With A Little Help From My Friends

August 25, 2011 | By Adrienne Smith

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.

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!!!

Wow, Adrienne, thank you so much for your kind words and support! I was truly surprised as I checked in on your blog today, kind of like my surprise in returning from vacation and discovering The Wonder of Tech was a finalist for Philadelphia’s Most Valuable Blogger Award: stunning, touched and thrilled.

My goal in writing The Wonder of Tech is to help others discover the wonders of personal technology – how it can be useful and fun! I’m so glad that you have begun to discover the wonder of tech through your iPod Touch! :-)

What I am discovering is the wonder of the blogging community and amazing people like you!

Congratulations to Christian, who was up against the likes of Google, Microsoft, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. Not bad for a 20 year old! Although he won Honorable Mention instead of the ultimate award, I’m sure he feels as I do, overwhelmed by the outpouring of support. That is the real prize.

Thank you, Adrienne, from the bottom of my heart, for your incredible support. And yes, I am here for you anytime I can repay the favor. You rock.

Well hello there Miss Carolyn…

I was more than happy to help you as well since you are just as deserving of this award as Christian was of his. I totally agree that when you are up against the likes of the big corporations (although that was suppose to be a small business award) that 20 year old kid did alright for himself.

Philadelphia is a pretty darn big city and you have a lot of competition but it will be fun to see how much attention these other sites get as well. Wish they showed how many votes everyone was receiving but I guess they have their reasons. I’ve been voting each day as soon as I learned of this so you can definitely count me in on supporting you throughout the time we have left.

I love your blog more and more and even chuckle at times with what some of these apps can do. My oh my!!! The things they come out with these days. But you are first to report a lot of that and you have taught me so much.

Thank you again Carolyn for all your help and support and I know you are so deserving of winning this award. Let’s see what we can’t do to help you along.

Best to you my friend and you are so very welcome.

Good Morning Adrienne,

First things first, I absolutely LOVE that Beatles Hit! It’s one of my favorites, coming in really close to Paul’s, Imagine. OK, got that out of the way. ;)

Next, to let you and Carolyn know, that I cast my vote for today… I think I actually did it twice. I usually have two browser up, Microsoft for my social media needs and Google Chrome for all of my blogging needs. So when I went to go tweet the voting link on my Microsoft browser, it actually cast the vote again. Hope it was legal. :-/

Anywho, Best of luck to you Carolyn. And hoping both of you young ladies are having a phenomenal day.

Hey Deeone,

I do too, couldn’t get it out of my head. I went walking last night and it popped into my head and I thought hey, that would be a great title for today’s blog post. Very appropriate for Miss Carolyn.

Oh my gosh, that is fabulous. I just opened it up in another browser and it let me vote. Hot dog, that didn’t work when voting for Christian I’m afraid. Thanks for sharing that Deeone… She’s going to get four votes from me each day then.

Thank you so much for the support, we really appreciate it. Everyday is a great day so thank you for that. Hope the same for you my friend.

Very appropriate indeed Adrienne,

You have me over here laughing hysterically, because the thought that’s going through my head at the moment; Hmph, I guess good things do come from making mistakes. :)

That’s awesome! I was afraid for a moment that I might’ve gotten Carolyn in trouble. “NO! Deeone Voted Twice, One doesn’t of them count and he’s not allowed to vote anymore!” LOL

Forgive me… I can be little silly at times. :)

Glad to know that it helped though… She’s sure to win now!

And you’re right on the money with that one, everyday IS a great day, Adrienne. I can truly say, I concur. ;)

Hi Adrienne,
I think that is great what you are doing here. I just voted for Carolyn’s blog over at the website. It’s true, sometimes we just have to be willing to ask and we shall receive.

2nd place is not too shabby for Christian as well. Good Job. :)

Thank you, I really appreciate that! I think it’s good to reach out and ask for help from our friends from time to time. I know that when I ask you all to assist in something I’m trying to accomplish you are right there. But I’ll turn around and do the same for you and anything else I can do to help. That’s what I love about the blogging community. We all want to do our part.

I appreciate the votes and support as always. You’re the best Justin.

You are right, 2nd place isn’t too shabby but 1st would have been a whole lot sweeter!!! ;-)

I shouldn’t really be surprised at Adrienne’s generous support. She is generous with all of us every time she shares her wisdom when she publishes her posts. But it still feels amazing and incredible to have this kind of support from such a wonderful woman.

This is awesome. I never thought about writing a blog post like this, but it has sure way more impact than both Twitter and Facebook. And thanks a lot for reminding me to vote again. Carolyn is brilliant, she deserves the victory.

Thanks a lot for being such a role model in the blogosphere.

