Is it possible that we have arrived once more at the time of year when locals are campaigning for votes as though their lives depended on it?
No, I don’t mean the Maryland primary election.
Today, June 30th, begins the voting period for the annual Howard County Magazine 2022 Readers Choice Contest.
You are invited to vote daily in the following categories:
HEALTH & WELLNESS
OUT & ABOUT
FOOD & DRINK
As you may have figured out, this contest is a click-fest. It is a way of showing which businesses or local figures can muster the kind of loyalty entailed in signing in and clicking daily. For businesses, winning this can be a big deal. It looks great on one’s promotional materials.
As for bloggers, well…
There was a time that winning this meant a lot to me. I suppose I thought that it would carry more clout than it actually does. In the long run, it didn’t necessarily open more doors for me or cause hocolocal notables to show me any more respect.
It was simply a fun thing to win, and I was grateful.
This year you have three choices in the Blogger Category:
- Scott E
- Village Green/Town²
- Howard County Progress Report
