What’s up people? It has been a really long time now hasn’t it? Yeah… chasing flying pigs and terrorizing fish burgers aren’t some of the easiest things to do on this earth, and before you know it POOF time has gone by really fast. But we aren’t here to talk about my adventurous misadventures in places you could only think of trying to imagine, no no no. We’re here to talk about something not as enticing but a little bit as fun as battling a rock madam; you guessed it, Dancing Silhouettes in the 2013 Nigerian Blog Awards! We’ve mentioned this a few times before, though not in great detail. So now, I’m here to give it to you straight and know what this is all about. What’s the NBA you ask? According to the site’s description;
The Nigerian Blog Awards were established in 2010 to recognize excellence in blogging, as determined by readers and fellow bloggers. Bloggers of Nigerian descent or non-Nigerians whose blogs focus on Nigeria are welcome to nominate their blog during the Awards period.
The Awards go through several categories; you’ve got beauty, technology, politics, personal blogs, writing, humour, business, books and so on like that. It’s really good stuff to see several categories catering for several existing blogs. Now enough with the appreciation, here’s where it gets good. Dancing Silhouettes is currently listed under Books, Writing or Poetry on the Awards’ listing page. Pretty cool right? We’re in for poetry because let’s face it, we’ve got really good poetry here. Yep, we do.
So we’ve got good poetry, and we’ve got a good readership base as well. Now how do those 2 combine in this present situation? Easy stuff really, we need our viewers to nominate us for the Nigerian Blog Awards so we can step into the next round and start pleading and begging on our weakened knees for votes to move higher and higher. Oh yeah, after this phase we’re still gonna need votes, and that’s assuming we do make it out of this round (you guys love us right? So you’ll help us get there right? I know you guys will). Now enough groveling, let’s check out the steps to vote/nominate Dancing Silhouettes shall we? Great!
