LJ Idol Vote - Week 28

Please vote for my whimsical cat-inspired piece in this week's LJ Idol. It's going to be another tight race! You can vote in the embedded poll below.

A few words from clauderainsrm:

We have been holding on the edge of the Top 50 for long enough, it’s time to take the plunge.

Two contestants missed the deadline, and did not have any remaining byes left in their arsenal. Which, considering that the latest either of them had used one was at Week 6, I’d say holding on for this long was nothing short of impressive.

It would be impressive even if you discounted the quality of writing that they brought to the competition every week - and I wouldn’t do that. Because it was always something awesome.

They will definitely be missed. Leaving us this week (in 51st and 50th place in Season 9 respectively) are
karmasoup and mamas_minion

I hope that we will continue to see both of you in the Home Game, and hanging around in the Green Room, when you are able.

As for the rest of you - CONGRATULATIONS!

You are officially the Top 49!

Take a moment to pat yourselves on the back, jump around, dance… whatever it is that you want to do to celebrate this accomplishment. Maybe go grab a stranger in the street like it was V-E Day!

You’ve earned it.

Of course, there is no rest when it comes to Idol. So we still have a poll to deal with - and more eliminations.

This week we are losing 1 of the contestants in the Redemption Tribe and the 3 lowest vote-getters from the main tribe.

The Top 50 has been reached. Who will be standing at the Top 40? That is for the voters to decide.

For those interested in having a say in who receives immunity this week - check out the Home Game:

There are a ton of great entries this week - so I hope that you take the time to let people know of about all of the fantastic things there are for them to read!

Read. Comment. And vote for your favorites!

The poll closes Thursday, Nov 20th at 9pm EDT

Good luck to everyone!

Looking for Philcon Panel Ideas

Philcon is coming up on Friday, and I'm going to be on a panel about crowdfunding. Those of you who have run crowdfunding campaigns on sites like Kickstarter, Indiegogo and the like, what worked and what didn't? And would you mind filling out a quick 5-question survey so I can go in with the benefits of your experiences as well as your own? I'm setting this as public, so go ahead and share it with any folks you know who ran a crowdfunding campaign, whether it was successful or not.
