Last Call for the Blogger’s Choice

Though it might seem to be the Contest That Never Ends (we did, after all, first post about this back in early May), voting in the Blogger’s Choice Awards is at last coming to a close.

Winners are to be announced November 10th. We’ve been nominated for Best Corporate Blog, and after all these many months we’re holding our own in fourth place, which is great but not quite enough to crack the Top Three where all the action is.

So, to indulge in a small amount of shameless self-promotion, if you’ve got a spare moment or two and want to help your favorite blog to a seat a limelight head over here and cast your vote for inspiration. It’s a stress-free process. Just click the little gold “vote” button under our current “total votes” tally. A quick registration and an e-mail later and you’re a voter. Don’t know if we can beat giants like Southwest Airlines and Google, who probably gave their respective staffs of thousands the day off to vote repeatedly, but it’s worth a try.

Use Your Vote to Enhance Our Self-Esteem

In case you missed this hot in-house news item… If you’ll look to the immediate left here, in the Captivating Column of Divinely Inspirational Thingamabobs (apologies for the technical jargon), you’ll see up top there that (cue thunderous applause and raucous cheering)...

That's right. The Inspired Protagonist has been nominated for the Blogger’s Choice Award for Best Corporate Blog. Now I know it’s a honor just to be nominated. But if nominations are an honor, what's it like to win? Let’s find out, shall we?

To do that, you guys are going to have to vote because that’s the way this one works: whosoever gets the most votes from their adoring public wins. There are no judges. No juries. Just a ballot box stuffed as full as we can all conceivably get it. So when you’ve got a second or two, head over to the Blogger’s Choice Awards and cast your vote for inspirational protagonism. It’s pretty simple. Just click the little gold “vote” button under our current “total votes” tally. A quick registration and an e-mail later, and you’re in. A couple of clicks after that, and you’re there. Enough clicks and we win. It’s simplicity itself.

Right now we’re #4 with a bullet and just three votes from the number #3 position. Currently, it looks like Google and Southwest Airlines are rallying the troops to maintain the number one and two spots, but they’re not nearly as inspired as we are. Let’s show ‘em how it’s done.

Housekeeping Notes

Here's a quick housekpeeing note for everyone, which I thought to post because there have been some issues lately...

Like most blogs, ours gets a ton 'o spam. To prevent messages concerning carnal acts with amphibians (I swear I'm not making that up), cheap fake drugs, women's shoes, and other uninspiring subjects from overrunning the comment sections of the Inspired Protagonist, we have spam filters in place that filter this stuff out. They work pretty well, but occasionally they also snare a legitimate comment. If that happens to one of your posted comments, it won't immediately show up on the site. Instead, it'll get sent to a purgatorial queue where it will sit until we can manually verify that it's a real comment from a real person and not an ad for performance enhancing groin medicines.
