I received this from Chris Holt in Windsor:
OK, it's time for Windsor to ask for a hand. We've been nominated for the coveted "Best New Blog" award from the Canadian Blog Awards, and we need your help in securing our survival in the first round of voting!
It won't take a minute. Head on over to http://cdnba.wordpress.com/vote/round-1/ and under the category of General Blogs, under Best New Blog vote for Windsor Greens blog, Entitled "Scale Down."
(As an aside you can also vote for Glen Hubber's blog under Best Progressive Blog. Over the next few days I'll post additional GP members who have blogs nominated.) -- now back to Chris' email:
No, there's no monetary prize for the winner, just the ability to proclaim on our site that we are, indeed, worthy of an award. Believe it or not, this will help us expand our audience and reach new readers. Merited or not, an award such as this will lend credibility to our work and help us expand our reach.
Keep an eye out at www.scaledown.ca for some exciting new developments. We have been working hard over the holidays preparing for a new-and-improved Scale Down. You will be receiving an invitation to our big Launch Party very soon, and hear all about the direction we're heading and the new avenues we are pursuing. You will also have the opportunity to come and hear a keynote address by an internationally acclaimed author who just so happens to espouse the same values and virtues as Scale Down.
Piqued your interested? Stay tuned for more information...
