Breaking news—for the fourth consecutive year, this blog has been honored with a nomination in the Lexiophiles Top Language Professional Blog competition.
I’m hoping for another top-10 appearance, but like Miss Velma Kelly in Chicago, I simply cannot do it alone*. I would be very grateful if you (and your Facebook friends, Twitter followers, colleagues, children, and in-laws) voted for me. Here’s how, in one easy step: Click on the badge and select “Fritinancy” in the alphabetical list.
Yes, it’s just that easy!
I cannot tell a lie: The stakes in this contest are low, the financial rewards nonexistent. But my professional honor, and the honor of all name developers, is at stake. Why? Because the list of nominees is packed with translators, whereas Fritinancy represents exactly half of all the naming blogs in the running. (The other nominee is my esteemed colleague The Name Inspector. He’s very good, but my selflessness extends only so far.) Let’s win this one for the namers!
And just look at that handsome set of Lexiophiles badges over in the right rail! Wouldn’t a fourth one create a pleasing symmetry? Of course it would. So vote for Fritinancy!
While you’re on the Lexiophiles site, you may also choose to vote for your favorite Language Learning Blog, Facebook page, and Twitter account. (Yes, once again I neglected to nominate my own Twitter account. Will one of you please take care of that task for me next year?)
You can vote only once in each category, so make it count! Voting closes at midnight (German time) on May 28; results will be published May 31.
I thank you for your support.
* That’s right: I am shamelessly sweetening the deal by throwing in some Zeta-Jones T&A (and gams).
