JIB Voting!

Round One of the JIB voting is underway!

You can vote for Psychotoddler here:

Best Humor Blog (Sample Humor Posts Here)

Best Music Blog (Sample Music Posts Here)

I expecty to be soundly trounced by Dry Bones as usual. But if this is to be our end, then I would have you make such an end, as to be worthy of remembrance.

I absolutely HATE the JIBS---people spend more time advertising on their blogs and less time posting, but since you said you were going to lose to Dry Bones, I put in a vote for you.

When you coming to Israel?

That worthy of being part of a LOR/Harry Potter adventure speech. Against all a horde of orcs we........

I voted for you PT....

Saf: I don't have the readership to keep up with the likes of Dry Bones. That's fine, though. The point of the JIBs is to expose people to blogs they don't ordinarily read. Now, Psychotoddler, just by virtue of the name has a certain, I don't know what, let's call it a je nais se quoi. A WTF factor, such that people will say, "Psycho what?" If they get here, I'd at least like to show them some representative posts.

We're looking for places to stay in Jerusalem in August.

Jack: Great minds think alike! Once more unto the breach!

at risk of incurring wrath, I think that I should suggest another blog to vote for in either of her two catagories (she's a really small and new blog and could really use the pickup of winning, it would be a great chessed)

made a difference
best personal

I hope you get a JIB award
Your blog is a regular smorgasbord
You never leave your readers bored
You make us laugh until we cry
then turn and wish your dad goodby
and let your mom talk about her Shoah days--she's not shy
And talk about your wife and kids with a blogful of wry
Then send us all off with a song
that we end up humming all day long

On the other hand . . .

I'm gotta go with what Safranit said
Don't let the JIBS go to your head
It's almost a week since you write a post
That wasn't about the JIBs--best to make the most
Of your temporary celebrity
And post something new
for your newfound fans and those tried and true
to see

PsychoToddler said...

The PT's sayings
I have exported
To Our Kids Speak
Or so it is reported

So please don't fret
About my JIB obsession
It's all tongue-in-cheek
If you must have my confession

I know I can't win
Against a professional cartoonist
So I'll come up with more shtick
Tomorrow or Tuesday, whichever is soonest

I really suck at rhymes,
So I'll end this soliloquy...
Crap that's hard to rhyme with

Bringing it up was so silly of me

Soccer Dad said...

You should also be promoting Jewish blog definitions in special contributions.
That's your project too, isn't it?

PsychoToddler said...

Yes, but JBD doesn't have a prayer. Although it is one of the few that actually fits that category.

Shira Salamone said...

Okay, confession time--I'm rather ambivalent about the JIB Awards because I've never been nominated.

So just chalk up what I posted previously
as a classic symptom of blog envy
And please pardon me for my semi-poetic rant
which I hereby officially recant

Good luck! I've already voted for you.

Ezzie said...

I think I actually voted for JBD in its grouping, though I agree it doesn't have a prayer. Personally, I think Ha'azina, Orthonomics, and R' Horowitz are the best in that category, with JBD, OKS, and Kindness Happens just behind.

Halfnutcase said...

but ha'azina has only like 8 or 10 votes! Cummon people!

And it's not like she's the kind of person who would go distributing the link to vote for her.

She really should win one of those two catagories, but I don't know that she will, especialy as she's being trounced by hevel havalim (which shouldn't even be there, but I digress) and aidel maidel in the other, (who is trouncing everyone, and perhaps it would be a just wedding present to her) so isn't anyone going to make a big campaign contribution to her?

And btw, ezzie, perhaps you wont mind answering me, but how unethical is it to get a friend to vote for someone in a particular catagory of the JIBs? Please?

Wickwire said...

You're top JIB in my book. I went and chalked one up for you. When do I get my payment?


Shifra said...

It's so complicated!
As with all things Jewish everyone is too connected to be objective. Maybe next year we can run the voting for the Mormon blogs and they can run ours... OK OK just a suggestion!
