Pleasant surprise: my Bubbles Underwater & Beyond are selected for the 2011 ELLE Bloggers Grand Prix, in the Travel category! It's up to you to vote, by clicking on the little heart, until December 2nd.
Vote until December 2
It's nice, I admit. I did not ask for anything, I did not register anywhere. But SHE selected me for her 2011 Bloggers' Grand Prix.
It was by an e-mail received on Tuesday that I learned that my Bubbles Underwater & Beyond were among the 10 blogs chosen in the Travel category. Not very proud.
The vote of Internet users counts, in the final choice of the jury. If you like Bubbles Underwater & Beyondyou are therefore urged, dear readers, to click on the banner below, then on the little heart in the page that will open:
The system is not very practical: you must then validate your vote, by clicking again in the link we receive by e-mail. (By the way, they are building up a huge mailing file, at SHE.)
We can only vote once a day. Normal.
But what biases the thing is that there can only be one voter by IP address ... I realized at the office. Some of my colleagues, well-intentioned and ready to click (too cool), saw the message: "You have already voted today. Yes, all computers share the same connection ...
Well, that said, you who do not rub with me, you have the right to click every day, from home or work, until December 2!
I am not a beast to contest
In truth, I am not particularly the type to run for blogging contests. I do not like asking for clicks all the time ...
Of course, I'll do a little stimulus on Facebook and Twitterbut not too much either. It pollutes the walls, begging for votes, like that. And then it can annoy, in the long run.
Nevertheless, after Glamour and Marie Claire in 2009 and then the Info Cup in 2010, this blog will end up posing as a contest beast ... Even if, by not wanting too much to ask for clicks, I have the art to finish eternal second!
This time, as in Marie Claire, maybe I can hope to finish at the top of my category, namely Travel. But the jury's final choice will probably be on a Beauty, Fashion or Cooking blog ... We're at home SHE, anyway. I do not care a bit, at the same time. I am already very happy to think that this competition should make it possible to discover Bubbles Underwater & Beyond to new readers.
As for the lots (Olympus compact cameras), I confess that they do not fascinate me especially, since I am already more than very well equipped with my Canon Eos 7D and some valuable goals. In fact, the idea of being in the SHE December 23 tickle me much more, I admit ...
But I will not sulk my pleasure. I play the game! From where this post and this call to the clicks ... To your good heart, gentlemen-ladies! (And I'll take you back to Indonesia in the next article, promised.)
