2017 has been a great year for us doll lovers, a lot of people have joined the AG WordPress Blogging family, and while many have left us, quite a few are still making good quality posts.
This is your host, the beautiful Paisley Penelope Parker of the Agdollawesome blog!
Hello and Welcome, to the 2017 Paisley Awards!
Why You Are Seeing This:
We see so many doll blogging awards with the same old winners. People win 5 awards, and they always win every award show. The very creators of the awards even win awards! And it’s a hassle to vote and nominate, it takes 30 minutes to fill out a huge form with 70 possible categories, yet only 7 people win awards. We didn’t think this was fair, and just to be clear, no shade to anyone who does this, it’s just our opinion. 🙂
What this is:
We dollies brainstormed, and we came up with this awesome thing called…. The Paisley Awards!
This is an award show for ALL doll bloggers. Last year we only did WP doll bloggers, but we are expanding this year to make it fair for all. We can’t win, only the people who should win can…. YOU! And
- Only 6 important categories
- REAL physical prizes
- Just easiness all around!
-Best AG doll blog overall
-Best AG doll photography
-Best AG doll photo stories
-Best AG doll photo series
-Best dressed AG doll blogging family
–Best AG blog started in 2017
