Please vote in the Blogger’s Choice awards!

(Unashamed plug:) Please click the “This blog was nominated for a Blogger’s Choice Award” button in the inside sidebar (just to the right at top), and vote for this blog in the two categories it’s running in: Best Health Blog and Best Blog About Stuff.

It’s a great help if you vote in both categories, since they’re totally separate. You will have to register, but it just takes a minute and you need not opt in to mailing lists.
We’re late to the race, but if everyone goes over there and votes, we could catch up.

Why should you bother? Well, of course, I hope you think we are the Best Health Blog, and the Best Blog About Stuff, that you know of. (If we are, you’re a big part of the reason why!)

But much more importantly, the contest offers publicity not just for the site, but for the issue of bed bugs. We talk about raising awareness all the time. This is your chance to help in a tangible way to raise awareness about bed bugs.

As of this moment, we need 31 votes to get on the first page of Health blogs, and 172 to be in the lead. For Blogs about Stuff, we need 51 votes to get on the front page, and 246 to win.

Thanks for your help!

I just voted twice, with two different email addresses! Go Bedbugger!

Thanks S and Doug– 4 votes now. Long way to go, but every vote helps! 🙂

Hey Nobugs, how come the blog looks different in the little image that the contest mascot is holding? Is there a new template in the works?

4 nobugsonme April 30, 2007 at 2:57 pm

Hi S,
Not just now. That was a template I used briefly between the last one (people running from bed bugs) and this one. As you may remember, the template was going all screwy in internet explorer, so I switched to this one, still transitional.
So their screenshots are 5 weeks old. I asked them to update, so we’ll see.

I voted for BOTH!
hint: registering was easy and then just enter “bedbugger” into the search box in order to find it and cast your vote(s) quickly

I voted too! We’re up to six…

Nobugs and everyone else, CONGRATS for the nomination!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Jess…Willow here—we’ve never spoken.
I agree CONGRATS and I feel we all need to vote! I rarely vote on anything, but I took the five minutes. BTW– This is my first blog, but I’ve dropped into a few others for a sec: Point–some of the names of these blogs on the vote-a-blog site alone are like wow! (As in … scary wow!)
We all need to vote! It’s the equivalent of self care. After all, look at what some of us have done in the name of the blog but all well intended for the good of the health of the other bloggers as well as the demise of the bug. Some of us are going all out to attempt to organize in a time when we have not yet enough people; some take out time to help new people get through the first week(s); I went into extreme detail on just possible theories in genetics, lab breeding, possible ideas for traps and new sprays—all of it very taxing to my mind as it is a stretch of my own awareness on these types of topics.
So in voting for the blog I voted for myself. I “congratulated” myself for caring enough for my fellow man, overall but also especially for the sufferers already afflicted and affected (with the bed bug).
this bog canbe a great support: Becasue of bugs … I have no viable T.V. etc … not that T.V. isvery viable literally or figratively.
Anyway hello jess.

It’s true, Willow. A vote for the blog is like a vote for ourselves.

9 nobugsonme May 1, 2007 at 11:23 am


We’re up to 10 votes for Blogs about Health now, and 8 for Blogs about Stuff. Please remember– if you do vote, you can vote in both categories. Just click the second button from this site (top, inner sidebar).

Thanks for your votes and for spreading the word about the site and bed bugs.

oh the two, black, flat, rectangular (non-globular) buttons right above the search-box???

11 jessinchicago May 1, 2007 at 2:57 pm

Hey Willow-

Yes, congrats to all who participate- you all deserve a round of applause.


12 S May 1, 2007 at 4:57 pm

Yes, Willow. The ones that say “This blog was nominated for a Blogger’s Choice Award.”

13 willow-the-wisp May 1, 2007 at 5:18 pm

I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to click it–or flick it. Clarification is always best!
I don’t know why … but I still think we are on last Saturdays Blog “topic.”
OHHH! That was problaby non-rhetorical
