Blog of the Year Award 2013

One of the things I love best about the end of the year is all of the Best of designations, Year in Reviews, Top 10 lists, etc. (The year that ESPN showed the Best Sportscenter Commercials was at the top of my list.)

So you can imagine how thrilled we were at CCC when The Journal of Wall Grimm decided to designate this blog as a winner of the Blog of the Year Award for 2013. How exciting! It’s the blog’s first award, and along with the thoughtful comments, likes and visits, encourages us to continue down this long, strange road we’re traveling.

Blog of the Year Award

As a recipient of this award, CCC has the responsibility of passing it along to the blog(s) that we feel deserve special recognition. We follow some insightful blogs from a variety of people, so this was a decision we really had to think about. Without further ado, I present to you our 2013 Blog of the Year winners… (drumroll please)

101 Books

Robert Bruce is reading his way through Time Magazine’s 100 greatest novels and taking us along for the ride. As a fellow writer and fervent reader, I appreciate his honest commentary and insight into each of his selections. It really helps me decide what — and what not — to add to my lengthy, always-growing reading list. For unbiased book reviews, insight on writing and a fun mailbag feature (where he answers readers’s questions), follow 101 Books.

Ahh The Simple Life

Carol and Michelle are sisters who value the Simple Life and want to help you shed the complicated nature of today’s world. They share insights on food, decorating, stress relief and living more simply, while actually enjoying day-in, day-out living. Looking for a scrumptious, healthy recipe? Trying to figure out how to have fun on a budget? Head to Ahh The Simple Life to start feeling better and getting more out of your life.

Bucket List Publications

Some people make a bucket list when they’re dying; Lesley Carter makes one to live life to the fullest. She’s packed more into her years than people who have been around three times as long. Rock climbing? Paragliding? Dog sledding? Check. Check. Check. Lesley’s been to 34 countries and has no plans on slowing down. Follow along on her world tour as she seeks new adventures and works toward completing her annual bucket list at Bucket List Publications.

About Jaime Shine

I love to write. While most kids were playing with blocks or dolls, I was publishing magazines and newspapers – feature articles, ads, sports box scores, the whole nine yards. From promotions director to advertising roles to branding projects, I’ve always been interested in all forms of marketing. That interest blossomed into a career path and led me to open my own business, which has always been a dream of mine. And I’d love to work my magic for you. Check out my company's services, discover more about me or chime in on my blog, covering a variety of topics, at http://jaimeshine.com.
