I’m crazy excited: I’m one of ten finalists to win a trip to Australia! Now I just need people to vote for me so I can win! Voting ends TONIGHT, at midnight CST– mere hours away!
The backstory: I am a huge fan of travelling and as such enjoy maintaining a profile at www.whereivebeen.com (a facebook app that has expanded into its own site.) Recently they had a contest to win a trip to Australia, and every photo you uploaded entered you into the drawing one more time. I uploaded… a lot of photos. Now, they have selected ten finalists to compete for the grand prize, and I’m one of them!
The grand prize winner is going to be determined by a vote; polling began Wednesday night. I think I have a very real shot at this, but, well, I need to get people to vote for me! The trip I’m competing for is this one, and I’d really like to go!
To vote for me, you need an account at whereivebeen.com . It’s a fairly simple process to connect a facebook account to the site and create a profile that way, but you can also create a profile just for whereivebeen.com if you prefer. It’s free, and they don’t send any spam; I’ve been using the site for a while.
Once you have an account, you’ll have to go to the main page. Underneath the flash-animated map there is a blue box with the words “Their fate is in your hands!” You should be able to find my picture and name in the box, and click on me to vote for me. I’ve got red hair and am wearing a green scarf in front of a green background, and, of course, my name is Laura. If you have any questions, email me! Seriously. I’ll help.
It costs no money and very little time, and it would mean a great deal to me if I won. Please pass this along as much as you can, as well.
Thanks in advance!
