I have many subscribers!

This blog of mine has the most subscribers of any of my blogs. Today at a glance I see that 43 people are subscribed to this feed. That blows me away as I don’t get to update this blog nearly as much as my blog The BenSpark. That blog is updated on a daily basis and this one is updated a couple of times a week. And this blog is beating that one by 13 subscribers.

Since this is going out to so many people I am asking for your help. Could each of you who subscribes to this blog please vote for me in the iBlogCup? I would really appreciate the help. It is a blog competition that has a few rounds. Round one ends today and I hope to beat out a blog called Reverse Turkey. From there I will be paired up against another blog and if I win that round I end up moving on again.

It looks like if each subscriber takes a moment to vote for The BenSpark, each day I have a shot at this thing. What do I win? Nothing more than bragging rights. Also if you are looking for a nomination in the next round leave me a comment with a link to your blog.

Please vote every day in December. Just click on Vote next to the link to The Ben Spark (they separated the words.)

So I’m a day late..

Yesterday was International Talk Like A Pirate day, one of my favorite days ever. I like it because of my affinity for Jimmy Buffett, Pirate movies and the uncontrollable desire to say, Yarr!.

This year I celebrated by wearing my eyepatch at work, watching the YouTube videos from the Pirate guys and sponsoring a contest on my blog The Benspark.

Allison and I are members of the Disney Movie Club and while it is pretty good for the most part we have accidentally had to buy movies. And I mean accidentally because somoene (me) doesn’t go to the website and deny the pick of the month. Well, a couple of months back Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest came to our house. We already owned it, in fact we bought it from Disney Movie Club the previous month. So it sat in our living room and it ended up staying with us. I want to give it away so I am sponsoring a contest over at The BenSpark to do that very thing.

You have until the 28th to enter the contest.
