Please Vote for "Best Blog About Stuff!"

Best Stuff, lol?

C O N T E S T — My very loyal reader, Artichoke Annie, has nominated my blog for a blogger's award!! I'm in the category for "Best Blog About Stuff" and I probably couldn't have picked a better category if I named it myself. Wouldn't this be exciting to win something for all of us? : )

All you have to do is click on the link in this post, or just to the right of the main column of this blog. I moved my Flickr album down for the next couple of weeks, or whenever the voting is over. You'll have to register with a username and password, and then confirm in your email, but it only took me about 30 seconds to type in the information and receive the confirmation. I'm pretty sure you can only vote once, so this is no American Idol or Dancing with the Stars, not that I could count on Bristol's fans to megavote for me anyway, lol.

Thanks in advance!

  2. ....and one more vote for you Casey ..from me ! Holy stinkin' cow, it took something like 1/2 hour to get it accomplished. I think it might be a tired brain more than a poor layout on their part. :)
    I put up the link on my blog (I mean afterall, I have like 5 hits a day and all people that come here too lol, but I can always hope someone will stray in and pick up on it!
    Seems like April or so when I stumbled upon your blog...has it grown a lot since then? I've thoroughly enjoyed it since day one...thank you again so much!

  3. Thanks, Mare. Yes, it has grown incredibly since April. When my first anniversary comes up on Feb 19th, I'll probably put up a graphic of the year's hits and page loads. I'm really proud of it, showing solid growth every month. I mean, it's all academic, but it's a really fun project. It took me six months to get to 10,000 hits and last month alone I had about 11,300, and it's up for January, so far. I jinx everything I do eventually, lol.

  7. Casey, I wonder what you have to do to get a screen shot of your blog next to the award nomination? Is there something that has to be done or is it automatic? I may have missed a step. Check it out please when you have a minute. Thanks. I'm so excited I am all a twitter. lol And the year has just begun.

  8. When I "claimed" my blog, via a link, there was a space for comments/corrections, and I asked them how I could get a snapshot of the site there. Hope they answer! It has been a hubbub of activity here since you first alerted me! I've been sending out tons of emails and posts at a few choice blogs, lol. I just did a shot of tequila to calm down. : ) what a fun night!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I played around with my profile there and somehow the snapshot of my site appeared. yay!

  19. I casted my vote! And it is funny that I didn't even know about an actual nomination site when mentioning via e-mail that this site should get an award!

    Congrats!

  20. Thank you Woody! I really have some good friends here.

  21. When you mentioned it Woody it reminded me of Rosie talking onetime about being nominated for a blogger award and she was so thrilled. So I just had to put my Goggle talents to work. lol Thanks to you for starting the whole thing. WE will need to get our tuxes pressed for the big award dinner. lol

  22. I used to read Rosie's blog all the time! It was so hard to get through to get a question answered but I did. Once, lol! I still like her quite a bit. I've given up watching The View, but I always did when she was on it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes, I got a couple of answers from her too. I really like her. I would love to see her come back to TV. I loved her old Rosie show. She seems to love the radio but I don't get satellite radio. She seems to have the greatest kids, I was sorry when she and her partner broke up...but you never know. Celebrity is never easy. At least she doesn't have to deal with the mother-in-law any more. lol

  24. Just 8 votes away from making page one of the Best Blog for Stuff results. Come on peeps, vote for Casey if you have yet.

    ReplyDelete
  25. can you believe i made it to page 2 out of more than 1100, lol? I'm not sure how all of those blogs got listed with zero votes. Once you're nominated, you've got at least one vote, right? I haven't been able to find out how long the voting process continues. I thought I was gaining on #1, but they got 10 more new votes today, lol. I think they won last year.

    ReplyDelete
  26. No, Casey you can nominate someone but you don't have to vote for them. lol that makes me laugh, voting is a second step.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I voted!! And I even commented. Wanted to do everything I could to push this nomination! (I'm NascarKate, apparently an old racecar nut...LOL) I think I'll go email some links out now. Casey, will you still remember us when you hit the big time? LOL

  28. Katie, I think the question should be, "how is he ever going to be able to FORGET us" !!! (try as he might!! lol)

  29. I finally was able to cast my vote -- it wasn't easy but it was worth it!

  30. thanks so much, Paul! some people get right through, others have a lot of trouble. For a web site about web sites, I think their interface is very awkward. I really appreciate you kept trying!
