If there’s anything that I love about blogging, it’s the possibility of a connection.
And no, not just for me.
Did you know that two different couples have met in the comments section of this blog, and dated for a bit? I mean, people with NO prior association, and I had nothing to do with it – I didn’t even know it was happening until it was happening.
So, if nothing else, let that be a lesson to you: comment on blogs – you never know whose internet eye you’re going to catch with your wit and thumbnail picture.
Then again, you could wind up like me – just the ring-leading moron.
Anyway, she might be someone I have never met face-to-face. But people, Dawn is a Hootenannie reader – she is ONE OF US – and she is trying to get to Antarctica. I love her passion and enthusiasm for a place that so many of us think of as totally barren; this passion has led her to enter a contest in which the grand prize is a trip to the polar regions.
But she needs your votes!
Click here to vote for Dawn – to support someone you didn’t even know you were connected to – and help her dream come true. It will cost you nothing. And honestly (I’m channeling Ira Glass here), what kind of a person do you want to be? Someone who sits back assuming that someone else will do it for you – or a person of ACTION?
I might be putting words in her mouth now, but I am telling you that if you vote for her, she will bring you back a baby penguin.
