Not Enough of Ya Think I'm Sexy...Someone Else Is Going to Win the Blogger's Choice Award for Hottest Mommy Blogger

My site was nominated for Hottest Mommy Blogger!

Back in June, I posted my shameless self-promotion as the Hottest Mommy Blogger in the Great Wide Blogosphere and asked you to vote for me in the Blogger's Choice Awards. First, I'd like to thank the 14 of you who did, and to let you know that not enough of you think I'm sexy, so it looks like the award is going to go to one of the following:

  • The Pioneer Woman, who has 365 votes as of tonight at 8:30pm EDT; or
  • Dooce, neck and neck and trying to wrestle the Pioneer Woman to the ground with 362 votes.

The current runners-up, while not as far behind as Roxy, include:

  • Mom2My6Pack (she has 6 kids rather than an incredible relationship with beer) with 283 votes;
  • YouLookNiceToday (an audio-based Journal of Emotional Hygiene, staffed by lonelysandwich, scottsimpson, and hotdogsladies) with 233 votes;
  • Karen Cheng's Snippets of Life (about food, fashion, parenting, art & design, online shopping and finding inspiration in the beautiful quirks of life) with 199 votes;
  • Crissy's Page (Sometimes absurd, sometimes funny, always entertaining blog written by a gorgeous thirty-something mother/writer/librarian) with 176 votes;
  • Ashley's Closet (Confessions of an attention loving, weiner gobbling mom who is perpetually in pajamas & who enjoys shopping, gossip, and telling it like it is) with 158 votes; and
  • Sarcastic Mom (Wonderful pictures and creator of the best weekly meme out there) with 139 votes;

On the plus side, I've discovered some interesting new bloggers who don't promote themselves on BlogExplosion or EntreCard. And I made it to page 7 out of at least 187 pages (9 blogs per page) of competing hot mommy bloggers. As I tell London and Maddie, it's not whether you win or lose, but how you play the game.

Giving credit (and linky love) where credit is due, I'd like to thank:

She sits alone, waiting for suggestions
He's so nervous, avoiding all her questions
His lips are dry, her heart is gently pounding
Don't you just know exactly what they're thinking?

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on, honey, tell me so

He's acting shy, looking for an answer
Come on, honey, let's spend the night together
Now hold on a minute before we go much further
Give me a dime so I can phone my mother
They catch a cab to his high rise apartment
At last he can tell her exactly what his heart meant

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on, honey, tell me so

His heart's beating like a drum
'Cause at last he's got this girl home
Relax, baby, now we are alone


They wake at dawn 'cause all the birds are singing
Two total strangers but that ain't what they're thinking
Outside it's cold, misty and it's raining
They got each other, neither one's complaining
He say's I'm sorry but I'm out of milk and coffee
Never mind, sugar, we can watch the early movie

If you want my body and you think I'm sexy
Come on, sugar, let me know
If you really need me just reach out and touch me
Come on, honey, tell me so
Tell me so, baby

-- Rod Stewart, "Do Ya Think I'm Sexy?"

My loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers know that I sign up for everything IZEA: PayPerPost, SocialSpark, I'm thinking about signing up for the Blogger's Choice Awards, but I couldn't find a category that seemed to fit this blog. The award categories include Best Animal Blogger (oldest daughter allergic to pets), Best Blog of All Time (my ego's not quite that big), Most Obnoxious Blogger (hey, my mom taught me, "if you don't have anything nice to say, best not to say anything at all"), Best Humor Blog (I'm not that funny all the time)...

Then I came across "Hottest Mommy Blogger" and wondered if enough of ya think I'm sexy. I'm afraid I may be a bit late to the game, and Dooce may be running away with the prize, but I also know I can count on my loyal Roxiticus Desperate Housewives readers...come on, sugar let me know.

Hey Lady!

I'm Crissy from Crissy's Page and I just want you to know that we're ALL hot mommy bloggers. I've just been begging people to vote for me ad nauseum. They just want me to shut. up. already.

But I'm glad it's working because if any one of us smaller bloggers beats the pants off the mega-popular Dooce then it will be a victory for us all!

All for one and one for all!
