Just sending a note to say hey, what's up? Love your hair.
Okay, that's totally not true. I can't even see your hair. I'm sending this note because I need a favor.
If you've been reading on a regular basis, then you know I'm in a writing competition called Blogger Idol. We're in Week #5 and I really want to stay in this contest. I'm not ready for elimination (my boys can't say that word with a straight face, either. You're not the only one.)
In order to stay afloat this week, I need your help. The judges were just sort of "meh" about my post even though I thought it was very personal and touching. But really, what do judges know?
Each week the judges read our posts and rank them, but the public votes count toward our overall score and often determine who is eliminated. Last week a writer was eliminated for being NINE votes short of the person ahead of her. NINE votes. That's insane.
Do you want that on your conscious? I mean, don't you have enough weighing on that conscious of yours?
Here's how you can help. Click this: VOTE FOR HAIRPIN TURNS AHEAD. You will be taken to the Blogger Idol website. Scroll down to the shaded voting box and click the dot next to the title of my blog, Hairpin Turns Ahead and then click "VOTE." It just takes a few seconds. And I bet you will look really cool doing it. You have that panache. I know you do.
Okay, that's not true either. You'll just be saving me. But I'm worth it, right?
Take your vitamins, drink plenty of caffeine, and have an great day!
PS: Voting for week #5 ends Thursday (Halloween) at 11:59 pm. Sp please vote before you go into your food coma from raiding your kids' Halloween candy.
