Best in Category Voting Linky

Our best in category blogs will be displayed for a total of 3 months throughout our site giving you maximum exposure and making it a fun way to meet new faces. The way it works; if you left a comment on this post and you hold a ftlob badge, you are entered into the voting likes below where you will need to get as many votes as possible to win the title, "Best in Category".  So get ready to ask your friends from everywhere to come 'LIKE' your blog! The linky will be active until the 29th, we will then get the best in category blogs ready for exposure on the first of the month along with our blog of the month.

The voting polls didn't work out as planned so this was the next most easiest way to get you your winning titles! We will ADD the blogs to the Linky and then you can Vote! Like whomevers blog you like the best in that category. DO NOT ADD ANY LINKS TO THIS LINKY--THIS IS FOR BEST IN CATEGORY ONLY AND WE WILL ADD THE BLOGS! all others will be deleted. if you don't hold a badge but left a comment to get voted for, we have over 2000 members and it's impossible for us to search to see if you are an actual member--without our badge, you cannot be entered!

Thanks and Good Luck!!!

I have a badge on my blog and I'm not listed here? Is there any reason why not? It's not on my homepage because I don't want to clutter it with links, but it's on my "links" page.

Boo. :(

BellaVida said...

Robyn said...

i fee like the two above-a bit put put, as i am not above but listed myelf,so feel it is unfair and unfortunatly will not vote on any of the others. booooooooo i say

Vic said...

In Reference to these BOO Comments:

@Kaley: I spent days reviewing these comments on the previous entry post and double checked your site quite a few times to make sure you carried our button, looked on pages and NEVER seen it! Unless I am Blind, IT wasn't there until you just put it there and that is fine, you can be entered because I have NO problems entering someone who actually follows instructions but Like I said, it wasn't there when I looked yesterday!

@BellaVida: I know you had a button on your sidebar and I swear I added you, but at the SAME time linky tools was acting up and not pushing them through and then updated them a few minutes later, I was trying to get everyones done in a timely fashion and there must have been some error but I know you were added; i will most certainly add you!

@Robyn: I LOOKED and LOOKED and LOOKED again to see if you left a comment on the entry post and NO, I DO NOT SEE it- to be entered into this, you must leave a comment telling us you wanted to be entered and what category you were listed in--- we have so many categories and so many members that we couldn't possibly know that you wanted to be entered unless you told us so in the comment on previous best in category post.

I'm really flabbergasted at these BOO comments when I spent so much time on this! I spent so long trying to do previous polls and entered everyone onto them and then had to re-do this linky because the polls weren't set up right. I BURNED my eyeballs gazing and going through each comment to make sure I didn't miss anyone, reviewed everyones blog over and over again, and then to have people upset with me when I did nothing but try to HELP gain you some exposure! I'm honestly sitting here in tears because I don't think anyone understands how much time goes into running a site like this! I try so hard to please everyone and now I'm feeling like what the fuck for---to get BOOED! If anything a nice comment explaining your situation and sincerety on wanting to be involved and asking that you be entered and I would have had NO problems what so ever adding you to this entry----Robyn, I'm still so confused and would like you to please tell me where exactly your entry comment is--I'd be happy to take care of this for each of you and I'm sorry that you have no idea how hard I try!!!!!

Vic said...

also, I fogot to mention that I'm Human and only One person!

Vic said...

forgot---now i can't even function!!!

Misty said...

Vic- I know how hard it is to host something like this and you have SO much going on on this blog. I'm even more impressed that it is only one person doing all this. Hats off to you, blogging bud. I just want you to know how very much I appreciate all you do for us bloggers. I have only taken on photographer bloggers and you have taken on ALL bloggers. Please don't let the Boo comments get to you because they are 1 out of 100s of bloggers that appreciate everything you do for us and our blogs. I've gotten new readers as a result of your blog so I speak for the majority of us in saying THANK YOU for all your hard work and dedication to this blog. It does NOT go unnoticed or unappreciated. *hugs*

Caffeinated OC Mommy said...

Hello Vic Darling! I'm just commenting to say that you're WONDERFUL! xoxo

TexaGermaNadian said...

Ewww eww eww with the boos! FTLOB doesn't deserve those, Vic doesn't deserve those. You should be so lucky to have this site at your finger tips for blogging resources.
Vic, thanks for all your time and effort you put into everything. Most of us out there really appreciate the site more than we can ever say. And no, that isn't a suck up move to win my category, haha.

Jordan said...

Hugs for the wonderful Vic! *hug* *hug* *hug*

Kaley said...

My badge has been there for a good few weeks, actually. :/

I'm sorry you missed it and that you took such offense to my comment. I didn't mean to upset you at all. It's just sorta disappointing when I follow the rules and get overlooked. I didn't mean to upset you so much, really. I was hurt, too, when I came on here all excited and saw that I wasn't included. I even double checked the rules to make sure I was following them. I understand you're just one person, and I do appreciate what you are doing, really, it's places like these that give new bloggers a second chance. I don't think I was rude or mean in my post. I just said "Boo." as in, "Boo, I got overlooked in here, guess I gotta try next time." No as in, "BOO YOU SUCK."

