Shameless Self-Promotion

Okay, folks, I've been nominated for the Wonkette awards. Basically, the female blogger with the most votes gets a cool grand. Everybody needs to http://www.kaysbargains.com/Contest.php and vote for me. (In case you don't see it right off, it's listed under "Lawrence.com/blogs/nuckolls".) If I win, I promise to buy a big-ass bottle of whiskey and drink to y'all's health. Or something. If I lose, I'm holding ALL OF YOU personally responsible.

OMG!!! Which one is hers? Like SHE needs an extra $1000?? WTF????

Aufbrezeln Eschaton 17 years, 3 months ago

JBuckley--I wasn't hatin' on anyone, I was going on the more technical definition of a blog, and being mostly facetious--as my regular readers no doubt caught on (I'm a smartass, I make no apologies for that). But it wasn't intended to be insulting--I read Alli's blog regularly, and have nothing but respect for her and her work.

Melissa Lynch 17 years, 3 months ago

i wont work anyway. if you have already voted from a specific ip address it brings you to the result page. dont worry.

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

Make sure to tell people to NOT vote repeatedly from the same computer. It will be noted and invalidate the candidate! So do NOT do that!!!!

Melissa Lynch 17 years, 3 months ago

i'll alert the press! (im going to log on to that website from every computer i can get my grubby little mits on and vote again and again). wait, fraud. damn. but i will email jenn b. btw her and ladylaw we should get this around topeka and lawrence. i've got you covered up here.

leslie 17 years, 3 months ago

I voted! Be sure and mention my name when you're on Charlie Rose.

Aufbrezeln Eschaton 17 years, 3 months ago

Thanks, everybody. I just realized that Rosie O'Donnel's blog is one of my competitors. If that's not reason enough to vote for me, then i don't know what is.

Melissa Lynch 17 years, 3 months ago

there, i did my part. you're in second right now.

Aufbrezeln Eschaton 17 years, 3 months ago

Wow. Somebody must be voting, because I'm rising in the ranks faster than a Bush in the National Guard.

Joel 17 years, 3 months ago

I dunno. Some of those other blogs are pretty good. ; )

Aufbrezeln Eschaton 17 years, 3 months ago

Yes, they are, but none of the other bloggers are best friends with someone you're travelling hundreds of miles to hang out with ;)

Melissa Lynch 17 years, 3 months ago

a little delete cookies, a little delete files (and all offline content), throw in a little clear history, and VOILA! ... oh, i mean, then your friend can vote from the same computer you did! what, me? break the rules a little? NEVER! a-ha-ha-ha-ha-haaaaa!

(seriously ladylaw, I would never do anything to jeopardize misty's chances of winning, i swear!)

i bet rosies people are just waiting in the background, rubbing their palms together. then theyre going to bomb the site with hits seconds before the final tally. mayhem will ensue as she tries to buy another baby to raise in her hellish world of cutie patootie-ness.

maybe vodka isnt the best thing for me to drink. it makes me weird. best to stick with whiskey and beer. and a little rum...

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

that 63 days kid must work at a call center with 1000 computers!

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

Oh Snoop - I thought you were voting for me?! LOL. It's ok. I know the real meaning of nepotism, and my trying to drum up votes for Misty doesn't fit the definition. I'm not trying to get her a job where I work, or throwing business her way through any special favors over which I have authority.... Just trying to get her the $1000 prize. Maybe that makes me akin to a pushy stage mom but it's not nepotism.... Meanwhile, Misty, it's the BLOGGET award.... not Wonkette....(not that it makes any difference at all to me!) But I'll calm down. Since this contest goes on until JUNE 25th, most of the bloggers will have lost interest before it's over - and I figure THAT is when Rosie's people will start flooding the voting. Like she needs another $1000..... Meanwhile, looks like other folks are finding you! That is a good thing! Maybe you should quick do another blog on how badly you could use the $1000 - surely you can work up a sob story worthy of extra votes? LOL....

Carmenilla 17 years, 3 months ago

Just a little gentle teasing, Snoop. What got your panties in a bunch? Considering the way you deal it out, I figure you should be able to take it. Ladylaw, doesn't seem terribly offended. Why are you? And I am all about women helping other women! Unless its Oprah....

And I'd love to write a blog but it would be something boring, like how I love to cook and the recipes I use. I'm a big foodie nerd.

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

Actual Carm, I'm not easy to tease (in person let alone in writing). I don't get sarcasm. I don't mean I don't appreciate it if I know it is saracasm. I mean that kind of "humor" usually goes right over my head a lot of the time. Maybe it's because I am so very literal. Maybe it's also because, clear back in highschool, I decided that put down humor was not very funny (tearing people down, for whatever reason, is far easier, but far less rewarding then building people up). My siblings will tell you how extremely easy it is to get me all wound up over some perceived slight or injury (to others as well as self). I should have grown much thicker hide by my ripe old age. But so far, I've remained fairly tender skinned and hearted... SO any defense of me (by Snoop especially!) is appreciated! Meanwhile, I would love a recipe sharing blog! I would be a big reader/fan/contributer, as I am a huge fan of food! And cooking. I divide the world into 3 categories; food, non-food, and possible food. And my possible-food category is rather large.....

