The 2015 Best of the Guest Blog Awards and Voter Giveaway Rules and Regulations

Welcome to DQM's very first 

Best of the Guest Blog Awards!

This week marks a very special 1-year Blogiversary for A Day in the Life of a Drama Queen's Momma! I would have never gotten this far without ALL of you, my awesome readers and a few really great bloggers who offered to write guest posts for me when I was too busy to keep you all entertained. SO A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!

As a reward for lending me their awesome writing skills (and keeping you guys laughing), I am announcing the very 1st Best of the Guest Blog Awards where my amazing guest bloggers have a chance to win a cool prize based on YOUR votes!

Here's how it works: Read these amazing posts (links below). Comment on them. Share them. Vote on your favorite using the Raffle below (and get yourself entered in the contest to win an awesome prize package at the same time!) 

The categories up for grabs this year are:

Pimped Out- The winner of this category is the blogger whose piece is passed around the most.. So if you have a favorite piece...Share, share, share it via Facebook, Twitter, and/or Pinterest. (Each social media share counts as one vote and will be counted using my "Share This" tools at the end of each blog post.)

Comment Queen- The winner of this category is the blogger that can keep the conversation flowing. Be sure to leave comments on the pieces that you enjoy the most to give the blogger a chance at this award. All comments count as long as they are valid conversation (not just a word or nonsense). Response comments from the blogger count as one vote per conversation.

Little Miss Popular- The winner of this category has a post with a far reach. This award will be given out based on overall page views taken from Google Analytics stats. Sharing will help a blogger achieve more views.

**These first 3 awards will be tallied from the date the post was PUBLISHED until now. Even though some posts have been around longer, the page views are pretty equal starting out. 
(Bloggers: If you desire to know your rank to begin with, please message me.)

**The winner of these 3 awards will receive an exclusive (and awesome because I made it) button for their blog sidebar and bragging rights.

And the most coveted award (or at least it should be) is the

Guest Post of the Year- This is a people's choice award, based on votes. Votes are achieved through the Rafflecopter giveaway below. Clicks on entries for the blog Facebook page DO NOT count as votes (but they DO enter you in the giveaway!) Only clicks on the actual VOTE button for the blogger/piece will be counted towards this award. You are welcome to vote on as many pieces as you wish. Votes count once per day and earn you more chances to win the awesome giveaway prize!

**The winner of Guest Post of the Year will also receive an exclusive side-bar button AND a $10 Starbucks gift card.

The voters (that's YOU!) will have the chance to win this incredible prize pack, including:

* A copy of  the book "I Still Just Want To Pee Alone" signed by multiple authors, including the amazing editor, Jenn Mann of People I Want to Punch in the Throat and filled with awesome bookmarks and trinkets from the authors.

* Brennan's favorite candy (gummy bears) sent all the way from Canada via the amazing Brooke from

*A set of Brennan Quotes note cards w/ envelopes handmade by yours truly and personally signed by Brennan.

**These awards are just for fun. The author of the winning post (Guest Post of the Year) will receive a $10 Starbucks gift card. The winner of the raffle giveaway will win the prize package stated in the raffle. This contest is limited to the continental US only, due to shipping costs. Blogger Nominees are not eligible for the raffle giveaway prize, but may vote on their own piece daily, as per voting rules. The prize winner will be announced on this blog post and my Facebook page (A Day in the Life of a Drama Queen's Momma) on Tuesday, June 2. The winner will have 24 hours to respond and message me their address before a new winner will be chosen. The prize package will be mailed out within a week of receiving the address of the winner. DQM is not responsible for prize packages that are lost in the mail or returned for incorrect address information.
