The Homies are a celebration of the richness and awesomeness of shelter bloggers around the world, hosted each year by Apartment Therapy's The Kitchen. Each year they start out by letting readers nominate their favorite home blogs in six categories, then voting commences and the winners are announced.
Winners will receive a $50 cash prize, but according to The Kitchn, "the real prize is lots of traffic". They'll be publishing the six winners in big congratulatory posts across their network on Friday, March 9th. It's a fantastic way to bring a little more attention to the fantastic niche world of home blogging.
We're proud to say that some great TypePad blogs are nominated this year! Check them out below, and vote for your favorites - you might even end up with some new regular reads.
