We wanted to give you an update on the Wheaties and Tarefic Awards!  Please spread the word about nominations.  Last year we had a 3 week nomination period, and still some blogs didn’t get the word in time.

As you can see, we are short on nominations for a few categories.  Feel free to continue nominations for another week!  Here are the nominations so far, and you can check out the links so you can be an informed voter. If you have a link to add, please let us know, and put it in brackets to avoid our spam catcher.  And don’t forget that Main Street Plaza is hosting their Brodie Awards too.
