I have a confession to make. This is my confession . . . just when I thought I said all I could say . . . Oh, sorry. Where was I? Oh yeah. Confession time. I am an absolutely horrible self promoter. Why? What did you think I was gonna confess to?
I have a very hard time trying to promote, not only myself, but my blog. I am also horrible at accepting praise. Mostly, this is because of my horribly debilitating low self-esteem, but also because of my self-image issues. I just never feel like I’m good enough, hence, I don’t really put myself out there. In real life, I am also painfully shy. Now, I have gotten over a lot of these traits over the years, and I am much more self confident than, say, teenaged Misty, but I still struggle with these issues all the time.
Despite that, I am hereby going to do something that goes against my very nature . . . I am going to whore out this blog like a high priced call girl. Hey baby, want a date? Oh, wait. Maybe that’s more Pretty Woman than Heidi Fleiss. I always get all my whores confused.
There is this award. It is called the Bloggie. I have heard it compared to the Oscars of blog awards. That could be total bunk, but I choose to believe it. It’s possible it’s more like the Golden Globes, though. Everyone gets drunk and nobody really cares who wins. Yeah, that sounds more likely.
It is a nominated and voted on by the public kind of thing. There are multiple categories and you can vote for numerous blogs in each. I went on there today and nominated a bunch of my favorites. I plan to return when the official voting opens in a couple weeks.
So, what I would like for you to do is to go vote for your favorites. I am also asking (gulp), that you vote for mine. Hey, have I mentioned how pretty you look today? And how smart you are. And your blog is really hysterical. I just think you are the bestest ever!
Great. Now I am a whore.
Obviously, only vote for me if you think I deserve it, but it would be super exciting to win that kind of accolade, especially since it’s voted on by ma peeps! You could nominate me in the Best New Blog category (since I just started last year), or the Best Kept Secret category (since nobody but a very select few even know I exist), or even Most Humorous.
Make sure you read the rules at the top of the Bloggies page, just above the nomination part. You can only vote once, but you can include numerous sites on each category. There are even categories for best European, Asian and Australian/NZ blogs (can you guess who I voted for in those?). 🙂
Anyway, please go vote. Support the blogs that you love. Show them that love. Even if it isn’t me (it’s going to be me, though, right? Right?).
The current nomination phase ends on January 15th, so make sure you go now!
