I need a makeover!

So my stranger/friend, fringes and her significant other, Q, are sponsoring this great blog makeover contest. And I really want to win. I mean really. Look at my blog...it needs some color. It needs some pizazz. It needs something! So if you would be so kind as to nominate me for the blog makeover I would greatly appreciate it. It's easy. All you need to do is go to this link and then leave a comment saying you nominate me for the makeover on whatever post is first. Oh...and when you nominate me you will also get your name put in the pot for a chance as well! If you have a blog that is...and if you want a makeover.

OH...and to be nice I'll nominate you back if you want! Just let me know. (Of course by nominating you I'll get another chance myself...hee hee...)

Not nitpicking your grammar, but I am better described as one of your stranger friends. No forward slash needed. Heh.

Glad you're so excited about the challenge. Good luck!

Hey! Been catchin ya over at my blog lately, so figured I'd swing on by and check ya out. Love the pic with the sports bike.

P.S. I'm definetely going to nominate you. And if you don't win, lemme know, I'm a bona fide web developer, and would love to help you out. I wish I had more blogs to experiment with, but it's tough writing on so many!

Thanks, Brian, for the nomination! I need to win. Need to! And I love your blog by the way!

and fringes...i was trying to decide what i thought of your comment. either i only have two friends and you are the stranger of the two...or i have two strange friends and you are the stranger of the two. believe me i have many friends (not that i am bragging)...most of them strange...and well i just don't know who qualifies as the strangest. i'll put you in the running!

Alrighty...I'm loosey goosey on the -er, -est rules, always have been with my apologies to Mrs. Pecsenye, my 12th grade English teacher.

Stranger meant as one of the strangest since I was simply removing your forward slash and making a funny.

I think you're up to 16 chances, but I'm not sure. You're definitely in the lead.

how do i nominate you? just leave a comment on her blog?

Dixon Ailesi said...

crystal...yep just leave a comment on her latest post and that will do it. you will have to put your email address and can put your blog down to if you want to be entered in the contest as well...but you don't have to do that!

Theresa said...

I am in awe of your nomination-gathering skills. And just to show that somebody cares, I'll go nominate you again. And then check back here to make sure you'll respond to my comment. You'll definately respond, right?

Theresa - Thanks for nominating me! I am seriously running out of friends to bribe, threaten or coerce. It's nice to have someone come along who recognizes my spunkiness and need for a blog makeover without me pointing it out. Oh wait...you did read this post so maybe I did point it out. But you, my friend, were a willing participant! Thanks! Oh...and I always respond. After saying almost always in my post I decided that from now on it will be always! Maybe not as quickly as I'm responding to your comment...but I vow to always respond to comments!

Theresa said...

Wow, that was quick. (Answering my comment, I mean.) Good luck in the makeover contest. And thanks for the nomination. I really need to win this thing!

Dixon Ailesi said...

theresa...yeah me too. my blog is about as boring looking as they come. and i am anything but boring! i need something that reflects my personality. not exactly sure what that is...but i'm sure they will come up with something good. good luck!

Here is the nomination comment I left to nominate you:...............................

Love the blogs!
I came here to nominate a blog for the makeover.... I have to do it! Her posts are great and I enjoy reading what she writes, but the pages could use something... I am sure the 2 of you could help this sweet soul out......

Her blog site is: http://dixonsturkey.blogspot.com

I tinker around with mine so much I am sure someone would scream "foul" but if for some freaky reason, I would win, I would gladly donate my makeover to Dixon.

Thanks for running this contest for the bloggers in need out here in "bloggerspace."

Sincerely,
Witty Writer Gal
