A Request For A Shorty Awards Nomination
Something a little bit different here at Top Finance Blog. There are these social media awards called the Shorty Awards that have people nominate them for awards in different social media categories and allow people to ask for others to nominate them. Voting ends on February 17th and there is one winner per category.
I’m asking to be nominated for a Shorty in the blogging category and the finance category.
You need to know my Twitter handle to nominate me, which is mitch_m. You also have to have a Twitter account to vote unfortunately, but that’s how they track things.
My general pitch for why I feel I deserve to be nominated is because I’ve written around 2,700 posts on 5 blogs, including just hitting a milestone of #1,200 on one of my other blogs. There are more than 500 posts on this blog.
I don’t expect to win a Shorty because I’m starting too late. The contest started on January 3 and runs through February 17th, so I’m already two weeks behind. The leader in the blogger category already has more than 9,000 votes, and the closest competitor is more than 4 times behind him. The leader in the finance category only has 164 votes though, and I’d love to finish in the top 10 of each category, and don’t feel that’s out of reach.
It’s a little self serving, but if you don’t ask… Vote me in for a Shorty; thank you very much! Next time we’ll get back to financial news, information and commentary again. 😉
