Guess What?!?!?

Guess what?!?!? You can totally vote for me! Do it! Do it now! Vote early, vote often!

Ok, you probably want to know why you can/should/must vote for me.  Here is the story:

Some of my three readers find me a decent writer and amusing to boot.  I appreciate that because, well, I like doing it and I am trying to be funny.  It would be bad if I wasn't trying to be funny and they were saying I was funny, but that's not the case so it's good.  Got it? Ok.

Since I'm amusing to a few people who I know, I wanted to branch out and get my blog noticed by more people.  I'm hoping to get a small following.  Maybe someday I can write a book about all of this and my kids can die of embarrassment hate me forever reminisce about their childhood.  FWIW, the kids find me amusing right now and don't mind anything I've posted about them.  When I say, "this is going on my blog."  They respond with, "YES!!," like they just won the lottery or get extra ice-cream.

To get that bigger audience, I applied to Top Mommy Blogs.  I was nervous and apprehensive.  Their email said that they get lots of applications, have a waiting list, won't hear back for up to 14 days, blah, blah, blah.  I figured it was worth a shot so I applied on Monday.

I received an email TODAY saying I was accepted! Woohoo, I'm published! And not my silly thesis about entomology/precision farming that took me years to research and longer to write.  Or a preposterous article in a peer-reviewed journal or a ridiculous paper in a conference proceedings based on my research.  No, this is REALLY published! People get to read about my life and laugh.  They get to feel better about their own failings after seeing mine.  They get their day brightened by a smile.  That's what it's all about :)

So, if you want to help me out on this journey, what you do is click on the Top Mommy Blogs icon over on the right side-bar.  Or click here. Doing that gives me votes.  When I get enough votes, I get a pet dragon! Ok, no, I don't get a dragon.  I wish I got a dragon.  What I get instead is to get better placement if I get more votes.  Then more people see me and I get more votes.  And then more people see me and I get more votes.  And then...well, you see where this is going, right?

You can vote once every day so start clicking everyone! Otherwise I'll never get that dragon.

ETA: There has been some confusion.  All you have to do is click and go to the page.  You don't have to vote or anything once you arrive.  If you wanted to browse around and read, that would be great, but not necessary.
