Ballots on Broadway...Snark Style!

Not that Miss Snark would ever be so pedestrian as to actually solicit votes...
Killer Yapp: "what's wrong with being a pedestrian?? I walk all over the place."

but it has come to her attention that the flinty eyed folk at Preditors and Editors are running a vote-for-the-blog-that-has-been-of-help-to-you survey.

Well.
Not that Miss Snark would ever be so pedestrian as to solicit votes
Killer Yapp:"you said that already."

but, she IS on the ballot (fluffs hair)
and she IS on it twice (applies lip gloss)
and she's READY to assume the title of Miss America if us unable...
Killer Yapp: That's Miss America, and you aren't even Miss Congeniality. Sit! Stay!Give me one of the new Parisienne biscuits.

Well ANYWAY, here's the link to where you can vote for this blog if you'd like,
and another place to vote again.

To quote Mayor Daley, vote early, vote often.

And thank you, Miss Snark...you rock!

archer said...

I voted for you! And I took my Uncle Max and he voted for you, too. Even though he is dead.

We embroider pillows with that saying in Philadelphia. Already long done this stuff Miss Snark. I mean, the request is sooo five minutes ago.

What're you going to do when you make your Letterman appearance? Wear a paper bag over your head to hide your identity? Use one of those microphones that make you sound like Bob Dylan on a bad day? We'll know it's you. We'll recognize the stilettos.

Done and Done.

Miss Snark, I voted for you and I hope you win! But careful telling people to vote twice; they get your email address and I think it disqualifies the first vote.

pleased to accomodate
done and done

what do you win?

Christine said...

Already done. And my book "Talisman of Zandria" is up for best SF/F book. I'm holding my own at a tie for 10, but run on over and vote for me! LOL Uh, you can order the book while your at it. They make great gifts...

I'm not above trolling for votes :)

Kelly said...

I just voted, and so far, you're in the lead!

Miss Snark said...

green ray, despite ALL evidence to the contrary (and there's a lot of it) I don't actually want you to cheat..there are TWO categories.

I'm not sure what the prize is...a week in Philadelphia?

Sariah said...

I voted - and you're still in first place!

M. G. Tarquini said...

Right. Don't cheat. But if you were going to cheat, you could set up fifty fake gmail accounts to do so.

Miss Snark, a week in Philadelphia is second prize. The first prize is...you guessed it...a WEEKEND in Philadelphia.

I'm in! But where was Best Supporting Blogger category for Killer Yapp?

For you, Miss Snark, I hope the prize is a date with George Clooney!

Hey, if you don't win, I still hope you get to at least sniff Gorgie's nightie...

P.S. I'll cast my vote for freedom against tyranny! You go Miss Snarky...

Ballpoint Wren said...

Don't forget to nominate Miss Snark for the Bloggies, too.

Anonymous said...

The two links let you vote for Miss Snark in two different categories, so it's okay to click both of them.

The lovely, talented, and wholly admmirable Miss Snark is now the leading contender for one of the categories -- hurrah for Her Royal Snarkiness!

Snark University is the best blog on the web. My votes are in.

kathie said...

Voted for ya!

Dave Kuzminski said...

Category winners receive bragging rights only and a nifty GIF image they can post on their websites, if so desired.

Voters, on the other hand, are actually eligible for prizes. However, if they use fake IDs and we can't reach them, they don't get the prize.

Essentially, the Readers Poll is meant to stimulate reading and introduce new writers and publishers to online readers.

In the meantime, P&E thanks you all for participating.

Someone said But careful telling people to vote twice; they get your email address and I think it disqualifies the first vote.

There are two different polls.

kathie said...

As of 9:09 pm you are in first place in the voting...must feel good, huh? Maybe not as good as after a stiletto shopping spree and a nice pail 'o gin, but has to be close.

McKoala said...

Done, good luck.

M. G. Tarquini said...

Okay, okay, I didn't cheat! All right?

Um...how do voters get prizes, Dave?

a. m. burns said...

I voted. I voted again. Now if you need my Uncle Jimmy to deliver a horse's head, just say the word. Then again, why wouldn't an agent in Snarkling-skin boots win?

Seriously, (and I'm on one knee now with dramatic arm gestures) everyone appreciates all you've done! May your pail overflow.

S. W. Vaughn said...

Le vote, she is accomplished.

Keep your stilettos crossed; you're Number One!

-S

P.S. Today's word verification jumble o' nonsense is h-kabob. Sounds delish.

M. G. Tarquini said...

Okay, Ballpoint Wren, I voted in the bloggies, but I wasn't sure what category, so I chose a bunch of them.

Bonnie Calhoun said...

You got my vote!

Do you want to be mayor of NYC, too? After the Christmas you've had, I think I could drum up enough votes for ya'!

Susanne said...

Okay, Sista ... done.

the green ray said...

OK, Miss Snark, now I see the difference. I voted in the second category too. Love ya.

David Isaak said...

Hey, Dave Kuzminski--

A nice collection of resources, and a nice way to get folks to leaf through them.

P&E has been an invaluable resource for many of us over the years--just for the agent notes. But I now see that I've been neglecting an ocean of other goodies.

Keep up the good work.

Molly said...

Done! :)

Anonymous said...

Sorry, I split the ticket and gave Writer Beware a vote, too. For after all they did bag a scammer.

However, I do think your blog is the most fun on the internet these days.

Stay At Home Writer said...

You've got my vote, Miss Snark!

Tess said...

It seems we snarklings are voting in droves :-) I note you're leading in both categories!

Dave Kuzminski said...

Prizes are awarded to randomly drawn email addresses after which we delete all of those since email addresses are used only for verifying a legitimate voter and prize selection.

Renee said...

Hey, guys, where are you seeing the poll running totals? I couldn't see it on the website. Thanks.

Dave Kuzminski said...

http://www.critters.org/predpoll/tally.html posts the temporary results. The finals are posted in the P&E pages after the conclusion and the votes are all validated.

Southgrl said...

ILU, Miss Snark.
I voted 4u.
Thanks for the synopsis crits. Very informative. You da best!

Sha'el, Princess of Pixies said...

My latin is rusty. How does one say, "I went; I looked; I voted Snarkie"?

Rachel said...

Considering the number of times I've snorted Coke out my nose, I thought it only fair I throw in my vote. Besides, I had already voted for you in the 2006 Bloggie Awards. Along with myself, of course. After all, a sprinkle of overconfidence never hurt anyone - only anyone's readers.

Ballpoint Wren said...

M.Q.Tarquini: As I interpret the rules, you can nominate in multiple categories, so that's okay.

I think Miss Snark could qualify for any of the following:

Best American Blog

Best Tagline ("T.Rexual heels of stilletto snark" and all that)

Best Topical

Best Humorous (Her focus isn't on humor, but hey! She makes me laugh. So there.)

Best Writing

Best Kept Secret

Best New Weblog

The Green Cedar said...

Or as Walt Kelly's Pogo would have it...vote early, often and LOUD.

Looking forward to the acceptance speech.

ghostcatbce said...

My first post on this blog ever. Miss Snark is currently leading in both categories.

Anonymous said...

Sha'el, Princess of Pixies -- maybe it's veni, vidi, voti?

Joyce said...

Dear Ms Snark -

When I voted for you I found out I was nominated, too, in different categories.

So will you vote for me, now that I've voted for you?

Thank you, as always, for your keen insights.
