*Takes a Bow*

A big thanks to everyone who voted for me when I was chosen to be one of the nine finalists in Jaimie's "I'm Gaga for Gaga Contest." The competition was fierce to say the least. The poll was closed today & CaitlynRenee is the winner, so congrats to her! But Jaimie has decided that she's giving out a runner up prize as well. Thanks Jaimie! You really shouldn't have taken the trouble.. you're too kind. I'm just really happy that so many people supported me.. that can be my prize, haha.

Seriously though, I would like to clear the air a bit.

Since I've just been blogging for a week or so, I have been promoting my blog. & after I posted my contest entry I promoted it even more. All my friends knew about this contest & they asked people that they knew to vote for me as well. It's my first week blogging & my first time as a finalist, so maybe I got a bit too excited. It's a public poll on a public blog though, so that shouldn't be a problem. & spreading the word is so easy now with all the technologies around (like Drew Barrymore mentions in He's Just Not That Into You: getting rejected by 7 different technologies can be exhausting. Of course I had to add that in there, but continuing with what I was saying...). Voting online doesn't take that much effort at all, so anyone can see why someone who promotes something a lot will end up with a lot of votes, right? That's all I'm going to say about this. Although, it makes me wonder how hard politicians have to campaign. This was hard enough!

Thanks once again to everyone who voted for me. Without your help I wouldn't have come this far (& by that I mean really far). Jaimie, thanks for having this great contest & offering me a prize.

Congrats on winning.

About the polling - if everyone knew about promoting yourself outside the blog world and did it as well, I say fair enough for everyone.
That's my gripe about polls - it's pretty unfair in that sense.
Other than that, no harm in what you did and you all deserved the recognition.

Congrats again. :]

Thanks Celly. Your contest sounds like so much fun too. I might enter that. Hope it's not a poll this time!
