I Owe You One

by hookedonhouses on February 7, 2013

Apartment Therapy The Homies AwardsJust wanted to take a moment to thank those of you who nominated Hooked on Houses and voted for it over at Apartment Therapy’s Homies competition for Best Home Design & Inspiration Blog. I know I don’t stand a chance against all those fabulous blogs with hundreds of votes ahead of mine, but it warms my heart that you guys cared enough just to get me on the list with them. You’re the best.

Voting ends Friday, so head over there soon if you want to cast a vote for your favorite blog (it’s okay if it isn’t mine–there are lots of great ones on the list!).


I’m about to launch a weekly newsletter, so I’m looking for a few guinea pigs readers who are willing to subscribe to it. I’m still trying to figure out how it all works so you’d be my beta testers while I work out the kinks.

My plan is to cover the “house highlights” from each week so you never miss anything. Don’t worry, if you hate it you can unsubscribe at any time and my feelings won’t be (too) hurt. Ha. All I need is your email address below, and after you click to confirm that you really, truly want my newsletters, you’ll get the first issue soon.

I truly appreciate all of you who stop by each week, leave comments, send me hot tips about great houses, and chat with me on Facebook (I’m on Google+ now if you want to join me there, too!). You guys are the best. Thanks!

I am new here but it didn’t take me any time to be convinced to give you the vote in this category. Easy decision.

That’s so nice–thanks, Cheryl! :)

Love the idea of the contest and some incredible entrants, but the name, The Homies, really? I thought it was a joke at first. Of all the names I could think of for this award, that would not be one of them. :-)

Nonetheless, good luck. I didn’t vote, only because I am loathe to register to do something like that, but I still plan to get my daily dose of HOH, if that’s okay!

Yeah, the name is a little silly, isn’t it? Ha. No problem if you don’t want to register to vote or if some of you vote for other blogs. I’m just happy you’re reading mine! :-)

Just voted for you!! Yours is the one blog I read consistently in my time crunched world. And I THOUGHT I signed up for your newsletter the other day, but I could be remembering wrong in my old age…

hookedonhouses February 8, 2013 at 8:11 am

Thanks, Kelly! I’m glad I’m not the only one who sometimes thinks she does things but then isn’t sure if I just THOUGHT about doing something or if I actually did it. Ha.
