Rocking the Vote and (MOSTLY) a Shameless Plug

So today is Rock the Vote Day here in Illinois. It’s the primaries, and we all know how I feel about rocking the vote. So I’ll be heading to my polling place after work today, because I think the primaries are important too.

Of course, I couldn’t let the rock the vote opportunity just fade away when you, too, can rock a vote.

On that note, blog friends…I have to tell you something RIDICULOUSLY exciting…I haven’t mentioned it yet, and I feel kinda like a jerk for not telling you, because it’s a result of your awesomeness…

I’m a finalist in not one, not two, but THREE categories in The 2014 Weblog Awards. Best Writing, Most Humorous, and Weblog of the Year.

Last year, I was a finalist in Best Writing of a Weblog. And THE BLOGGESS offered to share her invisible trophy with me.

I would LOVE for you to go and take a second to vote for me in the 2014 Bloggies. Several of my blogging besties have also been nominated, so if you would like to help them out with a vote, I know they’d appreciate it too!

Voting ends this weekend, so vote early, vote often!

Hey! Did you know you can buy my book on Amazon? 37 women wrote about the struggle for perfection, and I'm one of 'em. Go check it out!

The Oscars,The Bloggies, and Me

What? Posting non-news on a Sunday (when I haven’t even posted news in months)? Yep. Because I’m something of a attention whore, I’ve decided to get all dolled up for you. Well, you and I’m getting ready for my acceptance speech to the little people.

Tonight is the night of the Academy Awards and I can’t think of a better reason to put on my Sunday’s best and head to Sears….erm…get super dressed up. Except that yes, I can think of a better reason. I’ve been nominated and <holy shitballs>, I’m a finalist in the 2013 Bloggies for Best Writing of a Weblog. Now, I’m competing with my best friend AND The Bloggess…so I mean…it’s not going to be easy…I may only have a Snowball’s shot in Hell…but I thought I should be prepared. So today…today is red carpet day.

2013 Bloggies!

Chrissy of Quirky Chrissy and Katie of Words for Worms (rivals in this month’s competition) pose with some of their girlfriends at yet another pre-party. (Just because this pre-party happened 9 years ago, long before Quirky Chrissy was a thought in her head means NOTHING. Or everything. One of those.

So go take a little time and vote for me (AND MY FRIENDS) in the 2013 Weblog Awards. Because SOMEONE needs to give The Bloggess a run for her money!
