I am sure that you have all heard the hype around the SA Blog Awards 2010, and that you have seen the local blogosphere go crazy lately as people try to win your vote/nomination. Wait, hold on a second. They have been trying to win your vote, but you actually have no idea how to do so? Today that all changes. Below I will show you how to nominate someone in three easy steps.
The process really is simple, and can be done by following the steps below:
1. Click HERE to go to the nominations page
2. Enter your email address and the Security Code on the right.
3. Check your email and click on the confirmation link.
That sounds nice and simple, but let me make it even easier for you! I will break things down step by step for you so that you have to do even less work and won’t stress your intelligent brains at all.
1. Click HERE to go to the nominations page and automatically vote for me in the Best New Blog category:
Now, I have tried to make things as easy as possible for you lovely readers out there and all you need to do is click HERE, or on the banner on the right, to automatically vote for Captain Awesome in the Best New Blog category. It couldn’t be any simpler.
*Alternatively you could click HERE to just be taken to the nominations page where you can vote for anyone you like.*
Please note that this will open a new tab.
2. Enter your email address and the security code on the right.
This is where things start to get slightly trickier, but don’t worry, they are still pretty easy.
I have highlighted the two important parts in this screen with a red square. The red block on the left highlights the URL/website that you have just nominated. Make sure that this is the correct URL, and in this case, it should say www.cptawesome.co.za as that is who you are so lovingly voting for ;) The block on the right is the most important part. This is where you confirm your vote. Please make sure that you have entered your email address (required) into the email field. Please make sure that this is a valid email address as you will be sent a confirmation email! Then you simply need to fill out the green letter/number combo into the white box next to it and then click on submit.
3. Check your email and click on the confirmation link
Now that you have nominated someone, hopefully Captain Awesome ;), you need to check your email. A confirmation email would have been sent to the email address that you provided in Step 2. It should look something similar to the image above. The first red block just highlights the blog that you have nominated and into which category. Click on the link that is in the bottom red box. When you click on that link, it will confirm that you are in fact a human and therefore validate your nomination. Once you have done that, you are done! It is as simple as that and takes merely 30 seconds!
You are done!
Thank you! I hope I managed to make things easy enough for you to follow and not be faced with any issues at all. If you have any issues, feel free to drop me an email at jbigmac at gmail dot com. I hope that in turn for showing you all how easy it is to vote that you will take the 30 seconds it takes to nominate me.
