This summer, my dear friend Rys from Confessions of a Clutter Queen came to me with an idea of how to recognize these courageous bloggers. We started bouncing ideas around and The Brass Balls Award was born. Since this award would recognize "an exemplary post that took an amazing amount of guts to not only type out but put out there for the world to see", we decided we needed a few things. One, we needed someone else to help us with the selection. We didn't want this to be just two friends making a decision by themselves. So, we recruited Aunt Becky from Mommy Wants Vodka to join our endeavor. Two, we decided this award needed to be more than just bloggy bling. There needed to be a physical award. Sure, there will be bloggy bling but there will also be a piece of bling created by yours truly. This bling can either be worn as a necklace pendant or used however the recipient wants.
*Thanks go to Rys for the rockin' title. I couldn't resist using it.
