I hate popularity contests. Really and truly. I kinda just opted out in high school and went to an arts school instead. So I'm not good at asking for this or marketing myself or whatever. But, it turns out that I'd like to win this Wedding Channel Contest thing. Not for the popularity (which skeeves me out a bit, and I'm not really looking for validation) and not for the competitive aspect (I get the sense that my blog is really different than the other blogs in my category, so I'm not comparing myself to them) but because my wedding budget would really appreciate it. Really and truly. Also, I love the written word and I'd like to think that smart words still matter, even in the photo-heavy wedding world. So, if you agree at all, I'd really appreciate it if you voted again. And, per my mother (who has been obsessively voting since last Friday. Hi Mom!) apparently you get one vote every four hours.Voting ends tomorrow at 11:59 EST.
I'm in second place right now and, even if I don't win, I am so grateful and overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and voting and amazing personal feedback I've already received from all of you. So thank you. This entire experience has been amazing.
