Being absent from the blogosphere does come with many surprises. New comments from new readers, hundreds of spam comments and unread feed reads. A lot to catch on. The sweetest surprise of all is to know that Chatterbox (my blog) and Shutterbox (my photo-blog) is nominated at Orbbies: Orlando’s Rockin’ Blogs organized by Orlando Sentinel.
The Orlando Sentinel Orbbies Contest is looking for Orlando’s best local blogs. I am very appreciative if you could find the time and vote daily for my blog and photo-blog. This is so exciting I’ve created two separate banners as below for ease of voting. Please click on each to vote separately, one for our blog and the other, for my photo-blog. The badge on the top-right sidebar is click-able as well, for voting. You would have to register with a user id and password in order to cast your vote. But if you’re a fellow Orlandoan, and you are yet to register, there is no excuse of unfamiliarity with Orlando Sentinel. It would be shocking! Thank you guys, you are the best! Wish us luck!
Rules of voting as stated on Orlando Sentinel:
- Voting for the 2009 Orbbies begins Nov. 2 at 10 am and ends on Friday, Nov. 20 at 5 pm.
- You may vote once per category, per day. You may also vote once per day for Best Overall Blog (BOB). You must log in to your OrlandoSentinel.com account in order to vote.
- Winners in each category and for “best overall” will be notified by e-mail before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 25. The winner in each category will receive an ad campaign of 20,000 impressions on OrlandoSentinel.com and a rockin’ certificate. If a blog wins in more than one category (it can win in up to three), the runner-up will receive the ad campaign. If there are not enough nominations within a category like categories may be merged or a prize may not be issued for that category.
Voting for the 2009 Orbbies begins Nov. 2 at 10 am and ends on Friday, Nov. 20 at 5 pm (US Eastern Time). Have you cast your vote for us yet?
