Nominations are CLOSED for the 2014 Sheenazing Awards

I am no longer taking nominations for the second annual Sheenazing Awards.

Thank you to everyone who nominated your favorite blogs and bloggers! This year there were two times as many nominations as last year, which is so cool!

Voting for the Sheenazing Awards will begin mid-week.

Well folks, here it is: the nomination form for the second annual Sheenazing Awards!

The Sheenazing Blogger Awards are named for Venerable Fulton J. Sheen. Sheen was amazing at using the newest forms of media to communicate the beauty of the Catholic Church and his love of Christ to the world. I'm positive that Sheen would be a blogger were he alive today and that he is in Heaven, totally approving of this award.

The Rules:
1 - Nominations will only be taken for blogs written by Catholics who are faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church and believe that Pope Francis is the true pope. Bloggers currently enrolled in RCIA are also eligible. The "Best Blog by a Non Papist" category is exempt from this rule.
2 - Nominations should include the blog title and URL if the title and address are not the same.
3 - You can nominate up to two (2) blogs in each category but you don't have to nominate any if you are unfamiliar with a certain category.
4 - You can nominate yourself - no one but you and God will know.
5 - This is for fun, so have fun!

I'll gather nominations through Friday. Over the weekend I will share with the bloggers that they have been nominated and official voting will then begin on Monday, the 20th . Each nominee will be provided with the following button to remind their readers to vote.


The winners will earn a firm virtual handshake, the pride in knowing that they've been named the Best of something by a fairly obscure blog, and the right to display the following on their site:


So go nominate the Coolest Blogger, the Smartest Blog, the Funniest Blog, and so on!

  1. Yay! Question: Is there a way to know how many followers a blog has if they're Wordpress or don't have the widget displayed?

    1. That's a good question and I have no idea what the answer is but if they are on Bloglovin' or something like that you could see how many followers they have there. It's not an exact science but these are just for fun so we'll just do the best we can. :)

    1. That should be "sheenazing". I'm on my husband's MacBook and it is auto-correcting like mad.

  14. So, I just submitted the form, with two blogs listed in some of the spaces. Then I realized maybe I should have submitted the form twice, instead. Should I do it over?

  16. Thanks for doing these awards again, Bonnie. Question: on best by a non-papist, are we talking *any* blog or mom blogs or ... just checking! I don't want to be the only silly person nominating a food blog or something. :)

    1. Any blog of any genre will work. Thanks for asking!

      And maybe I should add a Creative Bog category next year for all the craft and cooking and decorating blogs... Or maybe that's too broad? Hmmmm.... I'll take feedback on this.

  18. Oh, dear. I just see this now, and all I can think of is that Sheenazing is a lovely name for a baby girl. But I guess we'd hafta pronounce it SHEEna-zing. Like the singer. This all looks too great! thank you mucho for your creative spirit.

  19. Interesting write-up! Writing is an art form that reaches a multitude of people from all walks of life, different cultures, and age group. As a writer, it is not about what you want.free idioms