Hey Jens,

I got the idea when Christian was up for that award. I thought to myself, how can I get the word out beyond just tweeting and sharing on Facebook. That’s when it hit me to write a post. I even told everyone they didn’t have to comment, I just wanted votes for him. That post is the one that has the most comments on it now. I was shocked and amazed but oh so very grateful. It was a great reminder to all my friends to vote for him on a regular basis which they did.

I don’t have to tell you what Carolyn means to the both of us. She’s one smart cookie and I love her blog. Even if I’m not a techie person, she really knows her stuff and I find it fascinating what she shares over there. Plus she’s now my go to gal for all question on gadgets. I just hope that this post will help her as much as the one I wrote for Christian.

Thank you for voting Jens, we both really do appreciate your support my friend. And all the kind words you throw my way. I’m so very blessed.

Adrienne,

Not every blog or site would have the character to reach out to their audience and ask them to help out a complete stranger.

That’s what is nice about your site. You put your true self out there every day and don’t care if some readers might be turned off by a post about voting. You don’t really need those readers anyways.

I’ll jump in and lend some votes. Like you said, by helping Carolyn this time, we are setting up an opportunity for others to do the same if the chance ever presents itself.

Good work,

Bryce

Thank you for saying that Bryce, that means a lot. I don’t know about you, but since I’ve been here I have met some fabulous people. I just hope that the people who do read this post and aren’t familiar with me or the people I mentioned, they will take the time to check out their site and see what top notch individuals they both are.

I appreciate your support, it means a lot. You are so right my friend, this is just setting up an opportunity for us to return the favor. And there will come a time I have no doubt.

Have a great day Bryce,

Bryce, you are absolutely correct, Adrienne has strength of character few people possess. She puts herself out there for others constantly and that’s what makes her a fantastic friend.

It hadn’t occurred to me that people might be put off by Adrienne’s posts asking for votes for Christian and me. I guess those people don’t “get” the amazing gift Adrienne gives to others, and they don’t appreciate the support the blogging community gives to each other. Adrienne exemplifies the supportive community and is a leader for us all.

Bryce, thank you for your votes! I am happy to repay the favor any time. We’re all in this together.

Hey, Adrienne. Sorry I haven’t stopped by for a little while. Imagine my surprise when I saw your post to help Carolyn. I’m so excited for her. What an honorable award. I actually learned about Carolyn through you, of course, a few months back, and truly enjoy her blog and posts about all those cool gadgets. I would love to help her out.

But she started learning and then kept up to date with all new techie things and now that woman knows so much. She amazes me. Be sure to stop by her blog and give her a shout. She’ll appreciate it.

Hi Ruth, I have found those who claim they know nothing about tech actually know quite a bit. No one knows every aspect of tech, it’s just not possible. I’m planning on writing a blog post on this topic.

Our lovely host, Adrienne, claims she knows little about tech, but she has helped me incredibly with the technical aspects of blogging. Ask me about gadgets, I can answer pretty much anything, but I’m still figuring out the finer point of WordPress (shh, don’t tell anyone). Adrienne and Jens have been very generous and patient in their guidance. Luckily, I don’t have to blog about WordPress though.

Ruth, thank you very much for checking out The Wonder of Tech and for your votes! I’m happy to help you out with any tech questions you have. I’ll be heading over to your blog soon. Those who claim to have little tech knowledge are often those who know plenty! :-)

Good one, love that. Did that song bring back memories for you? Can’t get it out of my head now darn it!

She better give us a ride, heck, come all the way to Texas and pick me up! I’m not holding my breath over that one. Wonder what they are giving? Guess we’ll find out next month.

No doubt about it, she is a Wonder of Tech. The more thoroughly you know a topic, the more simply you can explain. Carolyn’s expertise is evident in everything she writes.

Adrienne, I tweeted this before I even commented. Now, I am off to finish sharing and I will be posting a note in my tribes to let people know about this opportunity to support her.

Hi, Adrienne.

My first time here and I get to do something good for others immediately. :) I have had the pleasure of connecting with Carolyn. She was very kind to visit my blog and leave a comment. I replied and went to check out her blog. As a non-techie myself, I admit that I was taken aback by Carolyn’s site, but I clipped it to my Evernote in case I need help with something technical.

With everything medical-related that’s happened to me lately, I didn’t get the chance to visit many blogs and Carolyn’s was among them. So, I am very happy that you gave me a chance to show Carolyn that I care even I don’t understand half of what she’s writing.

Glad to have finally come over and be coming back for more soon. :)

Hi Kim,

Welcome my friend, so happy to have you here. And I’m thrilled to hear that you have had the wonderful pleasure of meeting Carolyn.

