The 2013 Brodie Awards!

Every year Main Street Plaza hosts the Brodie Awards in recognition of LDS-themed blogs and books. It's a great opportunity for the greater Mormon community to come together each year, to read each other's writing, and also boost each other's stats. :) For that last reason alone, it is truly an honor just to be nominated--even if you nominate yourself! Which, of course, I did--and likewise encourage my gentle readers to do the same. Nominations are open through Thursday, January 30. Here are my nominees so far. I hope to add more.
