Carolyn Nicander MohrSince we all need help from our friends from time to time I thought this title was pretty appropriate for today’s post.  Come on, I know you guys remember this tune from the Beatles…

“What would you think if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key

Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mmm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mmm, gonna try with a little help from my friends”

Is it coming back to you now?  Yep, I thought it would!  Now, let’s get down to business.

In today’s post I have a couple things to share with you.

The Results Are In

I’m sure you remember my post “Only 26 Days Left, I Would Appreciate Your Support“.  I reached out to all of you because I really wanted to help Christian Hollingsworth of SmartBoyDesigns win the 2011 Small Business Influencers Award!

I want to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart for voting for Christian.  The results are in and he didn’t win.  Dang it!!!  He was up against some stiff competition though so overall I think he did really well.  He came in second place in his category for votes.  We racked up 3,312 votes for him guys and we didn’t have any company employees behind us to vote for their bosses everyday like some of those people.

They didn’t just base the outcome on votes alone though, there were other things involved.  But I’m so very proud of each and every one of you and again, thank you so much for participating.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that!

He did receive an honorable mention though so if you’d like to check out that list, you can access that here.

Most Valuable Philadelphia Blogger

Because I was really asking you all to do something generous for my friend Christian, I also told you I would return the favor if you needed me.   Not that my friend Carolyn has to ask but while she was on vacation last week, she was nominated for “Most Valuable Philadelphia Blogger Nominee of 2011”.  Imagine her surprise upon her return.

For those of you who have not met Carolyn Nicander Mohr, she is the creator of “The Wonder of Tech“.   I’m the first person to admit that I am not into gadgets or technology for that matter.  But at the top of each blog post you will notice that I specifically state that “if you leave me a comment, I promise to return the favor”.

Well, Carolyn visited my blog one day so I did return the favor.  I even told her in the post I commented on that I’m so not up on what she shares but I found what she wrote about very helpful for someone who is SO behind the times with all this technology.

Because of Carolyn, I just purchased my first iPod Touch upon her recommendation.  So if you have any kind of tech questions, she’s your woman.  She boggles my mind..

On To The Important Part

Sorry for rambling, I do that from time to time.  So back to the purpose of this post… Carolyn has been nominated for “Most Valuable Philadelphia Blogger Nominee of 2011”. This voting is similar to what we did for Christian.  You can only vote every 24 hours and all you need to do is click on the vote button and you are done.  The voting goes through September 9th.

Are you all up for another round of heavy voting?  Just think about it this way.  If you are ever nominated for something you know you can reach out to all of us for our support. Those people won’t know what hit them.   Just click on the button below and you will be taken directly to the page to vote.

Most Valuable Philadelphia Blogger

I’m not sure exactly what she will received, it doesn’t state, but since Carolyn lives in the Philadelphia area who cares right!  It’s the recognition and knowing that you were nominated that is the real prize.

I Appreciate You 

Just in case I haven’t told you how much I appreciate you lately, well here it goes again.

I appreciate each and every single one of you so much…

I have the best blogging friends a girl could ever ask for.  Thank you so much for helping Carolyn out and trust me, she really appreciates you as well.  Now remember, go visit her place if you need some help with techie stuff cause this lady does know it all.  Oh, and she’s just really cool too!

Thanks guys!!!
