|I received an update today from the website on which I am competing for a $100 gasoline card this month for one of my previous entries. This entry is simply a begging entry, nothing more.
Please do all that you can before February 28th to help us win that $100. Apparently the website has a control so that a person can only vote once per computer used. I don't know if it limits votes to once per email address if a second computer is used, but certainly if you, your friends or your family members can register from another computer using another email address, then please go for it. I don't want to encourage anything unfair or unethical, but I do want to encourage everything I can within those boundaries.
I've copied the explanation about the voting process from the previous entry. Now, please do all that you can to help us!!!!!!.....THANKS!!!!!!
"You remember an entry or two ago I said something about a coming opportunity for you to help our expenses a bit?? Well, that opportunity has now ripened.
I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by the owner of Road Trip Journal, a new website dedicated to advancing the pleasures of travel. In her email, she was asking my permission to enter one of my past entries in what her website was calling “Readers Choice Awards”.
Each month she selects a past entry from each of five blogs, or journals, & then asks readers to choose their favorite from the five. My entry titled “Mumfordville, Kentucky”, dated October 2, 2008 is amongst the February contenders.
How can you help me? Simple!!!! Go to the Road Trip Journal website , (http://www.roadtripjournal.com/monthly-survey), read the five entries as you deem appropriate & then vote for your favorite.
You can see each of the five blog entries by clicking on them as listed on that page. You vote by clicking where it says “Enter The Survey Here” to the upper right of the five listings & then selecting your preferred entry ( :) :) wink, wink).
What’s in it for me?? If my entry is the top vote-getter during February, I win a $100 gas card!!!
What’s in it for you?? By voting, you register yourself to win a second $100 gas card!!!
Many of you have written to express your enjoyment of this journal. I very much appreciate each & every such expression; I will very much appreciate each & every vote that you cast to help with our expenses. Don’t be bashful about asking family & friends to also cast votes for their favorite entry (you might want to explain how much you have enjoyed this journal over the past almost three years).
Hopefully I can catapult this into a larger opportunity to financially benefit beyond the February $100 gas card.
Thanks for being a reader, thanks for supporting us in all of the ways that you do."