I agree with you, I’m so not a techie, gadget person but boy does she know her stuff. Because she continued to visit me and comment on my posts I wanted to do the same for her even though I had no idea what she was writing about. But the more I read, the more fascinating some of this stuff became and I soon learned just how far behind I am with technology! Now if I want to know about something I just email her directly because she’s been that helpful to me.

I’m sorry about your recent health issues and hope all is resolved now. Having hat to worry about is never an enjoyable experience.

Thank you for your support and for voting for Carolyn. She’s very deserving of this award so I hope you’ll help me spread the word.

Thanks again Kim and I’ll see you soon! Be by to visit here in a bit! :-)

Thank you, Adrienne, for continuing to return to my blog even though you were confused at times. I’m always happy to help clear up the confusion. Tech can be complex, but if you focus on the fun of it, the learning curve isn’t such a steep climb!

I write for everyday people who feel left behind with all the tech advances. Plenty of people write for techies, but my friends are mostly everyday people who have neither the time or the interest to keep up with tech news. Believe me more people are confused by tech stuff than understand it.

So never feel alone or less than brilliant because tech escapes you. You’re in the majority!

Thanks again, Adrienne, for your kind words and awesome support! :-)

I was but you do write for us which is why I did continue to return. Although I don’t understand a lot of what you write about because you know how far behind I am on even upgrading my cell, I still find what they are coming out with kind of interesting. Like the laugh we got earlier this week about that app for finding where you are going in the mall. The visual of a Mom shaking the thing with kids in tow, cracked me up! :-)

I think because your initial occupation was a techie and you had to learn this yourself, you write for those who also didn’t come from that background either. Which is why your blog is so popular. We do need to stay up on things whether we want to or not.

Thank you Carolyn, that was so thoughtful of you. I think you are pretty awesome yourself!

When I get back on track for real, I know I’ll find my way to Carolyn’s site again, Adrienne. :) Because if there is one thing that I love to do when I am not blogging, that is reading. And, I learned that you can read a lot with an iPad, a Kindle or even a Samsung Galaxy…so, I’ll probably need to learn about that from Carolyn. Will be voting for her again today. :)

Thanks for dropping by my site and leaving a thoughtful comment. Really appreciate it.

Enjoy your weekend. :)

Hi Kim, I’m so sorry to hear of your medical issues. I hope you’re all healed soon!

Thank you very much for your support of my blog. I try to explain tech clearly in plain English. I write for everyday people like you and Adrienne, not for techies. So if what I’m writing is not understandable, please let me know, I’m happy to explain further. And I’m very sorry for being confusing sometimes. My bad.

Whether I won or not – it taught us one thing….the blogging community is darn near perfect when it comes to supporting others within the community.

Let’s take that momentum – and get Carolyn some votes! She deserves every bit of this award. All of it. The whole shebang!

And Adrienne, you know, you’re the best for doing things like this. For showing your support and love for others. You set trends and are a leader in many areas; but the pure support of others is certainly one of your strong-suits. Your support certainly didn’t go without success. The extra traffic and prolonged exposure I received (and AM!) has been phenomenal. It’s something I’ll be able to ride on for quite some time.

It’s looking like there’s no way for us to see who’s in the lead in this contest? We better just force it then! ;)

You will always be a winner to me Christian. You are such an amazing young man and I know I say that often.

I’m thrilled to hear that any and all support you have received from this contest has brought you even greater attention to you, your blog and what you do. You are our younger generation who can lead the way to show others that they can do whatever they put their mind to. With a loving heart and a strong will, anything is possible. We will be reading about you soon in some magazine or seeing a documentary about you on TV. That I have no doubt, you are headed for great things my friend.

I know you’ll do everything in your power as well to gather up move votes for our lovely Carolyn. I am not happy either that we can’t see the number of votes she has coming her way but that just means we’ll have to do more.

Thank you as always and you enjoy your day and have another fun weekend. :-)

What I’ve learned from you through the way you generously promote your friends in contests is the power of community and more importantly of friendships. Bummer about Christian not winning, but I bet he was touched by everyone’s show of support.

Carolyn is a good friend of mine and I was already voting every day for her, but I hadn’t heard the background to her story. I can only imagine how pleasantly surprised she was to find herself nominated! =) And then to see this post with your warmth and encouragement! =) If she hadn’t been my friend, I would’ve been there to support her too because any friend of yours is a friend of mine! =)

I do know that he actually had lunch with the guy that did receive the most votes so see. He’s being watched over for sure.

I have no doubt that Carolyn and you are buddies. That’s wonderful, she’s such a terrific lady. I appreciate you voting for her as well so just keep it up. Let’s see if we can get her in good standings with this nomination.

I appreciate you saying that Samantha, that’s so sweet of you. But that’s the kind of person you are. Thank you for your contribution as always. You are a breath of fresh air over here girl.

