A proud moment, Hot Blogger Calendar style (plus a contest!) *Updated with winner!*

Remember back in July, when I ran a contest on this blog to determine the Hottest Male Blogger? A title that ended up going to Peter Shankman of HelpAReporter.com (HARO)? (Does this post have a, “This one time? At band camp?” feel to it, or is it me?)

Anyway, during that time I was fortunate enough to meet up with the wonderful Sarah Morgan, who came up with a great idea to build upon the Hottest Male Blogger contest – a Hot Blogger Calendar.

Without ever even meeting, the two of us decided to join forces on the project, even though we knew things would have to move quick. After all, we’d have to come up with a site, get people to nominate and vote for bloggers… and then, you know, create a whole calendar. In 4 months.

But, we did it. With the help of Dawn, who designed the site. And all the people who nominated bloggers. And then voted for the winning bloggers. And the bloggers themselves, many of whom came to the calendar photo shoot in NYC. And the photographers at the photo shoot, Bill Wadman and Meg Wachter (who, by the way, has just released her new book, DUMPED!). And the make-up artist at the shoot, Jillian Villafane. And all the photographers who took photos for the bloggers who couldn’t make it to the shoot. And my parents, who, as always, did so much to help. My dad’s business, Barrington Printing, for helping with the printing. And my amazingly talented Uncle Rick, who designed the calendar. And… OK, this is starting to get as long as the Thank You credits in the calendar itself.

What I’m trying to say is, Sarah and I pulled it off. And, I must say, we (the collective “we”) did an amazing job.

I could not be prouder of the finished products – the Hot Blogger Calendars, one with the 12 Hottest Male Bloggers and one with the 12 Hottest Female Bloggers.

If you’d like to get one (or two, or more…!), you can order through www.HotBloggerCalendar.com. They’re just $12 – and a portion will be going to charity!

That’s hot.

**Congrats to the winner – Kathy P.!**

  1. Congrats on the calendar success. I’m still bummed that Sarah’s not more prominently featured, but there’s always next year…

  2. One of these would be totally amazing! Can I be entered to win one? I’m definitely pulling for the male one.

  3. hahaha.. I’ll take the man one if I win. Hopefully I’ll get to be in next years – keep your eyes open! 😉

  4. I’d want to win the female calendar since they’re mom bloggers, most of which I recognize. I don’t know much about male bloggers so it’d be more fun to support my fellow mommies.

  5. Would love to win the Hot Male Blogger
    calender, kindof as a dig to my husband
    you says “real men don’t blog, whatever
    the heck that is”…yeah, he said the same
    thing about quiche, till I served it to him
    and called it “breakfast pot pie”.

  6. While I’m bummed none of my Hawaii nominees were selected, it would be cool to see the fruits of Sarah and your photographic/editorial labor. Perhaps the boys version? Congratulations on the finished product!!

  7. I’d like to win the female version of the calendar. I probably wouldn’t lose track of the date so often.
