Cathy Resmer at 802 Online noted a few weeks back that the “Best Vermont Blog” category had been mysteriously dropped from the Seven Days “Best Of” list this time around.
And Cathy was not amused, to say the least.
So she went to work on the matter, and the upshot is that the contest has been reinstated. Here’s the permalink describing the contest, and linking on to the actual ballot.
Let us take this moment to ask for your vote — humbly ask for your vote.
As far as we can remember, this site has never asked anything else of you, and we’ve refused both advertising and contributions to keep the reading experience clean.
But we respect the hell out of Seven Days — always have, always will — and we genuinely covet the 7 Daysie.
Now, we realize that we may have — among our regular readers — those whose personal politics make it difficult to pull the lever for VDB. (If the truth were known, VDB has committed readers even in the camps where our artillery falls most frequently.)
But not to worry. In those cases of conscience, let us suggest a more politics-neutral alternative: the Dead Governors over at Politics VT, who have done their best over the last few years to provide an excellent web resource, with a less partisan feel.
The Governors are scheduled to ride off into the sunset after this election cycle, and a 7 Daysie wouldn’t look too shabby sticking out of their saddle bags.
But in any event, vote. Like confession, it heals the soul. Polls close July 3rd.
