Before I became the Guide to Grandparents on About.com, I was skeptical about virtual friendships. That was before I became acquainted with grandparent bloggers. Yes, you can form real friendships with those that you have never met. You can learn and laugh and cry together. Some say that competition isn't appropriate among the members of such a close-knit community, but I disagree. A friendly competition can only spread the word about grandparent blogs. And since most of us promote and support each other, a win for a fellow blogger is a win for us all.
So, with no further ado, meet the five finalists for Favorite Grandparent Blog for the 2013 Readers' Choice Contest. Then cast your vote.
Here's the nuts-and-bolts of the voting process. You may vote only once in any 24-hour period. In order to vote you'll have to do one of the following:
- Log in through Facebook.
- Log in using your About.com member name.
- Log in using an email address.
You may have to enter a CAPTCHA verification code. This is to prevent robot voting. Voting ends March 19 at midnight EST.
