Another Chance To Vote

Long-time visitors may remember that about a year ago this blog was a finalist for a 2007 Weblog Award in the best parenting blog category. Voting began just as we started our first ever Walt Disney World vacation, so the timing was not exactly optimal from the standpoint of mounting an aggressive worldwide ground operation and get-out-the-vote effort. We finished 10th. Out of 10.

The 2008 edition is just beginning and we're hoping for a better result this year. First step is actually making the cut (getting back to "finalist" status) and, as we understand it, this goal is aided by people out there visiting the 2008 Weblog Awards site and clicking on a little green circle that appears underneath this blog's name, effectively "seconding" our nomination.

I'm not sure why this matters to me but it does. "It makes me sleep good at night ... and that's all I have to say about that." And, really, where else out there on the Web are you going to find merged dialogue from Scarface and Forrest Gump?

So all that's needed at this point is to hit this link, which takes you to the parenting category, scroll down into the comments section and click on the little green (plus sign) circle that appears directly underneath the second comment, the "I think this world is perfect..." nomination. You could also hit the 2008 Weblog Awards button on the upper right of this page, it takes you to the same place.

And thank you very much.

"Victory!"

(OK, merged dialogue from Scarface, Forrest Gump and Entourage)

Mission accomplished. I think your blog is fabulous. My children are grown, but I like your insights on parenting and quite enjoy your posts.
