This year, I’ve made two nominations that I’m incredibly proud to share with you, the readers. I hope that you’ll find that you feel the same way and will also head over and nominate these amazing bloggers!
First of all, I’ve nominated Megan from The Nerdy Girlie! She’s an incredible source of information for SDCC, I love her everyday cosplay posts and she’s just an all around incredible young woman. I truly hope I get to meet her one day! She’s such a sweetheart to everyone and this is something I feel she really deserves.
To nominate Megan, go here and tweet a reason why you think she deserves a shorty award!
I also nominated Tony Kim from Crazy4ComicCon! Tony has so much knowledge about not only SDCC but other cons around the country. He’s officially one of my SDCC gurus and was instrumental in me having such a great time at SDCC ’13 which was my first time at the con! His writing really hooks you and he has so many wonderful topics on his blog. He’s great with his followers, he’s so kind and just an all around amazing young man. Meeting the fantastic Tony Kim is one of my goals for SDCC if I attend this year! I truly believe that he is so deserving of a shorty award!

Good luck to both Tony and Megan! Thank you for what you do and just know that you really do mean a lot to your readers! You two are incredible and I look forward to continuing to follow all your adventures through your blogs and your tweets!
