And the Winner for Best New Garden Blog is…
Unfortunately we weren’t able to be there to receive the award in person…but I asked fellow chicken-lover and blogger friend Deb Neyens (Counting My Chickens) to let me know once it was announced. And she did…within seconds…thanks Deb!
Thanks to you too…for voting and for being on this RYG journey with us this past year. It’s been a wild ride…but one we’re so glad to be on. And we’re really looking forward to seeing where 2015 takes us!
I’d also like to take this opportunity to share with you who won the other Hall of Fame Award categories.
Best Overall Garden Blog … Red Dirt Ramblings®
I mentioned Red Dirt Ramblings® (RDR) on a post I did in January. RDR is an outstanding gardening blog and is written by gardener-writer-speaker-blogger extraordinaire Dee Nash…and she has won a ton of blog and writing awards to prove it. Check it out. And if you do…I wouldn’t be surprised if you’ll be inspired by Dee’s beautiful photos and informative posts to get outside very soon to get your hands a little dirty!
Best Writing in a Garden Blog … Mother of a Hubbard
Mother of a Hubbard is written by Cathy Rehmeyer…mother of 2 young girls and medical school professor…yea, she’s just a tad bit smart. Besides providing a wealth of great gardening information and inspiration, Cathy masterfully communicates how what you put into your body affects your body. In particular, given her family’s gluten intolerance, Cathy shares some very tasty gluten-free recipes. So if that’s something your family also has to deal with, you really should check out Mother of a Hubbard.
Best Garden Blog Graphics, Photography, and Presentation … Green Thumb White Apron
Green Thumb White Apron (GTWA) is written by Brett Youmans. Fortunately for us, Brett goes to great lengths to share his love for gardening, cooking, crafting, renovating, and traveling on GTWA. And make no mistake, Brett’s no newbie at any of this – he’s been featured in Better Homes and Gardens and This Old House…and has won cooking contests from literally around the world. As his Hall of Fame Award suggests, GTWA is beautifully branded and features gorgeous pictures…presented in a very crisp and tasteful way. And not only that, he writes in a very conversational manner…while providing incredibly helpful information. Please check out what Brett’s doing on Green Thumb White Apron…you’ll be glad you did.
So there you have it…my fellow Hall of Fame Award garden blog winners. I hope you have the chance to jump on over to their sites…and if you do, that you’ll be inspired and motivated to redeem a little bit of your ground this week.
