Lifecruiser thanks for votes

Thank you all of you awesome friends that voted on Lifecruiser, YOU ROCKS! It will be remembered for a long time, warming our hearts in this dark wintertime…

I know that there were a lot of trouble to vote sometimes and that’s not good at all, but hey shit happens and it was a very big event with thousands of voters attacking the polls at the same time.

There were 526,974 votes cast in 45 categories. There was some really big differences in the amount of the votes - as it was in the blog styles.

1) Raymi The Minx 2281 (!)
2) Dooce 1379
3) Green Apple Martini 621

Lifecruiser ended up on seventh place in the Diarist category - or Diarrhist as I prefer to call me ;-) We’re very pleased with that result. Really. No bullshit.

There were 296 votes for a while, but we ended up with 226. They took 70 votes away from us, because they were from the same IP-adress. I noticed that even others had the same happening to them. Some supporter obviously got carried away - or if it was voters on a network with the same IP-address? (I know that several of our supporters have that).

I don’t know and I can’t say that I think that it’s matter since we weren’t in the lead. Though I found it interesting to see how this little ant stood us in the competition with the elephants :-)

There is always a lot of cheating, whining, accusations and argues around competitions, which is one of the reasons for why I normally don’t attend competitions at all.

Sure, I could suspect cheating in some cases, but since I’ve no proof I have to believe that they will be discovered by the Weblog Award team and if not, what can I do? It’s not the end of the world even though it’s always bad if cheaters get away with it. But that’s life.

I am however, very, very proud of being one of the finalists and getting that 296 votes is the very best, the most heartwarming in this whole competition. You actually love Lifecruiser. Wow. We love you too! ((hugs))


And thank you to the Weblog Awards team for all the work! The final, official results will be announced the 18th. They have to make sure that all the votes are valid first. What a hard work hah? Phew!

Nominations for The 2007 Weblog Awards will begin in September with voting at the end of October 2007 and the 2007 Weblog Awards will be hosted at the BlogWorld Expo 8-9 November 2007 in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Now THAT would be something I would be very interested in, going to Vegas! Not so much for the BlogWorld Expo, but to have a blast in Vegas! It’s on our wish-travel-list.

NOTE TO SELF: Must go there, another time, another year, with another wallet! *lol*

    Congratulations. Personally, I do not read the big ones because I don’t feel they write from the heart. I think they write generically. I love your blog because you share your life and your self with us. :grin:

    Lifecruiser: Thanks Maribeth. That really warmed our hearts. Yes, I agree with you there. Maybe they have been around too long and get a bit tired of blogging? I always think that they must have been really good at some point because people do link a lot to them.

    Lifecruiser: Thanks deb :-)


    I think you are a winner just by being nominated.

    Lifecruiser:Thanks ICL, you helped me a lot. Can you help me now too? I need help to be upstanding (not mr L luckily ;-) because I’m not quite well- again….. *sigh*

    I was a bit stunnd when I looked at the winner’s blog. A diarist???? Hmmm…. I wonder what definition they used. Still I think you did really well just to be nominated as a finalist. Congratulations.

    I am surprised that anyone could vote from the same IP address in the same 24 hours. I voted each day and a couple of times when I went to the link a bit early, I got the message that I’d already voted. But I also know that if people want to they can “cheat”, but goodness what a hollow victory that would be. I took a peep at those whining on the forum and thought that several of them seriously needed to get a life.

    Anyway, I think you are number one. :grin:

    Lifecruiser: Awww, tusen tack Marie. Yes, I know. I told you that there was very different blog styles :-) Obviously there is ways around so you can vote more than once. And some say something about scripts making the voting too. Well, I don’t like the discussions, I stayed away from the forums to not get involved and went there afterwards just to catch up a little.
