Update: Nominations have now closed. Please vote for the Best LDS Female Solo Blogger of 2010!

Nominations are open for Best Female LDS Blogger of 2010.

Yes, we're late to the 2010 awards games, but the Grammys were just held last week. (Or some big award show, right? (A woman in the ward called that night and apologized for interrupting if I was watching. I wasn't.)) So here is our first, annual contest. Please nominate bloggers you love — or yourself!

Blogger Criteria

  • Female
  • Writes for a personal blog, not a group blog
  • LDS and identifies as such — not necessarily a Mormon blog, but the person would call themselves LDS if asked
  • Mainstream LDS — yes, it's subjective; don't have to be 100% positive about church stuff all the time, but this isn't about nominating ex-mormons, disgruntled Mormons, or mythological Mormons
  • Began blogging before January 1, 2010
  • Posted at least 12 times in 2010
  • Does not and did not write as a perm for Mormon Momma (no inbreeding, people!) and is not married to someone who writes or wrote as a perm for Mormon Momma
