First, a THANK YOU to BLASTmedia! Mom Generations made its list of the “25 Reasons We Love Social Media.” We love you back just as much! And we are honored to have made your “25 Reasons” List… !
And now to the Manly-Man…
Have you ever been to the blog, The Art of Manliness? If you haven’t – go, go, go. You will not be disappointed! It’s awesome. And right now, they’re running a contest Art of Manliness, Man of the Year 2008.
Come on, ladies. Have you ever wanted to let the whole world know how amazing your husband is? Well, now you can. The Art of Manliness has teamed up with Old Spice to find The Art of Manliness Man of the Year. Most magazines and websites seem to pick celebrities and sports stars as “the man” of the year, and fail to recognize the regular Joe who is doing his best to be the best husband, father, and man he can be. The Art of Manliness wants to change that. (Don’t you just love this!?)
Their goal is to find a man who represents what is best in men and give him $2,000 in cold hard cash. From October 20, 2008 until November 9, 2008, Art of Manliness will be accepting nominations for Man of the Year. This is your chance to brag about your man and give him the chance to win $2,000 (which, of course, he’ll share with you because that’s the kind of man he is). To nominate, go here online form and fill out. You need to write a short essay about why you think your man should be The Art of Manliness Man of the Year. Tell them about how your husband is great with kids, how he can cook a killer dinner, and/or how he helps those in need. If you think your husband possess the traits of honorable manliness, The Art of Manliness wants to hear about him.
They will select 10 finalists from the nominees. On November 24, 2008 voting to the public will open for the 10 finalists. Whomever has the most votes by December 13, 2008 will be crowned The Art of Manliness Man of the Year 2008 and win the $2,000. Plain and simple.
If you want your husband to even have a chance at being named Man of the Year, you have to nominate him! And remember, there’s $2,000 up for grabs! Don’t just stand by your man… brag about him!
