Not sure if you recall, but a couple months ago there was an election. None other than rapper P. Diddy had his own campaign slogan, the subtly titled: "Vote or Die." (just realized that was in 2004 - but for purposes of this post, let's pretend it happened in '08)
There is another election in the works and since I've discovered that bloggers are some of the most shameless self-promoters out there, I hate to be left behind when it comes to said shameless self-promotion.
The election I am referring to is the 2009 Bloggie Awards (official name: Ninth Annual Weblog Awards). Since this election isn't as monumental as the one we had in November, voting in lieu of dying isn't necessary. However, I am humbly asking you to vote for me and and two other bloggers whom I greatly admire.
Here's how it works. Please go to this site (by tomorrow) and consider voting for us in the categories of "Best Writing of Weblog," "Best-Kept Secret Weblog" and mine qualifies for "Best New Weblog" as well.
You will be required to vote for 3 blogs. Here's the trifecta I propose:
(1) Mad Asthmatic and her blog www.rustzeb.blogspot.com where she, the proper British blogger, pontificates on such matters as mince pies, parties and other proper British things. She has made more mince pies this past month than I have made and eaten in my entire lifetime. MA puts the "F" in Festive.
(2) Lisa (aka Blue State Cowgirl) from www.leftcoastcowboys.com. If MA puts the "F" in Festive, Blue State puts the "T" in "Telling it like it is." She is an incredibly quick thinker, as well as a farmer, rancher, gardener and vinter. Hope I am not leaving anything out. Her site also features photos of her adorable terriers, beautiful baby photos and mountain ranges "sans cheese balls."
(3) www.CarmaSez.blogspot.com, because I "Sez" so. (I mean "hope" so - *fingers crossed, fingers crossed*).....and if I get a "Bloggie" I will have so much to live up to that you will get incredibly thought out and well-written blog posts hereon out, as opposed to sophomoric humor involving photoshopping my husband's head onto a "Gelt." It's definitely worth it on your behalf.
My son in his infinite wisdom just pointed out that I should not post this because it is like asking for subscribers on YouTube and that he hates it when people say, "you sub me; I sub you," etc. I explained that we bloggers commonly resort to tactics such as these and that it is very classy, unlike the pandering on YouTube....
Where was I. Right. Please vote for us. And remember to confirm your ballot when you get the confirmation email. (This is the only email you will get. No mailing lists involved- completely harmless- and that's a Carma Sez Promise!)
Thank you for your time :D Sophomoric posts involving butts and toilets will continue tomorrow....and I wish I was kidding!
