Self-Conscious Self-Promotion


Hey, you.  
The one(s) who nominated me for the Sheenazing Blogger Awards.  You rock.  Thank you.  I really feel weird about self-promotion but if you'd like to vote for Better Than Eden, you can click this link.  Would you consider doing that?  When Bonnie mentioned that I had been nominated, I just assumed it was in the Underappreciated category (i.e. for the small blogs) but turns out I'm in the Best Looking Blog AND the Best Lifestyle Blog categories.  I'm blushing. 

And while I very much appreciate the recognition, I think what makes me most want this award is the privilege of being able to display that awesome graphic on my sidebar.  I've got the great Fulton Sheen as part of my header.  That should count for something.  Right?

(You have to vote in each category so if you're not familiar with the names and need a recommendation, let me know and I'll give you a suggestion or two :)  Oh, and you can only vote once!


Thank you and happy Tuesday!



First time here? If you're interested you can get new Better Than Eden posts on Feedly or BlogLovin' and connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  1. Oooo! Congrats, Mary! I didn't notice Better Than Eden on there (probably because I was so overcome to be nominated myself!) Best of luck. I love the look of your blog, it's so refreshing and uncluttered.

  2. Do you know what was fun? In the category I voted for you (I think it was lifestyle or something) I knew a bunch of other blogs, but I was like, 'yeah, hers is totally the best'. :)

    2. Amen. There are so many and I have to restrain myself so often from getting hooked into following all of them or I would never leave my computer! And I have these kids that I'm supposed to be raising and such. Thank you, Theresa :)
