Should be fun.
I am most grateful to everyone who voted for me in the first round to get me officially nominated for the final round (so I guess I can call myself a "finalist", then). You guys rock and I really appreciate it. This is the first time I've been nominated for a blog award and I am unnaturally excited about it. I know - that is so wrong. Apocalypse nigh.
Of course, now, I need your help one more time. My nominations have been in the category Best Post on a South African Blog. If you visit the site you will see two items with the word "brainwavez" in the URL under that category - those are my articles. One is an article I posted on my group web site brainwavez.org (The Anti-Connoisseur's Guide To A Walk In The African Bush) and the other is a post on my blog (A Cultural Expedition To A Nearby Mall To Snap Photos Of Models In Swimwear).
Personally I favour the KwaZulu-Natal story but your choice is your choice. However, a concerted effort on one entry, rather than having the vote split between two, may* give me a better chance of winning (this is called applied mathematics because I have applied mathematics to something that isn't, on the surface, mathematical - it's a technique science and technology journalists such as myself employ to make our work "edgier").
Voting won't take too long, and I appreciate your support.
Let's win this! I might get to make a speech! (In public! With permission!)
*I say "may" because the voting process is über complicated.
(I had to say "über" once in my blog. This is that time. Bask!)
