Getting out the Vote

With candidates hitting the campaign trail in Newfoundland and Labrador, one may think this post would be referring to the upcoming election. Well, it's not. Nope, this post is in reference to the ongoing 2011 NL Blogger's Choice Awards of course. :)

As day 5 fades into the night we currently have nearly 500 votes cast, spread throughout all the categories. The sports and recreation thread is on fire at the moment with over 100 votes to itself. That could be a dog fight to the very end it seems. It will be interesting to see how all the categories turn out in fact, as the days move along here. Remember nominees, shameless self promotion is accepted encouraged.

In getting out the vote I've been reaching out to the usual social media networks. The Facebook page has been notified, the Twitterverse informed and ever the traders within Empire Avenue know about this thing. With the number of votes already cast, it appears to be working and hopefully this number will continue to rise as the week progresses. Stay tuned!

Psst - I encourage you to vote in the actual election too. :)
