This is a "Blogging-Oh-the-Places-You-Will-Go" moment…if you could hear me right now, squeals of excitement would be greenhouse effecting all over the place!! See? I’m so excited I’m not even making sense!
Bullets…let’s do a bulleted list so I can FOCUS PEOPLE:
- Recently wrote about one of the coolest things to ever happen in my (ahem…cough cough) "blogging career"
- Prior to that, I posted a series of photos when my son learned how to fly, defying the very law of gravity.
- Amber (God bless her) commented about a photo contest I might want to submit those pictures to (THANK YOU, AMBER!!!!)
And Nikon is posting three of the ones I’ve submitted in their gallery:
When Stephen learned how to fly
Before she went through the "change"
Clowin’ around upside down
(Round-off, back handsprings commencing…NOW!)
This will end up being a popularity contest–YOUR CLICKS MATTER–and words don’t BEGIN to express how badly I want to win. There are thousands of pictures competing for 60 prizes…thousands that have had time to receive clicks for weeks before mine!
Please…would you take a few seconds to click through to the images? AND…if you’re feeling generous, I am humbly and boldly (but not presumptuously AT ALL) asking you to either send the photo links to your address book or maybe post ’em and tell your readers you’re trying to help out a friend?
I’ll pay you back with links back to your site in a post or my sidebar or SOMETHING! (I’m open to suggestions for paybacks 🙂 ).
I know you’re busy…I KNOW you’ve got other things to do…but…I would be ever grateful. AND…if you post your own pictures and they’re added to the gallery, I’ll be happy to click through to yours, too!
Thank you…I’ve never meant that more sincerely than I do right now :).
That is so awesome, Robin! Great photos. I clicked on all of them. I wish Typepad wasn’t acting so stupid today.
Clicked and will re-tweet ya right now.
Oh, and the caterpillar one is gorgeous and I love the action shot you caught!
How very exciting! Congratulations!
I would click away but I am just getting white page when I do, don;t know if it is the link or this new version of firefox I have. I will come back later and try again.
For now I’m sending positive thoughts your way!
You have been clicked. Great photos!
I can’t see the pics on the Nikon gallery without upgrading to Flash Player 9.0…no time for that now. sorry
Yay, Robin! I’ll bet this is the photo contest I friend said I should check into, and I forgot. Can you shoot me an email and tell me what’s involved in entering?
CAN’T WAIT to meet you Friday!!! I’m not going to the pre-conference stuff now, instead I’ll drive up Friday morning.
Congrats Robin! I’ll probably not remember to put the links in my post, but I am going to set a reminder on google reader and see if it works (I don’t have the energy to write now… bed time!)
I stumbled onto your blog this afternoon, I’ll be happy to ‘click.’ 🙂
Fantastic pics! I will check back often for sure. Good luck!
Robin, I would love to help, but I’ve tried clicking on the links at least 3 times already and I get nothing. I’ve uploaded the flash player and all I get is a blank page. needless to say, I’m a bit aggravated with the computer right now.
I love all your pics. That butterfly has amazing color. See, that’s the kind of thing I can’t catch with my point and shoot. My own post is up, too.
Here’s hoping!!! 🙂
just clicking on them gives you points?
they popped right up. Nice!!
Robin, I went and clicked on the pictures. I read the rules of the contest while at the Nikon site, just so I could know how I could vote for you or give you points (or whatever), but it didn’t say anything about the more clicks you get, the more points. It said that viewers, etc. come back on a certain date (I think June 25th) and vote for who they want the winner to be. Am I correct? Do we just need to write a date down on our calendars to go back and vote? Anyway, I hope you’re one of the winners. It sounds like you want to be pretty bad! I can almost feel the “spazzing” out in the post. Let me know what we should all do about voting. I’ll be happy to comply.
Hey Robin! Long time no “see”. My hubby deleted all my favorites and I just found you again. Looks like it was just in time to help. 🙂 I love the “before she became a butterfly” pic. Good luck! I also understood the rules as Peculiar did above. Here’s what it said:
Beginning MAY 23, you’ll be able to upload your moving moments to the Nikon D60 site — http://www.ashtonsd60.com. On JUNE 25 you, the public, can vote on your favorite pictures to determine the sixty winners that will receive a D60 camera and the one Grand Prize winner.
The Moving Moments Contest Gallery is for everyone, and everyone who visits and votes will help determine who wins.
HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK!
Maybe you should send a reminder email/post to all your readers on the day of voting. Just an idea! 🙂 Good luck!
Wow, beautiful pics! You’re a great photographer, you deserve to win.
I had no idea you were so photo-talented! Awesome shots, Robin!
Clickin’ as fast as my little mouse will let me over here!