JBuckley 17 years, 3 months ago

Cool deal, Mitzi, and sorry if I was a bit knee jerkish. I tend to think that regardless of when the events that she writes about transpired, if she's writing about these experiences now and posting them on a fairly regular basis and allowing for reader commenting, then it's definitely a blog. If she had written a book 10 years ago and decided to start posting it bit by bit, that would be a different story. But I think the term "blog" has come to encompass much more than personal journaling or discussion of current events. There are lots of bloggers who don't follow such a strict interpretation.

On a side note, I'm sure any of the contestants could use the money more than Rosie O'Donnell.

Aufbrezeln Eschaton 17 years, 3 months ago

Oh, wow, that was a total brain fart on the name. Maybe because I'm such a big fan of Wonkette, my silly little head just transposed the names. I suck.

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

I am dead serious about writing another blog on another topic...now...so that the new readers/fans this contest is bringing your way get to hear WHY they should vote for you.... Pull out all the stops. Be brilliant. Or polish off an old chestnut. Leaving out some of the thorns and f bombs .......perhaps the "don't pray for me" one or "what I did while driving back from the Oregon festival one..." Etc. ..... Let's see....trying to remember one that really hit home....there've been so many.... take a vote amongst your base. AND make LJW give you a plug - surely a lot of Lawrence JW readers who own computers, but aren't into blogs yet, would find out what they're missing in order to help a local gal win that prize!?? It would help sell their product AND help Misty! I like it...

Carmenilla 17 years, 3 months ago

A little nepotism never hurt anyone, right, ladylaw? I do hope you win, Misty, but some of the competition is pretty stiff. Like your drinks, I imagine....

Todd 17 years, 3 months ago

The blog of a libertarian lesbian. http://savannahsam.blogspot.com/

Now that's interesting.

JiggyJay 17 years, 3 months ago

Yert's gaming buddies in the house! :)

Snoop 17 years, 3 months ago

I'm not voting for you because you're a damm communist!

Besides I think u need to kiss a little more Da Blog ass and maybe a few folks might vote for you.

Levi Chronister 17 years, 3 months ago

I voted for you, too! 20.8 percent and rising!

JiminyJones 17 years, 3 months ago

I like the blog, and I'm going to keep reading it, but I can't vote. I found out about you through the Blogette award, and I found about that from 63days, and she's already got my vote. I suggest you all read it if you haven't, it's not just another blog, it's a moving true story. And I don't mean to suggest this is just another blog by that comment by that.

Aufbrezeln Eschaton 17 years, 3 months ago

Once again, thanks everybody--I mean, everybody but Snoop. Snoop can kiss my lily-white ass.
Nice to see you made it over, Jiggy, and any other UT'ers who're being quiet. Nope, that's not Rosie in the lead, that's a chick's installation-blog about her experiences with Challenger camp in the '90's. Compelling stuff, but not, in my opinion, a true "blog", so I don't feel the least bit guilty about trying to edge her out.

Snoop 17 years, 3 months ago

"A little nepotism never hurt anyone, right, ladylaw?"

Damm Carmie did the PMS kick in or can I offer you a drink? Your gettin' meaner in your old age.

Can't one woman help anotha out?

You start writin' a blog and I'll vote for you...that will of course mean you will lose but it's the thought that counts.

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

on my way outta town...checked the stats...Misty "sank" to 2nd over night. Get the vote out people!!!

Snoop 17 years, 3 months ago

Oh Mitzi am I suppose to vote.........now.

Guillaume 17 years, 3 months ago

Just wanted to say that we are working very hard on voting. You have the support of eZs members ;-) . hope you will get you bottle.

quinn 17 years, 3 months ago

I voted for you, and at the moment it looks like you and the leading vote-getter are running away with the competition. Carry on....

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

I'm back...and while I was gone SOMEONE let Misty slip to 2.2% behind first place!! . . . ..and the 3rd place person is moving up fast!!

COME ON PEOPLE!!! Find more voters with computers! Surely more people haven't yet voted for her - - spread the word and keep spreading it!!

PLEASE??!!!!

silly_sad_machine 17 years, 3 months ago

so, yeah, i guess i'll vote for your blog. i mean, i've looked it over really well, and, in my personal opinion, it absolutely sparkles. i mean, like, lots of sparkling going on. sparks everywhere. i was almost blinded by all the sparkling.

honestly, if i had a choice, i would've named your blog sparky. or something of that nature.

