Singapore Blog Awards 2009

We interrupt our usual programming to bring you this announcement:

Sheylara is a finalist in the Singapore Blog Awards 2009 and needs your help to make her a winner!

If she’s a winner, that makes you a winner because you read her blog!

Yeah, I know, I know. I will not quit my day job to become a copywriter.

Wait, I don’t even have a real day job.

The Dark Knight interrogates the Joker (spoof)

Sundays are good days to watch online videos. You’re at home and you don’t have to worry about bosses lurking behind you, voyeuring your screen.

Here’s one for fans of The Dark Knight.

It’s freakishly hilarious. Make sure you’re in a safe place to laugh out loud. I salute the guys who made this video. Wish I could think of stuff like that. There’s some really excellent acting in there, too.

Sundays are also good days to engage in voting activities.

It only takes 20 seconds to type in your e-mail and password and click on my picture!

Vote for a chance to win exotic travel packages, how about that?

Vote for the Sometimes Damsel in Distress!

Thank you for your vote!

Sheylara woke up feeling a bit jaundiced.

I can has votes?

It’s getting quite stressful these days, being a blogger, what with blog awards and all that.

I mean, it’s a good thing, I can’t deny that. Everyone wants to be appreciated for what they do, and awards provide a chance for that to happen.

But having to canvass for votes is very stressful.

Worse, having to canvass for votes on a daily basis is like having to pull out all four wisdom teeth at once, and having them grow back the next day and having to do it all over again.

i can has votes?

You might say that I don’t have to actively solicit votes. If my blog is good enough, people will vote for me.

That is somewhat true, but not entirely.

I mean, look at politicians. They run around and give speeches and shake hands and smile a lot to get people to vote for them. It’s all part of the competition. It’s all part of the marketing. You have to let people know you before they even know to vote for you. Right?

If you don’t solicit votes, the competition will, anyway.

Thing is, I’m running for more than one award right now, which sort of complicates matters.

While I was feverishly trying to get all my friends and readers to vote for me daily in the S’pore Blog Awards without irritating the hell out of them, I received word that I’d been nominated for two Blog Awards.

The Blog Awards also requires daily votes.

If this goes on, my friends will all leave me for making them spend their lunch hour every day doing nothing but logging into various sites to vote for me.

That’s why I never mentioned the award until now. There’re only two days left to vote, so it’s not that bad, I guess.

If you feel like it, go down the list and vote for me for the various awards I’m up for.


Most Entertaining Blog (Omy S’pore Blog Awards)

Vote once a day till July 31.


Most Entertaining Blog ( Blog Awards)

Vote once a day till July 17.


Most Interactive Blog ( Blog Awards)

Vote once a day till July 17.


Regardless of outcome, I would like to thank the people who nominated me for all these awards. I don’t know who you are, but thank you very much.

I also want to thank everyone who has voted for me and is continuing to vote. Thank you for staying with me!

Now, I can has votes?

PS. I’m watching the premiere of The Dark Knight tomorrow at Lido! Can’t wait. The trailer looks damn good!
