I Need Your Vote, Please!

Hi friends,

I'd love your vote of support

Apartment Therapy is hosting their 2013 Homies Awards again and Vivid Hue Home is in the top 13!  Now, let me step back and explain to everyone why this is even important to me at all.  I started this lil ole blog almost a year ago.  I am a decorator enthusiast but never officially studied interior design.  I have always dreamed that some day I might open my own store front and it would sell a mix between vintage antiques and modern high end pieces.  But all that is in due time.  For now, I have enjoyed the heck out of writing posts out of what inspires me most; decorating.  And mostly, decorating my own home.   

This contest from Apartment Therapy is not about *winning* for me.  It's a great opportunity to gain exposure and make a name for myself among a bunch of bigger bloggers that have been at it for much longer than I have.  Granted, the beauty of The Homies is that big and little bloggers can compete together to try to make it to the TOP SIX by February 8th.  But let's face it, if you don't have a thousand followers behind you that will vote for you, it's highly unlikely that you'll make it to the top six based on the numbers alone.

So when I say, I'd like you to vote for me for a chance to be in the top *ten* or top *something*...I truly mean it.  Since this competition opened last Friday, my little blog, Vivid Hue Home, has managed to stay among the top 12 to 13.  And that is just mind blowing for me.  That alone is a personal accomplishment for me. 

Just a year ago, I was sitting in my sunroom knowing that I needed to pursue this lifelong dream of design... in some aspect or another.  I wasn't even sure what to CALL myself.  I didn't even know if I had enough putz-pah to have people show up to read what I wrote.  So for me to stagger between the top 13....that's great (for me). 

I'd love the opportunity to see how far I can take this.  I would love for you to vote for Vivid Hue Home in The Homies, if you haven't already. 

I would love for you to promote me on your blog, if your willing. 

I have just until Friday to make it to the Top 6.  And I'm just so close.  And I see the bigger guys each day gaining momentum as their readers realize that they are in the competition so they are slowly gaining the lead...and yes, I may seem desperate for the votes.... and well, it's really not about desperation so much as it is about my passion to see how far along I can get in this competition.  

Ok, you get it.  If you've followed me for awhile and you'd like to vote for Vivid Hue Home, I'd be OVER THE MOON! 

You just click here to vote.    We're currently listed under the Best Home Design & Inspiration Blog.  And as I stated above, please feel free to shout from the rooftops, facebook, tweet, blog, and pass out handouts to strangers on the street (as long as they don't look too shady!). 

Thanks for your support!