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

Ha - you got the right (but now we're all 'hatin", huh?) - If need be, I can personally attest to Misty's NEED (dire and real) for that prize money. As well as her talent and spirit and ability to overcome adversity. And as for having some experience with challenges and hard knocks, if Misty EVER started telling her stories (from childhood and before) there'd be a whole lot of hankies coming out. But instead of dwelling on the past or hanging out tons of dirty laundry, with wit and humor she has bucked up and carried on and become the ROLE MODEL for many...including some pretty conservative parents who point to her when they are dealing with a teen who thinks they have it hard and are so cool! Heck, if Rosie still had her show, she'd want pink haired Misty on to tell her story! So, Buckley dear, while your vote is already cast, I am still hoping and praying the masses give MISTY the money! She needs and deserves it!

bee 17 years, 3 months ago

I voted for you also. I hope you win!

Aufbrezeln Eschaton 17 years, 3 months ago

I knew all those hours Trey spent in the basement shooting at people would pay off eventually ;)

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

Yes Snoop....vote for her now...and pass it along too... surely you have a friend or colleague (or two) who'd do you a favor and vote for her also!???

obuchanan 17 years, 3 months ago

There, did my part... Still second, though. Hope it's not Rosie up front?

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

I voted and I sent an email to literally everyone I know (who has e-mail) DEMANDING they cast the vote for you. IF you don't win the $1000 we will make a fraud complaint to the AG!!!

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

OK...you are fast approaching first place (23% versus 20% of the vote)...BUT this contest lasts till the end of June - plenty of time for others to enter and/or sand-bag you! What we need here is a strategy that is designed to FLOOD them with votes, especially in the last few days.

Hey you homies .... Phil C....DON'T YOU HAVE ANY GOOD MARKETING IDEAS??? This would be a good time/way to promote the lawrence.com blogs. Think of the press. "Local blogger has real chance to win national best female blog contest!! Come on, join in making sure she wins!" Doesn't that sound like a good front page Journal World story????

Snoop 17 years, 3 months ago

Why thank you Mitzi, for that you will get my vote. See what offering quality services will get you!

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

And anyone else who has not already done so, send out this information to your entire address book - help get Misty this prize!! She not only deserves it, she needs it!!!! So send along the info to your email address book, and insist THE do the same on their end. Think of this as the biggest chain letter ever started, and you get to be on the starting end for a change!

Guillaume 17 years, 3 months ago

Well...I did a little count and there were 63 votes from my rainbow six 3 community, over 50 and still counting over coupe quebec ladder (competition site), a lot from eZs and a a great St-Mathieu effect all around with our friends posting it everywhere.

Take care! Hello to Yert (or whatever his real name is) ;-)

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

She's still in first folks, but not by much, and those in 3rd place down are moving up faster.... AND this contest lasts for over a whole month more....It ends June 25, and that gives a ton of time for the other contestants to dig up more supporters and votes (or simply visit a bank of computers for that purpose....). SO if you care (please care) not only will you cast YOUR vote for Misty, you will also send out the message to any and all persons you know, and urge them to do the same. This is your chance to be on the STARTING end of a giant chain letter that goes around the world..COME ON - if she wins, we can all claim to have done our parts!

YERT = that's a good one....

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

Rosie O'Donnel's blog routinely gets 500+ comments per entry....So when THOSE fans kick in, it will take a couple more thousand folks to put Misty on top..... GET THIS MESSAGE OUT TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW AND TELL THEM TO DO THE SAME>>>>>>TODAY!!

JBuckley 17 years, 3 months ago

Don't be hatin' on 63 Days! How is it "not a real blog?" There's nothing wrong with a little healthy competition, but there's really no need show poor sportsmanship.

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

A blog, by definition, is a web log. It is like a journal, with thoughts and feelings entered about current goings on or thoughts. If something happened 10 years ago, and the events in question are a decade old, it's more in the nature of good non-fiction. The diary of Anne Frank is an excellent book and if published on-line many would read and enjoy its compelling story. BUT it would not be a blog.....

Terry Bush 17 years, 3 months ago

I know you will all be please to know that not only is Misty still in the lead...may it last until June 26th....but I will NOT be on a computer for the next three days (starting tomorrow AM) ...SO I will not be bugging and pushing and prodding and being a general pain about this....to ask/beg/force everyone to not only vote themselves but bug/ask/beg/ everyone ELSE they know to do the same (ad infinintum)..... I know you will all miss that so much..... SO, PK or Jilla.... will you please take over until I return!? LOL....

Melissa Lynch 17 years, 3 months ago

i've done my voting and campaigning. if i think of anyone else to try to reach trust me, i will. but dire? is there something i should know?

your_mileage_may_vary 17 years, 2 months ago

Done and done. I sure as hell don't want you to come looking for me sober or otherwise.

Beware readers, not voting can be hazardous to our health.

18+% as of today.

Snoop 17 years, 2 months ago

I'm going to start my own blog so I can get the $1000.!!

Or we should have a Lawrence.com contest as to the most hated or the person that has pissed off the most people on Da Blogs.

Hey tell that Blog Yoda guy about my idea.

Terry Bush 17 years, 2 months ago

But you'd still have to get people who'd vote for you...more than anyone else.....
