The Charleston City Paper is having it's annual "Best of Charleston" poll now through January 23, 2012. The contest provides readers with the opportunity to go on-line and cast their votes for their favorites in several different categories. One of the categories being polled is "favorite local interest blog."
There are several reasons why I write From The Land of Palm Trees but recognition, the quest for awards and notoriety are not any of those reasons. I do however strive to publish a site that is fun to read and informative to anybody who might be interested in taking a glimpse into what life is like for a full time resident of a vacation destination like the Lowcountry. I have often said that a blog that doesn't have readers is hardly worth the effort, so I obviously want to do all that I can do to promote my efforts, and if that means that I need to shamelessly grovel to my readers and plead with them to log on here in order to vote for From The Land of Palm Trees, then well I will place my pride aside and beg.
In all honesty, there are so many GREAT blogs published by bloggers in Charleston. I list links to several of them on my site. I am inspired by all of them and I aspire to produce work that is fractionally as good as theirs. So having said that, I really don't expect that I will receive a lot of votes, but if you are a fan of From The Land of Palm Trees, and if you are so inclined, please go online and vote. Thanks a lot!
