8:48 am - Project Food Blog, Round 3...........
just a little shameless begging from my other blog, Orange & Salt......please take a second and vote for me? i hate to beg, but i also hate to lose. they are whittling the group down from 200 to 100, and there were many 'fancier' entries in this challenge than mine, but i don't want to lose because someone had matching dinnerware and flowers on the table and a tablecloth and i, uhh, don't have any of those things. but i put damn good food on the table. let's flood this thing with votes, shall we?? come on, lj! help a girl out. i'll dedicate my cookbook to all of you when this is all over. :)

* * * * * *

Just a reminder, voting for Round 3 of Project Food Blog ends TODAY, October 7th, at 6 pm PDT! Pleeeeeeease, Orange & Salt readers, if you haven't had a chance to already, click this link and vote for me by pressing the little red heart. That's it! Easy. I'm a little nervous with the competition getting steeper... this round and am hoping not to be knocked out of the race by someone who has a prettier blog font than me, or who decorated a fancier table than I did. If I lose, I at least want to lose on FOOD. And the food, let me tell you, was pretty spectacular. Oops, may I say so myself? Ha ha.

So, if you want to see more PFB2010 posts in this space, vote vote vote!!!

I'm paperthinwalls and I approve this message. Thank you for your support. ;)

readers, i have entered a contest!

i am competing against nearly 2,000 other food bloggers for a shot at an awesome prize. here's my first entry in the 'Project Food Blog' contest! the prompt was 'create a blog post that defines you as a food blogger and makes it clear why you think you have what it takes to be the next food blog star.' i think it's clear that I'm a star, ha ha. ;)

please, please, please, if you get the chance, click this link and vote for me--you have to sign up with foodbuzz, but it's free and it takes about thirty seconds. this first round of eliminations is potentially the scariest, because... they are whittling down the number of contestants from nealy 2,000 to 400! the odds, uhhhh, kind of scare me.

........do i need this t-shirt??

........YES YES I DO!!

p.s. - obviously i am too lazy to change all of my old, best beloved 'wednesday' LOST icons to read 'tuesday.' and in any case, in a few more months, it won't matter. so just imagine they all say tuesday. ;)
