Vote for the Best Just Posts of 2009!

March 15, 2010

in this i believe

First of all, an apology…

.

Now on to official business…

Alejna over at Collecting Tokens and Holly at Cold Spaghetti host a monthly feature called “Just Posts for a Just World“: monthly roundtables of blog posts written on personal blogs that, in words of one of the founders, “speak to the same thing – the lifting up of our planet and all that inhabit it.” Anybody is welcome to submit a blog post that “reflects or informs others on social justice issues” to the panel. Posts included in the past have come from bloggers that I have come to know and love and who are also frequent visitors here: Amber, Mary Lee and Velva.

After much sorting and reviewing and evaluating, the Just Posts panel has finally decided on the nominees for the Best of 2009 Just Posts. This is a collection of some of the best blog posts on social justice issues that you could conveniently find all in one place. Please if you have time (ha ha ha I know…) do check out the posts, and vote for your favorites if you wish.

Now regarding the someecard I posted at the beginning… one of my posts, All things on cable TV considered, I wish my hotel had porn… is nominated for the Humor category. This post however is not a plea to buy your votes. I really believe that if you have found value in my blog, for sure you would appreciate the posts nominated for this award. I am really honored to be included in the company of such wonderfully-written and well-argued posts. And I am going to proudly display the button here. Peace out!

LOL. You are so silly. But this brings back childhood memories of people running for political offices walking down the street with loudspeakers going, “Please please give me your vote” while giving out MSG… 😉

A very deserving award indeed! Keep ’em coming! :)

I’m over here so much, I expect your children to be calling me Grandma soon. :)

I love your blog and your perspectives; you are so fair-minded . . . and I think the Just Posts for a Just World is one of those things that makes the world a little better. What better mix? ! You’ve got my vote!

Excellent. On my way to go vote right now. Also, thanks for the tip…after listening to the news this morning, I could use some “lifting up” of the planet.

Thanks! And you didn’t even need to have a torid affair with me. 😉

subWOW March 16, 2010 at 6:43 am

And the title for your latest post? Intriguing! Just read on Let’s Have a Cocktail that a professor was fired for stating on her FB jokingly that she wanted to murder her students. LOL. So watch out! 😉

Wicked Shawn March 16, 2010 at 12:45 pm

Well, I did qualify by stating “just a little”

I just voted for you – congrats on the nomination! As a bonus, I hadn’t read that blog posting before – it was just what I needed to brighten my day (especially the Sara Palin humor at the end – that shit never gets old!).
