Hey there. You may be a loyal reader, or you may have just stopped in for the day. But I am going to lay it on the line for you: I’m asking a quick favor.
I hate to bother you with this, but I am going to make a shameless plea for votes. We have 13 votes for Best Blog About Stuff and 16 votes for Best Health Blog. To put it in perspective, the frontrunner in Health has 344 votes as of this post, and the About Stuff frontrunner has over 700.
Voting is anonymous–you can use a pseudonym. You need to go to one of the links above and register to vote and vote, then go to the other link to vote. Yes, you should go back and do each one separately, assuming of course, that you love us.
Because it raises awareness about bed bugs: when people see our site getting votes, they will visit the site and it will raise their awareness about the problem. Even if they only pop in for a moment, they will see the latest news posted, and their awareness will increase. They may even have their interest piqued and poke around a bit. Most of all, they will know we are here if they ever need us.
Because the site helped you: I sure hope it does!
Because you’re here: we get up to 1000 different visitors (who read about 4000 pages on the site per day–that’s right, the average visit is four separate pages; some people arrive and read 30 different pages in one go). On any given day, 70% of those 1000 people are first-time visitors. Only one or two of those visitors will comment on the blog, and maybe 10 on the forums. But many of you will find something useful here. So please: give back!
Even if it seems silly, let’s win these awards, Bedbuggers. I don’t want it for the glory, and there’s no monetary prize.
But let’s get Bedbugger.com out there and let people know we exist.
It takes only 2 minutes, and you can be totally anonymous.
