Call me narcissist if you must but this blog is all about ME. I have another blog about my kids, whom I love and adore writing about. But I was Nicole a long time before I was mom and I don't intend to give up being Nicole overnight.
You can read all about my kids at Naptime Optional.
Or you can follow along on our Arizona adventure on my 365 project blog.

Excited with a side of skepticism
A few days later I got yet another email requesting that I promote a website and this time I didn't let it go quite so much to my head.
So you can imagine the skepticism I felt when I received the following comment on my blog.
Your blog has been nominated for the 2009 Utah Baby Guide Blog Contest. The blog that gets the most votes wins! Voting ends June 30th, 2009.
Congratulations! You have a great blog!
Utah Baby Guide
Especially since I've had spam comments in the past. (before turning on word verification) Comments that served no other purpose than to get you to click over to somebody's insurance site.
My suspicion was furthered by the fact that my other blog also got the same comment. And when I've been spammed in the past both blogs got hit.
But finally my big head telling me "this one might actually be for real" got the best of me and I clicked to it.
It does look like a legitimate site. I think. And my Sister-in-law's two blogs are nominated in different categories which leads me to believe that maybe she nominated me (Thanks if you did!!!!) Or maybe she didn't. Who knows.
Her blog Orange World is nominated in the Discount/Giveaway Blog category. And her blog Orange You Special is nominated in the Product Blog category.
And so this is the part where I shamelessly beg for your vote. Because hey, it would be cool to win something! Plus you don't even have to register. Simply email email@example.com and tell us the web address of your favorite blog for each category before June 30, 2009.
This blog is nominated in the Personal Blog category, right beneath Dooce. Yea right, like I'll win. But hey, it's a nice thought, right?
My other blog is nominated in the Funny Blogs category.
And I guess it would be nice if I told you their website. Because that's what a courteous blogger does, right?
So you can visit the Utah Baby Guide at, surprisingly enough, http://www.utahbabyguide.com/
I'll stop begging now. Since it's likely all really a hoax anyway. Thanks.
