thank you for always making me laugh and for being my healing when life gets difficult. with you fantastic 13 balls of sunshine, these past two years have been much more than just very nice. i’m so proud that i’ve been able to see all of you grow, and just thinking about it causes tears to well up. but, i’ll try to hold these tears in because i don’t wanna cry.
seventeen, i’m glad we’ve made it this far, and i’ll continue to adore u for years to come. let’s keep on walking on this flower path.
hello guys! we, delium (niu), q8a (jas) and juhhyeon (caro) have been wanting to do our own blog awards for a while! as each of us have reached some milestones recently, we wanted to give something back to our followers! so, we’ve collaborated and have created an aquatic-themed award event!

want to discuss your opinions on the tony season? what shows do you love? what shows do you hate?
send me an ask regarding:
shows that’ll do well
shows that’ll do poor
shows you think will win
shows you think will lose
who you want to win
who you want to lose
and anything in between!
this is purely to encourage a health discussion in the fandom, as well as allow people to discuss opinions in a safe place! all asks will be responded to in a polite, considerate way despite whatever my opinion is! feel free to reblog this if you want to encourage discussion on your blog too!
depending on how many ppl enter/how many notes this gets, there’ll be runner-ups for some categories (one winner, two runner-ups most likely). i haven’t decided when this ends, it depends on the response!!
hiii lovelies! a couple of days ago, i reached 1k. i started this blog one month ago today and i never dreamed of ever reaching 1k, much less of reaching it within only a month, and i still kinda can’t believe it to be quite honest. and then yesterday, i reached 1.1k, and now i’m at 1.131k, and i’m pretty much shaking. i’m so incredibly grateful that all you wonderful, kind, lovely people have, for whatever reason, decided you wanted to follow my trash blog, and so i wanted to do my first ever tumblr awards, which i’m hoping as many of you as possible will participate in♥
I’m being 100% serious tho like? If someone who cared about me gave me a colourful little sticker just for being able to pull myself out of bed and face the day at a time I was feeling miserable and down and lethargic about life??? in a genuine effort to encourage and cheer me up??? because they love me?? I would be exponentially more ready to get out of bed in the morning.
It’s a gentle and loving and sympathetic way of acknowledging how difficult it must have been for the person to wake up and face the grossness of the day (whatever their reason for being miserable) while also trying to cheer them up (because tbh who doesn’t love stickers) and? That’s super insightful and thoughtful and important and will probably make the sad person feel really encouraged
In conclusion that’s literally the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard Amy Santiago is an adorably precious genius and #1 girlfriend please protect her at all costs
i can’t believe i actually reached this huge milestone. a third of the way to 10k! thank you so much, everyone, your follows mean the world to me. i’ve always wanted to do blog awards, and now, i think, is the time! the awards are named after some of my succulents.
mbf me, as this is meant for my followers!
must be a studyblr. if your studyblr is a sideblog, put it in the tags.

a follow from me.
a spot on my new “faves” tab on my theme which i’m gonna make.
you can request up to 3 promos whenever you like!
the greatest prize of all, my eternal friendship.
ending date is going to be the 20th of April. and i’m not sure when i’ll get around to doing the awards… i’ll let you know. so yeah! thank you all again :)
We now have our final list of categories which can be seen here.
Rules for Nominations:
One blog can have a maximum of three nominations spanning all categories. So basically if Blog X got nominated for Best Headcanons, Best Art, and Best Edits, and are also nominated for other things, they cannot be voted for the other categories. We want to make this year more inclusive of all PJO/HOO blogs, so we’re limiting the number. note: at the end of the nomination period, the bloggers that are nominated for more than three categories get to choose which three they would like to be considered for.
If a blog, for any reason, wants to be taken down from a nomination, we will go ahead with their request. Everyone is voting for each other for any category, so we want to allow people to be taken down if they want to be!
Categories close out at 26 nominations. While we’d love to include as many bloggers as possible, typeform only allows 26 choices per category, and splitting each category into two voting blocks causes a lot of logistical issues. However, bloggers nominated for a category that is closed will be placed on a waitlist in case any other nominees for that category choose to turn down the nomination for whatever reason. Waitlisted bloggers will be added on a first nominated-first serve basis.
Please be nice!! This is a fun effort by blogs from the fandom, and we want to keep these awards as fun and light-hearted as possible!
Nominating will start now, and go on until December 3. It originally said November 30, but because this started late, we’re extending the date.
I just want to say thank you so much for participating in the blog awards!!! I swear I thought this wasn’t gonna go over well and no one was gonna vote but I actually have a winner for each category!
Also.. All of the categories have one winner besides the “nicest blogger” category just because I felt everyone deserved to win that one. This is my awards so I make the rules and I decided all four blogs should win.
& I will definitely do something like this again in the future!! It was really fun!
a follow from me (if you follow me) eternal friendship a drawing of you and me (made by me, it’ll come) PROMOS !!! (throughout the month) a congratulatory post (that’s this lol) a place on my blog (in winners tab) a place on my blog awards winner page nudes (those will come too) the satisfactory feeling of winning this shit (hope you’re feelin it)
THANK YOU to everyone who participated, you were all worthy winners, and i will make an ‘honorable mentions’ post in a bit!
my next round of blog awards will probs be 2-4 months from now, so keep your eyes open for that if you want in on the goodies :)
