Have You Voted?
Have you voted for www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com for “best blog in Humboldt Co.” in the North Coast Journal’s annual “Best of Humboldt” reader survey? Why not? What’s wrong with you? Don’t you realize what’s at stake?
If you live in Humboldt, or just feel like making the trip, and www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com wins the North Coast Journal’s “Best Blog in Humboldt” award, I will throw a party, with FREE BEER for all www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com readers. No other Humboldt Co. blog can match that offer.
This offer alone should be enough to buy your vote, but look at everything else that makes this blog special. Every week you get provocative essays, clever poems, and big words that help make you sound smart. Every week I slather these words with high-quality graphics stolen from all over the web, to create an experience not unlike an electronic Dr. Zeus book for adults. You don’t get that from any other blog.
I would never post a picture of a sunset, and call that a blog post. You’ve never seen pictures of my kids, pets, or anything I pulled out of my garden, in this blog. I never re-post anything written by anyone else, mostly because I never read anything written by anyone else. Nor will I bore you with the trivialities of my personal life, because that’s none of your business. You won’t find any of that cheap blog filler material in here. I write this stuff to amuse people, and if you don’t find it amusing, why the fuck are you here?
Now, I’m not getting paid for this. I do this for you, week after week after week, and mostly, I ask for nothing in return. But today, right now, I need your help. It will only take a minute, won’t cost you any money, and can win you FREE BEER!
I don’t care if you like other Humboldt blogs more than this one. You weren’t even going to vote, except as a favor to me. So, don’t let me down. It means a lot to me, will help lots of people discover this amusing site, and get you FREE BEER! So Please, do it for me, do it for all of the under-amused people out there, and do it for the FREE BEER!
At the end of this essay you’ll find a link that will take you to a page on the NCJ website that explains the rules, and has a link at the end that takes you to the ballot.
Ok, when you get to the ballot, you’ll find several pages of categories. Don’t waste your time on any of them except “best blog”. Really stupid categories, like “best corporate citizen” or “best big box store”, don’t even deserve a glance. Don’t go near the “Best local food” categories. If you try to think of who makes the least lame pizza in Humboldt, or which taco truck hasn’t made you queasy yet, you’ll just get depressed and give up. So just ignore all of the other categories.
Just click through the pages of the ballot until you get to the one labeled “Best Local Media”. That’s the right page. Then scroll down to the slot labeled “best blog”, and paste the text, or type in www.lygsbtd.wordpress.com Make sure you see it spelled correctly in the box.
Just one more very important step.
Click through (one or two more pages) to the end of the ballot. At the bottom of that page you will find a button to “Submit Ballot” Press it. That’s all it takes, less than a minute, I swear, just do it, and get it over with right now. Please! Ok, here’s the link to get started
Thank you very much!
