I have been nominated for a Texas Social Media Award. Wanna help me win?

By
Real Estate Agent with Austin Texas Homes, LLC 453249

QUICK NOTE: A couple of people suggested that I re-post this one, since it wasn't up for very long before it was bumped down by a featured post that I wrote.  I am not taking any points at all this time around.  Just want to get additional support from my AR friends!

The Austin American-Statesman (our local paper) recently created the Texas Social Media Awards, and I was pleased and flattered to have been nominated!  There are 125 nominees, and the judges will be choosing the Top 25 and announcing this "short list" on February 18th.  I also see this as another potential burst of exposure for ActiveRain, since most of the nominees are not in the real estate industry, so they are not members here.

What would I actually win if selected?  Great question!  According to the official site:

Each person on that list will be recognized by the Statesman with an award, a badge for that winner's blog and free tickets to a bash that we're throwing around the same time as South by Southwest (these awards are not affiliated with SXSW). An overall winner will be named at that time, too.

Here's where you can help.

Since they are taking the comments into consideration for each nominee, I would love it if you took a minute to stop by and leave a couple of remarks here about my social media/social networking involvement:

In other words, the comments that will matter are those left at the URL above.  Of course, you can feel free to comment here, too!

 

I don't want to give too much prompting with regard to the comments, but you could mention any or all of these topics:

  • My blog here on AR
  • Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
  • My BlogTalkRadio show ("Twitter Tuesday") - http://blogtalkradio.com/jckc
  • Any help that I have provided for you in the social media/online realm

Unfortunately, I can't offer you a proper bribe at the moment, but please know that I greatly appreciate any kind remarks that you are willing to leave at the link provided above. 

I don't know what my actual chances are of winning the whole thing, but I would love to make it into the Top 25!

Thanks so much for your time and support.  Have a great day!

Jason - I saw your name on the list when they were announced.  I was excited for you.  I don't think its right to double vote so I'll keep from commenting on there...but I do wish you the best of luck and certainly think you're one of the people that deserve it!

Alexsandra - Thanks so much for your comment over there!

Melissa - I hope you get a chance to visit the site and leave some remarks.  Thanks!

Don - Feel free to leave a comment in support of my nomination if you feel led to do so.  Thanks, buddy.

Matt - It's funny that you say that, because one guy left me a comment and told me that he was leaving comments for two other people as well (one of whom was his brother, I think).  I don't think there are any rules against it, but I understand either way.

Larry - Thanks in advance for doing this for me!

William - Not sure if you made it by the site or not, but I didn't see your comment there yet.  Just FYI -

JER - There won't be any announcements for a couple of weeks, when I will find out if I made it to the Top 25.  Sorry I lost you on Skype - my monitor died!

I don't remember if this was the post, but one of yours disappeared when I tried to comment on it, a few days ago. I thought maybe you had taken it down for some reason.

Missy - I'm not sure exactly who started it, but it was someone on staff at the Austin American-Statesman, since all of the judges work there.  I also thought it was really interesting.

Jason - I am having trouble getting on the site to leave a comment.  If I click on the link in your blog, it takes forever and then it times out.  Also, copy the link, and it will not open.  Is anyone else having problems?

You are going in so many creative and out of the box directions.  Best wishes to you.  Can't keep up with you -- or maybe I will just have to see what you are up to on twitter,

Margaret - I re-posted this one, since it was bumped down by a featured post.  Since it wasn't up very long, I wanted to promote it again, but I didn't feel right about taking the points twice.  I did it myself.  Thanks for your comment on the awards page!
