I NEED YOUR HELP (a.k.a., Freshly-Baked Cartoon Cookies)

I normally don't ask for much in this life (except to maybe go back to France), but I feel the need to insert a shameless plug humbly request something from you all.

What I will ask for is nothing too serious. In fact, if you do this, you will feel like a much better person. The kind who makes kitties purr in happiness when you stroke their warm, fluffy bellies.

My request is this: I ask that you take a few minutes and help Invader Stu out with a vote so his blog, Invading Holland, can win a Bloggie under "Best European Weblog" on the Twelfth Annual Weblog Awards.

Why should you vote for him?

1) 'Cause his blog is one of my absoloute favorite things on the internet, thus if one of my favorite things on the internet gets proper recognition, it will make me one happy little girl who will want to spread love, harmony and joy all over the world through freshly-baked cartoon cookies.

Mmm. Cookies...

2) 'Cause he's the official King of Holland (which has still yet to be disputed by the Royal Family).

And, simply put:

3) 'Cause he chronicles what it's like to live in a country that has a perplexing hard-to-learn language and equally perplexing customs, all with a good laugh and awesome cartoons. His blog freakin' deserves a Bloggie, people!

Apart from receiving such an honor as the Bloggie award, he will also earn 2,012 pennies, a.k.a. $20.12, which is approximately 15,27 Euros. That should finance him with enough funds to buy 6 jars of Speculoos, which are 3 jars more than what he would get in the States.

Again, please, please, a literal PLEASE with a cherry on top, vote for Invading Holland under "Best European Weblog" so it could win a Bloggie. (The link is embedded in there.)

Click it! Ya know ya want to... *waggles eyebrows*

Thanks so much!

  1. You way too amazing and awesome and kind you know that. I don't know what to say. Thank you :)

  2. Stu: Graag gedaan. ^.^

    Hanny: I know the voting system is set up by submitting e-mail addresses, so I don't know if it'll accept the same address twice. :/



Apparently, leaving comments on this blog is a hit-or-miss game of Russian roulette: you are either lucky and can comment away, or you are required to log in when the settings are CLEARLY set to allow trouble-free commenting (sorry 'bout that, folks). If anything, the Facebook page is always a viable option. :) -Barb
