In my "real" world, I work daily with elected officials. I have run campaigns and worked for legislators to get bills passed or killed. It is an exciting world. But I have never envied them when they put their name on a ballot. It takes a lot of hard work to ask for someone to vote for you. I have always enjoyed being the staffer who pushes them along and at the end of the day, I can retire to my home and family. There, I am only accountable to them and not a massive constituency.
Then came the magazine cover contest.
My mother nominated my girl and me for the cover of a local magazine, Little Black Dress/Little Red Wagon. It is one of my favorites because it is two magazines in one geared towards moms and their dual lives of being a hip lady and a cool mom.
In order to win the cover and all the fabulous prizes that come with it, once you are selected for the contest, you have to solicit for votes. So here I am, hat in hand, asking you to vote for me and my child.
There are two EASY ways to do it. If you are on Facebook, click and like here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150628222111686&set=a.10150628221956686.381029.104090731685&type=1&theater
The other way is to go to this Web site, find the picture for Amanda S. and then click and scroll down to vote. It is that simple!
I'll let you know the results on Monday when LBD/LRW picks its winner.
Thank you in advance for humoring me!!!
Go vote! :)
