Shameless, I am!

in It IS all about me, Life in Ottawa, Photography

A couple of quick items: first, aren’t you pleased that I haven’t been haranguing you every single day to vote for me in the Canadian Blog Awards? It’s a nice change over previous years, no? But, ahem, have you voted for me under the Best Family Blog category in the Canadian Blog Awards yet? (Apparently, you could have been voting for me every day for the past week and a half. Had I only known!)

Anyway, if you missed the earlier post on it, here’s the instructions. (The fact that I need to publish instructions to harangue you for your votes definitely factored into my decision not to be obnoxious about this!)

  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!

And speaking of shameless self-promotion, that’s entirely what I forgot to do with this. I don’t know if you noticed it sitting there unobtrusively in the sidebar since September, but I made up a calendar of some of my best images of Ottawa from my 365 project and turned them into a calendar that’s for sale on Lulu.com.

You can click through to Lulu.com to see a full preview of the calendar pages, but that seems to only work sporadically. Here are a few of the many images from my 365 project that I’ve used singly and in collages throughout the calendar:

My creation

I had a *lot* of trouble with Lulu.com, to be honest, and almost didn’t bother to tell you about it. But then I got an e-mail (that I didn’t entirely understand, to be honest) that said my calendar would be featured on Amazon.com (which I still haven’t been able to find) and I thought, “Well hell, I might as well put it on my own blog, then!”

And special for you, I’ve just dropped the price by $5.00!
