Show Some Love
I’m not one for self-promotion, unless I’m in a cut-throat interview or jokingly discussing what I’d put in an online dating profile. But I’ve been prompted by outside influences to bite the bullet and ask for some love from my audience of cooking compatriots.
There are currently two blog award contests running, one about to end in 24 hours, and one that’s been quietly ongoing and will continue for several months.
The 2008 Weblog Awards, or “Bloggies” as they’re affectionately called, are currently open for votes, but only until 10 p.m. tomorrow (Friday). It’s a little involved, but I’d be ever so grateful if you’d follow this link to fill in at least two categories for me: “best new weblog” and “best kept-secret weblog.” What, you ask?! No vote for best food blog?! I know I’m not ready to take on the big dogs (just yet). But while you’re there, consider voting for Smitten Kitchen, the Traveler’s Lunchbox, and Simply Recipes, three of my personal favorites. I have no problem promoting others, you see! Oh, one little rule to be aware of: you have to fill in three nominees for the category before you can submit your form. This doesn’t mean you have to fill in all the categories. Just be sure to have two others in mind when you cast your vote for me. You will vote, won’t you?
The second contest, the 2008 Blogger’s Choice Awards, has been chugging along since the 2007 contest was finalized. Unlike the Bloggies, you can vote with just a click (and a quick registration process to ensure no one’s stuffing the ballot box). Just scroll down to the bottom of this page until you see the button on the right hand side. Click and follow the prompts as they come.
