First Annual BLOGSCARS

Welcome to

 photo blogscarslogo_zps560b6acd.jpg

It's a night where your favorite blogstars are featured wearing jeans, tees, yoga pants, and other deliciously comfortable clothes as they blog away and create those amazing posts that you all love!

As you saw yesterday, there are four categories and amazing bloggers featured in each one.
Enjoy the night and make sure to visit these awesome bloggers.
Stick around after the video post to see my commentary.


All of these bloggers do a phenomenal job with their blogs, that's why they were chosen as nominees.  They stood out from so many contenders and as I said in yesterday's post, I kept it short and simple with only four award categories.  There could be so many! The blogging talent out there is something that I personally love to discover and I hope you enjoyed this fun awards show.

I Wore Yoga Pants to Work won the Popular Blog Link-Up because in its simplicity, it was perfect for every blogger out there.  We live in a society in which people don't like to talk about themselves.  That's why people get weird about interviews.  Bloggers are a different breed.  However, we don't always get that opportunity to bring up random stuff about ourselves.  It was a brilliant link-up so kudos to Whitty :)

Craft, Interrupted won the Best DIY Birthday because it was just one of those birthday parties that you knew that if you were a kid, you would have loved it!  Let's be honest, you love it now as an adult.  Not only did they post about the birthday party but they provided free tutorial and printables in follow-up posts.  It was creative, affordable and fun.  I always love kids' birthday parties that are interactive, engaging, and are more than opening presents and birthday cake (although I do love me some birthday cake).  All I've got to say is that they are some awesome mommas!

Vicki Christine won the Best Mommy Moment because of her writing style throughout her entire pregnancy.  She allowed us into her birthing room with her family and it was intimate and very personal.  She also included humor and honesty with the post, and makes motherhood looks easy and awesome.

Lindsay from Trial by Sapphire won the Down-to-Earth post because she covered a topic that I feel often fuels the blogging world.  Everything is really face value.  You might not ever meet your favorite blogger but you love to hear about their life, the people that choose to sponsor them, and the things that they buy.  At the chance of winning an expensive prize, we follow X number of blogs and may or many not win.  Sometimes it can be about keeping up with appearances and she gives a brilliant post on establishing your self-worth and loving who you are without basing that on others' opinions.  I loved each of the Down-to-Earth posts but that one just rang so true and I felt that a lot of folks could appreciate it.

Thanks for reading and watching!
I hope you enjoyed it and I hope next year is just as fabulous with more categories :)

Be sure to check out this month's featured blog:


  1. It looks like you put so much work into this- I'm so impressed and think you made great choices! Looking forward to the 2nd annual Blogscars ;)

    1. Thank you so much Kaity! I did put a lot of work into it, probably more than what folks normally expect for a "blog post." But, the idea came to me and a lot of these bloggers are so incredibly wonderful. Therefore it seemed completely justifiable to me (plus, I'm an enabler, so everything can be justifiable). I'm glad you appreciate the post and I look forward to more comments from you :)

  2. WOW!!!! You did an AMAZING job with the video! Great job!! So cute!


    1. Thanks AJ! In referencing the "real" Oscars, I would die to wear some of those gowns. They're so beautiful. I know your fashion-oriented self must have been loving the photographs and television footage of the red carpet :)

    1. Haha who knows? Maybe if my blog gets bigger by next year's Oscars, I'll have a full arsenal of award categories and trophies :)

  4. This is the most amazing gesture of "community" I've ever seen in the blogosphere! You are awesome, Kim! Thank you for sharing a few of the blogs you love and why. Truly, this is such a cool post (as well as the nomination post)!

    1. Thank you so much! Your kind words mean so much to me. Congratulations on winning, but you truly deserve it. I've been trying to grow and cultivate my blog, but sometimes that can be difficult when competing with blogs doing constant reviews, giveaways, etc. Your post reminded me to stay true to myself and understand that not everyone will have/appreciate/respect my viewpoints but at the end of the day, it's still my blog. I look forward to reading more of your posts. You truly are one of my favorite bloggers.

  5. Thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I follow a lot of these blogs regularly, but it was wonderful to see particular posts highlighted. I think sometimes when I'm catching up on blog reading, I'm reading so many posts so quickly that I'm not completely absorbing everything. So thank you! I know it must have taken forever to put all this together.

    1. Thank you for that wonderful compliment! It was my pleasure to put this together. As time consuming as it was, it gave me the opportunity to go over the written material that some of my favorite bloggers have produced. It reminded me why I follow them and read their work, so it was a lot of fun. I totally know what you mean though by going over things too quickly. Each month, I showcase my "blog obsessions," but I think from now on I will add what posts make them stand out. For me, content makes or breaks a blog. I love when bloggers can connect with their readers in a personal way, rather than solely through giveaways. Whew, this is turning into a long reply post so thank you for stopping by and I look forward to future comments from you :)
