Help Me Win This

imageSo, last week I spent a lot of time asking for your vote to get through the first round of Kidmin Blog March Madness, and you guys made it happen.  For that, I want to say thank you.  We’re now in the second round with the top four blogs from each region.  There are some real heavy hitters and networkers included in the field, so I need all the help I can get.  It also turns out that the winner gets a new Ipad 2.  There were clues and hints about it, but I wasn’t bright enough to figure it out myself.  I was just shamelessly promoting the blog for the fun of it, but now it’s gotten serious.

Here is what I need from you.  Round 2 runs all this week.  Go right now to http://ministry-to-children.com/kids-ministry-bm2011-second/ and

Vote for Dad in the Middle (in the East) and Kidmin1124 (in the West).

Both are underdogs as we barely managed to squeak out third place in each division in the first round.

I have one more favor to ask.

Ask Your Friends to Vote for Dad in the Middle & Kidmin1124 Too!

Post it on Facebook, send a tweet, publish something on your own blog.  I don’t know enough people to make this happen, so I need your help.  Together we can make this happen.  Work with me towards the greater good (that being getting me an Ipad Smile)!

As if my impassioned pleas are  not enough, I thought I would list some of the other reasons you should feel sorry for me and vote for Dad in the Middle and Kidmin1124:

  • I’ve never had IPad (1 or 2).
  • I’ve never even had an IPhone.  I saw one once.  It looked pretty cool.
  • I still use a PC for all of my computing needs.
  • My laptop weighs nearly two pounds, and that just isn’t good for my back.
  • I still use my cell phone primarily for making telephone calls!
  • My wife has an Ipod touch, but she won’t let me use it (not really, but remember I am trying to elicit pity).
  • Five out of six people in my house want me to win this competition (we won’t get into the details of #6 because I’m still bitter).
  • My kids really want to play with it.

Tomorrow, I start my attack adds focused on all my competitors! Smile

  1. Wayne,

    My dream final four is:

    kidmin1124
    Kidologist
    Commander Bill
    Small Town Kidmin

    I'd love to see Dad in the Middle there, but as your blog name suggests, you are in the middle, not the top. 😛

    I wish we were in different divisions, but since we are not… I wish you well, but I must try to defeat you, the iPad would be a great asset for me, as it would be for you. Though deep down inside, I'm sure you're like me. We'll have fun with the competition no matter the outcome. I think we are both under dogs to Sam Luce.

    So let the "games" begin 🙂
