It's Voting Time Again! Koufax Awards

Well, the Academy Awards may be over, but don't let it get you down. It's time to vote for the more exciting Koufax Awards, given to the best "lefty" blogger.

This year, I have once again been nominated in two categories: Best Single Issue Blog and Best Expert blog.


The best thing about the Koufax awards isn't that I have a snowball's chance in hell of winning, but they provide the chance to read the best writing out there in the blogosphere. In addition to checking out the categories in which I've been nominated, take a day off of actually working (or a night off of TV) and check out the blogs in these other categories as well:

Best Blog (non-professional)
Best Blog -- Sponsored or Professional
Best Blog Community
Best Writing
Best New Blog
Most Deserving of Wider Recognition
Best Post
Best Series
Best Group Blog
Most Humorous Blog
Most Humorous Post
Best State or Local Blog
Best Commenter


As for me, if you like what you read here, go ahead and vote for me -- in both categories if you have time, or only in Best Single Issue Blog, if you don't. Again, I most likely won't win, but I will know that someone out there likes me (in addition to Mom), and strangers who see all the votes I'm getting will come calling to find out what this Confined Space thing is.

How To Vote

Just to to the Best Single Issue Blog and/or Best Expert blog page, scroll all the way down the page to the bottom of the comments and leave a comment with the following words: "Confined Space." Feel free to embellish with kind words as well.

Or if you'd rather not leave an identifiable public comment you can also just send an e-mail to Mary Beth or Dwight.

Be Appreciative

Oh, and by the way, this is all brought to you by the kind folks at Wampum, who, like me, are crazy enough to kill themselves just for the betterment of personkind. But it also costs them a bit of money (bandwidth and other such stuff that us smaller bloggers don't have to worry about). So if you discover any new blogs that change you life, consider donating a bit of loose change (upper left of their site).
