  1. I tried to vote for you. First, it told me I could only vote if I logged in using Facebook or Twitter. Real men don’t tweet, so I clicked the Facebook button — several times — but nothing happened.
    So it’s just like a real election…

    • Larry! Hi! Hey, it wouldn’t BE a real election if it worked, right? I’ve asked the person who emailed me regarding the nomination to address the voting problems. And like you, I’m irked that one has to be a twit or a Face to vote. I don’t twit either, and find Facebook way too rude and intrusive.

      Thanks for trying, anyway. It’s wonderful to hear from you!

  2. I also tried to vote but had problems. Will try again in another few days as I see we can vote for like a month or so. Hope you win…you soooo deserve it!!!

    • Thanks, ABCs. I’ll post as soon as I hear from Healthline regarding the voting issues. Hope this finds you feeling well and ready for the holidays! ;)

  3. I have voted for you and then found I was also listed! :-) Yay us! They don’t make it easy to vote though!

    • Well, congratulations, Penguin! I’ll certainly head on over there and vote for you, if I can. I guess I’ll have to grit my teeth and open my Facebook page, but for you, it’s worth it. Good luck! You deserve to win!

      • Thanks – reciprocal vote appreciated! :-) I’m not sure if I voted for you or not yesterday – I certainly thought I did … but if I didn’t then I definitely have today!! I don’t recall getting the thank you for your vote confirmation yesterday that I got today – hence the doubt!

  4. Woo-hoo! Congratulations.

    • Thanks, Cathy! Haven’t heard much from you lately. Here’s hoping all is well, that you’re feeling great, and that you and your family will have a lovely Christmas.

  5. Well done, meine liebe Zaunkönigen! Congratulations! I’ll give the voting a go. Meanwhile, wishing you and your family fröhliche Festtage und einen guten Rutsch!!

  6. Way to go Wren! I was nominated also!

  7. Tried to vote again today. I click the “Vote” link, then the demand to log on to Facebook comes up. I click on that and nothing happens. After clicking several times, I get no logon screen and the vote tally hasn’t incremented.

    • Dang, Larry. I did email Healthline about this; the person who wrote back said they made the votes go through Facebook and Twitter so they could more accurately tally them. Yeah, I wasn’t very satisfied with that answer, either, but I guess we’re stuck with it. Thanks for trying to vote for RheumaBlog anyhoo! Consider yourself hugged!

  8. Congrats Wren, I tried to vote but couldn’t. I will try again later.
