Gnome Stew has been nominated for Best Blog in the 2010 GenCon EN World RPG Awards, the “ENnies,” and I’m here to ask for your support: Please vote for Gnome Stew!
Voting takes about 30 seconds, is open to everyone, and doesn’t require registration or any other fiddly stuff. You can vote in just the Best Blog category, if you like, and voting is open through July 25th.
It’s this easy:
- Visit the ENnies voting page
- Scroll down to Best Blog
- Click the down arrow symbol next to Gnome Stew
- Enter your vote (1 is the highest score you can give us, 5 is the lowest)
- Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the “Submit my votes” button
That’s it! Thank you VERY much for your vote!
In more than two years of running this site, this is the only thing we’ve ever asked of you, our readers. This is our 700th article on the site (purely by accident!), and we’ve written all of them because we love GMing, we love gaming, and we love sharing our knowledge with you.
I’ll speak only for myself, here, but your support means the world to me, and I would like to personally ask for your vote.
I’ve been nominated for an ENnie twice before, and I put those nominations on my resume; I believe that they helped me get my current job, which I love, and I also believe that if Gnome Stew wins an ENnie that will open additional doors for the site and the creative team behind the Stew.
I encourage you to vote in as many categories as possible, because the ENnies mean a lot to the many folks who toiled to produce the excellent products, sites, and podcasts that have been nominated this year. But if you only vote in one, I hope it’s ours!
And please don’t think that your vote “doesn’t matter” — past ENnies have been decided by margins in the low two digits! Every single vote is important.
Want to Send Even More Support Our Way?
The ENnies are open to anyone, and at this stage popular vote count determines the winners.
If you love the Stew, please ask your friends, players, gaming group, forum buddies, family, coworkers, and anyone else you think would donate 30 seconds of their time to vote for Gnome Stew. (We’ll be doing exactly the same thing behind the scenes.)
Grassroots support like this is what wins ENnies. Once again, thank you for your support.
Good luck to all of the nominees!
Hey, why are you still reading this? Get thee to the voting booth!
