Just in case you hadn’t noticed, the blogosphere, particularly in politics, does just as many comps and lists as the rest of the media – so that’s lots, then. As Zelo Street has now been “out there” for all of four months, and I’m having a moment of less than total modesty, I’ve decided to plug the latest competition, which comes to you courtesy of Total Politics.
The deal is straightforward: you vote for your top ten blogs. I hope that anyone who looks in on Zelo Street regularly will vote, and include it in their ten. The comp is being sponsored by LabourList, LibDemVoice, and Iain Dale’s Diary. Votes must be emailed to this address:
which, hopefully, is OK so far. Now come the rules, which I’ve copied from Iain Dale’s post on the comp:
1. You must vote for your ten favourite blogs and rank them from 1 (your favourite) to 10 (your tenth favourite).
2. Your votes must be ranked from 1 to 10. Any votes which do not have rankings will not be counted.
3. You MUST include ten blogs. If you include fewer than ten your vote will not count.
4. Email your vote to firstname.lastname@example.org
5. Only vote once.
6. Only blogs based in the UK, run by UK residents or based on UK politics are eligible.
7. Anonymous votes left in the comments will not count. You must give a name
8. All votes must be received by midnight on 31 July 2009. Any votes received after that date will not count.
I know, I know – but there have to be some kind of rules, even in politics! Happy voting ...
