Still getting hosed in the BoBs
: I'm proud to say that after a week of voting, Travels in Booland is solidly in second-to-last place in the GLBT category. If you want to see if the Readers of Travels in Booland have the power to bump me up a place or two, you could vote here
between now and Januray 14th. (And hey! You can vote every day! I checked and it's okay. Okay, stopping before I rhyme any more.)
But I'm not too worked up about winning, because:
1) Even at second-to-last place, I've never seen traffic this good. True to the BoB Founders' intent
to bring more attention to little blogs (like this one), I've been getting lots of visits ever since making the finalist list. Of course, most of those are probably people browsing the LBGT list who stop by just long enough to wonder how the *&^%@! one of those Dreaded Mommy Blogs snuck into the category; but hey, I'm not proud. I'll take an ego boost any way it comes.
and speaking of ego boosts...
2) I won a Spanglemonkey Award
Best Nuclear Family Without a Y Chromosome Among Them in the Seattle Area But So Much More Besides Blog, 2004!
*Sniff* I'm so happy.
Just go visit Jo
and you can win one too--she has a garage full and is giving them out to everyone who invites her over! The "I Eat Dinner" Award and so many others are still up for grabs.
Or you can swipe the award button
and give yourself an award. What a woman. What a blogger.
