    A very nice informative blog. Thank you Dana!

  • Keller Hawthorne

    Sorry for the late response Michael – just too many things going on at once. There are several ways to add links or html code to facebook. One way is to add a specific html application that you can add to your sidebar. Just search for html applications within FB. Once installed, you can copy the code from your nominee banner and add it. Another way would be to add a link to your “Notes” or the top box on the left of your sidebar.

    I love Dana Slatkin's site. It's amazing and very refreshing. With todays' lifestyle concentrating so heavily on eating the right foods for total health I really enjoyed Dana Slatkin's perspective. I also love her approach that it doesn't have to be expensive to be great.

    eek! have a couple of friends who would like to vote for a contestant, but following the link is not showing the blog contestants anymore. can you provide me a link that works tonight? thanks!

  • emily

    Nice variety of entrants. My one comment as a person looking to build a WP site, I would have liked if entrants provided the following information…

    1-site built on a free or premium theme? name of template used
    2-did they design site themselves or have custom themes designed?

    That information would give me a good idea what to expect in my purchase decision. In any event, I think the contest was a good idea.


  • Keller Hawthorne

    I send out the weekly standings every Friday in my newsletter. The contest ends this Friday at Midnight and next week I will announce the winners.

  • Keller Hawthorne

    The voting system tracks voters by IP Address and Cookies. If you see the “Thanks for Voting” message, it means your computer or IP is already logged as a voter. If your friends happen to use the same computer or internet connection in your home, they will see that message. If they use their own computer and IP address – they will be able to vote.

  • Keller Hawthorne

    Thanks for the tips Emily! I will be doing some surveys of the nominees after the contest ends and I will be sure to ask these questions.

  • bbrian017

    wow that went really fast. I still haven't found your subscribe is it just your normal one here on your site. You have a lot happening lol. I will try to market a bit more before it ends open up some old thread perhaps blog about it one more time.

  • Keller Hawthorne
