Well, I entered a few months ago. As I was reading one of my favorite magazines, Country Living, I came across this contest to enter your favorite blog in their Blue Ribbon Blogger Awards. I immediately thought, I have a blog. I decided to give it a go and enter. I also asked for your nominations. I guess it worked. Late afternoon yesterday, at 4:47pm, I received an email notifying me that my blog is one of the finalists in the award contest! I did not win yet, but wow, I got goosebumps! I could not believe it!
I also was notified that from September 1st through the 15th, fans of Tilly’s Nest can enter us in the Reader’s Choice Category. Would you be so kind?
Tilly’s Nest has become so much more than just keeping an online diary about our chicken adventures. Keeping backyard chickens has been life changing as many of you know through our experiences and your own. If selected, Tilly’s Nest will be featured in the February 2012 issue of County Living and I will be able to share the joy of backyard chickens with their readers.
Thank you in advance to all of you who have made Tilly’s Nest what it is today. I certainly would not be here without all of your love, encouragement and support in my endeavors keeping backyard chickens with my family.
Much love and thanks~ Melissa
P.S. Would someone please pinch me?

Thank you so much Deb and Maryann for all of your support! Thank you for the compliment about the photo too. A dear friend took the picture. Maryann you were right the first time, that is my little Sunshine.

My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
Wow! What exciting news–you have my vote for sure!
I have just one question. How do you make your blog so awesome and look so nice? I tried to make my blog look nice… and guess what? Nothing even as near as yours… How did you make the header/logo?! Or did you get someone to do it?
I <3 Your Blog!
I emailed you twice. Please try emailing me at email@example.com. I can't wait for you to enjoy the notecards. Thank you again!
Thank you so much Rebecca.
Daffodil, I guess you could say it runs in the family…the entire website is all done by me with the help of blogger of course 🙂 I designed the header/logo and my sister helped bring it to life. Thank you for the lovely compliments. One of my hobbies is photography as well. Just a hidden talent I suppose 🙂
Thank you Anne!
