Bloggers' Choice Awards -- Yet Another Update

Seventeen measly votes. That is my current vote total in the Hottest Daddy Blogger category in the Bloggers' Choice Awards, which seem to have been ongoing now for an inordinately long time. By comparison, as of last night, the leader in the category, Neil Gaiman, had 336 votes.

I have stopped drafting my victory speech.

In the good news department, I'm still clinging to the thinnest possible one vote lead over Chris, of Thermal.

And The Comics Curmudgeon, who gets at least three times as many comments in a typical day as I get readers, has only four votes in the Best Humor Blog category and seven votes in the Best Popular Culture category.

Of course, Josh is not campaigning. I have been -- but not nearly as successfully as Barb, of Skittles' Place, who has 94 votes in category of Best Blog About Stuff. Postsecret leads this category with 317 votes -- but Barb's in third place! Not on the third page of the category -- her 94 votes are the third highest total in this category.

And Chris' other blog, Blog-Op, has pulled in 41 votes in the Best Blog About Blogging category. As of last night, he was even ahead of his idol, John Chow. Chris' success in this category may well have to do with his recently asking Claire to join Blog-Op writing tips for Blogger users. Presumably Claire will agree. Her own blog, A little piece of me, has garnered some votes in the Best Hobby Blog, Best Travel Blog, and Best Photography Blog categories... and 32 votes in the Best Blog of All Time category, only two behind one of the most widely read "Mommy Blogs," Suburban Turmoil.

RT, of Untwisted Vortex has been nominated in the categories of Worst Blog of All Time and in the categories of Best Entertainment Blog and Best Blog About Blogging. He's doing better in the positive categories -- so that must be some consolation.

One of my favorites, Captain Picard's Journal, is nominated in the Blogitzer, Best Humor Blog, and Best Blog of All Time Categories. But Empress Bee is running, uh, light years ahead of Captain Picard in the Best Humor Blog category. If you're cruising the Blogosphere for blonde jokes, you gotta see Bee.

I realize that I've missed all sorts of people in this brief update -- I didn't mention Billy Mac (of Critique My Blog!) at all -- except for now, of course -- and he's actively campaigning in the Best Blog About Blogging category where he's snagged 98 votes and is sitting in fourth place. So, if I've missed you, leave me a comment and I'll almost certainly get you into the next update. There will probably be several more -- as near as I can tell, this 'contest' has been extended until the Crack of Doom.

But vote for me anyway. Click on the Bloggers' Choice Awards button in the sidebar and it will get you to the site. (Registration is required.)

Never heard of this. Is it worth me submitting my site?

You mean: Will it generate traffic?

Actually it seems to have gotten me a few new links -- and that has been encouraging for me....

You have 18 votes, now.

Oh, and I love the Comics Curmudgeon, too.

It looks like my Humour Victory speech can be scrapped.

Shelly Franz said...

I voted for both you and Bee a couple of weeks ago.

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

Chris said...

I'd forgotten about this.

How can either of us have any votes, when nobody knows what we look like? May be a lesson there....

The Curmudgeon said...

Chris -- in my case it's an absolute requirement for any success at all!

Skittles said...

I voted for you because of the image I have of what I think you look like. :)

Thanks for the link!
