Yes, and I have nominated KP about 40 times for every category!

That is a tough one 🙂 There are quite a few bloggers out there who satisfy both, I think.

Colleen, I’ve always been disappointed that the Webbie Award creators didn’t see fit to give Gardening its own category, so I’m glad to see you’ve picked up the slack. I plan on considering my nominations very carefully. Hmm . . . who would I want for a gardening neighbor, the nicest blogger or the one with the best plants to swap with?

Kathy, thank you for plugging the Mouse & Trowels. Yours is such a highly respected blog, I’m sure you’ll generate plenty of interest for the awards. I’m looking forward to seeing your nominations!!

Thanks again 🙂
