Personal & Overall Up

Posted: December 2, 2009 by D. Collier in Uncategorized

We have received the polls for the Personal and Overall categories and have put them up for your voting pleasure.

Comments
  1. zoom says:

    Excellent. But it sure would be handy if the nominees were linked to their respective websites.

  2. I agree. It would be great to have a list somewhere of all of the nominees with hyperlinks.

  3. jess says:

    Thank you for having me in the Personal category and for doing this, but – ummm – my blog name is spelled wrong. Says drowinginkids when it should be drowninginkids.

    Thanks!

  4. heather says:

    I concur with Zoom…. I missed the nominations stage and have no idea what most of these blogs are. If I could click the link to their respective websites, I could see who I’m voting for…

  5. I’m also wondering if the “one vote per person” rule is technically enforced in any way? I voted, but then went back to the main page and it looked like I would be able to vote again if I wanted to. How is this being managed?

  6. Saskboy says:

    Annie, We’ll check into that voting question and post a reply. If we forget, email us please.

    Zoom and others, you’re right, we’re working on linking all of the blogs. Our system improved over last year, but we got I think over 1000 nominations in total, so it’s taking some manual labour to link everything, and some typos happened too.

    Thank you for your patience.

  35. Thanks so much for putting up the links to all of our blogs. Great work. I also encountered some discussion about this, and how it would be very useful.

    And once again, congratulations to everyone nominated here, not just within this Category. This is pretty awesome!

  36. Saskboy says:

    SD, thanks for creating the link list.

  37. SD says:

    Hopefully, we can get the links included on the personal blogs ballot for the next round. I do not wish to make any changes to this ballot as I could reset the results to ‘zero’ if I press the magic button in our secret ballot laboratory. In the meantime, please use the above list as a guide for the Personal Blogs.

    Sorry for breaking up the comments. I believe the comment board only accepts so many characters.

    I want to thank my fellow volunteers for their hard work. It is more work than I thought but worth it. I hope that our fellow bloggers will recognize great talent in the blogosphere so that our blogging will improve over the years.

    I’m sure we will appreciate any suggestions for next year.
