First off, let me thank everyone who has voted for me (once, twice or twenty times) in the Zoya/Birchbox contest. Yesterday morning, my entry was behind by 400 votes, and thanks to your support we have closed the gap. I am now lagging by less than 100 votes, well within striking distance of the competition.
Part of what makes winning this contest such a challenge is that, while CHS has a strong readership, some of my competitors have tens of thousands of YouTube subscribers and tens of thousands of unique viewers per day. So I am a) amazed that my entry has done this well (which is all thanks to you) and b) really hoping we can bring this one home for all the medium-sized blogs out there that can’t indulge in every trend because showcasing turbans, glitter eyeshadow, sky-high ankle booties and the like doesn’t cater to professional working women.
So if you haven’t voted yet today, please head over to Facebook and vote again. I am confident that your consistent support will pay off in the end. And if you would take a moment to share the entry with your Facebook friends or Twitter followers, I would be eternally grateful.
Also, I know some of you have been having trouble with the voting page. It does take awhile to load, so be aware of that. And you do have to “like” Birchbox before you can vote. If you continue to have difficulty, please be patient and try again a bit later.
Again, you ladies and gents are fantastic and I feel a little weird quasi-begging (okay, just begging) for your support. But this opportunity really means a lot to me, and I am so grateful to have readers who would take the time to vote for me…over and over and over again.
Thanks again. xoxo, Belle
