Hey everyone! It's been an exciting week around here. I'm celebrating my Blogoversary, I'm getting closer everyday to having my own baking business, and now I'm entered in Foodbuzz's Project Food Blog to become the Next Food Blog Star!
So, um, I'm sure you want to know what that means. Well, the top prize is $10,000 and a feature on Foodbuzz for one year! But it's not going to be easy. There are 10 specific challenges we must blog about, and the pool of contestants is whittled down after each entry based on the judges' and other contestants' votes. There's currently almost 2000 contestants, and only 400 of us will advance. And let me tell you, after checking out some other entries, competition is going to be stiff!
There's also a reader's choice winner, who advances to the next round based solely on the public vote. And that's where you all come in! To the right of this post, you should see a link to the Project Food Blog site, with my smiling face and banner that says vote for me! Simply click on this link, and it will take you to the voting page. My post, Of Blogs and Blogging, should be the first one you see, and all you need to do is click on the heart to vote for me. You can only vote for each blog once, so be sure to spread the word around, and tell your friends to vote for me too!
For those of you unfamiliar, Foodbuzz is an online community for foodies, a place for bloggers and food lovers to get together to share pictures, recipes and reviews. It's like Facebook for food porn. If you are not already a Foodbuzz member, you will have to sign up in order to vote. I encourage you to check it out if you've got an interest in food. And if it's just not your thing, then please just sign up, vote for me, and forget about it! Pretty please, with a cherry on top? 10K could really help me launch my business!
Voting is only open for 3 days, from now until 6pm on Thursday, September 23rd. The 400 winners who will advance to the next round will be announced at Noon on Friday, September 24th. Thanks so much for taking the time to vote for me!
