Vote For Me... Pretty Please

Probably half the blogs I've perused today have plugs for the Canadian Blog Awards (CBA). Apparently voting has begun so people are looking for support. So I decided to throw my support behind some blogs and when I got to 'Best Progressive Blog' category, I was pleasantly surprised to see that my blog was listed. Lil 'ol Random Noise was amongst the nominees. So in a futile, yet vain, pursuit, I am also going to ask people go vote for me because the Lord knows, if I'm going to get out of the first round, I need all the support I can get. There are too many actually good blogs (Dr. Dawg, April Reign, Jim Bobby, The Galloping Beaver, Dymaxion World, Apply Liberally, etc.) in there for me to even be a consideration or contender and have more than just there mom (Hi, mom!) read their blog.