I agree Barry, Christian did really well coming in second place being a young single 20 year old kid up against some people who are part of companies. No employees to back his votes, just all of his social contacts. Personally, that’s a huge win in my book.

Thank you again Barry for your ongoing support. I don’t have to tell you what that means to me but you know I will. A LOT!!! I sure do love helping my friends so watch out. If you ever need my support in this way, all you have to do is ask. I’m one it!

Hi Julie,

I am on a mission Julie, you are right about that. I was really upset that Christian didn’t win in his category but he did come in second so that in itself was a win. He’s made a lot of really great connections just from the attention he’s received so it was worth it.

I’m with you. Heck, I don’t even have internet connection on my cell nor have I ever sent a text message. What Carolyn writes about I find very interesting and because of her, I did buy an iPod Touch. I work out in the mornings and I walk every evening so I wanted to listen to my podcasts during that time. I also attend live training and board meetings and since my hearing isn’t all that great I wanted something that would record those so if I missed something I could listen to it later. The iPod Touch also has a built in camera and video so I had asked Carolyn what she recommended since she knows about all of this stuff and she helped me. I would have never known what to get since I’m so far behind the times.

But thank you for your comment, really appreciate it and hope you’ll throw a vote or two her way.

Hi Julie, Wow, what a great comment! Yes, the tech world is filled with men, but I don’t write my blog for techies, I write my blog for everyday people. My readers are men and women, techies and non-techies. I try to translate Geek Speak into plain English so everyone can understand what I’m talking about.

I write about websites, gadgets, smartphones, apps, and anything I find exciting in the world of tech that I think others might want to learn about. For instance, if you do any shopping online, you should check out a site called Mr. Rebates, a site that pays you cash rebates for clicking through it.

In other words, I honestly think there is something for everyone at The Wonder of Tech. Please check out my blog. If you think it is worthy of your vote, then please vote for me. If you don’t, there are 50 other blogs in my category you may like instead. No worries.

Thank you for taking the time to visit Adrienne’s blog and comment. I really appreciate your support!

A couple months ago there was a contest for a free honeymoon based on how many votes you got. I thought “This is perfect!” I’ll get everyone I’ve met online to help me vote! However I read the description and we didn’t qualify because we couldn’t meet the deadline to get married. Was looking forward to getting the Adrinenne Smith VIP treatment!

Ah man, that would have been great. I did put a bug in Carolyn’s ear about your new app so you just might be getting a write up on it soon. I’m sure you are still doing really well with that. I finally got around to downloading it but still haven’t uploaded it to my iPod. I know, I’m behind. I apologize but I promise to do that this week and write you a review.

Brad did a wonderful job didn’t he? The first go around he had a lot more color in it and it just wasn’t me. I know my personality is full of color. I do love my dark blue though so he had another go at it and here’s the finished product. I really like it so thank you so much for letting me know he was offering that.

But I will confess that the registration here or on Carolyn’s blog post makes me accountable. I made a commitment to both and the registration makes me accountable to see it through. Make sense?

I found out that you can open different browsers and vote as well. Apparently it doesn’t check the IP address like other voting systems do. So I’ve been voting 4 times each day. Hey, just trying to get the votes in.

I appreciate you sharing with us that you are doing it. See, you are thinking about it and actually participating in the voting so I know we both really appreciate that. We don’t mind you stopping by and sharing this with us at all. We welcome it!

Plus, we appreciate you!!!

Hi Stan, You’re not forcing me to show my public gratitude, but I do want to thank you and Adrienne kindly for every vote. There are so many blogs in the contest, I need every vote.

Not only that, your comments remind others to vote too.

Thanks, Stan and Adrienne!

Count my vote for Carolyn as well even though I do not know you yet. Will be in a short while when I get more familiar with you all.

This is quite fun.

Cheers

Why thank you Jimmy, I appreciate that and I know Carolyn will as well. We only have a few more days of voting left but all are very welcome. Thank you so much for that. I have a feeling you’ll love what she shares at her place too!

Hi Adrienne,

I was able to open it now. This post is a year old already but it still has its mass appeal.

I have a good friend who always says that if we needed something from our circle of friends all we have to do is ask, because friends are not mind-readers, we have to express what we want. Wise words, right?

You’re a great friend to have Adrienne, I hope we can be friends as well.

Hi Jena,

This is over a year old now, you are right about that.

I totally agree and that’s what I have really come to love about the blogging community Jena. We aren’t mind readers so if we do need help then these are the people we should reach out to. For those that I’ve connected with really well I’m always eager to do what I can if they need me. I love helping others.

I do hope that you and I can be friends Jena, I would love that. So, let’s see what we can’t do about that okay!

Enjoy your week.

~Adrienne
