Best of Charleston

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!


  1. Say I vote for you. What's in it for me?

  2. @Rick- I dunno, maybe one of those little minature bottles of whiskey? My advice, vote for your own blog, it is wonderful. Although I never realized you were a teenage stoner.

  3. I just realized what you meant by stoner. Nope, we were just the common garden variety of drunk.
