Apparently, Kara’s caught her a cold. Nothing serious. One of those little bugs that catches you off guard. Sniffle, sneeze, wheeze….but, no worries. While she recovers on her couch she took to looking up how well I was doing in the Martha Stewart American Made Audience Choice Awards.
Now, you can imagine how elated I’ve felt watching the votes break 3,000…YAY! But, then I talked to Kara, who informed me on her search that I was way behind. How far behind? Well, in the craft category, the top votes are in a range between 20,000 and 30,000. Yeah. But, the good news is there are only 2 or 3 of them. Then you drop down a few votes, down to about 20 slots and there I am.
If all of my follows were to vote, I’d be able to get to the top. I could! 3,000 followers, all allowed to vote 6 times at once, would yield me 18,000 more votes. 18,000! And yes, I YEARN to get the BIG prize of $10,000, but even getting into the top 6 slots gets me a spread in the magazine. And I could use that. I mean, I could USE that so much. Fellas that knit don’t get the sort of credit ladies do. That’s just a fact. But, even more so, the idea that we’ve all been pursuing this whole time is that when life hands you lemons, you throw them aside and knit teddy bears.
So, go vote!!! You get to vote 6 times a day. Takes all of 30 seconds to go click click click click click…..DONE!
