27Apr062006 Photobloggies Nominations Open

I have never posted photos here to win any awards or the ego boast that I get when you tell me that you like what I am doing. BUT I will say that the more people that come to this site, the more paid photo work I am getting. So this here comes the plea… If you like the photos you see here and are a regular visitor, go to the 2006 Photobloggies site and nominate me for whatever categories you see fit. May I suggest the “Best Kept Secret” or the “Best American Photoblog” categories for starts :)

Here is a link to the 2006 Photobloggies site. And this is the URL you should use to nominate my blog for any of the categories

Thanks to any of you who actually do go nominate!
