Admittedly, I did a little P.R. work for myself yesterday. As I was reading one of my new favorite blogs, 20 Prospect, I stumbled across a badge of his:
Intrigued, I clicked on the link and found myself at the Blogger’s Choice Awards.I began to browse the site, and realized that the good people at the B.C.A.s host an open-voting competition to filter out the true blogging gems from the rest of the rabble.
Anyone can vote, for any blog, at any time. You are restricted to one vote per blog, but you get an unlimited number of votes. Like a site you see? Send them a vote. Like their design? Send them a vote. Cast as many votes as you wish!
Seeing that Oprah was not about to nominate my blog anytime soon, I did a little shameless self-promotion and entered my blog in 3 categories: Best Humor Blog, Best Pop Culture Blog , and Best Blog About Stuff. You can click on any of these categories and choose to send a little voting love my way. And, you can also check out some other blogs in these categories as well! It’s a great networking tool!
I’m not sure what the winners receive, but I’m sure it’s something like the Holy Grail, Tom Hanks’ toupee, and the original painting of the Mona Lisa…I think…
And while you’re at it, why don’t you vote for 20 Prospect in the Hottest Daddy Blogger category? I stumbled onto his site while reading one of my current subscriptions, and any guy who gives out Unicorns Humping Leg Lamp Awards is a-okay in my book.
I’m just discovering the in’s and out’s of his blog, but he recently published a beautifully written post on love, loss, and everything in between. I was so moved by his writing that I absolutely had to feature him during my Friday post. Suffice it to say, I had to break out the tissue box, AND the Swiss chocolates to recover.
So, strap on your hiking gear, dear readers! For What the #FF?!? Friday, we’re taking a field trip over to 20 Prospect’s blog and reading his article “Bridgeport Ferry.” I hope you’ve turned in all your permission slips…last one to the bus is a moldy tub of Cool Whip!
