Mai pals thank you all so so much for all of the nominations for the Shorty Awards, just in case you do not know what these awards are for they are kinda like the Oscars on twitter.
"The Shorty Awards honor the best people and organizations on Twitter. These unique awards are for the Twitter community, by the Twitter community. Online voting is public and democratic, culminating in an awards ceremony that recognizes the winners in 27 official categories as well as those in brand new crowd-sourced ones."
They are not like some of the contests where people who were clever with a PC could set bots up to vote 24 hours a day. These guys are actively watching out for any dubious activity, they are legit and the winners get invited to an awards event in New York.
I was so pleased for the whole of the animal community on twitter when you guys got me to be one of the five finalists, but the contest is not over yet!
In order to stay in the game we need to be in the Top 5 on Friday, January 29, 2010 at 11:59:59 pm Pacific time so please please continue to ask your friends to nominate me.
You can vote for as many people as you like in as many different categories, but your vote only counts once ( as far as I can tell by the rules) so to keep me in with a chance of winning, you guys need to get your pals who have not already voted to vote for me.
Of course I would be thrilled to win, but even to stay in the top 5 until the closing date would help highlight the wonderful work that we do every month for animal charities all over the world. Something which is only possible because of your tremendous support, caring and love that you have all given right from the start almost a year ago.
So while it is not cool to beg, I do it with all of the best intentions, help me get there so that we can continue this great challenge to change the world for animals one paw at a time.
Here is the link to take you straight to the page to vote for me @frugaldougal
While you are there why not show your support for two other great pals of the PawPawty events, @bztat and @zackrabbit
Thank You all so so much from the bottom of my doggie heart.
