Members of the AOL-J Academy, I submit the following Journals for your consideration in the following categories of the 2004 AOL-J Awards. Remember to vote by Thursday! [link below]
BEST J-BRAT ON THE BLOCK
The Daily Blog
Andrew and I 'met' way back when we were both newbies to AOL-J.
This kid has got it going on! He's intelligent, witty, funny and very computer
savvy. He does all of his own troubleshooting and if he can't figure it out, he
knows who to ask. If you haven't been to his journal - which has been through a
few incarnations as he grows - please be sure to check him out. He is my
hands-down nomination in this category.
THE J-TEEN SUPREME
Michael writes from the depths of his soul. He holds nothing back
and leaves us all thinking outside the box. It's tough being a teen in today's
world. His journal, his thoughts, are all windows into the life of a teen
today. The tragedies, the questions, the wonders, the excitement ... all of
it. No question about it - he's the #1 Teen on the Scene in my
I love Gigi so much that I could see myself nominating her in
every single category! But since we're trying to spread the love, I'm choosing
this category because she is a unique work of art. The way she expresses
herself through her words and her original comics is extraordinary. I'm in awe
of her endless creative talent. She's had me laughing, crying, screaming and
cheering all in one entry. Besides, did you see that comic she made of
me-n-Hunny? She's my idol!
THE GREATEST STORIES EVER
The Peach Pages
Peachy tells it like it is,with flair and a little bit of spice.
How many of us have cheered her boys in baseball? Or sobbed with her about a
neglected child? Or shivered over a scurrying scorpion loose in the house? She
takes us on a wild ride in every entry. Peachy makes reading fun. And you know
it's a big deal for this 'non-reader' to say that.
The Single Woman's Guide to the
Find out what men and women REALLY want. Or what NOT to do on a
date. And how NOT to market yourself in an online dating service. Shoot for
the stars and survive heartbreak with NuttyNikki and her witty antics. Some are
so bizarre they almost seem unreal. She speaks for all of us.
LADY OF THE
This one is easy for me. I think Andrea would rather be nominated
in THE MOST LOL MOMENTS IN ONE BLOG category - which she deserves as
well. But she's certainly a daily must-read for many of us. When she updates,
I rush to her Journal to get caught up. She writes quality craptastic material.
[her word, not mine.] And she appreciates her readers. She also spearheaded
the What If online writer's support group...while writing her novel. Hello?
Can you say OVERACHIEVER? Oh yes, I bow to the Lady of the Blog.
THE ROOTIE TOOTIE FRESH 'N FRUTIE
Newbies step forward! Since Danielle was bold enough to leave her
link for consideration, I'm giving back to this newbie member of our community
by nominating her in this category. She's got animation, photos, linkage and
she's all about AOL-J right now. Lots of enthusiasm...cheerleader-style. I'm
looking forward to seeing her grow in this community. Welcome to AOL-J
Help Help Help!!! I'm looking for
a place tonominate some of my other favorites! - Ha! I just started listing
