By the way, the grand prize for 2013 is 2,013 cents. Yes, $20.13.
Anyway, this will take a few minutes (less than 5), but hopefully, the following will get you through it as fast as possible. Nominate only once (this is NOT one of those "vote daily" deals).
[BTW, I had trouble getting the email confirmation with Chrome but got it to work with Internet Explorer.]
1. Go to the Bloggies voting site.
You are required to enter 3 unique blogs, so if you do not have other favorites, you can use the recommendations below. You can also enter up to 3 nominees within a category.
2. On the left of the screen, there are the voting categories (in the grey "ribbon" that stays on-screen).
Click on "Pet" category.

4. Go to the bottom of the page.
Type the security words (those wavy words to make sure you are a real person and not a spam machine).
Enter your email address - used for voting verification only.
Click: Submit your nominations!
5. Then later, go to your email and click on the link in the email sent to you by the Bloggies. This completes the nominating process.
If you later decide you want to vote in other categories or for additional blogs within a category, you will invalidate your prior vote, so you should re-enter ALL the blogs you want to vote for. The latest VALIDATED (via email) vote is the one that counts.
This nominating process closes January 15th. Voting will begin about a month later.
If RR makes it, we'll let you know.
