Shameless Self Promotion - #2 - Canadian Blog Awards FINALS

Her head spinning like a bed after a mickey of Raspberry Sour Pusz, Sheena is pleased as punch to have made it to the finals in the category of "Best Personal Blog". Thank you to her Round 1 supporters, and a hearty: OK, now get off your ass and vote to her lurkers.

Voting is open until Friday Dec 1, so click here and giddyup: Vote SheenaVision Now.

Sheena, you may ask. We all love your stuff, but please, tell us why you deserve our vote. I was hoping to use the all-candidates forum as the venue in which to announce my platform, but apparently CRTC regulations bar the participation of all of the front runners, so I'll have to make do with this.

  • On the Use of Nudity to Attention-Whore One's Blog: Sheena thinks this practice is despicable and shallow, never mind the fact that she is now of an age where the pencil test is now requires overnight cramming. That being said, Sheena does respect the Tits for Hits gambit as an ace up the sleeve, so she is pleased to assure her voters that she will represent these interests fairly: Exhibit A. Sheena also promises to continually make reference to her Sheared Beaver as the temperature dips below zero degrees.
  • On False Self-Modesty and Encouraging Readers to Vote for Others: Nothing is more unpalatable than ungrateful finalists too arrogant to respect the wishes of their supporters. A tired ploy that quite frankly, voters have had enough of. The day that ego and narcissism leaves the blogosphere, we're all lost. In categories where the Canadian public was stupid enough not to Vote Sheenavision, I recommend Uninstalled for Best Biz Blog, Harper Valley for Best Humour Blog, Best New Blog and Best Blog Post Series, The Internationalist for Best Cultural Blog, and a grudging recommendation for Azerbic for best media blog. Yeah, yeah, everybody needs a break now and then, but it's sweeps week for fuck's sakes, lady!
  • On Excessive Use of Pictures to Distract Readers with False Artistic Sophistication: Hiding the fact that one can't spell, one can hold up the blogger version of the shiny object all they like. That being said, Sheena promises in 2007 yet MORE pictures of her shoes, of runny cheeses, skin diseases and foreign beers.

    • On the Spectre of American Infiltration of the Canadian Blog Awards Riding on the Coattails of Health Care Concerns:Protecting the Sanctity of the Emerging Canadian Blog Market is Priority 1 for SheenaVision. While Sheena endeavours to keep a jetsetting, globetrotting perspective on the world, ultimately she is grounded in the issues that face Canadians and strives to communicate this to her readership. Gitch vs. Gotch. Club Beer vs. Standard Lager. Why VQA matters. Sheena does this because she loves Canada. And her loyal readers.

      On violation of PIPEDA legislation: Just because the category is Personal Blog does not mean we need to read what could be the 4 more boring words in the blogosphere - Kiwanis Elementary Music Festival. Sheena promises to you that if she wins in this category never ever shall she ever use the words: pap smear, results, chafing, cute crayon drawings, or pink blouse. You can hold me to that.

      In conclusion, I salute my worthy competitors and offer my support to the other candidates on the SheenaVision slate. Remember: your vote counts. Vote now, and vote often. Sheena knows that you have a choice of blog content providers, and values your business.

      God Bless the SheenaVision Nation.

    So I'm busy drawing up my sure-fire plans to win a CBA next year, and now I hear that it would bad form to post photos of my tits or write gushing prose about my kids' successes at next year's Kiwanis Music Festival.


    Oh, and good luck, Sheena.

    *I* was in the Kiwanis Festival in the fourth grade, not my kids. And we did this awesome song where we did a little dance with sticks.

    I may never win a blogging award, my dear, but I will always have THAT.

    Thanks for the link! I'd wink here with an emoticon, but it just doesn't seem like the right thing to do.

    I haven't seen so much flak since the farmers went after the German Messerschmitt pilot down in the rye, wanting to discuss politics.
    I don't think your blog is lame!

    Sheena, I apologize for missing your blog in the list. But I have something for you over at my blog.

    i'm not sure what it is you're referencing about me not being able to spell.

    but i do agree with booing the infiltration of US bloggers into CDN awards. i think that's wrong.