PG said...

This is amazing! I love you guys for the greatest hops ever!!!

PG said...

OK I accidentally added the link to my blog. Please delete it and add it like you would normally do...sorry for the trouble.

Haylie said...

This is Awesome!

Haylie said...

I hope I did this right!! I posted here and linked people to voting on this page. But now that I'm reading again I'm confused! SOrry I'm an idiot! I've had the badge on my page under the 'about me' link on the left. Is there anything else I need to do? Thanks for doing this. It's a great opportunity for new bloggers to get some readers.

Sinea said...

I do carry a button on Ducks n a Row and am so excited about this opportunity. As always, thanks for your site. It is such a blessing to us all!

Sonishka said...

This.looks.like.fun!Excuse.the.dots.my.space.bar.died.:-(((

Debbie said...

Kaley (I don't want to beat a dead horse and keep this going)but I was just over on your blog and the FTLOB button is no where to be seen. You say it is there, but no one can see it. This is very strange. Hope you get it all worked out.

Jordan said...

I'm confused. It appears people are adding their own blogs at the bottom (different format). Can we vote for those or only for people who initially responded to the original post last week?

Kaley said...

Look Debbie, it's the forth link down...: http://www.kaleyinjapan.com/p/links.html

Vic told me she didn't look at my "Links" page, just my "Resource" one. All a misunderstanding. It's been there for around a month now. ;)

Mommy LaDy Club said...

Well shoot...so sorry to have missed your instructions before posting my link. No problem if you remove it, and pardon my mistake please!

BellaVida said...

Wow Vic, I really appreciate you taking the time to add my blog.

I've had those technically traumatic days too and they are no fun. I'm glad to see everything's working.

Lindsay said...

I had no idea only one person ran this site! You are amazing Vic, I have a hard time keeping up with my own blog, I have no idea how you do it with this one. Keep up the good work!

Vic said...

@Lindsay thank u.....there are three other lovely ladies here on this site as well, but yes i did and do most of this {never actually take the credit} but didn't deserve to get booed when i try to make everything as fair and friendly as possible! :) thank u doll, means a lot!

Haylie said...

Hi Vic:) Was wondering if there's any way to add Best in mommyhood to my link. I'm an idiot and did it all wrong...sorry!
Thank you so much:)!!!!

Jackie said...

Hey, Vic, thank you for hosting this. I just now finally took the time to read the comments, and my heart got a little sad for you. I hope that the emotions that you were feeling are gone and now you are back to pleasantness. Blogging is supposed to be one of the things we can control and enjoy. YOU WORKED HARDER on this than you had to. I cannot imagine how you guys balance all that you do at FTLOB. I hope you find something positive from this little hop/contest.

Vic said...

Thank You all! these comments are truly a great learning experience as all of us here at FTLOB try to put out the most fun events for you fabulous bloggers! @Jordan, no worries...they will not be included as they did not enter the actual entry form by leaving a comment on the post that was initially put out----just linking will not allow them a best in category position, I know who is involved and may do something completely different to make everyone happy with this outcome.

I have been seeing a lot of fuss, confusion and some craziness going on about this contest and not just here on our comments but in bloggyland where our members are participating.

This was an idea that we thought would bring you much needed exposure, make friends and whether or not you win the title, to have a fun little thing going on and for some who didn't understand the rules, etc....are making us think differently as to how we will run these events. Because in no way, shape or form will I allow someone to feel left out, discouraged or dissatisfied with our site. It's something I very much love to do and want everyone to love it as much as we do, so I will be deciding who gets what title and will be making the results as fair as possible and will in the future-set up a little differently!

One of the things that I try to do, is be as lenient as possible on the rules here at FTLOB because I myself HATE rules, but it's becoming more and more evident that we need to enforce some heavy duty rules and if they don't follow, that's really not going to weigh me down...they will have to either be upset or get over it and try next time!

thanks for all the sweet comments and again, sorry for any confusions but know that i will be making final decisions when we reveal the best in categories:) xo

Jordan said...

I've definitely discovered some fun new blogs from this list already. Awesome idea!

Lauren said...

Such a great way to get new blogs out there. Thanks for the voting linky!

Lauren said...

OOPS! I added my own link -- please delete since clearly I didn't read through directions fully. Still love this idea though!!

Abby said...

YAY! I'm #5 yall! Come visit me :) xoxo.

TriGirl said...

Hi Vic,
Hope you are feeling better now. It's so hard to interpret emails/online comments when they are so devoid of context. I had a situation recently where a fairly abrupt email had me gutted and overanalyzing for days. Turns out I totally misinterpreted things.

Also, it's easy to forget that there are real people in charge of your blog because you put so much out there, you're like a well-oiled machine!

It's hard to be a trail-blazer, because when things don't go perfectly you get backlash. But, it seems like we all like your ideas so much that it's hard to slow down and read the fine print :P
