Bloggers Choice Awards, Blogmania, & Other News

Lots of exciting and wonderful things have been happening here in the world of ADON this week! Probably the most exciting thing to me is that A Dash of Nutmeg has been nominated for Best Food Blog in the Blogger's Choice '10 Awards! If you want to show your support for ADON voting is still open and you can vote for the blog here (you have to join the site, but it's free.):

My site was nominated for Best Food Blog!

Among the other excitement, ADON was approved for membership in the Foodie Blogroll, a community of fellow food-bloggers like myself. There's a nifty widget on the right sidebar of the blog now that you can use to get to other foodie blogs. In honor of the membership in the Foodie Blogroll I also gave the page a bit of a face lift. I was going to pay somebody else to do it for me but then I remembered my degree in computer science and knew I'd never live it down so I googled up some nice tutorials. So what do you think? (Sidenote: If you're looking for a new font to dress up your blog I highly recommend the free fonts here. I really had a hard time choosing.)

The Facebook fan page grew to over 50 fans strong this week and I want to thank each and every one of my fans/readers/followers. It's you and your comments that keep this blog going most days! And a big shout-out goes to my friend Shane who has been my biggest supporter since day one. If you haven't done so already you should all go check out his humor blog, BDGJM. (The link is to the left in the Blogroll section.) There has not been one blog of his that hasn't made me bust up laughing.

Lastly (but not least-ly), I have signed up to participate in this Spring's Blogmania event. Here's some more info from the event's organizer, Lynda Coker:

Coming - April 30, 2010

WOW! Aren’t you the lucky one! You’ve arrived at exactly the right time to explore lots of new blogs, all of which ARE GIVING AWAY A VERY SPECIAL BLOGMANIA GIVEAWAY (For One Day Only).

You literally have the chance to win hundreds of prizes. We’ve done all the work for you. No hunting or surfing for just the right blogs. Every blog you visit will have more links for you to follow, all of them with a special BLOGMANIA giveaway and just waiting for you to drop by.

Each blog will have a number like this (25 0f 48) and each new blog link will have a number. These numbers will allow you to keep track of which blogs you’ve visited and how many are left to visit. Now, really, isn’t this the easiest thing ever! AND SO MUCH FUN…

I know you’ll want to visit as many blogs today as you can. So, if you see something that interests you on any of our participating blogs, why not bookmark their site. Later, when you have more time, you can discover all its fabulous treasures.

Remember! The special Blogmania prizes are only available for one day, April 30th. The number of prizes you could win is only limited by the NUMBER of blogs you visit.

So I think that just about wraps up all of the wonderful excitement going on around here. Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the food. Future-Mr-ADON and myself are still trying to free ourselves from the piles of boxes all over our apartment from our recent move and the camera remains missing. I promise to find it this weekend sometime and you'll just get two blogs next week!
