the laid.back Buddhist has MOVED...back!

Saturday, November 3

VOTE ME for Best Diarist?

I am in awe*.

Thanks to everyone’s support, Cooper’s** nomination carried me through...to become a 2007 Weblog Awards FINALIST.

Suh-weet!

However, that means the real hardcore voting has now officially begun:



To give underdogs a fighting chance, individuals are allowed to vote ONCE every day. The voting period extends til Thursday, Nov. 8th, so please help a girl out these next 6 days by voting for yours truly.

And then who knows?!

I might actually have a decent shot at winning this thing!

In fact, I might even feel bold enough by the show of support to hold a no-bounds (eeps!!) “You Q; I’ll A” session to celebrate afterwards…

Was that a bribe in not-so-subtle disguise?

Why, of course. ;)

I mean, did you seriously expect anything LESS devious from a...well, deviant laid-back Buddhist?!

Plus, you ought to realize how firmly I believe in the whole point of learning rules simply to figure out which ones to bend and break.

(JUST KIDDING…um, hi Kevin!)

So have at it!

This is especially targeted at those 80-some feed readers who may have already (or not) de-lurked your lovely, witty selves.

Yes, that was a blatant (albeit sincerely meant!) attempt at cajoling flattery.

Anyhow. Feel free to leave a comment so that I may gush excitedly, give personal thanks, and send IOU's of back massages...

You know, the works.

Count me in on voters but hey, I don't want an IOU massage, I could use a real one! I've had the flu and ache all over.

I'm really a newcomer here and I guess de-lurking although I haven't had time to read much - I'm way behind after taking a break this week due to being sick. I really do need and want to spend some time looking around here and invite y'all to do the same. Actually Joanne, I'ven enjoyed your comments over there - very much appreciated.

Peace, love and understanding.

Is there anything worse than finding you voted less than 24 hours ago *twidles thumbs*
Actually I'm sure there are many things worse but, well, you get my drift.

Oh and I think you are a very good gushy flatterer and for that reason alone you deserve to win

Beth said...

You have my vote, every day!

Army Wife said...

I cam over here snooping! Good luck!!!

dcr said...

Third place... You're such a slacker. ;-) Maybe I'll have to fire up a couple computers to help you out. ;-)

Monsieur Pingouin said...

I have and will continue to vote for you DAILY.

Michael Woo said...

Hiye.. :p.. i like ur pictures hahhaa.. anyway it's a hard decision to make on whether to monetize your blog or not. sponsored posts are rather dangerous as it kills your visitors but there are other ways to monetize like text link ads which is not that invasive.. cheers!
