Hidden Treasure Nominations


I have hummed and hawed about putting up my nominations for the Hidden Treasure Awards. But in thinking on it, the Award is supposed to be for (to quote Jule's who is hosting the awards) "The idea behind the Hidden Treasure Blog Awards is to find those well-written posts which may have otherwise been overlooked. It is a writing contest, not a popularity contest".

And I thought, if they are hidden, which probably means they don't have much traffic, yet, then how would they ever get nominated more than once, which you need in order to be able to get to the voting round. So therefore, after that long-winded explanation, here is my nominations for the Hidden Treasure Awards. Please check them out. They really are hidden gems. And maybe you'll decide they are deserving of a nomination also. But do hurry because nominations close today, February 7 at midnight. (Not sure if that is est or mst or pst, so get them in!)

Thank you Susanne!
You have blessed me beyond words. And if God can use my little struggles to encourage another, than praise Him!
You are truly a Hidden Treasure!

HOW do we nominate? I can't seem to find that under the guidelines.

BTW, I am bummed that you weren't a finalist on a certain category in the Share the Love blog awards. BUMMED. I almost commited a faux pas and blogged about it. Refrained in time. :)

Susan--I agree several of those bloggers who you nominated. I will be interested to see how it all turns out tomorrow with the finalists.

I posted mine for a couple of reasons--so that perhaps they would be nominated by someone, but at the very least, people might go check out those specific posts that I had enjoyed.

Wonderful idea! All of them were great, but I loved one post in particular - it warmed my heart and I am going to vote right now for her! It's amazing how God favors His hidden treasures.

Wow, Susanne. You really did your homework and got to it. Thank you for so many nice new places to visit. Can't wait to see the finals when Jules gets them up. I imagine it will be a treasure trove of undiscovered great writing.
