Whine! And Cheese! I’m in the Semmy’s, so vote dammit
Ian Lurie Jan 21 2009
OK people, it’s time to put up or shut up.
I’ve come in second in landing page competitions. I’ve gotten my butt kicked in the Shorty Awards. I got thumped repeatedly in the Webbys and was summarily flushed down the toilet in public at last year’s SearchBowl.
I’m always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Or, in some cases, I’m the turd the bridesmaid steps in and says “ewwwwwwwwww”.
Regardless, suffice it to say, I feel unloved.
So now that I’ve got two posts nominated for SEMMY awards, I’m asking, where’s the love, people?
If you really care, when voting opens you can vote. Repeatedly. Well, once and then ask all your friends. Seriously people, if I don’t win something this time I’m going to feel so down and out I’ll likely do something crazy. Like wear pants that aren’t a solid color, or let my kids watch more than an hour of TV. I’m talking TOTAL CHAOS HERE.
So keep an eye on the Semmys site and VOTE!
I’m nominated for an LOL Funny and an industry article.
In a few days I’ll come back to tell you how to vote.
Seriously people, I’m a Jew on the edge.
