Pawsitively Pets Nominated as a Petties 2014 Finalist

Last night, I got word that Pawsitively Pets is a finalist for the 2014 Petties Pet Blog Awards. I can't begin to tell you just how thrilled and excited I am to be a finalist in not just one category, but two categories! My blog is nominated along with some other really amazing blogs.


These nominations for Pawsitively Pets do not come without some drama, however. You see at first, Pawsitively Pets was not on the list. Apparently, there was an error and finalist ballots were incorrect. After the error was noticed, voting was closed and the finalist list was revised. I feel horrible to see a few pet blogs no longer on the list that I had been rooting for... and I'm happy to see at least one blog now on the list that I had been nominating. Honestly, I am just not sure what to say about how this all unfolded.

Nonetheless, I am now nominated for "Best Overall Pet Blog" and "Best Designed Blog". I am very excited to be in the Best Overall Pet Blog category. I feel that Pawsitively Pets really fits the category description:


"A blog that showcases all that is pets and offers readers a little bit of everything on our furry friends."

This is the category I had initially hoped to be nominated for.

What came as the biggest surprise to me is Pawsitively Pets' nomination for "Best Designed Blog". I mean, I guess it shouldn't surprise me too much since my header was created by the wonderful Glogirly, after all. I even nominated her own blog for Best Designed Blog. So a big thanks to Glogirly for helping me create the perfect look for my blog.

And a big thanks to those of you who nominated Pawsitively Pets - I really appreciate it! The best part is that we will receive a $1000 donation to the animal shelter or rescue of our choice if we win. Right now, I'm thinking about the organization I would support if I were to win, and I have some ideas.

  3. Congrats on your nomination and we voted earlier. I was shocked to see my other blog in there since we didn't get an email or any notice.

    1. I got a very generic email so I was surprised to. I didn't get one telling me I was finalist, but that they had changed. I'll be voting for Forever Home Wanted! I had been nominating you for that category.

    So well-deserved. It's unfortunate that the Petties created so much drama, but we're really thrilled for you!

  7. Strange, very strange all that Petties Award mess : it’s sad, because it doesn’t look much like a credible award anymore for this year. They could have apologize, whatever is the reason of this disorder, concerned bloggers would have been less disappointed with it. We’re glad you don’t belong to that unfortunate group ! Concatulations ! We wish you all the best ! Purrs

    1. I agree that this is going to have some sort of effect on the award's credibility... it is quite sad for those. They did offer an apology on Facebook, but nothing really personal to the bloggers affected. Or perhaps sent out a warning before this announcement.

  12. Miss Ann, I am SO glad you made it into the "Best Overall Pet Blog" category! I have been nominating you for that since LAST year's Petties!! You are absolutely the BEST overall pet blog in my book! We enjoy coming here and reading all your great posts...even the ones on pet rats (you know how Ma is a little freaked out by rats). I will be voting for you and I HOPE you WIN!
