Your Checklist: Vote or Buy

December 13, 2005 — 9 Comments

UPDATE: Please vote only one time. If you want to get more votes in for me, then tell your friends, your mom, and your dog. But don’t vote twice. I reviewed the rules, and unlike other blog awards, in this one you cannot vote every day.

With the extremely interesting interesting discussion going on in the Christmas post, I’ve been busy keeping up with that and working on some not so top-secret projects. I wanted to let you know of a couple of things that you needed to do today.

First of all, you need to go and VOTE for your favorite homeschool(ed) bloggers. Now, if I don’t get the best teen blog of the year, then you really need to vote for the best designed blog. I personally would vote for the Rebelution or Spunky Jr. or Smart Homeschool as the best teen bloggers of this year. Spunky is, of course, the finest homeschool mom blogger out there, but I didn’t see her on the ballot. The best group blog in my opinion would be Beauty From the Heart. I saw some other great current events blogs as well.

And guys, whoever nominated the Rebelution for the best Photo Blog…

Anyway, take time to vote!

But, if you don’t vote, what will make me happy is if you stop by the Agent Tim Online store, and show your support for the site. It really helps to keep it going!

  1. I voted for you! :) More than once! Keep up the great work. Your blog was the reason I started blogging! :)

    I really would by something from the store, but I’m afraid I have no money. :( Sorry!

  2. I voted for you more than once too, but truth be told, I don’t remember what I nominated you for!!! So I probably didn’t even vote for my nomination of you!!!

  3. LOL. That’s quite alright.

    Hey, you could always ask for a T-Shirt for Christmas ;-).

    As for voting more than once–please make sure that that is legal. I don’t want to break the rules!

  4. I did ask for a T-shirt but I don’t know if I’ll get it. Hmmmm, anyway, it wouldn’t get here for Christmas in time.

  5. Yes, I’m pretty certain it is- I voted for you in different categories, you see. Like for best blog design, best homeschool informational blog, etc. I think that’s OK, right? Well, I guess I better go check… :)

  6. I emailed Spunky and asked. :) I hope its OK!

  7. Ok, she emailed me back- it’s all right. You can vote for the same blog in more than one category. :) Phew! I was afraid for a while there that I’d broken the rules! :)

  8. Good to hear! I just wanted to make sure everyone only voted once! But THANKS FOR VOTING! I really appreciated it. These awards are pretty fun :).

  9. I voted for you! I think it was something like “most information blog” or something like that. I can’t remember. It was late last night :)
