You Can't Always Get What You Want

Yes, it's true.  You can't always get what you want in this life...nope, not even me.  (Shock! ;)

So, despite the fact that many of you answered the call to cast a vote for my blog in The Power of Moms Blog Contest...(THANK YOU, by the way!!!)... I did not make it into the ten selected participants.  

This statement from the Power of Moms website explains how they selected the top ten blogs:

"Thank you for all the wonderful nominations we received for our blog contest.  Wow!  There are a lot of great blogs out there. Based on the number of times a blog was nominated for the contest, we narrowed down the list of almost 100 nominated blogs to the short list of blogs below that meet our criteria. "

It sounds like there were 90 or so pretty great sites that just didn't fit their criteria...I wish they'd publish the complete blog list, because I'd love to read them ALL. can't always get what you want...

Well, as every good loser who fails to advance in the primaries does, I am throwing my full support behind my girl Carrie Stroud, who DID make it into the top ten blogs.  

If you get a second, please hop over there and cast a vote for All That Is Sweet In Life.  She's fourth from the bottom of the list, but she's number one on mine!  Way to go, Carrie!!
(Ok, my pitty-party is now officially over!)


  1. I think YOU have a top 10 blog for sure!

  2. You are TOO much! I think your blog should have been in the top 10 for sure, and frankly, I don't know how in the world mine is deserving of it;) I love ya like I love brownies. Yep..THAT much.

  3. I love you and your blog..THAT'S FOR SURE!

  4. You are a top 10 blog to all of us!

  5. You're definitely a top blog in my own personal opinion. I love your blog and the great ideas and thoughts it offers so eloquently. There's a list of excellent blogs offered on the "Friends" page at Power of Moms and most of those were nominees for the Blog Contest - just FYI if you want to check out great blogs that go beyond the finalists in the contest. Keep up the excellent blogging, Jocelyn, and can we please add you as a "friend" in our "deliberate mothering" blog section on that page?

  6. It's been a few weeks since I've checked in on the blog.  Love the new layout...but will miss the old one.  Change is hard.
    Love ya
