In two hours (7 p.m. PST), a special link will go live as the voting begins for 11 nominees vying for the 2015 “Performance of the Year” award at The Public Blogger. This will be the first round of eliminations that will continue until the winner is announced Dec. 30. This mix of nominated artists includes writers, photographers, hip-hop singers, poets and one humorist (for those with a weak heart, I won’t draw out the suspense and just let you know it’s me). Since yesterday, I’ve been featuring the works of my fellow nominees here and on my Facebook page because:
1) Giving as many people as possible the chance to see their terrific work is the right thing to do
2) It’s a real honor to be among this group. Period.
3) If I get voted out, I’m hoping for the “Congeniality Performance” award
When the link goes live at 7 p.m., I’ll post it here and on my Facebook page. Your vote accouts for 70% of the judging, with another 25% based on each nominee’s Facebook “likes” about this event.
The last 5% is based on how much crying and whining I do.
Until the voting begins, here is a last look at all 11 nominees, along with a link to a live page that includes live links to their sites. I hope you’ll get the chance to look at their work and vote between 7 p.m. tonight and 10 a.m. tomorrow (Oct. 12).
My sincere thanks for your support and encouragement since the nominations were announced last week. Although I do think the “Sorry for Your Loss” card from Chris De Voss and the gang at Long Awkward Pause was a little premature. But still thoughtful.
Seriously, though: Thank You, everyone! I promise this vote will be a lot more fun than the presidential elections…
