So, Nichelle at DanceAdvantage has got a little contest going on!
Called the Readers’s Choice Top Dance Blogs of 2010.
Which is is great idea because for some reason there’ve been a lot of Top Ballet Blog lists going around lately that sound all cool and stuff but then turn out to be generated by, like, Chainsaw Mechanics & Marshmallow Enthusiasts Magazine Dot Com. And you’re like, oh! Must read list! And then you’re like, oh, but what do the readers of Chainsaw Mechanics & Marshmallow Enthusiasts Magazine Dot Com know about ballet blogs anyway? And who are they to judge the Top 50 or whatever?
Well, that’s why this contest is a great idea. Because it’s judged by you, Gentle Reader.
And there are lots of categories, including Dance Student/Beginner.
Now, at first I was all full of that Middle School Feeling, and I was all like, No, mustn’t enter contest, what if I can has Rejection??? Oh Noes!!!!!
But, that’s the nice thing about being an adult, you can Get Over the middle school feeling.
So I got over it and then I wrote this note:
If you would like to vote for my blog, just leave a comment on this post.
And I will be Totally Delighted but will not respond because that would skew the comments tally, and judging is based on number of people who comment. So, No, multiple comments from the same person won’t help me win. (But I like the way you think!)
And, um, I’m really sensitive you guys, so don’t check the No box.
And no matter what happens, it an honor just to be nominated!
PS, voting is open until December 22nd, then we’ll see if AdultBeginner makes it to the finalists round!
