Still Shamelessly Self Promoting
I would like to not have to talk about this too much more, honestly, and just focus on baseball, but I feel like it’s wisdom to remind you all of the $10,000 scholarship I’ve been nominated for thanks to my work here. Hopefully, if you’re reading this, you’ve enjoyed some of my writing, and you’re willing to take ten seconds, click the link and vote for me.
Thanks to the early response, I’ve had a comfortable lead for most of the contest. However, the current second place nominee has been flooding Daily Kos, getting 11 stories posted about the scholarship in the last five days, and racking up hundreds of votes from folks who have never heard of him but simply are voting because he shares their political beliefs.
Daily Kos is a machine, and their readership obviously dwarfs ours. However, I’m somewhat hopeful that the fact that you guys actually read this blog and feel some connection to the work here will motivate you to vote, and we can hold off the DailyKos mob.
So, if you haven’t yet, please go vote. It’s open through Thursday night, but voting now and helping keep the lead fairly safe will also help me sleep a bit better at night…
