Please copy the following text: www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com
In a moment I will ask you to click on a link that will take you to the website of The North Coast Journal’s “Best of Humboldt” Page. When you get there, scroll down to the bottom of the page. There you will find a link to the official ballot. Click that link. Then skim past all of the categories until you get to “local media” then scroll down to the blank labeled “Best Blog”. Then, paste the text you just copied, into that blank. When you see the text www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com appear in the blank, click through the rest of the pages til you get to the end of the ballot. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page and press “Submit Ballot” or whatever the button is that submits your vote.
Ok, now click on this link and get started!
Thank you, you just voted for this blog as the “Best Blog in Humboldt Co.” I really appreciate your support.
Of course if you live here in Humboldt Co., you probably like other blogs more than this one. You probably rely on Kym Kemp’s excellent Redheaded Blackbelt for breaking news and the pot farmers perspective. If you follow the machinations of our county government or the bland platitudes that pass for national debate, you might read Eric Kirk’s SoHum Parlance2. Lots of people read Hank Sims blog now that he no longer edits the NCJ. I’ve never read it, but I bet a lot of people vote for it, just to say “in your face” to the NCJ. The 70Heaven blog is always good for a laugh, but they publish that strip in the NCJ, and those NCJ bloggers really should be disqualified from this contest anyway.
Everyone knows about those blogs because they’ve all gotten ink in newspapers around here dozens of times. So, why waste your vote on any of them? But, if you vote for this fresh, young upstart blog, and it wins, or even places, it will be the first time a newspaper has ever mentioned this blog. This will raise the profile of this little endeavor greatly. So, put your vote where it can actually do some good. Vote for www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com for “Best Blog in Humboldt Co.” in the NCJ readers poll.
If you live outside of Humboldt Co., say in Pennsylvania, Arkansas, New York, or Ohio, you probably don’t read any other Humboldt based blogs. So www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com really is your favorite Humboldt Co. blog. Tell those guys at the NCJ so, by voting for www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com as “Best Blog” in the “Best of Humboldt” contest!
And why shouldn’t this be your favorite blog. I mean, besides the fact that I kind of led you on about the beer. Look at all you get at this blog. You get comedy, poetry, philosophy, financial advice, local commentary, international events, interviews and reviews, and it improves your language skills.
So, go ahead, copy the text www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com, go to the link, and paste the text into the blank next to “Best Blog”. Then scroll to the end, and press “submit ballot” Don’t forget to press “submit ballot”. Be sure to do this at least once before Sept. 7, 2011.
Thank you very much for your help and support.
