Announcing The ROFL Awards!

Edited to add: I'm glad so many of you are interested! There were some good questions asked that I wanted to answer here for clarity's sake. For the Sept award, you would nominate a post published in Sept. For the October award, you would nominate a post published in October and so on. The deadline for Sept. nominations is October 9th. We are doing the awards a little later in the month so we don't conflict with the Perfect Post Awards. You can e-mail me your nomination anytime between now and September 9th. A few days before the deadline for nominations, I will e-mail you a reminder and give you the button code to give to your awardee. Anyone can nominate a post and give a ROFL Award.

More questions? Just let me know. I look forward to sharing some laughs with you all each month!


Remember this post? Well, you were all so supportive of the idea that I've decided to do it - I've decided to start a new award! Yay! So here's the scoop...


Have you recently read a blog post that was so funny that you...

a) laughed out loud?
b) spit out your coffee?
c) chocked on your twizzlers?
d) fell off your chair?

Well, if so, then they probably deserve a ROFL Award!

The ROFL Awards are a monthly blogger award presented by bloggers to bloggers for some of the funniest posts on the Internet. Nominations are due by the second Monday of every month and awards will be announced the following day. If you'd like to be on the e-mail distribution list to receive more information and the button code for September, please leave a comment or send me an e-mail.

The ROFL Awards are co-organized by Mommy off the Record and Izzy Mom. Thank you to Kvetch for suggesting the name for this award. And thanks to all of YOU for being so funny. Keep us laughing. We depend on it for our therapy!

Mommy, I love to laugh!

WhooHoo! Can I give an award to your son for that cute picture? I guess it's not the "so cute my ovaries exploded" award.

A couple of questions: should we consider nominating any post from any time, or is the "September" award for posts published in September?

And the deadline for nominations is October 9?

Are you picking a winner from the posts we nominate, or is it like the Perfect Post awards, where anybody can nominate one post?

Okay, that was three questions.

Bub and Pie: excellent questions! For the Sept award, you would nominate a post published in Sept.
And yes, the deadline for Sept. nominations is October 9th. It will be structured like the Perfect Post awards where anyone can nominate a post and give a ROFL Award.

Izzy and I will be sending e-mails out monthly with these types of details so that people can be reminded about deadlines etc.

Crankmama: ROFL stands for "Rolling on the Floor Laughing"!

To all who inquired about the fabulous shirt Little Guy is wearing, I received it as a present from Debbie at i obsess. http://i-obsess.typepad.com/i_obsess/

She has a new online store opening up and I would bet she'd make a mint if she'd offer these in her store. I don't see these for sale (yet), but I bet if we inquired about it, we could pressure her to make more....

it's a genius idea for a contest - I need more laughter in my laugh, lately.

p.s. I think your son could probably win an award for cuteness.
