in How I love the Interwebs, My 15 minutes

Okay, so the fact that I’m trapped in the basement (they’re installing the laminate over my head as I type) and the fact that I’ve been nominated for Best Family Blog in the Canadian Blog Awards are completely unrelated. And yet, they’re the best segue I’ve got. Save me from the noise (oh my sweet lord, the noise!) and the dust and the chaos, send me a vote as a salve on my twitchy soul. (Too much? Yeah, I was afraid of that.)

Ahem, anyway, they’re using a new voting system this year, and while it looks a little bit intimidating, it’s not too bad. If you would like to vote for me (please please please?) these instructions will help you navigate through.

  1. Click on this link to the Best Family Blog poll and it will open the voting page in a new window.
  2. Scroll down until you find Postcards for the Mothership.
  3. Click on the little drop-down triangle immediately to the right of the blog title.
  4. Select “1st”. Cuz you love me, right?
  5. Optional: there are lots of other great blogs in this list, so if you want to choose more than one, you can rank your choices and toss a vote to all your favourites. I’m not entirely sure I understand the ranking system, though. You don’t have to rank or choose more than one blog to vote, though.
  6. Scroll down to the bottom of the poll and click “vote”.
  7. Press “confirm”.

  8. Bask in the sunshine of my everlasting gratitude!

This is round one, and there will be a round two for the top ten vote-getters next week. Throw me a vote and send me through to the finals?

And stay tuned, because I have an awesome holiday giveaway that starts later today or tomorrow — don’t miss it!!

Well, since I couldn’t vote for myself this year, I did click a little number 1 next to your blog last night!

I voted, although I will admit after I discovered that I am also nominated I may not have ranked you first. 😉

Good luck!
