Did anyone notice that big red button on the right hand side of the screen that says, “I’m a Nominee!!”? No??? Yeah, guess I should have blogged about it. I announced it on facebook. Then voting started yesterday and again, I announced it on Facebook. Um……..DUH MrsTDJ!!! I gave myself a wicked eye roll for not announcing ON THE BLOG that THE BLOG had been nominated for a BLOG award. Feel free to laugh. I did.
Thank you to whom ever nominated my blog for a Black Weblog Award in the category of “Best Writing in a Blog”. Wow. Best Writing in a Blog? Geez. So, the ballots went live yesterday and I’m on it. Yippee!!! I’m super excited and super honest – I’d love to win! This would be something that would really make ya girl smile. I write for me, but I do hit the publish button. I write because I need to get things out and I think that my voice should be heard. A great writing instructor shared a quotation with me over the summer that resonated so deeply. “The job of the writer is to comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable.” Ah ha! I believe that I’m working toward fulfilling my purpose.
I try not to ask you guys for too much, but I’m gonna surely ask for this. I need your help to win this thing. I need you to vote for me, once every 24 hours, between now and September 26 so that I can make the 2nd round of voting. Then I’ll bug you again for your votes so that I can win the whole damn thing. My category, Best Writing in a Blog, is allllllllllll the way at the bottom. It’s actually the very last category. Keep scrolling and you’ll find it. Vote because I asked. Vote because you can. Vote because you like my writing. Vote because you’re at the computer and it doesn’t take long. Vote because you think I need a solo trip to Houston. And if you are so inclined, you can forward this here to post to everyone you’ve ever met so they can vote too. ***Too much????***
