi
  6. Amy at The Brat Pack
  7. Girlymom at The Red Door
  8. Lunanik at Secrets of a Black Heart
  9. Kim at Jogging in Circles
  10. Jim at The Busy Dad Blog
Wow, people that was a lot of hyperlinking! My fingers are killing me. It is time to pour myself a glass of wine. Don't forget to Blog Hop tonight.
