Shameless Self-Promotion

Hey cake eaters! I have shamelessly plugged this on Facebook and Twitter so I suppose it's only fair that I browbeat you guys with it too.

614 Magazine is a local magazine here in Columbus and they're doing a ColumBEST awards and one of the categories is Best Local Blog. I'm guessing I have a snowball's chance in hell because there are some heavy hitter blogs here but I'm going ask anyway - VOTE FOR ME PLEZ???? 


The only thing I can offer in return is my undying love for you. I could probably draw you some pictures too if you wanted, or bake you a cupcake, but honestly, would you eat a cupcake from me? Probably not. I will bake you one though if you want it. And my cupcakes are deelishis.

There IS another incentive in it - 614 is giving away three Trek bicycles, so if you enter you could win one of those. Yay! I can testify that they're for really-real because I myself have won prizes from them before (free food noms for Columbus Dine Originals Week).

If you click on this link right heeya - Columbus Best 2011 - and click on the People category, "Best Local Blogger" is the second from the bottom. Then enter this URL: http://thehotmesschronicles.blogspot.com/ 
and BAM
You are my best friends ever.

You can't say no to this face can you??

  1. Ok. I just read through like 5 of your entries. I says (last month) to myself "Caleb, you already fall behind on your reading list. No following any more blogs."

    But then I'm like "Aww... just one more? Promise this will be the last one!" And I make the face (like the one you drew) to myself (yes, totes possible) and I'm like "Fine. But this is it. And only to maybe cop some of her drawing style, since you use MSPaint like rednecks use condoms."

    So, here I am. Hey there.

    Kristen - Thanks Lady!!
    Caleb - Hahahahaha! I know, I tell myself that too, then I get caught up and I think, OH SHIT this is cool! and follow someone else, then two days pass and I have 5940358490 blogs to read and I freak out. So glad you're on board though!! :-D And no, I don't follow her but I will go check her out with the quickness.
    M Pax - Thanks!! :-)

  5. The large pleading pupils got me. That and I feel compelled to do anything HellaChella tells me to do.
    I'm like a large lumbering brainless caveman.
    Anyway, this is imbued with fancy frolic and fun so I shall vote!

  15. What? You can only vote once? Lame. I'm going to go create some fake accounts. BRB.

  16. Ok, so I didn't want your win to be because of a flood of fake votes from guys with too much time on their hands and a rapscallion streak, but you did just get 6 votes from me, my dad, and 4 of my friends. I'm positive that they would have voted for you anyway, so there's that comfort.

    Good luck!
