It’s David versus Goliath… but in this case YOU can help determine the outcome!
Our grassroots startup has been nominated for a 2010 Webby Award in the super-competitive Social Networking category. This means we’re going head-to-head with some of the Web’s largest sites (including Twitter and Digg.com) to win both the “Judges Award” and the “People Voice Award,” which is voted on by the public.
Your vote will help the BakeSpace community show that our grassroots site can beat the big guys head-on.
So please take a minute to vote, and start by watching the video and reading the quick instructions below.
The Webby Awards the Web’s equivalent of the Oscars… but without the long speeches. Being nominated as one of just five finalists in the Social Media category is a big deal for any Web site, especially a grassroots community like BakeSpace!
As a Webby nominee, we’re also eligible to win both the judges award and the “People’s Voice Award,” which is voted on by the public. We need your help to win… so please take a moment to cast your vote for BakeSpace.
The deadline to cast your vote is April 29th, but the sooner, the better. We’re competing against some huge, well-financed companies like Twitter & Digg, so we really appreciate your support!
