This year, I’m ending things in grand fashion because Parents Magazine has nominated me for both Best Blog and Best Instagram in their Social Media Awards.
Now. Let’s be clear. In all the times I have been nominated for this sort of thing, I have never won once. In fact, the false hope leading up to the ultimate rejection has caused me to sit most of these vote-offs out. (Did I mention it’s a vote-off?)
It’s Parents Magazine and they narrowed each category down to the top five and the winners get a feature in their magazine and yada yada yada I really want to win this one.
But Ilana, you said that last year!
Yes, I know. It didn’t happen. Don’t rub it in.
Since it all comes down to popular vote, being nominated in both Best Blog and Best Instagram probably means I have less chance of winning either, but I am going to ask you to vote for me in both categories anyway.
Also? I am going to ask you to vote for me in both categories every day until the winners are announced on January 13th. That means even if you voted yesterday, you should click the link to vote again today.
EVERY DAY??? SHEEESH!!!!
I don’t make the rules, okay?
Don’t worry, I’ll be super subtle about asking repeatedly.
Also, I think I might have a real shot because the other bloggers are way too classy to (vote for me!) beg for votes. Seriously, it’s very stiff competition and I am honored to be included amongst some of my favorite bloggers and instagrammers.
The good news is, once you vote, they make it super easy to share your pick on all your social media channels. You know, just in case you’d like to tell all your family and friends to vote for me too.
Your drunk aunt with all the ferrets needs something to do with her day anyway.
If you’re like— but why do you even deserve Best Instagram or Best Blog???? Well, you can check out my instagram feed here and judge for yourself.
It seems appropriate given the new year and all.
But first, did you vote yet? I’ll wait…
Now, let’s get to it, shall we?
