Favor FAVE

by Rachel on February 24, 2011

So you remember when I talked about how I never win anything? But I still continue to enter contests anyway? (And then subsequently did not even make it to Round #2 in the contest this was in reference to? Even though my entry was pretty fun??)

But you know I’m an eternal optimist.

Another contest has come my way in which I might actually stand a fighting chance. It’s the Women’s Health Magazine “Blogs We Love” contest that’s going on right now. They are taking nominations for blogs to add to their blogroll and I’d really like to bring some fun material to this competition.

So if you like my blog, and you have a second, I’d be eternally grateful if you nominated me! You don’t have to sign up or log in — just head to their site, type in my URL, and write a sentence or two about why you like my blog. It’s just a nomination, not a vote, so you only have to do it once and then can go back to your lunch, or sexting, or your TiVo, or whatever.

You have to choose a category when you nominate me in; it’s up to you what you choose, but I think “Sex & Relationships,” “Humor & Fun,” or just “Other” would be the best choice. To be honest, I’d just like to avoid health, fitness, weight loss, and nutrition, because I think there are far better blogs in that category than mine. However, you can nominate as many blogs as you’d like, so while there, you could also nominate my go-to blog for all of those topics — YourNutritionista.com. I nominated Leah in “Nutrition” this morning because I think she’s the best on that stuff!

Like I said, my sense of humor never seems to get me anywhere in competitions, but Women’s Health Magazine isn’t prissy and has a tone that I like a lot, so I’m crossing my fingers that they’ll like my tone and that this one is The One!

Actually did this 10 minutes ago before I read your post. I saw the link on another blog and then nominated yours! I went with humor & fun. Good luck!

Totally just did it too! I’ve gone through a lot of blogs in the past few months and yours is one of 3 that I’ve stuck with. You 1) are an INCREDIBLE writer and 2) I’m in love with your personality. Good luck!

I’ve actually never commented before, but when I heard about this a few days ago the first thing I did was nominate you (and I’m usually far too lazy to participate in these things). This is definitely the blog that I look forward to reading the most every morning!

Voted! I definitely know what you mean about comedy always losing to drama. I’m doing a story-telling show and I can’t compete with some of the performers and their epic tragedies. I really only have White Girl Problems. At least they’re funny?

Done and done… I think you’ll win, just by my description alone. “She isn’t afraid to admit that she is kind of a big deal. Read her blog and get ready to literal-LOL”

Not that I am narcissistic or anything!

On it. If you aren’t on the blogroll, I’m happy to go fight anyone necessary. I’m kinda scrappy…

24 Mel February 24, 2011 at 4:52 pm

Obvs bobs! I have been trying to nominate you all morning (because the link keeps popping up) but I couldn’t figure out what category to put you in because I think you elude most categories! Thanks for clarifying now :)

Done!

Done – am keeping fingers and toes crossed for you… you’re 100% a daily must-read!

27 Triz February 24, 2011 at 7:07 pm

So I guess everyone has to vote for you for the same category? (Really not sure how this works). Sex and relationships you certainly do great blogs about …

Reply

28 Triz February 24, 2011 at 7:18 pm

But you write great advice / blogs about health generally and eating also. And even tech! Still, I guess just go with S&R from the comments above?

Reply

29 Rachel February 24, 2011 at 7:45 pm

I really don’t think it matters too much! So whatever you think…I am down with “other”!

30 Erin February 24, 2011 at 8:31 pm

Done!

I wasn’t a “rules” kind of girl – until I read your rules. You – and this blog – are kind of wicked awesome and I find myself thinking of your blog and “Rachel-isms” all the time. Don’t be ridiculous, Women’s Health, Rachel belongs on your blog roll.

I was so happy to nominate you and hope you add “Blogs We Love” to your list of accomplishments! I never miss checking in and am enamored by your writing style and sense of humor.

Good luck, Rach!

36 Pantea February 26, 2011 at 11:07 am

Good luck! I nominated you too, but in the ‘humor and fun’ category. Hope that’s ok!
