The Moment Has Arrived

The 2008 Weblog Awards

Around this time last year "I think this world is perfect..." was recognized as a finalist in the 2007 Weblog Awards, best parenting blog category. We were humbled and amazed, but the celebration was short lived, because as soon as the voting started we were stomped down like someone who spilled beer on the girlfriend of a Hells Angel at Altamont.

We briefly considered renaming this blog "Amalah Road Kill," but ultimately decided to soldier on and continue to post, and there were some nice developments along the way - like being tapped as a "Blog of Note" by Blogger, which resulted in a momentary spike in traffic and - after Gwen gave me $2.49 - a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

Now the 2008 edition of the Weblog Awards is here, we've again been honored as a finalist in the parenting blog category and are hoping for a better result this time around. And our loyal readers (all 12 of you) are in a position to help.

Here is a link to the parenting blog voting booth, all you need to do is hit the link, click on the ballot in the appropriate place to signify your vote for "I think this world is perfect..." (last one on the list) and that's it.

Polls are open for a week and visitors are allowed to vote once per day, so depending on your degree of blog love and available free time you can actually throw seven votes our way, which would be tremendous and very much appreciated. As was the case last year, we're up against some extremely established competition, including commercial sites and the inevitable Amalah juggernaut, so we need all the help we can get.

Thank you!

Thanks Kevin, as usual, for your kind words and support... but just a few hours into voting we're already up against it and need all the help we can get. So go mobilize your army and give us a fighting chance... what do you say? Deal?
