So, this is very nice to hear: Evidently, 7-Imp was selected by a panel of judges to be on the shortlist for a Book Blogger Appreciation Week award in the category of Best Kidlit Blog. This seems to be the place where we are supposed to direct you if you’d like to vote for winners in any category. And whoa: It’s terrifically flattering to be in the company of the other nominees in our category: A Fuse #8 Production, Jen Robinson’s Book Page, Maw Books Blog, and Shelf Elf: read, write, rave. I mean, really. How can you pick from all those folks? Wow.

Thanks to …er, whoever nominated this site. Not sure how this works. But it’s flattering. Very. Thank you from 7-Imp.

Now, don’t miss my (Jules’, that is) interview below with Marla and Liz! Bring your plate: There will be pancakes.

  1. Congratulations, 7-Imp! Of course you guys are one of the nominees for Best Kidlit Blog. One great big DUH. :o) :o) :o)

  2. Saw that yesterday and voted for you already. 🙂

  3. Well, um, of COURSE!?!??!??!

  4. Congrats! And seriously, how do you think I feel in the company of such awesome bloggers as yourself? My nomination is almost making me feel like a fraud! LOL

  5. Congratulations! Kind of a no-brainer, though, as Tarie said. 🙂

  6. Congrats on being shortlisted!! Well deserved, indeed. 🙂

  7. Congratulations! Now I’m going to go make pancakes for dinner.

  8. Congrats!

  9. I must admit that I’ve always been intimated with how incredibly awesome your blog is, so I’m dumbfounded that I’m on the same list as you! Congrats!

  10. Totally not surprised. 🙂


  11. Hello,
    I’m new to your blog, but found it because it has been shortlisted for a BBAW award. I love the look and feel of your site, and am now off to explore more in it. I’ve just started reviewing kids books (and writing about the play they inspire in me and my kids) so I’m sure I’ll learn something from you here.

  12. Thanks, Zoe. Enjoy the blog!

    Thanks, everyone, for the nice wishes.


    Although, seriously, how does one vote in that category? Everyone is so full of awesome.

  14. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
