You know, about two months ago when I got nominated very, very late in the game for the Blogger’s Choice awards you guys all came together with a bunch of votes in a period of only a few days. The problem was, the voting had been open for an entire year, but we were only in on it the last week of the year.
Well, I just found out that the 8th Annual Weblog Awards are accepting submissions up until Jan 11, so if any of you guys want to see One Man’s Blog in the running now would be the time to do some submitting. (Shameless plug duly noted.) After the 11th they are going to narrow down the submissions and pick just a few that will be open for voting for some period of time thereafter. It sure would be something if OMB somehow scored a major upset and made it onto the list!
Now I know that with 70 million + blogs out there we’ve got like a one in a million chance, but as Lloyd said in Dumb and Dumber…
“What you’re telling me is, we’ve got a chance!”
As far as I can tell, the categories most befitting this blog would be “Best American Weblog”, “Best-Kept Secret Weblog”, or the elusive “Weblog of the Year” – of which I’m certain we have no chance at winning. But heck, I guess this is really about mobilizing your reader base as much as actual blog quality, so in the end doesn’t that really mean this is a vote about YOU, my dear readers, and not me?
So, if you can spare like 3 minutes to throw a vote my way in return for the 950 posts I’ve put out in the last year and a half I would really appreciate the gesture!
If you don’t have time, it’s no big deal really! I just appreciate the fact that you guys keep reading and commenting on my crazy ramblings day after day. In the last year I’ve gone from around 100 to 1000 regular subscribers (as reported by Feedburner), and an average day around One Man’s Blog means at least 10,000 readers – so again… Thanks!!!
